Endonasal instrumentation and aerosolization risk in the era of COVID‐19: simulation, literature review, and proposed mitigation strategies
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to simulate aerosolization events over a range of endoscopic procedures to obtain an evidence‐based aerosol risk assessment.
Particle repositioning maneuver for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo
TLDR
The particle repositioning maneuver (PRM) relocates the free‐floating particles from the posterior semicircular canal back into the utricle, relieving the patient of bothersome, often long‐standing vertigo.
Airborne Aerosol Generation During Endonasal Procedures in the Era of COVID-19: Risks and Recommendations
TLDR
Transnasal drill and cautery use is associated with significant airborne particulate matter production in the range of 1 to 10 μm under surgical conditions, with significant aerosol escape seen during nasal endoscopy, speech, and sneezing.
Repair of chronic tympanic membrane perforations with long‐term epidermal growth factor
TLDR
One hundred percent (17 of 17) of treatment group perforations completely healed, however, two new findings with this long dosing scheme were reperforation on long‐term follow‐up and three TMs with cholesteatomas.
The Molecular Biology of Vestibular Schwannomas: Dissecting the Pathogenic Process at the Molecular Level
TLDR
Great strides have been made to identify why vestibular schwannomas develop at the molecular level, and continued research is needed to find targeted therapies with which to treat these tumors.
Facial Nerve Monitoring Parameters As a Predictor of Postoperative Facial Nerve Outcomes after Vestibular Schwannoma Resection
TLDR
Although tumor size was found to independently predict facial nerve outcomes at 1 year, it did not improve the ability to Predict facial nerve function over a model using stimulus intensity and amplitude alone.
Leaving a Lasting Impression: Ear Mold Impressions as Middle Ear Foreign Bodies
TLDR
Although the majority of patients who have ear canal impressions taken experience no adverse outcomes, hearing aid dispensers should perform a thorough history-taking and physical examination to discern those with abnormal anatomy at risk for complications.
Do adults with cochlear implants rely on different acoustic cues for phoneme perception than adults with normal hearing?
TLDR
The weighting strategies of listeners with normal hearing likely support speech recognition best, so efforts in implant design, fitting, and training should focus on developing those strategies.
Particulate Matter in the Posterior Semicircular Canal
TLDR
Particulate matter within the posterior semicircular canal has been identified intraoperatively in patients with BPPV but has also been reported in non‐BPPV patients at the time of translabyrinthine surgery.
Consensus recommendations for current treatments and accelerating clinical trials for patients with neurofibromatosis type 2
TLDR
This manuscript summarizes the expert opinions about current treatments for NF2 associated tumors and recommendations for advancing therapies emerging from that meeting and has the potential for significant clinical advancement not only for patients with NF2 but for thousands of neuro‐oncology patients afflicted with these tumors.
