Laser myringoplasty for treatment of tympanic membrane atelectasis using a hand-held flexible fiber CO2 laser is feasible and may improve hearing immediately and long term, but it is not useful in severe adherent atElectasis.

Use of the KTP laser in totally endoscopic cholesteatoma surgery.

The combination of KTP laser use with endoscopic visualisation is effective for minimising the risk of residual disease using a minimally invasive surgical approach.

Laser-induced tissue remodeling within the tympanic membrane

A controlled laser-induced collagen remodeling within defined areas of the tympanic membrane is demonstrated, suggesting this method might be the prophylactic solution for chronic inflammatory ear pathologies related to decreased TM tension.

Minimally invasive approaches utilising novel techniques may be key to reducing peri-operative morbidity and improving the overall patient experience.

Prevalence and characteristics of diagnostic groups amongst 1034 patients seen in ENT practices for dizziness.

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo was the most frequent diagnosis in all age groups, including those over 70 years, and overall, in this study of patients referred to ENT for dizziness.

Preoperative BRAF mutation is predictive of occult contralateral carcinoma in patients with unilateral papillary thyroid microcarcinoma.

Total thyroidectomy, including the contralateral lobe, should be considered for the treatment of unilateral PTMC if preoperative BRAF mutation is positive and/or if the observed lesion presents as a multifocal tumor in the unilateral lobe.

Symptom-Disease Pair Analysis of Diagnostic Error (SPADE): a conceptual framework and methodological approach for unearthing misdiagnosis-related harms using big data

A method to quantify and monitor diagnostic errors using an approach called ‘Symptom-Disease Pair Analysis of Diagnostic Error’ (SPADE), which has the potential to transform diagnostic quality and safety across a broad range of clinical problems and settings.

Integrity of the pars tensa collagenous layer thus appears to be essential for the proper mechanical functioning of the physiologic TM.

Treatment of retraction pockets (RP) and cholesteatomas depends on their nature and evolvement and the size of mastoid pneumatization, and emphasizing small “radicals” in sclerotic mastoids.

Tympanic Membrane Changes in School-Aged Children

In the total population, individual tympanic membrane findings were normal as follows: color 90.7%, position 93.8%, mobility 93.7, structure 91.8% and position of pars flaccida 88.5%.

A new classification oflectasis is introduced, which enables a more clinically relevant correlation between stage of disease and clinical sequelae and technical difficulty at surgery.
