In the UK, patients with hypopharyngeal carcinoma are managed via a multidisciplinary team approach based on UK National MDT Guidelines. Hypopharyngeal cancer often presents late, 80% of patients presenting with Stage III or IV disease, with PET-CT recommended for these patients to assess for metastases....

A Rare Incidental Encounter of a Foreign Body in the Nasopharynx during Endoscopic Assisted Adenoidectomy

Mahdy Mohammed Nassar

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: July 07, 2022

Otolaryngologists frequently encounter nasal foreign bodies, particularly among children and mentally retarded patients. Upper aerodigestive tract may harbour foreign bodies such as sponges, grains, toy parts, paper and cotton. Majority of inhaled foreign bodies may pass unnoticed and others can be a source of serious morbidity with occasional mortality if not identified on time and properly treated....

Tam Ramsey, MD, Katherine L. Webb, BS, Vilok Desai, BS, Gillian Ridler, BS, Shivaali Maddali, BS, Neil Gildener Leapman, MD and Lisa Galati, MD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 30, 2022

Pharyngocutaneous fistula (PCF) is the most common complication of total laryngectomy. Our objective is to present our compressive neck dressing protocol and demonstrate its effectiveness in reducing the rate of pharyngocutaneous fistula (PCF) development in patients after primary total laryngectomy (TL) and salvage TL....

Exploring the Spectrum of Laryngeal Solitary Fibrous Tumor: A Comparative Analysis of 31 Cases with Systematic Review

Leoncini Giuseppe, MD, Zanetti Livio, MD, Centonze Giovanni, Msc and Milione Massimo, MD, PhD

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: April 28, 2022

The present review is based on a critical literature revision and aimed to identify the overall clinical behavior of laryngeal solitary fibrous tumor (SFT). Laryngeal hemangiopericytomas (HPC) were included, according to both their re-classification as the SFT’s cellular variant and the NAB2-STAT6 fusion gene. A case series was builded including a new case and other 30 previously published cases of laryngeal SFTs (Medline 1956 to 2021) with comparative purpose. Immunohistochemistry and molecul...

Two Stage Surgical Resection of a Retrochiasmatic Craniopharyngioma: A Case Study

Kaitlin I McArthur, BS, Ethan Miles, BS, Hector Perez, MD and Kenneth De Los Reyes, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: May 11, 2022

Here we report on a rare case of a retrochiasmic craniopharyngioma that required a two stage surgical resection to achieve near total resection. The pterionalorbital approach was chosen for initial resection, given the small size of the sinus corridor on imaging, but due to fear of damaging local structures complete resection was not achieved. The patient returned to the operating room 12 days following the first surgery for a combined neurosurgeryotolaryngology approach for endonasal endoscopic...

Chronic Rhinosinusitis and Coronary Heart Disease: A Population-Based Study

Chiung-Chang Lin, MD, Jen-Kai Weng, MD, Tsung-Han Yang, MD, Cheng-Ming Luo and Yung-An Tsou

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: April 07, 2022

Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a well-known heterogeneous disorder due to its potentially infectious status along with long-term inflammation of the nose, paranasal sinuses, and lining of the nasal passages, which lasts for 12 consecutive weeks or longer. Although the definite pathophysiological mechanism is not clear, recent studies have postulated bacterial infections with biofilm or fungal colonization as the pathophysiological mechanisms. Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a critical public he...
