Electronic nose dataset for beef quality monitoring in uncontrolled ambient conditions.

In recent years, the development of a rapid, simple, and low-cost meat assessment system using an electronic nose (e-nose) has been the concern of researchers. In this data article, we provide a time series dataset that was obtained from a beef quality monitoring experiment using an e-nose in uncontrolled ambient conditions. The availability of this dataset will enable discussion on how to deal wi...

The root cause of physician burnout cannot be solved with resilience efforts Editorial.

A non-endoscopic view of Eiji Yanagisawa, MD, our mentor.

Laryngeal hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia.

Huge neck lymphangioma removed in toto with minimal access.

An unusual case of persistent dysphagia.

In-office sinonasal procedures in the elderly.

Unforeseen consequence of alkaline water therapy for laryngopharyngeal reflux.

Association of Ménière disease with human leukocyte antigen in Taiwanese population.

The etiology of Ménière disease (MD) is multifactorial; genetic factors seem to play an important role. The associations between MD and human leukocyte antigen (HLA) status have been studied previously in several populations and have shown that the HLA alleles imparting susceptibility varied. In the present study, we explored HLA status in Taiwanese patients with definitive MD. HLA was typed via...

KTP-laser-assisted endoscopic management of glomus tympanicum tumors: A case series.

Endoscopic technology is widely used in rhinology and anterior skull base surgery, but it has been less quickly incorporated into otologic practice. The design of the instrumentation forces surgeons to work one-handed and limits depth perception. Nevertheless, endoscopy also offers wide fields of view and access to spaces that are typically difficult to visualize. Its advantages have broadened the...

Endoscopic medialization middle turbinoplasty in endoscopic sinus surgery.

Recurrence of sinonasal disease can be caused by many factors, including lateralization of the middle turbinate as a complication of endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). Different ESS procedures have been tried to prevent this complication. We conducted a prospective study to determine if medialization is an effective means of lateralizing the middle turbinate. Our study population was made up of 142 a...

Evaluation of bendable surgical suction devices made of shape-memory alloy for the endonasal transsphenoid removal of pituitary tumors.

In minimally invasive surgeries, it can be difficult to reach desired anatomic areas with rigid instruments, especially when obstacles are present in the surgical corridor (e.g., during transnasal pituitary surgery). We developed a new kind of suction device constructed of the shape-memory alloy Nitinol (nickel titanium), which is adaptable to a patient's specific anatomy. Use of this device minim...

Diagnosis and treatment of laryngopharyngeal reflux: Use of empirical lansoprazole.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of empirical medical treatment in patients with laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) disease by scoring the findings and symptoms. Hence, 122 patients were examined at the voice laboratory with a laryngovideostroboscopic device, and all results were recorded for further evaluation. Patients were treated with lansoprazole twice a day. All pati...

An unusual presentation of papillary thyroid carcinoma in a pediatric patient: A case report.

Cystic neck masses in the pediatric population are common but rarely concerning for malignancy. Given this typically benign nature, they are frequently managed conservatively. Here we present an unusual case of a waxing and waning cystic neck mass in a pediatric patient. After surgical removal, the mass was found to be metastatic papillary thyroid cancer. This is a unique presentation in the pedia...

Red ear syndrome: Perspectives for the otolaryngologist.

Red ear syndrome (RES) is an unusual, often unrecognized condition that has rarely been reported in the otolaryngology literature despite the presence of symptoms and associated disorders of relevance to the otolaryngologist. When present, RES may have diagnostic value when uncertainties arise in cases of sinus headache and referred otalgia. Despite the appearance of a distinctive red ear, as well...

A fistulating oropharyngeal lesion.

Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is a unifying term for a spectrum of lymphoid expansion entities brought about by immunosuppression. It can present throughout the head and neck, and tonsillar involvement is not limited to children. We report the case of a 67-year-old woman who developed odynophagia associated with putrid halitosis 4 months after she had undergone renal transpla...

Destructive lesion of the temporomandibular joint: A case of tophaceous pseudogout.

Tophaceous pseudogout of the temporomandibular joint is a rare entity that clinically and radiographically mimics neoplastic or infectious conditions. Diagnosis requires histopathologic examination. Given the rarity of this condition, there is a paucity of information pertaining to the surgical approach, reconstructive options, and postoperative outcomes.

Effects of acidic and nonacidic reflux on the eustachian tube: An animal experiment.

We investigated the effects of pepsin/hydrochloric acid and bile acids on eustachian tube function and eustachian tube mucosa in 40 Sprague-Dawley rats. The animals were randomly assigned to groups of 10: one group received pepsin/hydrochloric acid (pepsin/HCl group), another received human bile (human bile group), a third received a mixture of pepsin/HCl and human bile (combination group), and th...

Aggressive fibromatosis of the parotid gland.

Extra-abdominal fibromatosis (EAF) is a rare, locally aggressive tumor that originates in fascial structures. It accounts for less than 0.3% of all tumors diagnosed. Head and neck tumors account for only 7% of those, and only a few cases occurring in the parotid gland have been previously reported. We describe the case of a 34-year-old woman who presented with a painful parotid mass. She was found...

Two sides of the same coin Editorial.

Iatrogenic external auditory canal cholesteatoma with mastoid erosion.
