The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 29 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books.
BioPortfolio aims to cross reference relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with selected topics - speciality.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
To identify factors associated with positive margins following surgical management of sinonasal squamous cell carcinoma (SNSCC), especially with regard to endoscopic treatment.
There is a lack of evidence concerning the efficacy of oral corticosteroids (OCS) as a postoperative treatment for patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP). The objective of our study was to determine the short-term additive benefit of postoperative OCS in CRSwNP patients.
The purpose of this meta-analysis was to discuss the efficacy and safety of bioabsorbable steroid-impregnated implants following endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) for chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) patients.
To determine what measures an otolaryngology-head and neck surgery team might adopt to decrease the incidence of surgical site infection (SSI) on a short-term surgical mission. Despite concerns about safety and efficacy, short-term surgical missions remain the predominant structure for humanitarian surgical care in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). Hospitals in high-income countries strive to improve surgical outcomes through implementation of World Health Organization (WHO) safe surgery guidelines. ...
To determine differences in time course of care based on major insurance types for patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC).
To evaluate the usefulness of diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI) and intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) in the differentiation of sinonasal malignant tumors (SNMTs) with different histological types.
To explore patient values associated with their comfort level with surgical trainees and attending surgeon absence from the operating room.
To identify the clinical predictors of descending necrotizing mediastinitis (DNM) secondary to deep neck infections (DNIs) before treatment.
PENTOCLO treatment, associating pentoxifylline, tocopherol, and clodronate, resolves radiation-induced fibrosis. The main aim of the present study was to prospectively assess efficacy in mandibular osteoradionecrosis (ORN).
Studies have demonstrated improvement in Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD) symptomatology after functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS); however, factors associated with ETD symptom alteration have not been elucidated. This study evaluated factors associated with improvement and normalization of ETD symptoms after FESS.
To compare awake endoscopy with Müller's maneuver (MM) during both sitting and supine positions, with drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) as regard determination of different levels, patterns, and degrees of collapse of the upper airway in adult patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) play a crucial role in advancing patient care within otolaryngology-head and neck surgery (OTL-HNS), yet studies have shown the reporting of these trials needs improvement. Here, we evaluate the completeness of intervention reporting of RCTs in OTL-HNS and evaluate whether the publication of the Template for Intervention Description and Replication (TIDieR) checklist has influenced intervention reporting.
One risk of radiation therapy exposure (XRTe) is second primary thyroid cancer (SPTC). Previous reports examined this in children, but no population-based studies have explored XRTe and SPTC across all ages or stratified by histological subtypes.
Olfactory dysfunction is a common problem. However, too little attention has been paid to questionnaires used to evaluate quantitative olfactory dysfunction. Therefore, the current study aimed to develop a simple self-reported Mini Olfactory Questionnaire (Self-MOQ) for the screening of quantitative olfactory dysfunction in clinical practice.
To evaluate whether elective tracheostomy is justified after tumor resection and bilateral neck dissection (ND) and whether application of tracheostomy scoring systems is reliable for planning of postoperative airway management.
We aimed to determine whether there was a difference between core and surface bacteriology of Finnish adults with recurrent or chronic tonsillitis to understand whether a surface swab is worthwhile and which bacteria are involved.
Over 10 years have passed since the Clinical Practice Guideline: Acute Otitis Externa (CPG-AOE) was first published, and it has been several years since its update. We sought to assess clinicians' adherence as well as referral patterns.
Literature describing neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) photocoagulation and sclerotherapy for laryngeal venous malformations (VMs) is sparse. Here we present a case in which an extensive laryngeal VM in a 28-year-old female was managed through a combination of four serial Nd:YAG laser photocoagulation sessions and four bleomycin injections over the course of 2 years. The treatment plan resulted in resulted in noticeable lesion ablation, mucosalization, and significant improvement in symptoms. To...
To evaluate the long-term audiometric outcomes, sound localization abilities, binaural benefits, and tinnitus assessment of subjects with cochlear implant (CI) after a diagnosis of unilateral severe-to-profound hearing loss.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a DNA virus that causes cancer in multiple sites. Although sexual activity is the primary means of oropharyngeal HPV acquisition, studies suggest HPV transmission through occupational exposure from medical instruments and surgical fumes. We assess if aerosolization of HPV16 DNA via electrocautery places otolaryngologists at risk for exposure.
To evaluate the incidence of chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency in Menière's disease patients and the effect of bilateral percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of the jugular/azygos veins compared to medical therapy.
Survival outcomes for human papillomavirus-associated oropharynx squamous cell carcinoma (HPV + OPSCC) treated with surgery alone are unclear. To increase understanding, we assessed overall survival (OS) outcomes using the national cancer database (NCDB).
Sulcus is an epithelial invagination of the membranous vocal fold. Its phonatory effects are usually attributed to fibrosis, thinning, and/or the absence of the superficial lamina propria (SLP). Surgical treatment is typically focused on reconstruction of the SLP. The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of excision without SLP reconstruction or replacement.
Assess a tablet hearing game as a screening instrument for pediatric hearing loss.
