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.
Radiation induced hypothyroidism (RIHT) is one of the commonest late side effects of radiation therapy and is seen in more than half of patients and affects quality of life significantly. We report our initial experience on feasibility of free microvascular transfer of thyroid gland out of radiation field to prevent development of RIHT.
Several reactions leading to numerous effects are regulated by IL-22. However, the relationship between IL-22 and immunopathogensis of allergic rhinitis (AR) has been rarely investigated. The aim of the present study was to investigate the levels of IL-22 and IL-17A in AR patients and their association with clinical severity of persistent allergic rhinitis (PAR).
To compare between results of bacterial cellulose graft myringoplasty and fat graft myingoplasty in patients had mild or moderate size safe perforation.
Laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) is strongly associated with tobacco use, but recent reports suggest an increasing incidence of LSCC in patients without traditional risk factors, suggesting an alternative etiology of tumorigenesis. The purpose of this study is to characterize this non-smoking population and to compare immunohistochemical markers in tumor specimens from non-smokers and smokers with LSCC.
To explore the impact of H-uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (H-UPPP) in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and gain insights into the potential mechanism underlying improvement by H-UPPP.
To confirm the pre-treatment diagnosis of parapharyngeal space malignancy could aid the treatment plan.
To evaluate surgical outcomes for chronic otitis media with mucosa defect underwent titanium ossicular chain reconstruction (OCR) in single stage canal wall down tympanoplasty (CWD).
Malignant cutaneous adnexal tumors (MCAT) are rare and comprise a heterogeneous group of cancers. There have been several studies reviewing prognostic factors of these tumors, but no studies focusing on the head and neck. This study aimed to review a large population based database to evaluate prognostic factors that could impact survival.
The goal of this study was to describe the incidence of and our long-term results in the management of spontaneous temporal bone CSF leak and to determine if there is any association with an increase in body mass index (BMI).
To evaluate radiographic findings in US Navy recruits found to have asymmetric sensorineural hearing loss (ASNHL) during routine medical screening.
The primary aim of this study was to investigate the effects of preemptive a single dose IV ibuprofen on postoperative 48 h opioid consumption and postoperative pain in patients undergoing thyroidectomy.
The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery regards randomized controlled trials as class A evidence. A novel method to determine the robustness of outcomes in trials is the fragility index. This index represents the number of patients whose status would have to change from a non-event to an event to make a statistically significant result non-significant.
Internal carotid artery (ICA) pseudoaneurysms are associated with high mortality if lack of proper management. Patients with ICA pseudoaneurysms in the sphenoid sinus often visit a hospital's ear, nose and throat (ENT) department due to nasal bleeding. In such cases, simple examination and therapy will lead to misdiagnosis.
In this report, we present a unique case of intraneural squamous cell carcinoma of unknown primary found within the facial nerve and the proposed algorithms for diagnosis and management of progressive idiopathic facial paralysis.
Percutaneous dilatation tracheostomy (PDT) has several advantages over traditional surgical tracheostomy. However, it is still performed using bronchoscopy guidance.
To evaluate outcomes and survival in young patients with oral tongue cancer (OTC).
Previous studies have not examined the potential role of endonasal hemostatic agents in facilitating growth of fungal species. We aim to determine the possibility of these to serve as a nutrient source for fungal growth.
To build a murine model for tobacco smoke and electronic cigarette vapor exposure to characterize the inflammatory and immune responses in the larynx.
Deficiencies in airway management knowledge can result in harm, especially in tracheostomy patients. Our objective is to assess the degree of knowledge in different medical specialties, before and after targeted airway education.
To determine the preferred methods of communicating biopsy results for patients in our comprehensive otolaryngology clinic, and to examine factors associated with preferring remote vs. in-person communication of results.
Parathyroidectomy can be subtotal or total with an autograft for the treatment of renal hyperparathyroidism. In both cases, it may be extended with bilateral thymectomy and total or partial thyroidectomy. Thymectomy may be recommended in combination with parathyroidectomy in order to prevent mediastinal recurrence. Also, the occurrence of thyroid disease observed in patients with hyperparathyroidism is poorly understood and the incidence of cancer is controversial. The aim of the present study was to report...
Plasmacytoid squamous cell carcinoma is an especially aggressive variant of squamous cell carcinoma that has previously been described in the literature as a variant of oral cancers and most extensively, in vulvular , transitional cell, and urothelial carcinomas [2,13,15-20]. In this case report, we present a 36-year-old man with 6 to 8 weeks of a progressively enlarging mass over the lateral third of his clavicle, acromion process, and deltoid. The mass was resected, and the supraclavicular defect was...
