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 study the damaging effect of different diode laser settings on vocal folds 7 days after injury in a rabbit model.
Pulsatile tinnitus (PT) due to sigmoid sinus wall anomalies (SSWA) is a common health disorder. The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficiency of simple sigmoid sinus bony wall repair on tinnitus relief and psychological improvement.
Phosphaturic mesenchymal tumour (PMT) of the paranasal sinuses is a rare tumour that is associated with oncogenous osteomalacia causing predominant musculoskeletal symptoms. We present a series of eight patients diagnosed to have PMT of the paranasal sinuses with varied presentation and highlight the appropriate evaluation required to arrive at the diagnosis.
Sinus maxillaris is an important anatomical formation in many branches of dentistry due to its proximity to the field of work. Various methods have been used in literature to measure the maxillary sinus volume (MSV) such as cadavers, stereology, two-dimensional conventional radiographs, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The aim of this study is to evaluate the change of maxillary sinus volume according to age and gender with MIMICS 19.0 (Materialise HQ Technologielaan, Leuven, Belg...
To compare short- and long-term quality of life (QOL) scores in patients undergoing mandibular resection and reconstruction.
To evaluate the effect of inferior turbinate outfracture on nasolacrimal transit time by saccharin test.
Transoral resection of Zenker's diverticulum (TORD) was first reported in 2010. We present results for our modified approach to transoral resection (MTORD)-full-thickness cricopharyngeal myectomy, diverticulum sac excision, and suture closure of the pharyngotomy-and evaluate its safety and efficacy compared to endoscopic stapling and open approaches.
The advanced lung cancer inflammation index (ALI) is a useful tool for prediction of outcome in several malignancies. However, to date, its significance in head and neck cancer patients has not been evaluated.
Preoperative localization of a parathyroid adenoma is usually obtained by the combination of ultrasound and scintigraphy with technetium-99m methoxyisobutylisonitrile. We evaluated the role of F18-fluorocholine in neck positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging as a novel tool for localizing parathyroid adenomas.
To conduct a national needs assessment using a structured approach to identify and prioritize technical skills and procedures in otorhinolaryngology (ORL) for simulation-based training.
The promotion of neovascularisation is a crucial aspect of carcinogenesis. The study evaluates the microvascular density (MVD) and expression of hypoxia-induced factor (HIF-1α) in hypertrophic vocal fold (VF) lesions of different histopathological states including non-dysplastic, low-grade, high-grade dysplasia and invasive glottic cancer.
To determine the incidence and distribution of care in relation to urgent otorhinolaryngologic pathologies by the different medical specialist units.
There is no guideline or consensus on preoperative radiologic imaging modality despite the fact that it has a vital importance in appropriate candidacy selection of cochlear implantation. We aimed to find out the role of high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on surgical planning, intraoperative technique in cochlear implant candidates.
Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis is a disease caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). HPV is frequently localised in the larynx. The disease tends to recur and frequent intervention is usually required. Management modules include surgical intervention using microdebriders or laser ablation as well as adjuvant treatments which aim mainly at maintaining an adequate airway and secondly to manage dysphonia caused by the growth on the vocal folds. In this pilot study, another surgical modality is trialled...
The European Laryngological Society (ELS) has published a revised classification for benign laryngotracheal stenosis (LTS), based on their degree, longitudinal extension, and associated comorbidities. We retrospectively applied this classification to pediatric patients treated in four referral centers to assess its reliability in predicting surgical outcomes.
Stress has been suspected to play a role in rhinitis. The role of stress on nasal patency has been not yet elucidated. The aim was to evaluate the potential effects of stress on nasal patency in healthy subjects.
To describe the primary effects of electromyographic biofeedback therapy on swallowing via a systematic review.
We conduct this study to evaluate the clinical and functional impact of Nitric Oxide Synthase 3 (NOS3) T-786C and G894T genetic variants on nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) risk and progression in a Tunisian population.
Early detection of residual disease (RD) after (chemo)radiation for oropharyngeal (OPC) is crucial. Surveillance of neck nodes with FDG-PET/CT has been studied extensively, whereas its value for local RD remains less clear. We aim to evaluate the diagnostic value of post-treatment FDG-PET/CT in detecting local RD and the outcome of patients with local RD.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the ossicular chain erosions (OCE) in chronic otitis media patients with cholesteatoma (COM-C) or without cholesteatoma (COM).
Acute pharyngitis is an uncomfortable disorder mostly caused by viruses and for which antibiotics are unwarranted. This study compared lozenges containing ectoine, a natural extremolyte, with hyaluronic acid lozenges and hypertonic saline gargle for symptomatic treatment of acute viral pharyngitis.
The sino-nasal outcomes test-22 (SNOT-22) represents the reference questionnaire to assess patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). As weak correlations between objective CRS parameters and SNOT-22 total score have been observed, factor analyses have aimed to identify underlying factorial structures. However, ambiguous factor loadings and problematic item-domain assignments have resulted. Moreover, such factor analyses have mainly been performed in non-European CRS patients, while European data remain sp...
The aim of this study is to investigate serum and tissue procalcitonin (PCT) levels in patients with nasal polyps.
