Omoregie J Idugboe, Babatope A Kolawole and Ebidisemene L Totyen

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 03, 2018

Among the most common chronic disorders of modern time, diabetes mellitus remains unique because of its multifactorial ramifications. Apart from the well-described association between congenital deafness and maternally inherited type of diabetes mellitus, the relationship between type 2 diabetes and hearing loss has been the subject of debate since Jordao reported a case of hearing loss with incipient diabetes coma almost 150 years ago. Documentation of this relationship among adult diabetics in...

Antrochoanal Polyp: A Literature Update

Francisco Andre Escamilla Islas, Jose Luis TreviƱo Gonzalez and Jose Martin Martinez Camarillo

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: October 17, 2018

The antrochoanal polyp (ACP) is a unilateral, solitary, pear shaped mass with a cystic stalk, differing from the inflammatory polyps in the formation of a constricted sac, half in the maxillary antrum and the other half in the nose, extruding in a variable extent to the nasopharynx. The ACP has a clinic diagnosis, with image studies as the CT scan and the MRI for the differential diagnosis. By microscopy ACP lacks minor mucoserous glands and a well-developed eosinophilic inflammatory infiltrate,...

Study of the Suture-Patch Device through the Tongue for Sleep Apnea using Fluid-Structure Interaction Modeling

Yang Liu, Yitung Chen, Woosoon Yim and Robert C Wang

Article Type: RESEARCH ARTICLE | First Published: September 24, 2018

The prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has been growing over the last few decades, but the treatment outcome differs from person to person. Interest in patient-specific modeling has increased substantially. The availability of detailed clinical data together with efficient numerical methods has now made the fluid-structure interaction modeling feasible. The current study uses 3-D two-way fluid-structure interaction to provide simulation results of the sleep apnea symptom in a female pat...

A Prospective Study of Trans-Septal Suture Technique in Stabalising the Middle Turbinate and Preventing Adhesions after Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Salil Sood and Deepak Gupta

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: July 13, 2018

Over the years the importance of middle turbinate has increased with the wider use of nasal endoscopes in the management of the sino nasal diseases. Lateralization of the middle turbinate may cause scarring & adhesions which may affect the results of the surgery. We have been using a simple technique of placing a transeptal suture to stabilise the middle turbinate and prevent adhesions between middle turbinate and the lateral wall of the nose. We have used this technique in prospective study, wh...

Silent Sinus Syndrome: A Case Report and Review of Literature

Sumana CV and Suhel Hasan

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: July 12, 2018

Silent sinus syndrome is a rare clinical entity affecting the maxillary sinus, causing progressive enophthalmos and hypoglobus resulting from retraction of maxillary sinus walls with increase in the orbital volume. We report a case of a 29-year-old male who presented with painless enophthalmos, without any disturbances in vision or ocular movements, with no history of sinusitis in the past....
