This study was conducted to compare the diagnostic yields of Ultrasonography-guided core needle biopsy (USG-CNB) and open surgical biopsy (OSB) in head and neck (HN) lymphoma and to identify the factors that shape USG-CNB diagnostic yield.
We read with interest the article by Valesano et al. . As noted in the article, gadolinium-enhanced T1-weighted MRI (GdT1WI) has been the “gold standard” imaging study for many years in the diagnosis of vestibular schwannoma in asymmetric sensorineural hearing loss (ASNHL). In recent years, with improved imaging technology, a push toward non-contrast T2-weighted MRI (T2WI) for screening of patients with ASNHL has been made in an effort to decrease patient exposure to gadolinium, acquisition time, and cost.
Vagal nerve stimulation in conjunction with sound therapy has been proposed as a treatment for subjective tinnitus. The purpose of this study is to retrospectively review the effect of VNS on perception of tinnitus in epilepsy patients. We explore the incidence of tinnitus and its perceived reduction in patients requiring implantation of VNS for medically refractory seizures.
The aim of this study is to estimate the entire population-based prevalence and incidence of Patulous Eustachian tube (PET) using the Korean National Health Insurance (NHI) claims database. The annual trends of prevalence and incidence of PET were also investigated.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a known prognostic indicator in oropharyngeal cancer. Not much is known about the prognostic role of HPV in Nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC). Here, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature to investigate if HPV status was a prognostic factor for NPC.
