Neural Switch Asymmetry in Feature-Based Auditory Attention Tasks
Abstract Active listening involves dynamically switching attention between competing talkers and is essential to following conversations in everyday environments. Previous investigations in human listeners have examined the neural mechanisms that support switching auditory attention within the acoustic featural cues of pitch and auditory space. Here, we explored the cortical circuitry underlying endogenous switching of auditory attention between pitch and spatial cues necessary…

A Rare Presentation of Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Tumor in the Nasolabial Fold
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a benign lesion that occurs most frequently in the soft tissues and viscera. In the head and neck region, the tumor has been reported to occur in the orbit, tongue, nasopharynx, larynx, and paranasal sinuses and the central nervous system. Despite being a benign lesion, it exhibits infiltrative and destructive behaviours, making histopathological examination necessary to confirm the diagnosis. We report the case of a 38-year-old female presented with a…

Comparing Gelfoam vs. fat as a sealing material in stapedotomy; A prospective double blind randomized clinical trial
Abstract Objectives One research aspect of stapes surgery is various materials that are used to seal the oval window. Several materials are used to seal the oval window, for example; adipose tissue, perichondrium, vein graft, gelatin sponge (Gelfoam), blood clot, and soft connective tissue. Up to now, there has been no randomized clinical trial that has evaluated the effects of different types of sealing material on hearing outcomes after stapedotomy. Hence, the present study aimed to find out…

Our experience of shorter stay and lower cost for local versus general anaesthetic placement of tracheoesphageal fistulae in 27 patients
Abstract Secondary trache‐oesophageal puncture and fistula formation is often undertaken after laryngectomy to restore voice. The procedure was historically carried out under general anaesthesia (GA). This has been largely supplanted by local anaesthetic (LA) techniques as GA puts patients at a greater risk and the procedure is a more technically difficult undertaking. LA techniques have, however, never been validated against GA techniques in terms of length of stay, cost and complication rates….

Recurrent Bell’s palsy
Abstract Objective Although recurrent facial palsy was first reported in 1871, the etiology, definitions, classifications, pathogenesis, treatment options, and prognosis have not been clearly determined. There have been no systematic reviews and meta‐analyses of recurrent Bell’s palsy. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical manifestations of recurrent Bell’s palsy through a systematic review and meta‐analysis. Design The SCOPUS, PubMed, Cochrane Library, and EBSCO databases…
