Abstract:
A 45-year-old female who presented with a salivary gland tumor on the oral and base of the tongue underwent surgery via intraoral approach. It led to a recurrence of the primary site and metastasis to bilateral cervical lymph nodes within 5 years of surgery. We performed resection of the recurred tumor via transoral approach and endoscope assisted neck dissection via retroauricular approach. The patient has been alive for 5 years without recurrence or any complications. We report on this case where a minimally invasive approach was used to obtain excellent cosmetic results and outstanding surgical outcomes.

Abstract:
Herniation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) into the external auditory canal is rare as TMJ and external auditory canal are separated by an anterior bony wall of external auditory canal. The bony defect of the anterior external auditory canal can be caused by trauma, otologic procedure, neoplasm, inflammation and a rare congenital bony defect. Conservative treatment is available if the severity of the symptom is mild or asymptomatic. However, surgical procedure is considered if the patient experiences severe distress. There have been no reported cases of surgical-related complications and recurrence during postoperative follow-up period. Herein we report the very first case of foreign body prolapse involving herniation from TMJ extending into the external auditory canal.

Abstract:
Background and Objectives Steroid treatment is used as a main treatment modality for sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL). Intratympanic injection of steroid (ITS) has been used and its therapeutic efficacy reported as being comparable to the systemic steroid administration (SS). This study compares the hearing outcomes of using ITS and SS simultaneously and SS alone.Subjects and Method Retrospective chart review was performed for 146 patients with SSNHL. The patients were divided into 2 groups according to the method of treatment (SS and ITS simultaneously vs. SS alone). The inclusion criteria were starting treatment within 7 days after onset, and follow up pure tone audiometry at least 4 weeks after treatment. Hearing gain for pure tone threshold of each frequency and average of 4 frequencies (500 Hz, 1000 Hz, 2000 Hz, and 4000 Hz) were compared between both groups.Results The improvement in PTA at 1-month follow-up was 27.3±20.0 dB HL in the simultaneous group and 19.1±19.5 dB HL in the SS alone group; this was not statistically significant. Complete or partial recovery at 1-month follow-up was observed in 65.3% of the simultaneous group and 69.6% of the SS alone group; this was also not significant.Conclusion There was no significant difference in hearing outcomes between the simultaneous and SS alone group. The simultaneous therapy does not appear to be superior to the SS alone therapy. Further studies using more population and longer follow-up periods are necessary.
