An Alternative Route for Entrapped Inferior Orbital Nerve in Orbital Floor Fracture

Cranial Maxillofac Trauma Reconstruction
DOI: 10.1055/s-0036-1592090

Orbital floor fractures pose a grave threat for injury to the infraorbital nerve, resulting in the patient suffering from a disturbing paraesthesia. It is challenging for the operating surgeon to release and secure the entrapped nerve with reconstruction of the orbital floor. We present an interesting case of orbital floor fracture with entrapped infraorbital nerve, wherein we have decompressed the nerve and provided it, a new course.

Breathomics in asthma and COPD

Publication date: Available online 31 August 2016

Author(s): Lieuwe D. Bos, Peter J. Sterk, Stephen J. Fowler
Exhaled breath contains thousands of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that reflect the metabolic process occurring in the host both locally in the airways and systemically. They also arise from the environment and the airway microbiome. Comprehensive analysis of breath VOCs (breathomics) provides opportunities for non-invasive biomarker discovery and novel mechanistic insights. Applications in obstructive lung diseases, such as asthma and COPD, include not only diagnostics (especially in children and other challenging diagnostic areas) but also the identification of clinical treatable traits such as airway eosinophilia and risk of infection/exacerbation that are not specific to diagnostic labels. Whilst many aspects of breath sampling and analysis are challenging, proof of concept studies with mass-spectrometry and electronic noses technologies have provided independent studies with moderate to good diagnostic- and phenotypic accuracies. The present review evaluates the data obtained by breathomics in: a) predicting the inception of asthma or COPD, b) inflammatory phenotyping, c) predicting exacerbations and d) treatment stratification. The current findings merit the current efforts step of large multi-centre studies, using standardized sampling, shared anaytical methods and databases, including external validation cohorts. This will position this non-invasive technology in the clinical assessment and monitoring of chronic airways diseases.

Nasal Mucosal Cyst a Clinical and Surgical Dilemma

Abstract

A mucous cyst is a lesion which can show a wide range of symptoms but is benign and most of them can even appear several months or even years after nasal surgeries. Size of the displaced epithelial fragment is a crucial factor for the development of the mucous cyst. Complete resection of the mucous cyst is the ideal treatment. Surfing through the literature we came across 18 cases of mucous cyst formation following nasal surgery. Here we describe a mucous cyst which had resulted from a rhinoplasty procedure the patient had undergone earlier in her life.
