© 2015.The case report "Management of the critical airway when an EXIT procedure is not an option" has important moral decision-making implications. If intubation was not quickly successful, then significant hypoxic brain injury may have resulted. A full discussion of the moral implications in cases such as this, prior to delivery, is important - both to the family and to the clinicians involved. Our contemporary era is characterised by a pronounced disparity of values and belief systems. An active process for moral decision-making based upon dialogic consensus, is seen as more appropriate than contemplation of ethical frameworks alone. This is increasingly important as the armamentarium of life-sustaining technology available to clinicians steadily increases.

Objectives: Recent publications have identified different rates of postoperative hemorrhage between "cold" tonsillectomy techniques and "hot" tonsillectomy techniques, generally identifying lower bleeding rates after cold techniques. Data from a prospective institutional review were analyzed to determine the relative risk factors for post-tonsillectomy hemorrhage among different techniques and by different age groups. Materials and Methods: At the co-located John Hunter Hospital and John Hunter Children's Hospital, data were collected prospectively over a period of five years to allow a nonrandom comparison between a nondiathermy dissection technique for tonsillectomy with a monopolar diathermy technique in the management of nonmalignant disease of the tonsils, in children and adults, by determining complications in the first 28 days after surgery. Results and Conclusions: One thousand one hundred thirty-three consecutive cases were analyzed. The primary post-tonsillectomy hemorrhage rate was 0.2% for blunt dissection plus diathermy hemostasis and 0.3% for monopolar diathermy dissection plus hemostasis. Monopolar diathermy had a lower rate of secondary postoperative hemorrhage, requiring readmission (4.2% compared with 5.4% for blunt dissection plus diathermy hemostasis) and a lower rate for readmission for observation alone (2.1% compared with 4.2%) but had a higher risk of returning to surgery (1.6% compared with 1.04%) and a higher risk of blood transfusion (0.49% compared with 0.2%). These differences, however, did not reach statistical significance (Yates ¿2), and neither did the relative risk between the two techniques. Two-way analysis of variance among secondary post-tonsillectomy hemorrhage complications by technique and by age groups shows a highly statistically significant difference by age group (analysis of variance, 3 df, F = 9.509, P < 0.001), much more so than technique. © 2007 American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation.

A 13 year old child with cystic fibrosis presented with an aural polyp which proved to be associated with cholesteatoma. Despite the expectation that the excessively viscid secretions characteristic of cystic fibrosis would make the middle ear cleft vulnerable to Eustachian tube obstruction and hence middle ear disease, literature review suggests that this is not the case. Factors thought to protect the temporal bone from middle ear disease may include the degree of pneumatisation, reduced goblet cell numbers, and altered roles of mucin genes. Cholesteatoma in a child with cystic fibrosis has not previously been reported. CT and MRI were used to confirm the diagnosis prior to mastoidectomy. Imaging correlates of cholesteatoma and other middle ear pathologies on CT and various MRI protocols are tabulated.

Objectives: To review the clinical presentation, surgical treatment and outcome of a single surgeon's experience with paediatric congenital cholesteatoma of the middle ear. Materials and methods: Surgical databases were accessed for the period 1994-2003 to identify those children who had a congenital cholesteatoma. Diagnosis was confirmed histopathologically. Details of presentation, surgical management, progress and outcomes were extracted and analysed. Results: Fifteen congenital cholesteatomas were identified. Median age at diagnosis was 3.8 years. Two were intra-tympanic and 13 were mesotympanic. Of these, 5 were localised to the antero-superior quadrant. Three initial surgical approaches were utilised - endomeatal for intra-tympanic cholesteatomas, endaural superior tympanomeatal flaps if the extent of spread was thought to be limited to the mesotympanum, and post-auricular approach to mastoidotomy if spread was thought to be beyond the mesotympanum. The 2 approached endomeatally were cured. Of 10 approached via endaural tympanotomy, 8 were cured via this approach, 1 recurred and came to modified radical mastoidectomy for cure, and 1 was converted to post-auricular mastoidotomy. Four were approached via post-auricular tympanotomy. One came to intact canal wall mastoidectomy to encompass spread and was cured, and 3 came to modified radical mastoidectomy for cure. Of the series, 4 eventually came to modified radical mastoidectomy for cure (3 as the initial procedure and 1 to salvage recurrence). All children swim unprotected but only 10 of 15 have normal heating in the operated ear. Conclusion: Assessment of the extent of spread determines the choice of initial operative approach. Localised, smaller, and intact lesions do better. Thus early diagnosis is likely to result in better outcomes.

Objectives: To follow persistent perforations following spontaneous extrusion of a Ventilation Tube (VT) in a Paediatric tertiary care setting in order to determine which factors are predictive for residual perforation after spontaneous extrusion, to examine the natural history of spontaneous healing of the perforation, and to determine which factors may be predictive for the subsequent healing of a perforation. Materials and methods: A prospective series of 80 perforations in 70 children after spontaneous extrusion of their VTs was followed. The 80 ears in which VT extrusion was complicated by residual perforation were compared with the 50 ears which extruded leaving an intact tympanic membrane. The 50 self-paired ears were compared. The 80 perforations were followed for spontaneous healing. The group which eventually healed was compared with the group which did not heal. The design of VT, number of prior VTs, age, and operative findings at the time of insertion (tympanic membrane condition, position, presence of tympanosclerosis, and the fluid aspirated) were recorded. Duration in-situ before extrusion on both the perforated side and the intact side were determined. Spontaneous closure rates, and the duration the residual perforation remained open before healing were determined. Analysis was via two-tailed t-tests and chi-squared analysis. P values are reported. Results: The only factors associated with a residual perforation after extrusion were thin or atrophic, and retracted or atelectatic tympanic membranes (p<.001). Neither age (p=.028), duration in-situ (p=.89), design (p=.899), nature of fluid (p=.281), nor tympanosclerosis (p=.21) were significantly associated with residual perforation. Of the 13 VTs which remained in-situ more than 24 months, 70% were complicated by residual perforation, with a bi-modal peak incidence at 3 and 36 montfis duration. Fifty-two perforations were followed until they healed spontaneously. Sixty-five percent healed - 60% within 6 months and 81% by 12 months. No factors were identified as predictive for eventual healing of the post VT extrusion perforation. Conclusions: Insertion of VTs should avoid areas of thinning or atrophy, retraction or atelectasis. It may be appropriate to offer surgical removal of a VT in-situ more than 24 months to reduce the risk of residual perforation. A majority of post-extrusion perforations eventually heal spontaneously. No predictive factors for eventual healing were identified.

Acute epiglottitis is now rarely diagnosed since Haemophilus influenzae (type b) was routinely included in the childhood immunization schedule. This report describes a case of vaccination failure in an immunised 11 month old child presenting with acute respiratory distress. The differential diagnosis and management of acute epiglottitis in a child is reviewed. This case highlights the ongoing presence of acute epiglottitis amongst the immunised population, and the importance of considering it in the differential diagnosis of any child presenting with acute respiratory distress.
