     Introduction of Special Edition


    Dear Authors,

    Auditory processing disorder, commonly called as Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) that affects 5% of school aged children.
    Although the Children with CAPD have normal outer, middle and inner ear functioning, they cannot able to process the auditory information in the same way as other children process it, which causes difficulties in understanding speech and interpreting sound. Studies in this area reported that this difficulty happens due to dysfunction in central auditory nervous system.
    The professional dealing with these children from screening, diagnosis and management are Audiologists, Speech Language Pathologist and Otolaryngologist. Recently, there has been huge increase in public and professionals awareness of Auditory Processing.
    I am pleased to invites the authors to submit original research, reviews, commentary, case report, short communication to special edition of our journal to update knowledge among professionals and researchers.

    Article processing charge will be free for special edition. Therefore, the accepted article will be published online immediately.

     Introduction of Special Edition


    The art of facial plastic surgery was born with Egyptian culture several years ago. This art was developed by European surgeons before and American, to arrive to our time.

    The surgical techniques become every times less invasive, the endoscopy changed not only the way to do the surgery but helps surgeon to discover all details of the anatomy.

    The microsurgery is necessary to refine the details, less invasive and precise has the ability to reduce the post-surgery time. New methodologies have been developed to avoid the surgery as injectable product, needle suture that doesn’t need surgery, Botox to treat wrinkles and asymmetry in place of frontal lifting technique.

    This special issue will be focused on new technique or in review of the old ones.

    I consider very important the anatomy in each discussed technique for this reason I will introduce it in this special issue.

     Introduction of Special Edition


    The hearing loss is a problem able to involve more than 75% of people after 75 years old, so is one of the most important problems for HealthCare system.

    Hearing loss as degenerative aging disease is one part of the hearing disorders, there are other problems linked to genetic defect, trauma, metabolic disease and autoimmune disorders able to determinate hearing loss.

    We can treat this “social” disease or not, but recent studies show how the hearing loss is able to influence dementia in older. Sometimes the patient doesn’t accept the hearing treatment and accept his condition has an aging disease.

    Now we can use hearing aids, cochlear implants, Implantable prosthesis and bone anchorage system. The biotech industry is developing everyday more sophisticated technologies to restore the normal hearing function and to micronize the prosthesis.

    Is available another future? Genetic therapy? Hair Cells restoration? New drugs to avoid the oxidative stress and preserve the hearing function? Or new biotechnology able to offer the same performance of normal hearing? Total implantable device?

    I invite the authors to submit not only original researches but also reviews and commentary.

    In this special issue we want to present the present and the future in hearing loss treatment.

     Introduction of Special Edition


    Dear Reader,

    Advances and future perspectives in basic and clinical research in the field of tinnitus, hearing loss and hyperacusis are among the most interesting and fascinating aspects of current otorhinolaryngological sciences. These are widely spread conditions for which research has played, plays and will play a vital role for prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

    Many advances have been made to date, leading to better understanding of many pathophysiological mechanisms that underlie these conditions aiming to new diagnostic and therapeutic frontiers to further increase our knowledge in the field.

    This special edition of the Otolaryngology Open Journal has been proposed to put focus on the recent advances in the field of tinnitus, hearing loss and hyperacusis, welcoming original works on basic and clinical research, as well as case reports, reviews, short communications and commentaries.

     Introduction of Special Edition


    Dear Reader,

    Rare non-squamous cell head and neck cancers constitute a wide range of tumors such lymphomas, plasmacytomas, sarcomas, and neuroendocrine tumors. Although during the last two decades, a substantial progress has been witnessed in the classification and understanding of the clinical behavior of rare non squamous cell head and neck cancers, but many unresolved issues regarding their epidemiology, treatment, and prognosis still exists. In this edition, we will elaborate on those rare cancers arising in the head and neck region, trying to discover hidden clinical concerns with respect to their epidemiology and optimal treatment.
