Author(s):

Dr. Amit Goel and Dr. Mukesh Kumar Ishwarlal Ramani

Abstract:

Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) have gained widespread popularity as an alternative to traditional tobacco smoking. Despite their perceived safety compared to conventional cigarettes, emerging evidence suggests potential adverse effects, particularly within the realm of otolaryngology. This review paper aims to comprehensively summarize the current literature on the adverse effects of e-cigarettes on the ear, nose, and throat (ENT) region. Through a systematic review of relevant studies, we highlight the various detrimental impacts of e-cigarette use on the structures and functions of the ENT system. Additionally, we discuss the underlying mechanisms implicated in these adverse effects and offer insights into the clinical implications for otolaryngologists. This review underscores the importance of continued research and heightened awareness among healthcare professionals and the general public regarding the potential otolaryngological consequences of e-cigarette use.
