Association Between Voice Handicap Index and Praat Voice Analysis in Patients  with Benign Vocal Cord Lesion Before and After Microscopic Laryngeal Surgery

This study aimed to analyse correlation between VHI score and praat voice analysis in benign vocal cord lesion before and after microscopic laryngeal surgery. This study was carried out from November 2009 to December 2010 at Outpatient Unit of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery and Integrated Oncology Center of Dr. Soetomo General Hospital, Surabaya, Indonesia. Pearson ’s correlation test found a negative correlation between total VHI score with base frequency and harmonic-to-noise ratio (HNR) (r = − 0.186,p = 0.689; r = − 0.650,p = 0.114). On the other hand, there was a positive correlation between total VHI score with jitter and shimmer (r = 0.812,p = 0.027; r = 0.638,p = 0.123). It could be inferred that base frequency, shimmer and HNR after surgery had no significant correlation (p >  0.05), while VHI total score significantly correlated with jitter after surgery (p

Authors: Gutta A, Gromski MA Abstract Post-polypectomy bleeding (PPB) is one of the most common complications of endoscopic polypectomy. There are multiple risk factors related to patient and polyp characteristics that should be considered. In most cases, immediate PPB can be effectively managed endoscopically when recognized and managed promptly. Delayed PPB can manifest in a myriad of ways. In severe delayed PPB, resuscitation for hemodynamic stabilization should be prioritized, followed by endoscopic evaluation and therapy once the patient is stabilized. Future areas of research in PPB include the risks of direc...

Chronic rhinosinusitis is a long-lasting medical condition, usually caused by infection or exposure to irritants, such as allergies, that affects one in seven American adults. Symptoms include nasal obstruction, nasal congestion, nasal drainage, loss of smell and taste, and facial pain and pressure. Some people with chronic rhinosinusitis also develop additional symptoms, such as asthma and nasal polyps, that are exacerbated by underlying allergies. A nasal polyp is a noncancerous tumor that grows from the lining of the nose or sinuses and affects the drainage system of the sinuses. While chronic rhinosinusitis is not a li...

Publication date: January 2020Source: Biomedical Signal Processing and Control, Volume 55Author(s): Farah Deeba, Francis M. Bui, Khan A. WahidAbstractThis paper presents a computer-aided polyp detection algorithm applicable to both colonoscopy and wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE). The proposed system has three integral parts: image enhancement, saliency map formation and Histogram of gradients (HOG) feature extraction for final classification. We propose a novel and efficient image enhancement algorithm, which enhances the saliency of clinically important features in endoscopic images. A saliency detection method is applie...

Hyperplastic polyps, once thought to have a benign course, are now part of a larger heterogeneous group known as serrated polyps, which include hyperplastic polyps (HPs), sessile serrated polyps (SSPs), and traditional serrated adenomas (TSAs). The latter group, once known as serrated adenomas, are relatively rare, accounting for less than 5% of all serrated polyps. Thus, it is not surprising that less is known about these lesions than about conventional adenomas or even SSPs. Because these lesions have dysplasia and can progress to colorectal cancer (CRC), more data regarding prevalence and risk factors TSAs are vital.

We read with great interest the article by Chandrasekar et  al,1 which used a meta-analysis of 8 studies investigating cold polypectomy techniques in polyps>10  mm. We applaud the authors’ efforts in the meta-analyses, bringing further attention to the evaluation of polypectomy techniques, but we believe that several issues deserve additional consideration.

I read with interest the article by Lin et  al.1 The authors conducted a risk assessment to evaluate the relationship between anticoagulation or antiplatelet medications and postpolypectomy bleeding according to 2 epidemiologic study designs. In a retrospective cohort study, the authors observed 59 cases. Thereafter, the authors conducted a case-control study with 174 matched control individuals. In multivariate logistic regression analysis, the adjusted odds ratios (95% confidence interval [CI]) of heparin bridge and polyp size ≥2 cm in patients with warfarin medication were 10.27 (2.51-42.1) and 8.8 (1.28-60.7), respectively.
