Evaluation of gap filling skills and reading mistakes of cochlear implanted and normally hearing students
This study aimed to (1) evaluate the gap filling skills and reading mistakes of students with cochlear implants, and to (2) compare their results with those of their normal-hearing peers. The effects of implantation age and total time of cochlear implant use were analyzed in relation to the subjects' reading skills development.

Protocol incorporating airway CT decreases negative bronchoscopy rates for suspected foreign bodies in pediatric patients
Background: Foreign body aspiration (FBA) is the 4th leading cause of death in children between the ages 1-5. Although direct laryngoscopy and bronchoscopy (DL&B) is the reference standard for diagnosis of pediatric airway foreign bodies, there is a high negative bronchoscopy rate, exposing patients to unnecessary operative and anesthetic risks and costs.Methods: A clinical care protocol entailing the selective use of low-dose non-contrast airway computed tomography (CT) for children with an intermediate risk for FBA on the basis of clinical exam and chest radiography was implemented to decrease the negative DL&B r...

We describe a 1 month old infant with PHACE syndrome who underwent successful management of subglottic hemangioma by open resection and laryngotracheal reconstruction using a thyroid ala graft. Propranolol is typically the treatment of choice for subglottic hemangiomas however, recent reports have suggested adverse complications with the use of propranolol in children with PHACE syndrome. The child had cerebral and cervical vascular anomalies associated with her PHACE syndrome making her at an increased risk of stroke with the use of propranolol.

Effect of early correction of nasal septal deformity in unilateral cleft lip and palate on inferior turbinate hypertrophy and nasal patency
A relatively neglected aspect of cleft lip nasal deformity is the effect of septal deviation and inferior turbinate hypertrophy (ITH) on the functional airway. In particular, ITH in the noncleft side can be especially problematic, because it reduces the healthy nasal area, creating bilateral nasal obstruction that might affect the growth of the maxillofacial skeleton. Although these anatomic and functional changes are documented, few recommendations have been developed regarding the proper approach to ITH.
