Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) as a Cause of Facial Nerve Stimulation After Cochlear Implantation: A Case Report
CONCLUSIONS: FNS is a complication of cochlear implantation that can cause a great deal of distress and discomfort. Frequent electrostatic discharge (ESD) contributed to device malfunctioning and FNS in a patient with otherwise normal anatomy and should be avoided if possible.PMID:34651510 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211051229 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)

Dyskeratosis Congenita and Squamous Cell Cancer of the Head and Neck: A Case Report and Systematic Review
CONCLUSIONS: This is the largest review of DC and SCC in the head and neck. Based off our case report and review, these patients have aggressive disease that often requires multi-modality treatment. Consideration should be taken in regards to reports of side effects with radiation therapy.PMID:34651516 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211047470 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)

Understanding the Role of the Otolaryngology Hospitalist: Tracheostomies and Tracheostomy Care
CONCLUSION: In this study, an ENT hospitalist was decreased patient wait time to tracheostomy and increased bedside percutaneous tracheostomies, which has positive implications for resource utilization and healthcare cost. The average wait time to receive a tracheostomy was reduced when calculated across the entire department due to the availability of the ENT hospitalist to see and perform tracheostomies. The TCT generated many billable bedside procedures in addition to encouraged decannulation of patients. This study highlights the fact that the ENT hospitalist contributes to providing expedient tracheostomies and provid...

Disparities in Access to Pediatric Otolaryngology Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic
CONCLUSION: In our study, we identified ethnic, financial, and logistic concerns that may contribute to patients failing to keep their appointments with the otolaryngology clinic.

Videofluoroscopic Swallow Studies and Diagnostic Outcomes in Otherwise Healthy Infants With Dysphagia
CONCLUSIONS: Otherwise healthy infants may show signs of dysphagia and not develop later illness. Parents can thus be counseled on the implications of dysphagia in a previously healthy infant. Our findings provide comparative statistics for future research in pediatric dysphagia.PMID:34553623 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211047786 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)

Downward Trend in Resident Myringotomy and Tympanostomy Tube Experience
CONCLUSIONS: Otologic surgeries are an important part of resident education and historically have served as one of the initial surgical training experiences for residents. There has been a significant reduction in the number of myringotomy and tympanostomy procedures performed by otolaryngology residents in the past decade. While multiple factors influence resident experience, it is possible that introduction of PCV13 has impacted resident exposure to myringotomy and tympanostomy tube placement. Resident proficiency with this procedure has likely not been affected by introduction of PCV13. Data should be reassessed in 5 ye...

Orocutaneous Fistula After Oral Cavity Resection and Reconstruction: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
CONCLUSION: Orocutaneous fistula after oral cavity resection has significant incidence and clinical impact. Risk of OCF persists despite advances in reconstructive options; there is a trend toward higher risk after prior radiation.PMID:34553635 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211047463 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)
