Airway Management of the Deformed Trachea Using T-Tube Stents in Patients with Mucopolysaccharidosis Type IVA
CONCLUSIONS: T-tube stents placed below the vocal cord may restore airway patency and preserve laryngeal function, including respiration, phonation, and swallowing, in patients with MPS type IVA.PMID:34282634 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211032778 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)

Recovery of Vocal Cord Motion Among Pediatric Patients
CONCLUSIONS: Patients should be counseled about earlier interventions. Waiting the conventional 12 months for only a 3% chance of spontaneous recovery without intervention or laryngeal EMG may not be the preferred option for some patients and their families.PMID:34282639 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211033366 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)

Determining Medical Urgency of Voice Disorders Using Auditory-Perceptual Voice Assessments Performed by Speech-Language Pathologists
This study examined whether speech-language pathologist auditory-perceptual voice assessments can predict the medical urgency of voice disorders.METHODS: Twenty speech-language pathologists (SLPs) evaluated 25 voice samples recorded during initial voice evaluations. Voice samples represented a range of dysphonia severity (mild-severe) balanced across patient diagnoses. Diagnoses included: benign lesions, laryngeal cancer, non-organic voice disorders, laryngeal edema (associated with LPR), and laryngeal paralysis or paresis. Laryngeal cancer and severe unilateral laryngeal paralysis were considered urgent disorders. While b...

Tumor-Related and Patient-Related Variables Affecting Length of Hospital Stay Following Vestibular Schwannoma Microsurgery
CONCLUSION: Over 90% of VS microsurgery patients were routinely discharged with a median hospital LOS of 3.2 days, both of which are consistent with published data. There is an inverse relationship between age and LOS with patients older than 70 years having significantly longer LOS. Brainstem compression, COPD, PVD, and the RS approach negatively affect LOS.LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: 4.PMID:34210194 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211029103 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)

Laceration of Aberrant Internal Carotid Artery Following Myringotomy: A Case Report and Review of Literature
CONCLUSIONS: An aberrant ICA can cause life-threatening complications without prior diagnosis in a routine myringotomy. Suspicious exam findings should prompt temporal bone CT to rule out aberrant ICA or other vascular pathology of the middle ear prior to surgery. In the case of iatrogenic injury of an aberrant ICA, there is no consensus in existing literature on optimal management. We reviewed 37 studies to compare therapeutic options and subsequent outcomes. Though complications are rare regardless of management, cases in which solely packing was utilized demonstrated an increased incidence of hemiparesis, aphasia, heari...

The Relationship Between Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Pediatric Obesity: A Nationwide Analysis
CONCLUSIONS: Obesity is independently associated with OSA in children after controlling for adenotonsillar hypertrophy. Non-Hispanic black race and Hispanic ethnicity are independent risk factors for OSA and are associated with obesity in the OSA inpatient population, which suggests that obesity may play a role in the increased risk of OSA within these groups.PMID:34192945 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211028489 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)

Cost-Effectiveness of Open vs. Endoscopic Repair of Zenker's Diverticulum
CONCLUSION: Open surgery and endoscopic surgery are 2 treatment strategies for Zenker's diverticulum that each have their own advantages and disadvantages that can complicate the decision-making process. With no previous cost-effectiveness analysis of open versus endoscopic surgery for Zenker's diverticulum, our results support the endoscopic approach at most common WTP thresholds. Particularly with the current focus on rising healthcare costs, our results can serve as an important adjunct to medical decision-making for patients undergoing treatment for Zenker's diverticulum.PMID:34192947 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211028507 (S...

Dysphagia Severity and Outcomes Following Iatrogenic High Vagal Nerve Injury
CONCLUSION: Iatrogenic high vagal injury causes significant lasting dysphagia which improves with intervention but does not completely resolve. Interventions such as vocal fold injection, medialization laryngoplasty, cricopharyngeal myotomy, or swallowing therapy may be required to reestablish safe swallowing in these patients.PMID:34157900 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211026991 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)

The Efficiency of ( < em > videolaryngo < /em > )stroboscopy in Detecting T1a Glottic Carcinoma and Its Preliminary Stages
CONCLUSION: LVS is a valid tool to identify early glottic carcinoma and its high risk premalignancy carcinoma in situ (CIS). Even when there is no definitive differentiation between SIN I and II, the invasive character of a CIS and an invasive glottic carcinoma can be identified. Especially strobosopic signs of abnormal amplitude and/or mucosal waves, particularly phoniatric halt, are an early indication for a CIS or an invasive carcinoma.PMID:34148426 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211026732 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)

Videofluoroscopic Swallow Study Findings and Correlations in Infancy of Children with Cerebral Palsy
CONCLUSION: While there was not a consistent correlation of swallowing dynamics in infancy with later gross motor categorizations of CP, the results of this retrospective review highlight the essential role of early clinical and videofluoroscopic swallowing evaluations to identify oral and pharyngeal swallowing dysfunction in this patient population.PMID:34148427 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211026741 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)

Medicolegal Considerations Regarding Steroid Use in Otolaryngology: A Review of the Literature
CONCLUSION: Despite the scarcity of corticosteroid-related medicolegal literature pertaining to otolaryngologists, corticosteroids are one of the most widely prescribed medications in the field of otolaryngology and have been shown to have a high rate of medical malpractice claims in medicine. Counseling and consenting the patient, as well as developing a strong physician-patient relationship, are integral processes in addressing any adverse effects occurring during therapy, and may also help to decrease the incidence and success of litigation against otolaryngologists.PMID:34151596 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211026737 (Source:...

Dysphagia in Pediatric Patients with Tracheostomy
CONCLUSION: A tracheotomy can functionally and anatomically affect swallowing in pediatric patients. The majority of our studied cohort was able to resume some form of an oral diet postoperatively based on MBS. This study highlights the need for objective measurements of swallowing in the postoperative tracheotomy patient to allow for safe and timely commencement of an oral diet.LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level 3.PMID:34142561 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211025179 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)
