    The primary objective of this study was to determine the relationship between chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) and laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR). We also investigated the diagnostic value of pepsin in nasal lavage by means of fluorometric assay as compared with 24-hour dual-probe pH monitoring. Thi...
  8. Gene expression profiling of nasal polyps associated with chronic sinusitis and aspirin-sensitive asthma.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):881 (2008) PMID 18391768

    To identify genes whose expression is most characteristic of chronic rhinosinusitis and aspirin-sensitive asthma through genome-wide transcriptional profiling of nasal polyp tissue. Prospective, controlled study conducted at a tertiary care institution. Thirty genome-wide expression microarrays ...
  9. Chronologic changes of nitric oxide concentration in the cochlear lateral wall and its role in noise-induced permanent threshold shift.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):832 (2008) PMID 18300700

    The objective of this study was to investigate the chronologic changes of nitric oxide (NO) concentration in the cochlear lateral wall and to explore its possible role in permanent threshold shift (PTS) after intense noise exposure. Seventeen guinea pigs were subjected to a single continuous exp...
  10. Safety and efficacy of botulinum toxin therapy in otorhinolaryngology: experience from 1,000 treatments.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):790 (2008) PMID 18300708

    The objective of this study was to analyze the safety and efficacy of botulinum toxin (BTX) therapy in a series of 1,000 treatments on 261 consecutive patients at the University Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Cologne, Germany. A prospective computer database was analyze...
  11. The quartile benefit plot: a middle ear surgery benefit assessment scheme.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):843 (2008) PMID 18197128

    The purpose of this study is to present a new method for the assessment of hearing improvement following stapes surgery, taking into account additional, previously omitted evaluation criteria. Retrospective. A quartile plot, based on the currently used Glasgow benefit plot, is structured to incl...
  12. An antimicrobial peptide modulates epithelial responses to bacterial products.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):816 (2008) PMID 18300705

    Changes in the respiratory epithelium and chronic and recurrent infections are thought to play a central role in the pathogenesis of otitis media and sinusitis. The airway epithelium is the primary defense system of the respiratory tract. Bacterial cell membrane components like lipopolysaccharid...
  13. Effects of endolymphatic sac drainage with steroids for intractable Meniere's disease: a long-term follow-up and randomized controlled study.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):854 (2008) PMID 18520184

    Meniere's disease is a common inner ear disease with an incidence of 15 to 50 per 100,000 population. Since Meniere's disease is thought to be triggered by an immune insult to the inner ear, we examined intraendolymphatic sac application of steroids as a new therapeutic strategy for intractable ...
