  1. Outcome of adenoidectomy versus adenoidectomy with maxillary sinus wash for chronic rhinosinusitis in children.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):871 (2008) PMID 18520186

    To compare postoperative outcomes of adenoidectomy versus adenoidectomy with maxillary sinus wash as surgical treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) in children. A retrospective review of prospectively collected data. Children who failed to respond to medical therapy for CRS and had an adenoi...
  2. Minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):786 (2008) PMID 18216740

    Minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy (MIVAT) has been developed and successfully used in Italy to perform thyroidectomy and central node dissection through an incision of 2 to 3 cm. Determine the safety, utility, and complication rates of MIVAT in a university setting within the Unite...
  3. Histologic changes in eustachian tube mucosa of rats after exposure to gastric reflux.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):849 (2008) PMID 18300701

    Reflux is thought to be a risk factor for middle ear disease, but the mechanism underlying this relationship is unclear. In this study, we evaluated the effects of reflux on the eustachian tube (ET) mucosa. Twenty-two healthy 150 to 220 g Wistar rats with normal middle ears were used. The animal...
  4. Computer-assisted quantitative evaluation of obstructive sleep apnea using digitalized endoscopic imaging with Muller maneuver.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):909 (2008) PMID 18300707

    To validate the technique of the Muller maneuver (MM) using videoendoscopy and to quantify the correlation between its clinical results and variables of polysomnography. Prospective, controlled study. Videoendoscopy with MM was performed in 70 patients who were categorized into two groups, with ...
  5. 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...
  6. Does subepithelial hemorrhage cause persistence of laryngeal granuloma?

    Laryngoscope 118(5):932 (2008) PMID 18197133

    To determine the incidence of black spots after resolution of laryngeal granuloma (LG), to compare the disease duration from the beginning of treatment to resolution between patients with and without black spots, and to assess the histologic findings of LG in resected or biopsied specimens. Retr...
  7. Ascorbic acid reduces noise-induced nitric oxide production in the guinea pig ear.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):837 (2008) PMID 18197132

    Noise-induced hearing loss can be caused, among other causes, by increased nitric oxide (NO) production in the inner ear leading to nitroactive stress and cell destruction. Some studies in the literature suggest that the degree of hearing loss (HL) could be reduced in an animal model through asc...
  8. In reference to classification and management of tracheoesophageal and tracheopharyngeal fistulas after laryngectomy.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):944; author reply 944 (2008) PMID 18449018

  9. Change of acoustic parameters before and after treatment in laryngopharyngeal reflux patients.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):938 (2008) PMID 18520188

    To evaluate the usefulness of acoustic parameters as an indicator of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) treatment efficacy. A prospective case series analysis. From January to September 2005, we prospectively analyzed 40 patients who were diagnosed with laryngopharyngeal reflux by 24-hour ambulatory...
  10. Removal of Wharton's duct during submandibular gland excision.

    Laryngoscope 118(5):810 (2008) PMID 18520183
