Branchial cleft cysts, fistulae and appendages.
Transcanal approach for implantation of a cochlear nerve electrode array.
To evaluate a transcanal approach for placement of a stimulating electrode array in the cochlear nerve. Prospective cadaveric temporal bone study. Ten human cadaveric temporal bones were dissected. Both a facial recess approach with mastoidectomy and a transcanal approach using the novel technique w...
Head and neck cancer in transplant recipients.
Although the development of head and neck cancer is a rare side effect of immunosuppression, it still warrants attention. These patients have been found to be less likely to survive >1 year when compared to their nontransplant counterparts. Patients who develop head and neck malignancies following o...
Comparison of various treatment modalities for acute tinnitus.
We evaluated the therapeutic effects of various treatment modalities on acute subjective idiopathic tinnitus (SIT) and investigated prognostic factors affecting the treatment outcome. Prospective, controlled, double-blind trial. A total 107 patients who underwent trea...
In response to Sinonasal surgery in Wegener's granulomatosis: Is it time to go on?
Removal of obstructing T-tube and stabilization of the airway.
We describe a simple set of steps for rapid relief of airway obstruction and stabilization of the airway in the event of T-tube obstruction. This method requires removal of the T-tube with a Kelly clamp and stabilization of the airway with a tracheostomy tube. Although it is simple, we hope that thi...
In reference to An electron microscopic study-Correlation of gastroesophageal reflux disease and laryngopharyngeal reflux.
Topical antibiotic treatment reduces tympanostomy tube biofilm formation.
Treatment of TTs with ototopical antibiotic preparations reduces P. aeruginosa growth and biofilm formation in vitro. This may, in part, explain the reduction of PTTO rates observed with single doses of OAPs. Copyright © 2011 The American Laryngological, Rhinological, and Otological...
Balloon dilatation of tracheostomal stenosis with cuffed tracheostomy tube. A novel approach to tracheostomal dilatation.
We describe an alternative technique using a readily available cuffed tracheostomy tube. Laryngoscope, 2011. Copyright © 2010 The American Laryngological, Rhinological, and Otological Society, Inc....
Further observations on the role of Staphylococcus aureus exotoxins and IgE in the pathogenesis of nasal polyposis.
Recent studies have suggested that Staphylococcus aureus secrete exotoxins that may act as superantigens and upregulate the variable beta region of lymphocytes in chronic hyperplasticsinusitis with nasal polyposis (CHSwNP). The aim of this study was to add further information for cor...
