OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: The aims of this study were to investigate short- and long-term rates of hearing preservation after cochlear implantation and identify factors that impact hearing preservation. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review. METHODS: Patients undergoing cochlear implantation with conventional-length electrodes and air-conduction thresholds ≤80 dB HL at 250 Hz preoperatively were included. Hearing preservation was defined as air-conduction thresholds ≤80 dB HL at 250 Hz...

OBJECTIVE: Explore relationship between insurance status and survival, determine outcomes that vary based on insurance status, and identify potential areas of intervention. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort analysis of patients who underwent resection of an upper aerodigestive tract malignancy at a single tertiary care hospital during a 5-year period.

Although suprastomal granulomas are a common complication of tracheotomy, they usually are an incidental finding and do not always require treatment. However, large granulomas may require removal, either to assist with speech production or to make the airway safer in the event of an accidental decannulation. Very large suprastomal granulomas extending up to or even through the vocal cords have been described. However, inverting suprastomal granulomas extending distally down the length of a tracheotomy tube have not been previously described...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Patients with unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) are commonly told to wait 12 months for spontaneous recovery. This study aims to 1) determine the time to vocal recovery in UVFP, 2) use that data to develop a neurophysiologically plausible model for recovery, and 3) use the model to generate meaningful predictions for patient counseling. STUDY DESIGN: Case series with de novo mathematical modeling. METHODS: Patients with UVFP who could pinpoint a discrete onset of vocal improvement were identified...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: To determine if otolaryngologists at a single children's hospital were adherent to the boxed warning for codeine use in post-tonsillectomy patients and the implications for practice patterns. STUDY DESIGN: Case series with chart review. METHODS: Charts from all patients undergoing adenotonsillectomy at a single children's hospital from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2015 were analyzed and stratified according to date (pre- or post-boxed warning) and practitioner type (academic otolaryngologists [AO] vs...

OBJECTIVE: To enhance knowledge and understanding of the laryngeal framework maturation in different age groups and genders. STUDY DESIGN: Cohort imaging study. SETTING: Tertiary academic referral center. METHODS: Computed tomography neck scans of 283 patients aged 8 to 20 years were studied. The interlaminae angle (ILA) of the thyroid cartilage at the level of the vocal folds, the anterior projection (angulation) of the thyroid cartilage (TC), and the degree of calcifications were evaluated and compared in sequential age groups of both genders...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of a microvascular head and neck (H&N) fellowship on senior residents' surgical experience. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review of Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-generated operative case log reports, retrospective chart review, and electronic survey.

OBJECTIVES: The Ni classification of vascular change from 2011 is well documented for evaluating pharyngeal and laryngeal lesions, primarily focusing on cancer. In the planning of surgery it may be more relevant to differentiate neoplasia from non-neoplasia. We aimed to evaluate the ability of the Ni classification to predict laryngeal or hypopharyngeal neoplasia and to investigate if a changed cutoff value would support the recent European Laryngological Society (ELS) proposal of perpendicular vascular changes as indicative of neoplasia...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: The aim of this study was to assess and compare the diagnostic accuracy of (18) fluorodesoxyglucose positron emission/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to detect T1-T2 head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). STUDY DESIGN: Prospective case series. METHODS: Thirty-five consecutive patients with histologically proven T1-T2 HNSCC were prospectively included. All patients underwent pretherapeutic FDG-PET/CT and MRI...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Previous studies have shown declines in productivity due to chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) are correlated with disease-specific quality-of-life (QOL) measures. However, it is unclear which symptom domains contribute primarily to productivity loss. This investigation sought to assess the association between CRS-specific QOL subdomain impairment and productivity loss. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, multi-institutional, observational cohort study. METHODS: There were 198 patients with refractory CRS enrolled between August 2012 and June 2015...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Our objectives were to investigate pediatric cochlear implantation (PCI) across representative states within the United States and analyze any geographical differences in age, median household income, race, insurance, and total medical charges. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional. METHODS: Data from children (aged 0.5-18 years) who received cochlear implantation surgery were collected from the 2011 State Ambulatory Surgery and Services Databases from California (CA), Florida (FL), Maryland (MD), New York (NY), and Kentucky (KY) as a part of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Adipose tissue engineering aims to provide functional tissue surrogates for the restoration of soft tissue defects and contour deformities in the face. Many studies involve the delivery of cells; however, the impact and the exact role of the implanted cells is not yet fully elucidated. STUDY DESIGN: Animal research. METHODS: In this study, we used a mouse model for the development of volume-stable adipose tissue using polyurethane scaffolds combined with a long-term stable fibrin gel and adipose-derived stromal cells to investigate the influence of cell delivery on tissue development...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of laryngeal mask airway (LMA) ventilation in obese patients with airway stenosis. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective chart review was conducted in an academic practice in a tertiary care center. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed our experience using LMA ventilation in obese patients with airway stenosis. Lowest intraoperative O2 saturation and maximum-end tidal carbon dioxide (CO2 ) levels were recorded. Complications including intubation, unplanned admission, re-admission, postoperative pain, dysphonia, oral trauma, pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum, and tracheostomy were recorded...
