Objective To produce alternate cell sources for tissue regeneration, human nasal septal cartilage-derived progenitor cells (NSPs) were tested to identify whether these cells meet the criteria of cartilage progenitor cells. We also evaluated the effects of prolonged cultivation on the characteristics of NSPs. Study Design In vitro study. Setting Academic research laboratory. Methods NSPs were isolated from discarded human nasal septal cartilage. NSPs were cultured for 10 passages. The expression of septal progenitor cell surface markers was assessed by fluorescence-activated cell sorting...

Objective Unplanned readmission within 30 days is a contributor to health care costs in the United States. The use of predictive modeling during hospitalization to identify patients at risk for readmission offers a novel approach to quality improvement and cost reduction. Study Design Two-phase study including retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data followed by prospective longitudinal study. Setting Tertiary academic medical center. Subjects and Methods Prospectively collected data for patients undergoing surgical treatment for head and neck cancer from January 2013 to January 2015 were used to build predictive models for readmission within 30 days of discharge using logistic regression, classification and regression tree (CART) analysis, and random forests...

Inverted papillomas are tumors of the sinonasal tract with a propensity to recur. Raman spectroscopy can potentially identify inverted papillomas from other tissue based on biochemical signatures. A pilot study comparing Raman spectroscopy to histopathology for 3 types of sinonasal tissue was performed. Spectral data of biopsies from patients with normal sinonasal mucosa, chronic rhinosinusitis, and inverted papillomas are compared to histopathology using principal component analysis and linear discriminant analysis after data preprocessing...

Chang CWD. Match 2017: blindsided or fumbled? Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2018;158:594-597. (Original DOI: 10.1177/0194599817751890) On page 594 of this article from the April 2018 issue, the match rate nadir for ranked US seniors in 2013 should have been listed as 71% rather than 81%. The corrected sentence is as follows: "Traditionally, the specialty has enjoyed an era of desirability and competitiveness, with match rate nadir for ranked US seniors at 71% in 2013."

Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) is mainly caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) 6 and 11. While various adjuvant therapies have been reported, no effective therapy has been documented to universally "cure" this disease. In the era of precision medicine, it would be valuable to identify effective intervention based on drug sensitivity testing and/or molecular analysis. It is essential to be able to successfully carry out in vitro culture and expand tumor cells directly from patients to accomplish this goal...

Burnout in modern medicine is becoming more recognized and researched. The objective in this study is to evaluate burnout in a tertiary care academic institution and compare results among faculty, trainees, and advanced practice practitioners (APPs) in a cross-sectional survey using the Maslach Burnout Inventory. Fifty-two surveys were distributed; 44 participants completed the survey (85%): 25 staff physicians (57%), 14 resident physicians (32%), and 5 nurse practitioners (11%). Staff physicians had low emotional exhaustion, moderate depersonalization, and low result for reduced personal accomplishments; trainees reported low emotional exhaustion, high depersonalization, and moderate reduced personal accomplishment; and nurse practitioners reported moderate on all 3 dimensions...

Objective We sought to determine whether chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) symptom severity, endoscopic exam findings, and acute exacerbation of CRS (AECRS) frequency-all important and distinct clinical manifestations of CRS-would be predictive of each other and, therefore, inform when further assessment of each other metric should be pursued. Study Design Cross-sectional cohort study. Setting Tertiary academic rhinology clinic. Subjects and Methods In total, 241 patients with CRS were prospectively recruited and completed the 22-item Sinonasal Outcome Test (SNOT-22) to reflect CRS symptom severity...

Dorothy Wolff, PhD, was an inspirational anatomist, pathologist, auditory physiologist, and surgical innovator. Though little known, she worked throughout the mid-20th century in the midst of a revolution in otologic surgery, influencing well-known otologists such as Julius Lempert, MD, Phillip E. Meltzer, MD, and Richard Bellucci, MD. Wolff's seminal work included pathologic studies of the operated human ear, which provided the anatomic basis for effective modern techniques of surgical hearing rehabilitation...

Objective To determine the prevalence of chronic rhinosinusitis-related symptoms in the United States. Study Design Cross-sectional analysis of a national database. Setting Representative sampling of the US adult population. Subjects and Methods The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey data set, taste and smell supplement 2013-2014 was analyzed for sinonasal question responses regarding discolored nasal mucus, nasal blockage, sinus pain, and dysosmia. The individual prevalences as well as the prevalence of 2 or more of these symptoms (which would be compatible with a diagnosis of chronic rhinosinusitis) were determined for the US population...

Vinay K Rathi, Matthew R Naunheim, Mark A Varvares, Kenneth Holmes, Nancy Gagliano, Christopher J Hartnick
Following passage of the 2015 Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act, most clinicians caring for Medicare Part B patients were required to participate in a new value-based reimbursement system known as the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) beginning in 2017. The MIPS adjusts payment rates to providers based on a composite score of performance across 4 categories: quality, advancing care information, clinical practice improvement activities, and resource use. However, factors such as practice size, setting, informational capabilities, and patient population may pose challenges as otolaryngologists endeavor to adapt to this broad-reaching payment reform...
