Objectives The primary goal is the indexation of validated methods used to assess surgical competency in otorhinolaryngology-head and neck surgery (ORL-HNS) residents. Secondary goals include assessment of the reliability and validity of these tools, as well as the documentation of specific procedures in ORL-HNS involved. Data Sources MEDBASE, OVID, Medline, CINAHL, and EBM, as well as the printed references, available through the Université de Montréal library. Review Methods The PRISMA method was used to review digital and printed databases...

Importance: Chronic cough is a debilitating, often multifactorial problem. Vagal neuropathy has been proposed as a cause for a fraction of these cases. There are certain features that support the clinical diagnosis of vagal neuropathy. It is hypothesized that patients with neurogenic cough who have vocal fold motion asymmetry (VFMA) on laryngoscopy will be more likely to respond to gabapentin. Objective: To evaluate the association between the history, physical and videostroboscopic examinations, and clinical response to gabapentin...

Objective To identify occupational groups' use of specialty voice clinic evaluation. Study Design Retrospective cohort study. Setting Tertiary subspecialty clinic. Subjects and Methods We analyzed data collected on patients presenting to the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary Voice and Speech Laboratory over a 20-year period (1993-2013). The relative risk (RR) and 99% confidence interval (CI) of presentation were calculated for each occupational category in the greater Boston population using year-matched data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)...

OBJECTIVE: Laryngeal electromyography (LEMG) of the thyroarytenoid (TA) muscle alone may not be sufficient in all patients to characterize or prove a recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) lesion in cases of vocal fold immobility. LEMG of the posterior cricoarytenoid (PCA) muscle may provide additional information. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review. METHOD: Between 2008 and 2016, 339 patients in our laryngeal paralysis clinic were examined by transcutaneous needle TA-LEMG and, if tolerated, by PCA-LEMG...

OBJECTIVE: Laryngeal exposure is one of the most limiting factors in transoral laser microsurgery (TLM) for glottic cancer. We evaluated the correlation between the degree of laryngeal exposure, as assessed by an easy previously described scoring tool (Laryngoscore), and histopathologic surgical margin status after TLM. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective evaluation of 147 patients affected by Tis-T2 glottic cancer treated by TLM with curative intent between January 2012 and April 2016...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate pain associated with laryngeal electromyography (LEMG). STUDY DESIGN: A prospective case series. METHODS: Adult patients scheduled for LEMG in a tertiary care laryngology practice were recruited between July 20, 2016, and March 1, 2017. Demographic and clinical data were extracted from the charts. Study participants reported their anticipated pain level using a visual analog scale (VAS) prior to the procedure. VAS was administered again within 10 minutes after the procedure, along with the validated McGill Pain Questionnaire, to gauge patient's pain perception after undergoing LEMG...

A 60-year-old woman, otherwise in a good health condition, was first admitted to the hospital with a year-long tingling sensations of the right half of the face, which gradually turned into severe neuralgia corresponding to maxillary (V2) and mandibular (V3) branches of the right trigeminal nerve. MRI scans of the head revealed an unusual hyperplastic or inflammatory changes along the brain base, cavernous sinus extending toward the pterygopalatine fossa, and lateral pterygoid on the right side. Meningioma was suspected and neuralgia was treated conservatively...

Inducible laryngeal obstruction (ILO) describes an inappropriate, transient, reversible narrowing of the larynx in response to external triggers. ILO is an important cause of a variety of respiratory symptoms and can mimic asthma. Current understanding of ILO has been hampered by imprecise nomenclature and variable approaches to assessment and management. A task force of the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and European Laryngological Society (ELS) was thus set up to address this, and to identify research priorities...

OBJECTIVE: Anatomic abnormalities in the larynx can cause significant and bothersome symptoms. Identified here is an anatomical variant of the thyroid cartilage. STUDY DESIGN: This study is a retrospective case series of 11 subjects diagnosed with an anatomic variant of the thyroid cartilage.

Acronyms and abbreviations are frequently used in otorhinolaryngology and other medical specialties. CO2 laser-assisted transoral surgery of the pharynx, the larynx and the upper airway is a family of commonly performed surgical procedures termed transoral laser microsurgery (TLM). The abbreviation TLM can be confusing because of alternative modes of delivery. Classification and definition of the different types of procedures, performed transorally or transnasally, are proposed by the Working Committee for Nomenclature of the European Laryngological Society, emphasizing the type of laser used and the way this laser is transmitted...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine (a) which factors may affect singers' completing voice therapy, and (b) develop predictive profiles to capture those singers at risk for dropping out of voice therapy. STUDY DESIGN: A case-control study was conducted comparing singers who completed voice therapy to singers who dropped out of voice therapy. METHODS: Six factors, including age, gender, diagnosis, length of time between laryngology referral and commencement of therapy, type of singer, and referral source were investigated in relation to voice therapy completion using the medical records of 409 singers in the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center database...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Evaluate program director and recent trainee perceptions of the advantages and disadvantages of the laryngology Match. STUDY DESIGN: Web-based survey study. METHODS: A Web-based survey study was distributed to program directors and recent laryngology trainees to evaluate perceptions of the laryngology Match.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility of a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) weaning protocol in a cohort of patients following successful empiric treatment for suspected laryngopharyngeal reflux disease (LPRD). STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective chart review. METHODS: LPRD patients were weaned from PPIs using a standardized weaning protocol. Symptom recurrence rate following PPI wean and present PPI use were determined. All numeric data were analyzed...

Importance: Compromised cough effectiveness is correlated with dysphagia and aspiration. Glottic insufficiency likely yields decreased cough strength and effectiveness. Although vocal fold augmentation favorably affects voice and likely improves cough strength, few data exist to support this hypothesis. Objective: To assess whether vocal fold augmentation improves peak airflow measurements during maximal-effort cough following augmentation. Setting, Design, Participants: This case series study was conducted in a tertiary, academic laryngology clinic...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: To describe the distribution of recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) lesions across 21 laryngeal anatomic regions in previously untreated patients at initial presentation to provide insight regarding the natural history of RRP. STUDY DESIGN: Multi-institutional, retrospective case series. METHODS: Initial laryngoscopic examination videos of 83 previously untreated patients with adult-onset RRP were reviewed. Papilloma locations were recorded using a 21-region laryngeal schematic...

BACKGROUND: Vocal fold movement impairment (VFMI), a known complication following thoracic aortic surgery, has been associated with poorer surgical outcomes, including higher pulmonary complications and longer length of stay (LOS). Awake transcervical injection laryngoplasty in the inpatient setting serves to augment pulmonary toilet function for affected patients. This study investigates clinical outcomes of patients who underwent early versus late injection laryngoplasty following aortic surgery...
