Prominent publications by David Oliver Francis

KOL-Index: 11626 . BACKGROUND & AIMS: Current diagnostic tests for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are suboptimal and do not accurately and reliably measure chronicity of reflux. A minimally invasive device has been developed to assess esophageal mucosal impedance (MI) as a marker of chronic reflux. We performed a prospective longitudinal study to investigate MI patterns in patients with GERD and ...

KOL-Index: 11032 . BACKGROUND: Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) has a high prevalence and significant cost and quality of life implications. Many types of practitioners care for patients with rhinosinusitis; however, patients with chronic or complicated conditions are often referred for tertiary rhinology services. It is unclear how social determinants of health affect access and utilization of these services. A ...

KOL-Index: 10034 . 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 ...

KOL-Index: 9662 . OBJECTIVES: 1) Investigate the impact of electrode type and surgical approach on scalar electrode location; and 2) examine the relation between electrode location and postoperative audiologic performance. SETTING: Tertiary academic hospital. PATIENTS: Two hundred twenty post-lingually deafened adults undergoing cochlear implant (CI). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Primary outcome measures of ...

KOL-Index: 9510 . OBJECTIVES: Dysphagia-related sequelae are common after head and neck cancer treatment. Our aims were 1) to document overall and site-specific dysphagia, stricture, and pneumonia rates in a Medicare population, 2) to calculate treatment-specific rates and adjusted odds of developing these complications, and 3) to track changes in rates between 1992 and 1999. METHODS: Head and neck cancer ...

KOL-Index: 8952 . OBJECTIVES: Upper airway injury is a recognized complication of prolonged endotracheal intubation, yet little attention has been paid to the consequences of laryngeal injury and functional impact. The purpose of our study was to prospectively define the incidence of acute laryngeal injury and investigate the impact of injury on breathing and voice outcomes. DESIGN: Prospective cohort ...

KOL-Index: 8859 . Introduction: The optimal management for patients with small, low-risk thyroid cancer is often debated. We aimed to characterize the attitudes and beliefs of providers and patients about management of small, low-risk thyroid cancer and how they relate to overtreatment. Methods: We conducted 34 semi-structured interviews with surgeons (n = 12), endocrinologists (n = 12), and patients with ...

KOL-Index: 8815 . OBJECTIVE: To understand the influence of obesity on the morbidity and mortality outcomes of patients who have sustained fractures of the femur and tibia. DESIGN: Retrospective review. SETTING: Multicenter level I trauma facilities. PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS: Motor vehicle crash victims enrolled in multicenter databases were reviewed. MAIN OUTCOME MEASUREMENTS: Outcome measurements for obese ...

KOL-Index: 8631 . The inpatient burden of dysphagia has primarily been evaluated in patients with stroke. It is unclear whether dysphagia, irrespective of cause, is associated with worse clinical outcomes and higher costs compared to inpatients with similar demographic, hospital, and clinical characteristics without dysphagia. The aim of this study is to assess how a dysphagia diagnosis affects length of ...

KOL-Index: 7999 . OBJECTIVE: This study investigated the role of a specialized physical therapy program for muscle tension dysphonia patients as an adjunct to standard of care voice therapy. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective Cohort Study Methods Adult MTD patients seen between 2007 and 2012 were identified from the clinical database. They were prescribed voice therapy and, if concomitant neck pain, adjunctive ...

KOL-Index: 7930 . BACKGROUND: The extent to which surgeons understand costs associated with expensive operative procedures remains unclear. The goal of the study was to better understand surgeon cost awareness of operating room supplies and implants. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study of faculty (n = 24) and trainees (fellow and residents, n = 27) in the Department of Otolaryngology. Participants ...

KOL-Index: 7878 . OBJECTIVES: Extraesophageal symptoms are common manifestations of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Lack of a definitive diagnostic or treatment standards complicate management, which often leads to multiple specialty consultations, procedures, pharmaceuticals and diagnostic tests. The aim of this study was to determine the economic burden associated with extraesophageal reflux ...

KOL-Index: 7561 . OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Fundoplication is considered in patients with refractory extraesophageal reflux symptoms. However, postoperative symptom resolution is inconsistent. This analysis investigates which presenting symptoms and preoperative objective parameters predict postoperative symptom improvement. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. METHODS: A total of 237 patients referred ...

KOL-Index: 7499 . BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Studies based on food frequency questionnaires suggest that folate and vitamin B12 intake could protect against hearing loss. We investigated whether erythrocyte folate and serum vitamin B12 levels are independently associated with hearing loss in humans. SUBJECTS/METHODS: Participants in the 2003-2004 US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey who had data ...

KOL-Index: 7403 . PURPOSE: Reanimation of facial paralysis is a complex problem with multiple treatment options. One option is hypoglossal-facial nerve grafting, which can be performed in the immediate postoperative period after nerve transection, or in a delayed setting after skull base surgery when the nerve is anatomically intact but function is poor. The purpose of this study is to investigate the ...
