    Autoimmunity is thought to be one cause of sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). Sera from patients with rapidly progressive hearing loss have been shown to contain antibodies to a 68-kD protein in heterologous inner-ear tissue. Using guinea pig inner-ear tissue as the antigenic substrate and either Western blot or immunofluorescence (IF) or both, we tested sera from 74 patients suspected to have autoimmune hearing loss for inner-ear antibodies. Sera from 73 patients were tested by Western ...

    Vocal fold scar disrupts the mucosal wave and interferes with glottic closure. Treatment involves a multidisciplinary approach that includes voice therapy, medical management, and sometimes surgery. We reviewed the records of the first eight patients who underwent autologous fat implantation for vocal fold scar. Information on the etiology of scar, physical findings, and prior interventions were collected. Videotapes of videostroboscopic findings and perceptual voice ratings [Grade, ...

    OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to establish normative values for the smoothed cepstral peak prominence (CPPS) and its sensitivity and specificity as a measure of dysphonia.

    STUDY DESIGN: Prospective cohort study.

    METHODS: Voice samples of running speech were obtained from 835 patients and 50 volunteers. Eight laryngologists and four speech-language pathologists performed perceptual ratings of the voice samples on the degree of dysphonia/normality using an analog scale. The mean ...

    Importance: Benign vocal fold nodules affect 12% to 22% of the pediatric population, and 95% of otolaryngologists recommend voice therapy as treatment. However, no randomized clinical trials that we are aware of have shown its benefits.

    Objective: To determine the impact of voice therapy in children with vocal fold nodules according to pretherapy and posttherapy scores on the Pediatric Voice-Related Quality of Life (PVRQOL) survey; secondary objectives included changes in phonatory ...

    OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: To compare by meta-analysis the effect of recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) monitoring versus RLN identification alone on true vocal fold palsy rates after thyroidectomy.

    STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review and meta-analysis.

    METHODS: A search of MEDLINE (1966-July 2008), EMBASE (1980-July 2008), Cochrane Central Register of Clinical Trials (CENTRAL), Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, clinicaltrials.gov, and The National Guideline Clearinghouse databases was ...

    Quantification of perceptual voice characteristics allows the assessment of voice changes. Acoustic measures of jitter, shimmer, and noise-to-harmonic ratio (NHR) are often unreliable. Measures of cepstral peak prominence (CPP) may be more reliable predictors of dysphonia. Trained listeners analyzed voice samples from 281 patients. The NHR, amplitude perturbation quotient, smoothed pitch perturbation quotient, percent jitter, and CPP were obtained from sustained vowel phonation, and the ...

    OBJECTIVES: Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) is a pervasive disorder that may cause hoarseness, throat clearing, and other symptoms. These symptoms are particularly problematic in professional voice users. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are the mainstay of current medical management for LPR but may be insufficient in managing some patients' symptoms. Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication (LNF) is well established for treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease with a high success rate, but ...

    OBJECTIVE: To determine the position and anatomic variability of the thyroarytenoid (TA) branch of the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN).

    METHODS: The RLN on 13 human cadaver specimens (24 sides) was dissected to the termination of the TA branch in the TA muscle. A pin was placed at the inferior aspect of the thyroid cartilage at the inferior tubercle. Using a caliper, the distance from the pin to the TA branch of the RLN was measured. The direction of the nerve and number of branches were ...

    Injection laryngoplasty is one of the most frequently performed procedures in patients with voice complaints. Various biomaterials have been used to medialize vocal folds or to treat symptoms of vocal fold scar. The ideal biomaterial would be easily injected through a fine-gauge needle, well tolerated, and long lasting. Injectable collagen preparations fulfill at least two of these criteria, and collagen has been used widely for vocal fold injections.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: We present a ...

    OBJECTIVE: To describe the patient presentation, radiographic findings, and treatment results in a series of eight patients with a diagnosis of intralabyrinthine schwannoma, and to review the presentation of other cases of intralabyrinthine schwannoma in the English otolaryngologic literature.

    METHODS: Retrospective review of patient records, operative reports, and radiologic studies, and review of the literature.

    RESULTS: Eight patients with a variety of otologic symptoms including ...

    New insights into the anatomy and physiology of phonation, along with technological advances in voice assessment and quantification, have led to dramatic improvements in medical voice care. Techniques to prevent vocal fold scar have been among the most important, especially scarring and hoarseness associated with voice surgery. Nevertheless, dysphonia due to vocal fold scar is still encountered all too frequently. Although it is not generally possible to restore such injured voices to ...

    OBJECTIVE: To determine the reliability of objective voice measures used commonly in clinical practice.

    SUBJECTS: Eighteen healthy volunteers (nine males and nine females).

    METHODS: Objective voice measures were performed on 18 healthy volunteers on 10 occasions under similar conditions over a 30-day period. Consistency of measures was analyzed to determine reliability.

    RESULTS: Using currently accepted normative values, intraclass correlation coefficients were moderate (>0.6) for ...

    OBJECTIVE: To report the adverse effects of using calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) paste as a vocal fold filler.

    METHODS: Approval of this study was obtained through the institutional review board at Drexel University College of Medicine. Sixteen patients had 22 vocal fold injections with CaHA paste to treat glottic insufficiency. The initial procedures were performed at three different institutions between January 2006 and August 2009. Diagnosis and treatment of the complications in all ...

    BACKGROUND: Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis (RRP) is a rare disease characterized by the growth of papillomas in the airway and especially the larynx. The clinical course is highly variable among individuals and there is poor understanding of the factors that drive an aggressive vs an indolent course.

    METHODS: A convenience cohort of 339 affected subjects with papillomas positive for only HPV6 or HPV11 and clinical course data available for 1 year or more, from a large multicenter ...

    OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: There is a significant lack of uniform agreement regarding nomenclature for benign vocal fold lesions (BVFLs). This confusion results in difficulty for clinicians communicating with their patients and with each other. In addition, BVFL research and comparison of treatment methods are hampered by the lack of a detailed and uniform BVFL nomenclature.

    STUDY DESIGN: Clinical consensus conferences were held to develop an initial BVFL nomenclature paradigm. Perceptual ...
