Prominent publications by George H Zalzal

KOL-Index: 15118 . OBJECTIVE: To determine the extent of correlation between sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) and abnormal temporal bone anatomy in children. DESIGN: Axial and coronal high-resolution computed tomographic scans of the temporal bones of 247 children (494 ears) aged 2 months to 15 years with and without SNHL were blindly reviewed. The presence or absence of mild or severe cochlear dysplasias, ...

KOL-Index: 10970 . Children undergoing placement of bilateral myringotomy tubes (BMT) often exhibit pain-related behavior (agitation) in the postanesthesia care unit. We compared the emergence and recovery profiles of pediatric patients who received sevoflurane with or without supplementary intranasal fentanyl for BMT surgery. By using a prospective, double-blinded design, 150 children 6 mo to 5 yr of age, ...

KOL-Index: 10147 . Importance: Pediatric tracheostomy is commonly performed for upper airway obstruction and prolonged mechanical ventilation. Children undergoing tracheostomy typically have multiple chronic medical problems that place them at high risk for readmission and additional complications. Objective: To determine whether the institution of a postoperative protocol for parent education and wound care ...

KOL-Index: 9270 . OBJECTIVE: To determine if all children with enlarged vestibular aqueducts (EVAs) have development of uniform progressive sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). To determine whether the size of the EVA correlates with severity, frequencies involved, and stability of SNHL. To determine if the audiologic pattern of SNHL correlates with likelihood of progression of SNHL. DESIGN: Retrospective ...

KOL-Index: 9150 . OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to analyze the secretory cell population and distribution of MUC5B and MUC7 mucins in the sinus mucosa of pediatric patients with and without chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). METHODS: Sinus mucosal specimens were collected at surgery in a pediatric tertiary care facility. Histologic, immunohistochemical, and morphometric analyses were performed on ...

KOL-Index: 8142 . OBJECTIVES: To determine the necessity of rigid endoscopy in the diagnosis and management of laryngomalacia and its associated synchronous airway lesions (SALs), to analyze the incidence of SALs associated with laryngomalacia and their significance, and to determine the need for epiglottoplasty in management of laryngomalacia. DESIGN: Retrospective medical chart review. SETTING: Tertiary ...

KOL-Index: 8137 . OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Create a competency-based assessment tool for pediatric tracheotomy. STUDY DESIGN: Blinded, modified, Delphi consensus process. METHODS: Using the REDCap database, a list of 31 potential items was circulated to 65 expert surgeons who perform pediatric tracheotomy. In the first round, items were rated as "keep" or "remove," and comments were incorporated. In the ...

KOL-Index: 7938 . OBJECTIVES: To assess the complications of ventilation tubes that were retained in children for 2 years or longer and the necessity of removal. DESIGN: A retrospective chart review of all patients who underwent ventilation tube removal from 1997 to 2000, with the exclusion of patients with craniofacial anomalies. SETTING: A tertiary children's hospital. PATIENTS: One hundred twenty-six ...

KOL-Index: 7332 . IMPORTANCE: Minimally invasive endoscopic techniques are an appealing alternative to open surgical management of pediatric subglottic stenosis (SGS), but more information is needed to understand the comparative risks, benefits, and limitations of such interventions. OBJECTIVE: To compare the effectiveness of endoscopic balloon dilation (EBD) and laryngotracheoplasty (LTP) in pediatric ...

KOL-Index: 7061 . OBJECTIVES: We report outcomes of balloon dilation in the endoscopic management of pediatric subglottic stenosis (SGS) and discuss the role of balloon dilation in both primary and adjuvant therapy. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of treatment with noncompliant, high-pressure balloons for SGS in the past 2 years at a tertiary pediatric hospital. Fifty-one dilations were ...

KOL-Index: 6871 . We reviewed 10 children who presented with facial paralysis after the onset of acute otitis media. The objective of the study was to examine the outcome of facial paralysis in children with acute otitis media treated without facial nerve decompression. Two groups were identified: 8 patients with incomplete paralysis and 2 with complete paralysis. Seven of the 8 patients with incomplete ...

KOL-Index: 6832 . CT scan of the temporal bone has become a frequently ordered test for diagnosis of temporal bone pathology. We retrospectively examined our experience with CT scans of the temporal bones in 124 consecutive children from January 1983 to September 1984 in an attempt to assess its usefulness in diagnosis and treatment of ear disease in children. Patients were divided into six categories ...

KOL-Index: 6657 . OBJECTIVES: To determine whether there are any changes in the incidence and management of neonatal subglottic stenosis (SGS). METHODS: A retrospective chart review of 416 infants who were admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit of the Children's National Medical Center between July 1, 1995, and June 30, 1996, was carried out. The incidence of airway obstruction requiring anterior ...

KOL-Index: 6424 . OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to analyze MUC5AC protein expression in sinus mucosal specimens of children with and without chronic sinusitis. METHODS: Morphometric, histologic, and immunohistochemical analyses were carried out on sinus mucosa of 7 children with chronic sinusitis and 6 children without sinusitis. RESULTS: MUC5AC protein was expressed in a subset of goblet cells ...
