INTRODUCTION Inverted papilloma (IP) is a benign but locally aggressive sinonasal tumor. Those localized to the maxillary sinus or medial maxillary wall have classically been removed through an external approach. In recent years, endoscopic removal has been advocated as an effective, minimally invasive approach. Successful endoscopic management is based on(More)
Facial nerve outcomes and surgical complication rates for other cranial nerves were evaluated retrospectively after the resection of large acoustic neuromas. The charts of all patients who underwent surgical removal of an acoustic neuroma between 1992 and 2001 at New York University Medical Center were reviewed. Fifty-four patients with tumors measuring 3(More)
OBJECTIVE Physicians rarely assess smell function, largely because of time considerations. Therefore, there is clinical need for very brief cranial nerve I screening tests. Although a few such tests exist, none have been adequately validated. The goal of this study was to empirically assess the utility of a three-item microencapsulated odor identification(More)
BACKGROUND Image-guided functional endoscopic sinus surgery (IG-FESS) using preoperatively acquired CT images for navigation has been proven to facilitate complicated endoscopic sinus procedures and decrease the need for revision procedures. However, this system does not render the intraoperative anatomic changes that occur throughout the procedure. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive value of responses to the following questionnaire statements in detecting taste loss: "I can detect salt in chips, pretzels, or salted nuts," "I can detect sourness in vinegar, pickles, or lemon," "I can detect sweetness in soda, cookies, or ice cream," and "I can(More)
BACKGROUND Orbital decompression is frequently performed in the management of patients with sight-threatening and disfiguring Graves' ophthalmopathy. The quantitative measurements of the change in orbital volume after orbital decompression procedures are not definitively known. Furthermore, the quantitative effect of septal deviation on volume change has(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of cochlear implants in human immunodeficiency virus-infected individuals and correlate these results with a proposed pathophysiological mechanism of human immunodeficiency virus-associated hearing loss. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case series and temporal bone analysis of deceased human immunodeficiency virus-positive(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether training otorhinolaryngology residents to criterion performance levels (proficiency) on the Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Simulator produces individuals whose performance in the operating room is at least equal to those who are trained by performing a fixed number of surgical procedures. DESIGN Prospective cohort. SETTING Two(More)
