Pediatric obstructive sleep apnea occurs in about 2% of children, and manifests as snoring, difficulty breathing, and witnessed apneic spells. Daytime symptoms include excessive sleepiness with poor performance and behavior problems. Severe forms may be associated with failure-to-thrive or death. The gold standard diagnostic procedure is overnight(More)
Acoustic rhinometry evaluates the geometry of the nasal cavity with acoustic reflections and provides information about nasal cross-sectional area and nasal volume within a given distance. Variations in internal nasal diameters have attracted increased interest since the advent of endoscopic surgical techniques. Race is known to be one of the most important(More)
Fungal sinusitis is a disease which can be grouped into invasive and noninvasive forms. The invasive entities include the acute/fulminant and chronic/indolent forms. The noninvasive entities include the fungus ball and allergic forms. The noninvasive forms, however, can develop into invasive disease under certain immunosuppressive states. The patient in(More)
Acoustic rhinometry is an appropriate method for detecting and recording the nasal cycle in normal subjects in terms of the cross-sectional areas and volume of the nasal cavity. In this study, we tried to detect and to define the nasal cycle in normal subjects so that we might develop a reliable and reproducible technique to be used in conjunction with(More)
Mold allergy surveys are an important part of the correct identification and treatment of mold allergies. This study included 100 patients who were referred to a Midwestern allergy clinic for the evaluation of rhinitis, suspected to be of allergic origin. An in vitro screening test for allergen-specific IgE (ImmunoCAP) comprised of 10 allergens, including(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize the nasal opening of the human nasopalatine duct (NPD; a major duct of the vomeronasal system used in animals for chemical communication) by identifying its location, categorizing variations in physical characteristics, and assessing frequency of detection. DESIGN Two studies: (1) general study incorporating endoscopic(More)
Acoustic rhinometry (AR) evaluates the geometry of the nasal cavity with acoustic reflections and provides information about nasal cross-sectional areas (CSA) and nasal volume within a given distance. The accuracy of the information obtained by AR was compared with that of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the nasal cavity. Five healthy subjects were(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to report on a serious adverse event during balloon dilation of pediatric subglottic stenosis. METHOD This study is a case report on safety and risk. RESULTS Airway balloon dilation risk and consideration of serious complications were re-evaluated. CONCLUSIONS Airway balloon dilation carries the risk of acute and(More)
Acoustic rhinometry (AR) was used to objectively measure the success of septoplasty in relieving nasal obstruction caused by septal deviation. In addition, the patients were given a questionnaire to subjectively assess symptoms of congestion, rhinorrhea, and sneezing. Patients diagnosed with a septal deviation requiring surgery to eliminate obstruction were(More)
PURPOSE Nitric oxide (NO) in the exhaled air is mainly produced by the upper respiratory airway mucosa, and the output of NO has been found to differ from normal in sinonasal disease. In allergic rhinitis (AR) nasal NO output (V(NO)) has been reported to increase compared with healthy individuals. The purpose of this study was to observe daily variations in(More)
