PURPOSE OF REVIEW We outlined the management of peritonsillar abscess (PTA) through the use of ultrasound, an imaging modality that continues to emerge as a diverse diagnostic and treatment tool. Our review compares the use of ultrasound to alternative diagnostic modalities, particularly computed tomography (CT). Further, the review evaluates how ultrasound(More)
OBJECTIVES (1) To assess the safety and efficacy of outpatient intracapsular tonsillectomy, which has been recently described as a less invasive means of treating obstructive tonsillar hypertrophy, in children younger than 3 years; and (2) to challenge the standard dictum that children younger than 3 years should be admitted to the hospital after tonsil and(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether implementation of universal newborn hearing screening (UNHS) in the state of Illinois has affected the ages at diagnosis of hearing loss and implantation in children receiving cochlear implants and to determine how often children undergoing implantation had UNHS results with no indication of hearing loss (pass). DESIGN(More)
Despite the large number of collection records, there are no recent collections of ixodid ticks of this magnitude in the Waterberg area, Limpopo Province, South Africa. Free-living ticks on a commercial game farm were obtained by a total of 432 drag-samples in eight sample sites from September 2003 to August 2008. The ticks were collected to establish the(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To evaluate the efficacy of microdebrider intracapsular tonsillectomy (MT) as a treatment for pediatric obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and sleep disordered breathing. STUDY DESIGN A retrospective study evaluating polysomnogram outcomes for 26 patients who had undergone MT by a sole surgeon (M.G.) for OSA. METHODS Chart review of(More)
We investigated the relationship between prevalence and severity of clinical signs of Demodex cafferi infection in free-ranging African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) and other factors such as age, sex, pregnancy status, and concomitant infections with bovine tuberculosis (BTB), Rift Valley fever (RVF), and brucellosis (BA). Approximately half of 203 buffalo(More)
IMPORTANCE To our knowledge, this is the first reported cadaveric feasibility study of a master-slave-assisted cochlear implant procedure in the otolaryngology-head and neck surgery field using the da Vinci Si system (da Vinci Surgical System; Intuitive Surgical, Inc). We describe the surgical workflow adaptations using a minimally invasive system and image(More)
Previous assessments of wildlife road mortality have not used directly comparable methods and, at present, there is no standardized protocol for the collection of such data. Consequently, there are no internationally comparative statistics documenting roadkill rates. In this study, we used a combination of experimental trials and road transects to design a(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is the most common sensory birth defect. The purpose of this article is to review the advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) and molecular diagnosis of hereditary hearing loss. RECENT FINDINGS Early diagnosis and detection of SNHL is critical for the development of appropriate speech and language,(More)
IMPORTANCE This is the first description of 3-dimensional (3D) pediatric airway endoscopy in the otolaryngology literature detailing the superior visualization with this technology. Ultimately, enhanced optics may further improve the treatment of airway pathology. OBJECTIVE To report the first case series examining the use of 3D direct laryngoscopy and(More)
