Intranasal (i.n.) vaccination generates immunity across local, regional, and distant sites. However, nasal dendritic cells (DCs), pivotal for the induction of i.n. vaccine-induced immune responses, have not been studied in detail. Here, by using a variety of parameters, we define nasal DCs in mice and humans. Distinct subsets of “classical” DCs, dependent(More)
OBJECTIVES The h-index has utility in examining the contributions of faculty members by quantifying both the amount and the quality of research output and as such is a metric in approximating academic productivity. The objectives of this study were (1) to evaluate the relationship between h-index and academic rank in plastic surgery and (2) to describe the(More)

This report describes a bilateral sphenoid sinus mucosal flap for the repair of a sellar floor defect and CSF leak following endoscopic endonasal skull base surgery. The key advantage of this technique is enabling the sphenoid mucosal flaps to remain vascularized, which reduces postoperative complications including CSF leakage, recurrent sinusitis,(More)

BACKGROUND High-resolution microendoscopy (HRME) enables real-time imaging of epithelial tissue. The utility of this novel imaging modality for inverted papilloma has not been previously described. This study examines the ability of otolaryngologists to differentiate between images of inverted papilloma and normal sinonasal mucosa obtained with a HRME. (More)
OBJECTIVE Retrosternal goiters pose a significant challenge in determining the indications and appropriate approach for surgical removal while limiting postoperative morbidity and mortality. The objective of this study is to use the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) database to compare outcomes of transcervical and transthoracic(More)
