Congenital laryngeal webs, subglottic stenosis, and laryngeal atresia result from various degrees of failure of airway recanalization as a spectrum. The symptoms also range from asymptomatic to dysphonia and severe airway obstruction. There are a number of methods for management of symptomatic patients. In this article, we discuss a new procedure that was(More)
Lipoid proteinosis (LP) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder. Classical clinical features include warty skin infiltration, papules on the eyelids, skin scarring, as well as extracutaneous abnormalities such as hoarseness of the voice, epilepsy, and neuropsychiatric abnormalities. A defect in the ECM1 gene is responsible for this disease. A(More)
INTRODUCTION Initial methods which used human tissues as reconstruction materials caused different problems including rejection, limited shapes and infection. In 1970s, PHDPE (Medpor®) was introduced by its exclusive advantageous including no donor site morbidity, easily shaped and the minimal foreign body reaction. Hereby, we report our experience of using(More)
The purpose of this paper is to review the methods used for the assessment of muscular tension dysphonia (MTD). The MTD is a functional voice disorder associated with abnormal laryngeal muscle activity. Various assessment methods are available in the literature to evaluate the laryngeal hyperfunction. The case history, laryngoscopy, and palpation are(More)

OBJECTIVES Acoustic measurements have become an essential aspect of voice assessment during the last few decades, and studies have established that normative data is necessary for acoustic analysis. In this study, two aspects of voice are reviewed. These two factors are fundamental frequency and intensity. This study was designed to establish the normal(More)
Although Helicobacter Pylori (HP) was detected in some cases of chronic laryngitis, the results were not confirmed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). By this time, it has not been found in laryngeal lesions by in house PCR, the most sensitive method for detecting the genome tracks. Regarding the previous results and also few numbers of studies about the(More)
BACKGROUND A subjective feeling of nasal airflow obstruction is a common symptom. An objective method for quantitative measurement of nasal airflow has long been desired. Rhinomanometry and acoustic rhinometry have been developed for anatomical and physiological evaluation of nasal obstruction. This study was designed to determine the usefulness of a(More)
BACKGROUND The most common laryngeal mass in children is recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP). Studies have attempted to correlate viral typing and its aggressiveness. METHOD 29 patients with histologically confirmed RRP enrolled in adjuvant therapies. Patients underwent several surgical interventions. RESULTS HPV genotyping demonstrated 45% HPV-6(More)
