Core needle biopsy (CNB) is used to sample both mammographically and ultrasound detected breast lesions. A diagnosis of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) by CNB does not ensure the absence of invasive cancer upon surgical excision and as a result an upstaged patient may need to undergo additional surgery for axillary nodal evaluation. This study evaluates the(More)
Wire grill brushes are commonly used for cleaning grill grates. Accidental ingestion of a wire bristle from a grill-cleaning brush is a rarely reported foreign body, with only three prior case reports. Although scarce in the literature, we encountered two pediatric cases at the regional children's hospital within 1 year. By presenting these two cases, our(More)
We describe the case of an infant undergoing endoscopic repair of a laryngeal cleft where the combination of dexmedetomidine and propofol infusions was used as the anesthetic technique. With this regimen, endotracheal intubation was unnecessary during the perioperative period, the procedure lasted approximately 3h, and the child recovered uneventfully.(More)
OBJECTIVES We describe our series in the surgical treatment of laryngomalacia using a microdebrider. METHODS We performed a retrospective review of patients who underwent microdebrider-assisted supraglottoplasty for laryngomalacia between October 2004 and February 2008. Patients with neurologic conditions and secondary airway lesions were excluded. The(More)
Paragangliomas are rare tumors that derive from neural crest tissue. Vagal paragangliomas account for only 3% of all head and neck paragangliomas. Patients with vagal paragangliomas typically present with an asymptomatic neck mass and, less frequently, with cranial neuropathies. It is estimated that only 1% to 3% of all head and neck paragangliomas secrete(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe the management and outcomes of seven infants with subglottic cysts. To assess the role of Mitomycin-C in the management of subglottic cysts. To discuss the relationship of subglottic cysts with gastro-esophageal reflux. To extensively review the literature on subglottic cysts. DESIGN Retrospective case series and literature review.(More)
Objectives. To describe the presentation and management of a child with Progressive Transformation of Germinal Centers (PTGC), an uncommon condition characterized by significant persistent lymphadenopathy, who developed papillary thyroid carcinoma and to explore and review potential links between PTGC and neoplastic processes in the head and neck. Methods.(More)
B ranchial cleft cysts are one of the most common congenital anomalies. They may present in different locations, although they are often found along the sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM). Pain, superinfection, and symptoms due to mass effect have been reported. We describe a patient with a very rare complication of significant bradycardia due to carotid(More)
BACKGROUND Frequently encountered complications associated with tympanostomy tube placement have been well documented and are globally recognized. The medial migration of tympanostomy tubes into the middle ear space is a rare complication for which pathogenesis, natural history, and management have not been clearly delineated. OBJECTIVE To describe our(More)
