OBJECTIVES New techniques are being utilized to improve outcomes for endoscopic sinus surgery, including newer forms of packing. Platelet gel is an innovative technique that holds many advantages, including comfort, hemostasis, and growth factors that may improve wound healing. This report discusses the theoretical advantages of this packing material and(More)
Nonenzymatic glycosylation (glycation) of proteins, often referred to as the Maillard reaction, has been proposed to play a role in age and diabetes-related processes by forming protein and DNA adducts and cross-links. These cross-links may contribute to erectile dysfunction by scavenging nitric oxide, which is needed for erection. As the basis for a(More)
Iontophoresis is a painless technique for topical anesthesia that uses an electric field to drive charged ions across an epithelial surface. The safety of this technique for laceration repair has never been demonstrated. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of iontophoretic fields on rapidly proliferating cells involved in laceration(More)
The incidence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has reached epidemic proportions, and it is an often unrecognized cause of perioperative morbidity and mortality. Profound hypoxic injury from apnea during the postoperative period is often misdiagnosed as cardiac arrest due to other causes. Almost a quarter of patients entering a hospital for elective surgery(More)
Adenotonsillectomy is widely considered to be an effective treatment for sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in the pediatric population. However, in some patients, SDB and OSA can persist despite surgical treatment with adenotonsillectomy. Options to manage persistent SDB/OSA depend on symptoms and severity. Many patients(More)
