OBJECTIVE To investigate the temporal relationship between speech auditory brainstem responses and acoustic pattern of the phoneme /ba/. METHODS Speech elicited auditory brainstem responses (Speech ABR) to /ba/ were recorded in 23 normal-hearing subjects. Effect of stimulus intensity was assessed on Speech ABR components latencies in 11 subjects. The(More)
The partial horizontal supracricoid laryngectomy with cricohyoidopexy consists of resection of the whole thyroid cartilage and paraglottic space, as well as the epiglottis and the whole pre-epiglottic space. The cricoid cartilage, the hyoid bone, and at least one arytenoid cartilage are spared. Sixty-eight patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the(More)
One hundred Provox voice prostheses consecutively inserted in 37 patients and replaced only when phonation was impaired or complications noted were analyzed for in situ lifetime, causes for replacement, and complications. The mean in situ lifetime was 311 days. Actuarial analysis (Kaplan-Meier method) of the in situ lifetime revealed that 65.9%, 23.7%, and(More)
The partial horizontal supracricoid laryngectomy with cricohyoidoepiglottopexy consists of resection of the whole thyroid cartilage and paraglottic space. The cricoid cartilage, the hyoid bone, most of the epiglottis, and at least one arytenoid cartilage are conserved. Thirty-six patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the glottis who underwent this(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the incidence of local and regional failure, distant metastasis, and overall survival following transoral lateral oropharyngectomy (TLO) and to determine factors associated with local recurrence. DESIGN Retrospective case series throughout 20 years; mean follow-up of 10 years. SETTING Academic center. PATIENTS A total of 166(More)
A 25-year experience with total conservative parotidectomy for primary benign pleomorphic adenoma (PBPA) of the parotid gland in a consecutive series of 229 patients has been reviewed. This study focuses on survival, morbidity, PBPA recurrence, postoperative facial nerve dysfunction, and Frey's syndrome. Surgical death was never encountered in this study.(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the incidence of local control in patients with "advanced" moderately to well-differentiated endolaryngeal invasive squamous cell carcinoma classified as T3, treated with a supracricoid partial laryngectomy; to identify any statistical relationship; and to analyze the consequences of local recurrence. DESIGN Retrospective(More)
Nineteen patients who presented with infrahyoid epiglottic squamous cell carcinoma with gross pathological preepiglottic space invasion, not amenable to a partial horizontal supraglottic laryngectomy, were offered a supracricoid partial laryngectomy with a cricohyoidopexy technique; this was an attempt to preserve physiological phonation, respiration, and(More)
A review of the postoperative course, complications, and functional outcome of 69 elderly patients (older than 65 years of age) consecutively managed with a supracricoid partial laryngectomy between 1977 and 1993 is presented. The tumors were glottic and supraglottic in origin in 53 and 16 patients, respectively. A cricohyoidoepiglottopexy, a(More)
The supracricoid hemilaryngopharyngectomy consists of resection of the supracricoid hemilarynx and ipsilateral pyriform sinus. Two hundred forty patients underwent this procedure from 1964 through 1983. Two hundred twenty-two patients had no airway impairment, and 204 recovered normal deglutition. The local recurrence rate was 5.2%. Indications for the(More)
