OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Tracheal resection anastomoses are often under tension and can be technically challenging. New suture materials such as V-loc (barbed, knotless wound closure device) may offer advantages over conventional methods. The objective of this study is to determine if a running V-loc suture is of comparable tensile strength to conventional(More)
OBJECTIVES A preponderance of literature supports the safety of office-based flexible endoscopic procedures of the upper aerodigestive tract; however, until recently there were no data regarding hemodynamic stability during these procedures. A recent study showed intraprocedure changes in patients' hemodynamic parameters, raising the concern that perhaps(More)
OBJECTIVES We studied a case series to evaluate the effect of topical bethanechol chloride on esophageal function in individuals with ineffective esophageal motility. METHODS Five subjects with ineffective esophageal motility underwent high resolution esophageal manometry. Ten 5 mL liquid swallows were performed to establish a baseline. Five milligrams of(More)
EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE At the conclusion of this presentation, the participants should be aware of the technique and success of in-office transnasal esophageal (TNE)-guided tracheoesophageal puncture (TEP) placement in patients who have failed prior attempts in the operating room or are not healthy enough to undergo general anesthesia. OBJECTIVES The aim(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS No studies to date have examined the clinical safety and efficacy of carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) for vocal fold injection. The current study investigates the voice outcomes and complications of CMC injection. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective review. METHODS All patients who underwent CMC injection from three independent sites in a(More)
The purpose of our study was to evaluate whether swallowing maneuvers designed to impact pharyngeal physiology would also impact esophageal physiology. Healthy volunteers underwent high-resolution manometry while performing three randomized swallowing maneuvers with and without a 5-ml bolus: normal swallowing, Mendelsohn maneuver, and effortful swallowing.(More)
