OBJECTIVE To compare the audiologic outcome and feasibility of bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA) and external auditory canal reconstruction (EACR) surgeries in pediatric patients presenting a congenital aural atresia (CAA). METHODS A retrospective chart review of 40 patients operated in our tertiary pediatric care center between 2002 and 2010 was(More)
BACKGROUND Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm usually found in the pleura, soft tissues and visceral organs. We describe one case arising in the mesentery, which is an exceptional localization. CASE PRESENTATION A 71-year-old man was referred to our establishment for a painless hypogastric mass. Further investigation revealed a(More)
BACKGROUND Ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration (USFNA) biopsies of thyroid nodules sometimes create a decision-making dilemma for surgeons as they may yield falsely benign results. The McGill Thyroid Nodule Score + (MTNS+) was developed to aid in clinical guidance regarding the management of patients with these USFNA results. The aim of this study was(More)
OBJECTIVES BAHA implantation surgery in a pediatric population is usually done in two-stage surgeries. This study aims to evaluate the safety and possible superiority of the one-stage over the two-stage BAHA implantation and which one would be the best standard of care for our pediatric patients. METHODS A retrospective chart review of 55 patients(More)
BACKGROUND Traditional teaching demonstrated that solitary thyroid nodules were more likely to be malignant. Newer studies show that there is no clear answer regarding the influence of the number or the distribution of nodules on the risk of malignancy. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to establish whether patients undergoing thyroid surgery and(More)
Infection with nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) is uncommon in the head and neck; therefore there is no clear consensus on treating these infections. Our objective was to report our experience with a unique case of NTM infection of the parotid in an immunocompetent patient, in order to determine appropriate management through our experience with this(More)
BACKGROUND Thyroid nodules are common and often benign, although prove to be malignant upon surgical pathology in 5-15% of cases. When assessed with ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (USFNA), 15-30% of the nodules yield an indeterminate result. The Afirma® gene expression classifier (AGEC) was developed to improve management of indeterminate thyroid(More)
Otolaryngology-head and neck surgery (OTL-HNS) residents face a variety of difficult, high-stress situations, which may occur early in their training. Since these events occur infrequently, simulation-based learning has become an important part of residents' training and is already well established in fields such as anesthesia and emergency medicine. In the(More)
