Saccades that consistently over- or undershoot their targets gradually become smaller or larger, respectively. The signal that elicits adaptation of saccade size is a difference between eye and target positions appearing repeatedly at the ends of saccades. Here we describe how visual error size affects the size of saccade adaptation. At the end of each(More)
This article reviews the evidence for the evaluation and management for patients with dysphonia. The evidence behind laryngoscopy, laryngostroboscopy, laryngeal imaging, laryngeal electromyography, and disease-specific questionnaires are reviewed. The evidence for management of some of the common conditions leading to dysphonia is also reviewed. This(More)
OBJECTIVE The primary objective was to compare retention of knowledge of surgical risks in parents of children having an adenotonsillectomy who received a preoperative handout or watched a video, in addition to standard counseling. A secondary objective was to determine whether time from counseling to day of surgery affects risk retention. STUDY DESIGN(More)
Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas remain rare tumors representing approximately 0.05% of head and neck tumors. The typical presentation is a male teenager with recurrent epistaxis and nasal obstruction. These tumors were traditionally approached via external and/or intraoral incisions, but many are amenable to endoscopic removal. Preoperative(More)
This article discusses the lessons learned from nearly 2700 free tissue transfer procedures to reconstruct defects of the head and neck at the University of Washington. It discusses the authors' perioperative management practices regarding perioperative tracheotomy tube placement, their method of postoperative flap monitoring, and their current protocol for(More)
Dr. Leonard Furlow first described the double-reversing z-plasty technique for cleft soft palate repair in 1978. This approach allows for repair of an overt or submucous cleft palate, but just as an importantly, provides additional length to the palate and also realigns the palatal musculature. The Furlow palatoplasty (the name by which the procedure is(More)
OBJECTIVES Reports of patient injuries associated with videolaryngoscopy are increasing in the literature. There are a wide variety of opinions regarding both safe use of the device and patient care following aerodigestive tract injury. We have seen an increase in videolaryngoscopy-associated injuries in recent years at our institution. Because of this, we(More)
Importance Segmental mandibulectomy for tumors that distort the buccal surface of the mandible present a reconstructive challenge. Objective To determine whether mandible alignment after navigation-guided mandible reconstruction is better than alignment after non-template-assisted freehand reconstruction and as good as template-assisted reconstruction in(More)
