Flexible Nasopharyngolaryngoscopy for the Assessment of Upper Airway Disorders
Flexible fiberoptic flexible nasopharyngolaryngoscopy (NPL) is safe and noninvasive outpatient department procedure for the assessment of upper airway disorders.


Nasolaryngoscopy in a Family Medicine Clinic: Indications, Findings, and Economics
It is found that nasolaryngoscopy was a safe procedure in the primary care setting, and no major complications occurred in the series of patients reviewed.
Globus sensation: pharyngoesophageal function, psychometric and psychiatric findings, and follow-up in 88 patients.
Pharyngoesophageal disorders may be sensed only vaguely, inducing the globus sensation, and psychological and psychiatric characteristics could be relevant to the discomfort experienced but are unlikely to be etiologically significant.
Voice disorders in patients with suspected laryngo-pharyngeal reflux disease.
Patients with suspected LPRD had significantly increased abnormal perceptual voice characteristics (musculoskeletal tension, hard glottal attack, Glottal fry, restricted tone placement, and hoarseness) compared to controls.
Evaluating hoarseness: keeping your patient's voice healthy.
Any patient with hoarseness persisting for more than two weeks requires a complete evaluation, and when the patient has a history of tobacco use, cancer of the head and neck must be considered and ruled out.
Preliminary study of rhinolaryngoscopy by family physicians.
Preliminary findings suggest that flexible fiberoptic rhinolaryngoscopy by family physicians is a useful examination, requires little time, and is acceptable to patients.
Head and neck manifestations of gastroesophageal reflux disease.
Treated GERD can lead to chronic laryngitis, dysphonia, chronic sore throat, chronic cough, constant throat clearing, granuloma of the true vocal cords and other problems.
Throat related symptoms and voice: development of an instrument for self assessment of throat-problems
For the estimation of self-perceived throat and voice problems the scale on throat related problems together with the present Swedish translation of the Voice Handicap Index, (VHI) the VHI-Throat, proves to be a valid and reliable instrument.
Hoarseness as a sign of possible nonspecific mucosal hyperreactivity in vocal tract.
The study supports the view that vocal dysfunction after exposure to non-specific environmental irritating factors may be triggered mainly by emotional mechanisms such as off-warding reaction or dissociative disorder.
Direct laryngoscopy: a retrospective analysis.
A retrospective analysis of direct laryngoscopies performed at this institution in 1978 was undertaken utilizing computer technology, finding that voice abuse occupations were most commonly associated with vocal cord polyps and tobacco and alcohol use was most frequently associated with laryngeal cancer.
Pilot study on acute voice and throat symptoms related to exposure to organic dust: Preliminary findings from a provocation test
The results suggest that the larynx reacts to organic dust with symptoms that are felt by the patient rather than heard by the voice clinician.
