  • KTP Laser Treatment of Early Glottic Cancer: A Multi-Institutional Retrospective Study. [Journal Article]
    Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol. 2020 Jul 04 [Online ahead of print]Parker NP, Weidenbecher MS, … Lott DG
  • CONCLUSIONS: A multi-institutional, retrospective case series of TLM-KTP ablation of EGC demonstrated excellent oncologic outcomes when close surveillance and proactive re-treatments were utilized. Disease-specific survival, overall survival, and vocal function were excellent. Additional studies are necessary to further analyze the merits and risks of this treatment approach.
  • Amplitude Effects of Vocal Tract Resonance Adjustments When Singing Louder. [Journal Article]
    J Voice. 2020 Jul 02 [Online ahead of print]Vurma A
  • In the literature on vocal pedagogy we may find suggestions to increase the mouth opening when singing louder. It is known that sopranos tend to sing loud high notes with a wider mouth opening which raises the frequency of the first resonance of the vocal tract (fR1) to tune it close to the fundamental. Our experiment with classically trained male singers revealed that they also tended to raise t…
  • Vocal Quality, Symptoms, and Habits in Musical Theater Actors. [Journal Article]
    J Voice. 2020 Jul 02 [Online ahead of print]D'haeseleer E, Quintyn F, … Van Lierde K
  • CONCLUSIONS: Musical theater students and actors are elite vocal performers with comparable excellent objective vocal measures (DSI, AVQI). In both groups, an increased number of VTD and complaints of the singing voice were reported. Especially students were vulnerable for stress, vocal misuse, VTD, and pain symptoms. The findings suggest that musical theater actors are a risk group for developing voice disorders requiring multidimensional voice assessment and voice care.
  • The Effect of Upper Airway Ailments on Teachers' Experience of Vocal Fatigue. [Journal Article]
    J Voice. 2020 Jul 02 [Online ahead of print]Cantor-Cutiva LC, Banks RE, Hunter EJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: It may be likely that an individuals' change in reported vocal fatigue over time may be also associated with health-related factors, such as reflux and seasonal allergies rather than just changes in voice production. These associated factors should be considered and potentially controlled for in future research and clinical practice surrounding teachers' experience of vocal fatigue.
  • Intrinsic Laryngeal Lipoma Treated with Transoral CO₂ Laser Microsurgery: An Unusual Case Report. [Journal Article]
    Am J Case Rep. 2020 Jul 03; 21:e920528.Lombardo N, Lobello N, … Motta G
  • CONCLUSIONS: Laryngeal lipomas are benign and rare lesions, in particular intrinsic lipomas are uncommon, but, if they grow, they can cause life-threatening symptoms. In our case, a lipoma reached a size of around 2 centimeters and was not pedunculated, only a histopathological examination of the surgical specimens could provide a differential diagnosis against a lipoma-like liposarcoma. The use of Transoral Laser CO₂ Micro-laryngoscopy (TLM) provided good management of a small intrinsic lipomas of the larynx, minimizing the potential for relapses.
  • Gay Voice: Stable Marker of Sexual Orientation or Flexible Communication Device? [Journal Article]
    Arch Sex Behav. 2020 Jul 03 [Online ahead of print]Daniele M, Fasoli F, … Maass A
  • Listeners rely on vocal features when guessing others' sexual orientation. What is less clear is whether speakers modulate their voice to emphasize or to conceal their sexual orientation. We hypothesized that gay individuals adapt their voices to the social context, either emphasizing or disguising their sexual orientation. In Study 1 (n = 20 speakers, n = 383 Italian listeners and n = 373 Britis…
  • How an aglossic speaker produces an alveolar-like percept without a functional tongue tip. [Journal Article]
    J Acoust Soc Am. 2020 Jun; 147(6):EL460.Toutios A, Xu M, … Narayanan S
  • It has been previously observed [McMicken, Salles, Berg, Vento-Wilson, Rogers, Toutios, and Narayanan. (2017). J. Commun. Disorders, Deaf Stud. Hear. Aids 5(2), 1-6] using real-time magnetic resonance imaging that a speaker with severe congenital tongue hypoplasia (aglossia) had developed a compensatory articulatory strategy where she, in the absence of a functional tongue tip, produced a plosive…
  • Ambulatory monitoring of Lombard-related vocal characteristics in vocally healthy female speakers. [Journal Article]
    J Acoust Soc Am. 2020 Jun; 147(6):EL552.Whittico TH, Ortiz AJ, … Mehta DD
  • Speakers typically modify their voice in the presence of increased background noise levels, exhibiting the classic Lombard effect. Lombard-related characteristics during everyday activities were recorded from 17 vocally healthy women who wore an acoustic noise dosimeter and ambulatory voice monitor. The linear relationship between vocal sound pressure level and environmental noise level exhibited…
  • The vocal repertoire of preterm infants: Characteristics and possible applications. [Journal Article]
    Infant Behav Dev. 2020 Jun 28; 60:101463.André V, Durier V, … Lemasson A
  • We investigated infants' capacities to express themselves orally at very early developmental stages. Most reports focus on crying when in pain or hungry. We evaluated young preterm infants' spontaneous vocal production in non-painful contexts. We identified a vocal repertoire composed of nine types of vocalisations. High-pitched sounds were associated with relaxed postures, implying a positive va…
  • Estimation of Subglottal Pressure From Neck Surface Vibration in Patients With Voice Disorders. [Journal Article]
    J Speech Lang Hear Res. 2020 Jul 01 [Online ahead of print]Marks KL, Lin JZ, … Mehta DD
  • Purpose Given the established linear relationship between neck surface vibration magnitude and mean subglottal pressure (Ps) in vocally healthy speakers, the purpose of this study was to better understand the impact of the presence of a voice disorder on this baseline relationship. Method Data were obtained from participants with voice disorders representing a variety of glottal conditions, inclu…
  • An institutional assessment of sperm cryospreservation and fertility counselling in pubertal male cancer survivors. [Journal Article]
    J Pediatr Urol. 2020 Jun 10 [Online ahead of print]Kapadia A, Shoureshi PS, … Seideman CA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study demonstrates a stagnant rate of fertility counseling and preservation despite increased advocacy. The retrospective nature of our study limited our ability to assess the counselling that occurred, and the lack of granular race data limited study of the implicit selection bias that may be involved in such counseling. As more institutions move toward a multi-disciplinary care model, we believe that pediatric urologists or fertility specialists must play a vocal role in the care of these at-risk adolescents.Despite increasing advocacy for fertility preservation, our data shows no significant change in previously reported trends. Patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma have a higher rate of counseling and cryopreservation in comparison to those with other malignancies.
  • Two trajectories of functional recovery in thyroid surgery-related unilateral vocal fold paralysis. [Journal Article]
    Surgery. 2020 Jun 27 [Online ahead of print]Pei YC, Lu YA, … Fang TJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Among patients with thyroid surgery-related unilateral vocal fold paralysis, superior laryngeal nerve injury induces a distinctively different recovery trajectory compared with those without superior laryngeal nerve injury characterized by less reinnervation of vocal fold adductors and worse presentation in terms of the glottal gap and maximum phonation time. This study emphasizes the importance of superior laryngeal nerve function and its preservation in thyroid surgery.
  • Voice-Related Quality of Life in Post-Laryngectomy Rehabilitation: Tracheoesophageal Fistula's Wellness. [Journal Article]
    Int J Environ Res Public Health. 2020 Jun 26; 17(12)Cocuzza S, Maniaci A, … La Mantia I
  • CONCLUSIONS: The criteria of low resistance to airflow, optimal tracheoesophageal retention, prolonged device life, simple patient maintenance, and comfortable outpatient surgery are the reference standard for obtaining good QoL results, especially over time. Furthermore, the correct phenotyping of the patient based on the main outcomes achieved at clinical follow-up guarantees the primary objective of the identification of a better quality of life.
  • A Review of Methods for the Preservation of Laryngeal Nerves During Thyroidectomy. [Review]
    Sisli Etfal Hastan Tip Bul. 2018; 52(2):79-91.Uludağ M, Tanal M, İşgör A
  • The recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) provides motor innervation to the abductor and adductor muscles of the vocal cord, whereas the external branch of the superior laryngeal nerve (EBSLN) provides motor innervation to the cricothyroid muscle, which is the tensor muscle of the vocal cord. Both the RLN and the EBSLN are anatomically close to the thyroid and are therefore at risk of injury during thy…
  • Complication Risk in Secondary Thyroid Surgery. [Journal Article]
    Sisli Etfal Hastan Tip Bul. 2018; 52(1):19-25.Aygün N, Besler E, … Uludağ M
  • CONCLUSIONS: When performed with a meticulous and attentive technique, secondary surgical intervention can be applied without increasing the incidence of permanent complications. Though there is substantial risk associated with all of these procedures, the rate of vocal cord paralysis was similar to that seen after primary intervention, and was thought to be related to surgical experience and technique, as well as the use of IONM.
  • Long-term effects of vagus nerve stimulation in refractory pediatric epilepsy: A single-center experience. [Journal Article]
    Epilepsy Behav. 2020 Jun 27; 110:107147.Yalnizoglu D, Ardicli D, … Topcu M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our series had a diverse etiological profile and patients with transition to adult care. Long-term follow-up showed that VNS is an effective and well-tolerated treatment modality for refractory childhood onset epilepsy. Age at implantation, duration of epilepsy and underlying etiology are not found to be predictors of responsiveness to VNS. Higher response rates were observed for a subset of patients with focal epileptiform discharges.
