  • Neurochondrin neurological autoimmunity. [Journal Article]
    Neurol Neuroimmunol Neuroinflamm 2019; 6(6)Shelly S, Kryzer TJ, … McKeon A
  • CONCLUSIONS: In our series, neurochondrin autoimmunity was usually accompanied by a nonparaneoplastic rapidly progressive rhombencephalitis with poor neurologic outcomes. Other phenotypes and occasional paraneoplastic causes may occur.
  • Cricotracheal resection for adult subglottic stenosis: Factors predicting treatment failure. [Journal Article]
    Laryngoscope 2019Jethwa AR, Hasan W, … Gullane PJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: CTR and TTA are excellent surgical approaches for adult patients with subglottic stenosis. In this study, 5% of patients required permanent tracheostomy. Factors predicting treatment failure include traumatic stenosis, longer T-tube duration, combined glottic/subglottic stenosis, start of stenosis at the level of vocal cords, postoperative minor complications, and need for repeat surgery.
  • Exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) in children and young adults: From referral to diagnosis. [Journal Article]
    Laryngoscope 2019Shay EO, Sayad E, Milstein CF
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most patients participated in competitive sports, were female, and presented with exertional dyspnea. Most patients were diagnosed with exercise-induced asthma but treated unsuccessfully. Almost one-quarter of our patients showed supraglottic collapse obstructing the airway. Exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction is a more descriptive term than paradoxical vocal fold motion or vocal cord dysfunction, which only describe vocal fold involvement. The time to diagnosis of EILO was shorter than previously reported, suggesting that awareness of this condition is increasing.
  • Environmental Exposures and Asthma in Active Duty Service Members. [Review]
    Curr Allergy Asthma Rep 2019; 19(9):43Wauters RH, Foster BE, Banks TA
  • Reports of respiratory symptoms, including asthma and hyper-reactive airway disease, have been more numerous in the media and medical literature since active duty service members (SM) began to support campaigns in South West Asia (SWA). Numerous environmental exposures have been reported and this review assesses the available evidence surrounding exposures, confounding conditions, and attempts to…
  • An Unusual Cause of Failed Tracheal Decannulation-A Case Report. [Journal Article]
    Indian J Crit Care Med 2019; 23(8):378-379Kambhampati S, Lavanya K
  • Failure of decannulation may occur due to unexpected upper airway problems. However, the presence of a membrane in between the vocal cords is usually rare. We report a case of a 46-year-old female, who presented with focal seizures and progressed to status epilepticus. She was put on a mechanical ventilator because of hypoxic arrest. As she required prolonged ventilatory support, tracheostomy and…
