  • 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…
  • A 16q22.2-q23.1 deletion identified in a male infant with West syndrome. [Journal Article]
    Brain Dev 2019Mori T, Goji A, … Kagami S
  • In partial monosomy of the distal part of chromosome 16q, abnormal facial features, intellectual disability (ID), and feeding dysfunction are often reported. However, seizures are not typical and the majority of them were seizure-free. Here we present the case of a 16q22.2-q23.1 interstitial deletion identified in a male patient with severe ID, facial anomalies including forehead protrusions and …
  • Aspiration After Congenital Heart Surgery. [Journal Article]
    Pediatr Cardiol 2019; 40(6):1296-1303Raulston JEB, Smood B, … Alten JA
  • Dysphagia and vocal cord dysfunction are frequent complications after congenital heart surgery. Both are risk factors for aspiration, which can lead to pneumonia, progressive lung disease, and respiratory arrest. A protocol was implemented to promote early detection of aspiration in a high-risk cohort of patients. Retrospective data were collected on all patients under 120 days old who underwent …
  • Management of Vocal Fold Paralysis and Dysphagia for Neurologic Malignancies in Children. [Journal Article]
    Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2019; :3489419857757Nagy P, Beckmann N, … Sheyn A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Patients with vocal fold paralysis secondary to neurologic malignancy can have an improvement in speech and swallowing after a variety of treatments, including speech therapy or early injection laryngoplasty. There was no statistically significant difference in improvement based on the type of intervention utilized. A larger sample size is needed to conclude whether surgical intervention combined with speech therapy leads to more rapid and significant functional improvement than speech therapy alone.
