If a patient is not responding to medical management for presumed croup, the otolaryngology team is occasionally consulted for direct laryngoscopy and bronchoscopy (DLB) to rule out tracheitis or another airway pathology. We conducted a study to determine if inpatient DLB in acute croup is safe and efficacious and to correlate preoperative vital signs with intraoperative findings. Read More

Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, Melbourne, Victoria.

Croup remains the commonest reason for acute upper airway obstruction in children, yet there are scarce contemporary data of airway management in those requiring intubation. We performed a retrospective analysis of the intensive care management of children intubated for croup in two quaternary Paediatric Intensive Care Units: Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne, Australia and Alberta Children's Hospital Calgary, Canada. Patients intubated for less than three days were compared with those intubated for greater than three days. Read More

A new videokymography system for evaluation of the vibration pattern of entire vocal folds.

Auris Nasus Larynx 2016 Jun 18;43(3):315-21. Epub 2015 Nov 18.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Bundang Jesaeng Hospital, Deajin Medical Center, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

Objective: To overcome the limitations of previous videokymography methods, we developed a new videokymography system for the evaluation of the whole mucosal wave of the entire vocal cord mucous membrane.

Methods: To confirm the usefulness of the new videokymography system, we performed videokymography to evaluate the mucosal wave of the vocal folds during modal and falsetto phonation in normal adult males. Additionally, we serially performed both laryngeal videostroboscopy and the new videokymography method in patients diagnosed with acute ulcerative laryngitis. Read More

Research Unit for Woman's and Children's Health, Copenhagen University Hospital, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Background: Earlier studies have shown that delivery by cesarean section (CS) is associated with an increased risk of disease associated with immune function in the offspring, but these studies have generally not discriminated between the effect of acute and elective CS.

Objective: We sought to further explore these associations using discrimination between the effects of acute versus elective CS.

Methods: We performed a population- and national register-based cohort study including all children born in Denmark from January 1997 through December 2012. Read More

Antibiot Khimioter 2015 ;60(1-2):19-26

Unlabelled: Rengalin is a release-active combination antitussive drug based on antibodies to bradykinin, to histamine and morphine. It acts at various mechanisms of cough reflex by modifying endogenous target molecules and their interaction with receptors. The drug's efficacy, as demonstrated previously in experimental and clinical studies, is mediated by specific release-activity obtained as a result of the production process. Read More
