"Hot Zones" for Otolaryngologists: Assessing the geographic distribution of aerosol-generating procedures amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Am J Otolaryngol 2020 May 27;41(4):102550. Epub 2020 May 27.

Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, OH, USA; Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland, OH, USA. Electronic address:

Objective: Given high COVID-19 viral load and aerosolization in the head and neck, otolaryngologists are subject to uniquely elevated viral exposure in most of their inpatient and outpatient procedures and interventions. While elective activity has halted across the board nationally, the slow plateau of COVID-19 case rates prompts the question of timing of resumption of clinical activity. We sought to prospectively predict geographical "hot zones" for otolaryngological exposure to COVID-19 based on procedural volumes data from 2013 to 2017. Read More

Relating Cepstral Peak Prominence to Cyclical Parameters of Vocal Fold Vibration from High-Speed Videoendoscopy Using Machine Learning: A Pilot Study.

J Voice 2020 Mar 12. Epub 2020 Mar 12.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, New York State University, New York, New York.

Objective: Smoothed cepstral peak prominence (CPPs) has been shown to be an effective indicator of breathiness (Hillenbrand and Houde, 1996). High-speed videoendoscopy (HSV) is frequently being used as a complement to stroboscopy especially when asymmetric or aperiodic vocal fold vibration is present in dysphonic voices. In an HSV image data set obtained with normal (nondisordered) voice subjects, we have observed that some degree of asymmetry is present in many of the vocal fold displacement curves extracted from the HSV exam videos; therefore, we have used this data set for a pilot study to investigate the relationship of CPPs to cyclical vocal fold vibration parameters, including left-right vocal fold (LVRF) phase asymmetry, in subjects with normal (nondisordered) voices.

Aerodynamically driven phonation of individual vocal folds under general anesthesia in canines.

Laryngoscope 2019 Oct 11. Epub 2019 Oct 11.

Department of Surgery, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

Objectives/hypothesis: We previously developed an instrument called the Aerodynamic Vocal Fold Driver (AVFD) for intraoperative magnified assessment of vocal fold (VF) vibration during microlaryngoscopy under general anesthesia. Excised larynx testing showed that the AVFD could provide useful information about the vibratory characteristics of each VF independently. The present investigation expands those findings by testing new iterations of the AVFD during microlaryngoscopy in the canine model. Read More

Dysphonia is often blamed on laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) in the face of a normal flexible laryngoscopic examination. LPR remains primarily (and unfortunately) a diagnosis of exclusion rather than inclusion in the face of vague throat complaints and laryngeal signs attributed to reflux. LPR remains misdiagnosed and overdiagnosed as the cause of many identical, vague throat symptoms and laryngeal complaints. Read More

Laryngoscope 2020 Feb 7;130(2):418-422. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

Department of Otolaryngology, Westmead Hospital, Westmead, New South Wales, Australia.

Objectives/hypothesis: Unilateral vocal fold paralysis is a structural abnormality that often occurs secondary to dysfunction of the recurrent laryngeal nerve and typically presents as a breathy voice. Medialization laryngoplasty is a constellation of procedures that improves apposition of the vocal cords. Many patients, however, fail to experience sufficient improvement in vocal quality postoperatively despite apparent glottic closure on stroboscopy. Read More
