Laryngeal aspergillosis following high dose inhaled fluticasone therapy for asthma. (1/196)

The case history is presented of a 75 year old man with chronic asthma who was treated with inhaled fluticasone propionate in a daily dose of 2 mg using a Diskhaler. After three years of treatment he developed progressive hoarseness. Both vocal cords were colonised by Aspergillus fumigatus which formed a white slough on the surface. Biopsy specimens showed changes suggestive of laryngeal aspergillosis with an ulcerated epithelium, fibrinopurulent debris, and colonies of fungal hyphae. A slow recovery occurred after three months of treatment with topical amphotericin and with cessation of inhaled corticosteroids. Laryngoscopy is recommended if hoarseness occurs during treatment with fluticasone.  (+info)

Angled telescopic surgery, an approach for laryngeal diagnosis and surgery without suspension. (2/196)

CONTEXT: Many methods have been used successfully for the diagnosis and treatment of laryngeal diseases. Microscopic and, recently, telescopic surgery represent the state of the art in endoscopic laryngeal surgery but drawbacks are possible during their application. To keep the suspension apparatus adequately positioned, excessive force is sometimes placed on the upper teeth and tongue with the laryngoscope tube causing damage. Complications in relation to the pharynx, larynx and cardiovascular system have also been reported. OBJECTIVE: In order to reduce complications resulting from the manipulation or stimulation of the upper aerodigestive tract and from torque forces on the upper teeth. We present a method of larynx surgery in which laryngeal suspension is not required. DESIGN: Technical report. TECHNIQUES: We have devised a fiber-optic telescope with its 40mm distal portion deviated 60 degrees from the direction of the proximal portion. This angle was taken by measuring patients immediately before standard microlaryngeal surgery was performed. The surgical instruments have the same angle as the telescope, in order to work on the larynx. This technique provides an image that is not limited by the distal aperture of the laryngoscope and has an advantage in that magnification and illumination may be provided by changing the distance of the lesion from the tip of the instrument. we have operated on four patients with laryngeal diseases and have had no complications as a result of this approach. We feel that this technique gives us the freedom to view the lesions better and helps to minimize the drawbacks caused by laryngeal suspension.  (+info)

Inspiratory vocal cord dysfunction, a new approach in treatment. (3/196)

Vocal cord dysfunction is a well recognized respiratory condition in which adduction of the vocal cords during either inspiration or expiration, or both, causes functional airways obstruction. Diagnosis is usually made by laryngofibreoscopy, however treatment of this condition has generally been unsatisfactory, requiring a multi-disciplinary approach consisting of speech therapy, psychological counselling, sedatives and anaesthetic agents. Here we use an innovative approach which requires relatively inexpensive and simple anaesthetic equipment in order to manipulate airways resistance and thus reduce any vocal cord dysfunction as it occurs. The patient involved found instant relief when using this simple device which is easy to use and is portable.  (+info)

Amyloidosis of the larynx: a clinicopathologic study of 11 cases. (5/196)

Laryngeal amyloidosis (LA) is uncommon and poorly understood, with limited long-term clinicopathologic and immunophenotypic studies in the literature. Eleven cases of LA were retrieved from the files of the Otorhinolaryngic-Head & Neck Tumor Registry from 1953 to 1990. The histology, histochemistry, immunohistochemistry, and follow-up were reviewed. All patients (three women and eight men) presented with hoarseness at an average age of 37.8 years. The lesions, polypoid or granular, measured an average of 1.6 cm and involved the true vocal cords only (n = 4), false vocal cord only (n = 1), or were transglottic (n = 6). An acellular, amorphous, eosinophilic material was present in the stroma, often accentuated around vessels and seromucous glands, which reacted positively with Congo red. A sparse lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate was present in all cases that demonstrated light chain restriction by immunohistochemistry in three cases (kappa = 2, lambda = 1). Serum and urine electrophoreses were negative in all patients. Treatment was limited to surgical excision, including a single laryngectomy. Six patients manifested either recurrent and/or multifocal/systemic disease: two patients with light chain restriction were dead with recurrent disease (mean, 11.1 years); two patients were dead with no evidence of disease (mean, 31.7 years); and two patients were alive, one with light chain restriction and recurrent and multifocal disease (41.6 years) and one with no evidence of disease after a single recurrence (43.4 years). The remaining five patients were either alive or had died with no evidence of disease an average of 32.4 years after diagnosis. No patient developed multiple myeloma or an overt B-cell lymphoma. LA is an uncommon indolent lesion that may be associated with multifocal disease (local or systemic). The presence of an associated monoclonal lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate and recurrent/multifocal disease in the respiratory or gastrointestinal tract of a few cases and the lack of development of a systemic plasma cell dyscrasia or overt systemic B-cell malignancy suggest that some LA may be the result of an immunocyte dyscrasia or tumor of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue.  (+info)

Beyond heartburn: extraesophageal manifestations of gastroesophageal reflux disease. (6/196)

A variety of extraesophageal presentations of chronic acid reflux disease may be encountered in practice, and it is important to diagnose and manage them appropriately. Some of these patients are asymptomatic; others have symptoms most commonly associated with a pulmonary or otolaryngologic disorder. An aggressive trial of antireflux medication can often improve or resolve these symptoms, indicating that gastroesophageal reflux disease is the primary contributing component. In cases where such medication trials fail, additional diagnostic methods may be needed to determine the source of the symptoms.  (+info)

Paradoxical vocal cord adduction mimicking as acute asthma in a pediatric patient. (7/196)

We report an adolescent girl with paradoxical vocal cord adduction who presented with acute onset of hyperventilation, wheezing and stridor that did not respond to bronchodilator and anti-inflammation therapy. The paradoxical vocal cord motion was confirmed by flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopic examination. We found the stridor was induced by hyperventilation, and was caused by paradoxical vocal cord movement. The abnormal cord motion may be psychogenic and could be misdiagnosed as asthma. It is important to investigate the underlying background and social history and to avoid unnecessary use of beta-agonists, steroids, and even endotracheal intubation or tracheostomy.  (+info)

Spontaneous supraglottic haemorrhage in a patient receiving warfarin sodium treatment. (8/196)

A case of spontaneous, isolated supraglottic haemorrhage in a patient recently started with warfarin sodium treatment is described. The symptoms of sore throat, dysphonia, stridor, dysphagia or a neck swelling in a patient taking anticoagulants should alert the clinician to the possibility of this rare but potentially fatal complication.  (+info)

Vocal cord dysfunction (VCD) is an uncommon condition which often mimics asthma in presentation and severity. We present nine- and 11-year-old female siblings with vocal cord dysfunction, which is a dysfunction of the larynx involving unintentional paradoxical adduction of the vocal cords during inspiration. We evaluated the use of exercise testing in conjunction with pulmonary function testing in suspected vocal cord dysfunction. Although normal pulmonology function tests were elicited with the patient at rest, exercise testing revealed blunting of the expiratory loop with attenuation of the inspiratory loop unique to VCD. The child underwent video laryngoscopy in the specialised voice clinic, which confirmed vocal cord dysfunction. Exercise testing is a rapid and noninvasive means of diagnosing vocal cord dysfunction in a small subset of patients, but video laryngoscopy, with training manoeuvres to elicit paradoxical vocal cord movements in VCD, remains the gold standard of diagnosis of VCD ...
Paradoxical vocal cord motion disorder (PVCM), also called vocal cord dysfunction, is an important differential diagnosis for asthma. The disorder is often misdiagnosed as asthma leading to unnecessary drug use, very high medical utilisation and occasionally tracheal intubation or tracheostomy. Laryngoscopy is the gold standard for diagnosis of PVCM. Speech therapy and psychotherapy are considered the cornerstone of management of this disorder. The aim of this article is to increase the awareness of PVCM among doctors, highlighting the main characteristics that distinguish it from asthma and discuss the recent medical achievements and the possible future perspectives related to this disorder.. ...

The use of the s/z ratio as a clinical indicator of laryngeal pathology was investigated with 28 dysphonic subjects with laryngeal pathology (nodules or polyps), 36 dysphonic subjects without laryngeal pathology, and 86 normal-speaking subjects. While no statistical difference was found between the three groups in their ability to sustain /s/, the subjects with laryngeal pathology had significantly lower duration times for /z/ than subjects in the other two groups. The computed s/z ratios were significantly higher for the dysphonic subjects with laryngeal pathology; subjects with functional dysphonia free of laryngeal pathology demonstrated the same s/z ratios (approximately 1.0) as the normal-speaking control subjects. The dysphonic subjects with laryngeal pathology produced s/z ratios in excess of 1.4 ninety-five percent of the time. It appeared from these data that when an additive mass developed along the glottal margin, vocal fold approximation was less efficient. This decrement in ...

Many individuals seek my assistance for difficulty with paradoxical vocal fold motion, most commonly referred to as vocal cord dysfunction. This problem has been referred to by many names including inducible laryngeal obstruction. While many view this as a voice disorder, I believe it is a disorder of breathing and must be treated with knowledge of the entire respiratory system. Often misdiagnosed as asthma, common symptoms include shortness of breath, throat and or chest tightness and inability to take an adequate breath. Difficulty can occur in response to exercise, allergies, fumes, stress or for no apparent reason. Some individuals also struggle with habit cough and throat clearing. ...
Answer 4.1.1 The correct answer is E. Vocal cord dysfunction (VCD) is one of the most common asthma mimics. Patients with VCD present with hoarseness, coughing, dyspnea, and loud inspiratory wheezing/stridor, along with other symptoms mentioned above. Pulmonary function testing indicates airway obstruction due to an extrathoracic component. It appears that paradoxical inspiratory vocal cord adduction causes airflow restriction at the level of the larynx, resulting in a flattened inspiratory loop on flow-volume diagram. VCD presents a diagnostic challenge, and often leads to unnecessary treatment of asthma. In this patient, a β2-agonist was ineffective, even though she displays symptoms with exertion. This argues against answer A. The distinction between VCD and asthma may be less clear in other patients, since the two disorders sometimes coexist. The clinical history does not support the diagnoses of gastroesophageal reflux disease, musculoskeletal chest pain, or hyperventilation. ...
The ability to provide absolute calibrated measurement of the laryngeal structures during phonation is of paramount importance to voice science and clinical practice. Calibrated three-dimensional measurement could provide essential information for modeling purposes, for studying the developmental aspects of vocal fold vibration, for refining functional voice assessment and treatment outcomes evaluation, and for more accurate staging and grading of laryngeal disease. Recently, a laser-calibrated transnasal fiberoptic endoscope compatible with high-speed videoendoscopy (HSV) and capable of providing three-dimensional measurements was developed. The optical principle employed is to project a grid of 7 × 7 green laser points across the field of view (FOV) at an angle relative to the imaging axis, such that (after calibration) the position of each laser point within the FOV encodes the vertical distance from the tip of the endoscope to the laryngeal tissues. The purpose of this study was to develop ...
Jensens 18-hour procedure was followed by two months of rehabilitation. Her newly restored voice, while sounding hoarse at times, has improved significantly since the transplant as her nerves regenerate and she learns again how to speak. While the donor organ came from an accident victim, Jensens voice is her own and not that of the female donor. The transplant has allowed Jensen to smell and taste for the first time in years. She is in the process of relearning to swallow and hopes to soon be able to eat and drink normally again..

Standardized tests that assess functional performance for upper extremity (UE) strength and power are lacking. A functional performance test is an important tool in identifying strength, power, injury predisposition risk and readiness for return to activity following injury. The seated shot put test (SSPT) is a test of unilateral UE strength and power. The primary purpose of the present study is to determine normative test scores for the SSPT for a healthy high school aged population. A secondary purpose is to determine if any relationships exist between scores on the SSPT and arm length, body weight, sex and age. A sample of convenience testing only those within the high school population without UE pathology will be utilized.

Participants were given four warm-up throws before official distance thrown was recorded. An average of ...
Aphasia: Speech-language therapy (SLT) to maximize communication skills through verbalizations or compensatory means (eg, communication boards, augmentative communication) is standard practice. Utilization of melodic intonation to sing words may be useful. Review of literature tends to support effectiveness of SLT with more intensive therapy as possibly more effective than conventional SLT. Pharmacological interventions with catecholiminergic, dopaminergic, and acetylcholinergic agonists as well as piracetam and memantine may be effective although evidence is inconclusive.. Dysarthria: Management focuses on maximizing strength and coordination of oromotor musculature.

Vocal cord dysfunction (aka, paradoxical vocal cord motion, VCD, non-organic wheezing, etc) is a general term used to describe a situation when the vocal cords come together (or ADduct) when taking a breath in when normally they should go apart (or ABduct). The key thing to remember is that everything from the nose down into the lungs generally appears totally normal anatomically speaking; however, the voicebox is functionally abnormal.
Vocal cord dysfunction (VCD), also commonly known as paradoxical vocal fold motion, can be characterized as an abnormal adduction of the vocal cords during the respiratory cycle (especially during the inspiratory phase) that produces airflow obstruction at the level of the larynx. VCD frequently mimics persistent asthma and is often treated...

Hoarseness (dysphonia) is defined as an altered voice due to a laryngeal disorder.2 It is an important symptom of laryngeal disease presenting in general practice, and ranges from the very common, trivial, self-limiting condition of viral upper respiratory tract infection to a life-threatening disorder (see Table 57.1). It may be of sudden presentation lasting only a few days or develop gradually and persist for weeks or months. The cut-off point between acute and chronic hoarseness is three weeks duration, by which time most self-limiting conditions have resolved. Hoarseness pertains to harsh, raspy, gravelly or rough tones of voice rather than pitch or volume. Rarely, hoarseness can be a functional or deliberate symptom referred to as hysterical aphonia.3 In this condition, patients purposely hold the cords apart while speaking. ...

It is estimated that up to 50% of patients with voice disorders and 4-10% of patients seen in otolaryngology practice experience laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR). LPR has been implicated in the pathogenesis of numerous laryngeal disorders, including subglottic stenosis, laryngeal carcinoma, laryngeal contact ulcers, laryngospasm, and vocal cord nodules. In the pediatric population, it has been associated with asthma, sinusitis, and otitis media. Common symptoms include chronic and intermittent hoarseness, vocal fatigue, globus pharyngeus, cough, postnasal drip, chronic throat clearing, and dysphagia.. Like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), the etiology of LPR is linked to esophageal sphincter dysfunction. In GERD, the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) is involved, whereas in LPR, the pathology results from upper esophageal sphincter (UES) dysfunction. However, diagnosis of LPR is more challenging than that of GERD. The classic reflux-like symptoms of heartburn and regurgitation are often ...

Bulatovic R, Taneja R. In Response to Videolaryngoscopy as a new standard of care. Zaouter C, Calderon J, Hemmerling TM. Br J Anaesth. 2015. 114(2):181-183.. Dear sir,. We read with interest Dr. Zauters editorial on the evolving role of videolaryngoscopy in anesthestic care (1). Overall we do agree with the authors that videolaryngoscopes will and should be available freely in the foreseeable future. As anesthetists working in a teaching hospital, we already note that residents often choose these as their first-choice for laryngoscopy in anticipated difficult intubations.. However, with increasing availability of new technology such as this, we must acknowledge that trainees will progressively lose their skills with conventional laryngoscopy. This may have safety implications for patients needing anaesthesia in remote locations where videolaryngoscopy may not be the norm. Hence, our younger colleagues having to provide anaesthetic services in such settings may find themselves underprepared or ...

Stridor is a sign of upper airway obstruction. In children, laryngomalacia is the most common cause of chronic stridor, while croup is the most common cause of acute stridor. Generally, an inspiratory stridor suggests airway obstruction above the glottis while an expiratory stridor is indicative of obstruction in the lower trachea. A biphasic stridor suggests a glottic or subglottic lesion. Laryngeal lesions often result in voice changes. A child with extrinsic airway obstruction usually hyperextends the neck. The airway should be established immediately in children with severe respiratory distress. Treatment of stridor should be directed at the underlying cause.

Laryngocele is an abnormal dilatation of the laryngeal saccule filled with air. It may extend through the thyrohyoid membrane or into the airway. According to its relation to the thyrohyoid membrane, it has been classified as internal, external, or combined laryngocele. Symptoms are related to the size of the laryngocele. It may cause cough, hoarseness, stridor, sore throat and may present as a swelling on the neck. In many cases, it is asymptomatic. Laryngocele is a rare cause of infant and pediatric airway obstruction. Treatment options are endoscopic excision or marsupialization, and excision through a lateral thyrotomy or the thyrohyoid membrane approach. In this study, a pediatric case with an internal laryngocele was presented as a rare congenital laryngeal pathology. Literature was reviewed and characteristics of the disease were discussed. ...
Dear Dr. Cooper:. I have just celebrated my 85th birthday and as I sat around discussing the past with some of my friends, I was astounded at the number of people that have had a profound affect on my life, both good and bad. You, sir are one of the good ones. In all of the intervening years, I have never spoken to you, and thanked you enough for what you have done for me.. Let me recall my history with you. After visiting three eye, ear, and nose specialists, they all agreed on two things, that I have a contact ulcer of the vocal cords and that surgery was the only way out. No guarantee that it wouldnt return, but that was the way to go.. Then my doctor came up with another specialist, a Dr. Rubin in Beverly Hills. I went to see him, in desperation. He confirmed the diagnosis of the other specialists and said the surgery is the only solution the medical profession has for cases like mine; however, I can recommend a speech therapist that has had a measure of success treating contact ulcers of ...
Laryngeal dystonia is a benign neurological condition affecting the larynx typically associated with voice or breathing disturbance
Stroboscopy by Gerhard Boehme; Manfred Gross at AbeBooks.co.uk - ISBN 10: 1861563841 - ISBN 13: 9781861563842 - Wiley-Blackwell - 2004 - Hardcover
Laryngomalacia is a congenital softening of the tissues of the larynx above the vocal cords and is the most common cause of noisy breathing in infancy.
Laryngoceles are uncommon, with an estimated incidence of 1 per 2.5 million people per year.5 Laryngoceles are unilateral 85% of the time, so bilateral laryngoceles are an especially rare occurrence.1 There is a strong male preponderance, with rates in men 5-7 times greater than rates in women.. Laryngoceles are classified as internal, external, or mixed. Internal laryngoceles stay within the confines of the thyrohyoid membrane, while external laryngoceles extend beyond the cartilaginous boundaries of the larynx and maintain only a thin connection to their site of origin. Combined or mixed laryngoceles have substantial components both inside and outside the larynx.. The term laryngocele is generally used if the mass is air-filled or has an air-fluid level demonstrating an open communication with the laryngeal lumen. The term saccular cyst is used by some authors to refer to masses that are completely filled with fluid or mucous and thus presumably lack such a communication. Other authors use ...
Yes, you can trust that, but only insofar as it applies to YOU because so much about theremins has to do with personal taste and preference. - Coalport. A valid comment, in terms of subjective matters - what one likes or dislikes in particular... But from a technical perspective (as you often rightly declare with regard to pitch) a player is either on key or of key and the degree of error is measurable - How much such error bothers the player or listener, and whether this error ever imparts something positive would, as I see it, fall into subjective -. And this is where I sometimes have difficulty - Yes, I have my subjective preferences.. But my test instruments shouldnt have! ;-) .. Even if I dont notice drift (and I do) my data logger notices it, and tells me exactly what it hears..

At resting levels of ventilation, the main airway can be reduced to a diameter of 3 mm or so before respiratory distress and stridor occur. Little more narrowing is required to precipitate complete asphyxia, hence when upper airways obstruction is suspected, assessment of severity, diagnosis, and treatment is a medical emergency....
