This randomized clinical trial of patients undergoing elective thyroidectomy found no evidence that smaller endotracheal tube size has an effect on postoperative vocal outcomes, incidence of laryngeal trauma, or pain scores.
This cross-sectional study of health state utility measurements in patients with head and neck cancer suggests that indirect methods of utility derivation discriminate differences in this population and that more comprehensive utility derivation questionnaires are needed.
Results of this retrospective case series suggest that most children undergoing supraglottoplasty do not require an intensive care unit stay postoperatively.
This medical record review finds that expanded polytetrafluoroethylene implants can be used with a low risk of complications in functional nasal surgery for traumatic nasal deformities.

This case series review found that patients with bilateral vocal fold immobility who underwent posterior cordotomy had significantly reduced perceptual voice outcomes with unchanged voice quality of life.
This meta-analysis determined that the association between obstructive sleep apnea and spontaneous CSF leaks as demonstrated by retrospective studies is confounded by heterogeneous patient characteristics.
This immunohistochemical analysis describes the expression of sodium iodide symporter in tissue samples of adenoid cystic carcinoma.
This analysis of medical records describes the testing necessary to classify nonchordomatous clival lesions and discusses the difficulty in obtaining a histologic diagnosis.
This observational study uses muscle stimulation of ex vivo perfused human larynges to evaluate human voice production.
