The last step prior to okaying extubation is to estimate patency of the glottic
Treatment of early stage squamous-cell carcinoma of the glottic
larynx: endoscopic surgery or cricohyoidoepiglottopexy versus radiotherapy.
Even when the supraglottic structures are digitally identified, it can be difficult to direct the unassisted tracheal tube through the glottic
Thirty-four chapters are devoted to pediatric otolaryngology with topics including developmental anatomy, anesthesia, cleft lip and palate, glottic
and subglottic stenosis, voice disorders, and reconstruction surgery of the ear.
Indirect laryngoscopy revealed the presence of a submucosal glottic
and supraglottic mass, with partial occlusion of the laryngeal lumen.
Chapter Fifteen, "Post Radiotherapy Voice Quality" by Eva Carlson, reviews the effect of radiotherapy on voice quality in patients with early glottic
Conditions that contribute to aspiration risk in SCI are dysphagia, ineffective or absent cough function, glottic
or tracheal stenosis, and gastroesophageal reflux.
By setting forth criteria for a clearer apprehension of the graphic qualities of writing and by incorporating into his study a wealth of anthropological and historical information relative to writing practices in cultures other than our own, Harris has succeeded in opening the way to a broad view of writing that embraces the phenomenon, not only in its glottic
forms, but also in its mathematical, musical, and other forms, while at the same time making possible the confrontation of writing with other forms of graphic expression.
For cancers of the oropharynx, hypopharynx, and glottic
and supraglottic larynx, cisplatin (Platinol[R] - AQ, Bristol-Myers Squibb) is now listed as the preferred agent if using the treatment option of concurrent systemic/radiation therapy.
The LAR is a sensorimotor reflex that starts with a peripheral afferent laryngeal sensation that travels to the brainstem and stimulates efferent vagal motor responses to cause glottic
closure and airway protection during swallowing.
The C-MAC was then gently introduced with endotracheal tube in situ and the glottic
opening and vocal cords were easily visualised on the monitor by both anaesthetist and surgeon (Figure 1A).
Comparison of MBS and FEES/FEEST studies Only MBS can * Visualise bolus during oral and oesophageal stages * Assess completeness of tongue base retraction * Assess completeness of upper oesophageal sphincter opening * Assess completeness of hyo-laryngeal elevation and protraction * Assess extent of aspiration Only FEES/FEEST can * Visualise secretions * Directly assess sensation * Identify mucosal anomalies * Identify the effect of altered anatomy on bolus flow, glottic
closure and airway protection * View location of bolus within hypopharynx Table IV.
Timing of glottic
closure during swallowing: A combined electromyographic and endoscopic analysis.
Impact of laryngeal paralysis and its treatment on the glottic
aperture and upper airway flow characteristics during exercise.
reported that 96% of their patients with glottic
tumours and 44% of patients with supraglottic tumours presented with hoarseness.
