Importance  Sinonasal disease and, specifically, nasal polyps, occur frequently in children with cystic fibrosis (CF). As survival rates have improved, it has become imperative that otolaryngologists become involved in the care of patients with CF to provide appropriate medical and surgical interventions for sinonasal disease. Despite significant ...

Importance  Laryngotracheal stenosis (LTS) lacks an ideal animal model to study its unique wound-healing pathophysiology and the effect of interventions.

Objective  To present an in vivo, in situ mouse model of LTS that can be used to investigate its pathophysiology, mechanisms, and interventions for treatment.

Design, ...

Importance  Chemoradiation therapy has become increasingly popular in the treatment of advanced laryngeal cancer as part of an organ preservation protocol. However, several studies have reported a decline in survival, possibly attributable to the increased use of radiation and chemoradiation therapy.

Objective  To evaluate survival outcomes ...

Importance  More than half of children with bilateral vocal fold paralysis require a tracheostomy for airway management. We report an innovative, minimally invasive approach consisting of onabotulinum toxin A injection into the cricothyroid muscles.

Observations  Onabotulinum toxin A was injected under direct vision into the cricothyroid ...
