Objective: To identify practice patterns regarding human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination efforts and vaccination rates in context of head and neck cancer prevention, identify barriers to vaccination, and identify gaps in knowledge regarding the link between HPV and head and neck cancer in the pediatrician population. Study design/methods: A 27-...
Article
Background: Recently, there has been mounting evidence suggesting the efficacy of steroid-eluting stents (SES) for management of chronic rhinosinusitis after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). This meta-analysis serves to evaluate the efficacy of SES in improving postoperative outcomes after ESS. Methods: A systematic literature search was performe...
Article
Objectives To review the literature regarding the use of intracranial imaging as a screening tool for idiopathic olfactory loss (IOL) and to review the incidence of identifying a sinonasal or intracranial neoplasm as a result of intracranial imaging. Methods A systematic review of published English-language literature was performed using PubMed, O...
Article
Introduction Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) and functional nasal airway obstruction are common but distinct medical problems which affect quality of life. In certain instances, patients often benefit from concomitant functional septorhinoplasty, or elect for cosmetic rhinoplasty, in addition to functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) and prefer co...

Objective Pituitary adenomas in the pediatric population are extremely rare, resulting in limited information in the literature on these patients. In this study, data from the National Cancer Database (NCDB) to compare pituitary adenoma clinical presentations, treatment management patterns, and overall survival between pediatric and adult patients....
Article
Objectives: The use of video recording is commonplace in rhinology given the increased use of endoscopes when evaluating patients in the office and the operating room and for its educational potential. This study aimed to determine the quality of publicly available endoscopic videos in rhinology. Methods: A video search was performed on YouTube...
Article
Pituitary adenoma is one of the three most common neoplasms described in multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1), and patients with pituitary adenoma occupies 30‐50% of those with MEN1‐related tumor. Mixed gangliocytoma–pituitary adenoma (MGPA) is a rare clinical entity in which gangliomatous cells are intermixed with adenomatous cells. This tum...
Article
Objectives/Hypothesis The objective of this study is to evaluate the impact of patient and surgical factors, including approach and reconstruction type, on postoperative nausea and vomiting episodes following endoscopic skull base surgery. Study Design Retrospective review. Methods We performed a retrospective chart review from July 2018 to Augus...

Full-text available
A retrospective review identified all patients undergoing endoscopic skull base surgery at a tertiary academic skull base surgery program. 104 patients from July 2018 through August 2020 who underwent endoscopic skull base surgery were identified. Those with LD placement for aiding in suprasellar dissection and/or for CSF diversion following skull...
Article
We describe the case of a 40-year-old male presenting with an enlarging left facial and temporal chondrosarcoma centered on the left mandibular coronoid process resulting in pathologic fractures of the zygomatic arch and focal erosion of the temporal bone. The patient underwent surgical resection via a combined hemicoronal and parotidectomy approac...
Article
Background and Importance: Cavernous hemangiomas are benign vascular tumors derived from endothelial cells most commonly found in the oropharynx and larynx. Few cases have been reported in the parapharyngeal space (PPS). We report a rare case of cavernous hemangioma originating in the PPS resected endoscopically via an endonasal transsphenoidal app...
Article
Background: Retinoid products are becoming increasingly popular due to their efficacy and mild side effect profile. A few cases of epidermal stripping with wax depilation have been reported, but all have been associated with oral retinoid use. Aims: We aim to increase awareness of this adverse effect. Methods: N/A Results: N/A Conclusion: While...
Article
Purpose: To compare the acromioclavicular (AC) joint stability of single-bundle (SB), double-bundle with an anterolateral limb (DBa), double-bundle with a posterolateral limb (DBp), and triple-bundle (TB) coracoclavicular (CC) ligament reconstructions using cortical fixation buttons with suture tapes. Methods: Eight cadaveric shoulders were used...
Article
Understanding the molecular pathways that enhance β-cell proliferation, survival, and insulin secretion may be useful to improve treatments for diabetes. Nkx6.1 induces proliferation through the Nr4a nuclear receptors, and improves insulin secretion and survival through the peptide hormone VGF. Here we demonstrate that Nkx6.1-mediated upregulation...
