    Title Parental Satisfaction with Anesthesia Without Intravenous Access for Myringotomy.
    Date October 2004
    Journal Archives of Otolaryngology--head & Neck Surgery

    OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of intravenous (i.v.) access in children undergoing bilateral myringotomy with pressure-equalizing tube placement. DESIGN: One hundred healthy children were enrolled in this randomized controlled study. One group received i.v. access; the other group did not. Anesthesia in both groups was induced through a mask and maintained with oxygen, nitrous oxide, and sevoflurane. Spontaneous ventilation was maintained. All children received fentanyl, 1 microg/kg intramuscularly. Children with i.v. access received 20 mL/kg of lactated Ringer's solution. Parents were telephoned the day after surgery to report on pain and vomiting, as well as their satisfaction with anesthesia. SETTING: Tertiary care children's hospital with all procedures performed by attending pediatric otolaryngologists and otolaryngology residents. Anesthesia was administered by a pediatric anesthesiologist and a trainee. RESULTS: The groups were similar in age, weight, and incidence of vomiting. Children with i.v. access spent more time than those without (mean +/- SD minutes) in the operating room (21 +/- 8 vs 17 +/- 7; P =.02), in phase 2 recovery (75 +/- 67 vs 51 +/- 24; P =.02), and in the hospital (119 +/- 67 vs 88 +/- 30; P =.005). These children also required more pain medication (31% vs 2%; P<.001) and had a lower parental satisfaction rate (28% vs 95%; P<.001). CONCLUSIONS: Intravenous access in otherwise healthy children undergoing myringotomy provided no added benefit. Children without i.v. access had reduced pain requirement and spent less time in the operating room, in phase 2 recovery, and in the hospital. Parental satisfaction, a clinically relevant outcome, was significantly greater for parents of children without i.v. access.

    Title Pediatric Total Tonsillectomy Using Coblation Compared to Conventional Electrosurgery: a Prospective, Controlled Single-blind Study.
    Date June 2004
    Journal Otolaryngology--head and Neck Surgery : Official Journal of American Academy of Otolaryngology-head and Neck Surgery

    OBJECTIVE: Postoperative recovery after tonsillectomy using Coblation excision (CES) was compared with conventional electrosurgery (ES). STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING: Patients aged 3 to 12 years from 3 clinical sites were randomly assigned and blinded to receive tonsillectomy using CES (n = 44) or ES (n = 45). RESULTS: Operative parameters did not differ between groups. Return to normal diet, activity, and pain-free status were similar, although fewer CES patients contacted the physician regarding postoperative complications (33% vs 54%; p = 0.081), experienced nausea (35% vs 62%, p = 0.013), or had localized site-specific swelling (p < 0.05) during the 2 weeks after surgery. In addition, CES children tended to discontinue prescription narcotics 1 day earlier than ES patients (7 vs 8 days, p = 0.071) and took one half as many daily doses. More CES than ES parents rated the postoperative experience as 'better than expected' (79% vs 60%, p = 0.055). CONCLUSION AND SIGNIFICANCE: Children who received CES tonsillectomy appeared to experience a better quality postoperative course, with no detriment to operative benefits of conventional electrosurgery.

    Title Congenital Cholesteatoma of the Tympanic Membrane.

    Title Phenylephrine and the Prevention of Postoperative Tympanostomy Tube Obstruction.
    Date November 1998
    Journal Archives of Otolaryngology--head & Neck Surgery

    OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy of phenylephrine hydrochloride, a topical vasoconstrictor, in preventing tympanostomy tube obstruction. DESIGN: Prospective, randomized, double-blind, controlled trial of patients undergoing myringotomy with tympanostomy tube insertion. SETTING: Academic, tertiary referral medical center. PATIENTS: Two hundred eight patients were enrolled in the study; 157 patients (310 ears) returned for postoperative evaluation. INTERVENTIONS: Myringotomy with tympanostomy tube insertion was performed in all ears: 139 control ears received ototopical antibiotics and 171 treatment ears received ototopical antibiotics plus topical phenylephrine. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Postoperative tympanostomy tube obstruction. RESULTS: The overall incidence of tympanostomy tube obstruction was 5.2%: 8.6% in the control group and 2.3% in the treatment group. The treatment group demonstrated an odds ratio of 0.25 (95% confidence interval, 0.08-0.78; P= .02). CONCLUSION: The use of phenylephrine following tympanostomy tube insertion greatly reduces the incidence of tube obstruction.

    Title Unilateral Conductive Hearing Loss Secondary to a High Jugular Bulb in a Pediatric Patient.
    Date September 1997
    Journal Ear, Nose, & Throat Journal

    A high jugular bulb is not an uncommon otologic anomaly. It may be noted as an incidental finding on physical exam, middle ear surgery, or computed tomography of the temporal bones. Frequently the patient is asymptomatic, but a high jugular bulb can occasionally cause tinnitus or conductive hearing loss. The case of a seven-year-old black male with unilateral conductive hearing loss secondary to a high jugular bulb is presented. The diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and management of a conductive hearing loss associated with a high jugular bulb are discussed.

    Title Large Mediastinal Mass Secondary to an Aortocoronary Saphenous Vein Bypass Graft Aneurysm.
    Date October 1991
    Journal The Annals of Thoracic Surgery

    A case of a 62-year-old man with a large mediastinal mass who had undergone aortocoronary bypass grafting 17 years earlier is presented. Computed tomography showed a 13-cm extrinsic cystic mass believed to represent a pericardial cyst or teratoma. Intraoperatively, the patient was noted to have an aneurysm of his right coronary artery bypass graft. We were able to find 4 other cases seen in this manner.
