OBJECTIVES: Antithrombotic therapies, comprised of both anticoagulant and antiplatelet agents, are routinely paused prior to endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) to reduce the risk of perioperative hemorrhage. At present, no clear guidelines exist to guide otolaryngologists on when to resume these agents after ESS. Our goal was to systematically review the existing literature related to this topic. METHODS: Following Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines, we systematically queried the PubMed, Embase, Ovid, Web of Science, Cochrane, and CINAHL databases to identify publications reporting on antithrombotic and antiplatelet therapy in the context of ESS...

BACKGROUND: The conventional measure of sleep fragmentation is via polysomnographic evaluation of sleep architecture. Adults with OSA have disruption in their sleep cycles and spend less time in deep sleep stages. However, there is no available evidence to suggest that this is also true for children and published results have been inconclusive. OBJECTIVE: To determine polysomnographic characteristics of sleep architecture in children with OSA and investigate effects relative to OSA severity...

OBJECTIVES: The management of idiopathic subglottic stenosis (iSGS) poses a clinical challenge due to high recurrence rates following both endoscopic and open approaches, often leading to tracheostomy. The activation of abnormal T-cells and cytokine pathways has been linked to iSGS pathogenesis. Autologous adipose tissue centrifugation yields lipoaspirate, offering optimal anti-inflammatory effects and biocompatibility widely utilized in various medical settings. This report presents the first 3 cases employing endoscopic dilation (ED) in combination with local lipoaspirate injection to address recurrent iSGS...

OBJECTIVE: Tongue-tie, which is also known as ankyloglossia, is a common condition where the lingual frenulum is unusually tight or short. While most literature investigates the impact of tongue-tie on breastfeeding, recent articles have examined its role in speech production in children. However, these have not previously been reviewed systematically. This study aims to determine the impact of tongue-tie on speech outcomes and assess whether frenectomy can improve speech function. METHODS: In this systematic review, we conducted a comprehensive search of PubMed/MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, Embase, and speechBITE to analyze primary studies investigating the impact of frenectomy for tongue-tie on speech outcomes...

OBJECTIVES: Chronic rhinosinusitis and related rhinologic disorders are common in routine otolaryngologic practice. Common presenting symptoms include nasal obstruction, facial pain, facial pressure, headache, and a subjective feeling of the face feeling "swollen," a perceptual distortion. No validated scale exists to assess facial pain in addition to perceptual distortion or headache. The objective was to develop a novel scale for assessment of facial symptoms experienced by patients presenting for rhinologic evaluation...
