Tracheal stenosis after placement of percutaneous dilational tracheotomyLaryngoscope | Feb 2008;118(2):222-227
Authors: Christenson TE, Artz GJ, Goldhammer JE, Spiegel JR, Boon MS.
OBJECTIVES: Percutaneous dilational tracheotomy procedures have been used successfully as a bedside alternative to open surgical tracheotomy. At our institution, we have seen patients with tracheal injuries following this procedure. In this paper, we review those cases to demonstrate that tracheal stenosis is a potential long-term complication of percutaneous dilational tracheotomy.

Approximately 6 weeks after an uncomplicated tonsillectomy for chronic tonsillitis, a 37-year-old woman presented to our emergency department with complaints of odynophagia and cervical pain persistent since surgery. Computed tomographic and magnetic resonance imaging revealed cervical spinal osteomyelitis with epidural abscess at C2 to 3. The patient underwent treatment with intravenous antibiotics, operative debridement, and cervical spinal stabilization. She recovered with no neurologic deficit.

Thyroplasty revisions: Frequency and predictive factorsJournal of Voice | Sep 2003;17(3):442-448
Authors: Anderson TD, Spiegel JR, Sataloff RT.
Thyroplasty is the most commonly performed type of laryngeal framework surgery, and the surgical indications are gradually being expanded. Although many reports have described thyroplasty results and rates of success, no study has attempted to determine predictors of the need for revisions or other secondary surgical procedures.
Gore-Tex medialization thyroplasty: Objective and subjective evaluationJournal of Voice | 2003;17(1):88-95
Authors: Selber J, Sataloff R, Spiegel J, Heman-Ackah Y.
Summary: Management of vocal fold paralysis and paresis continues to give rise to controversy and the use of numerous surgical techniques. The senior authors' (RTS, JRS) initial experience with fourteen patients using Gore-Tex Medialization Thyroplasty suggests that this technique has value. Evaluation included pre- and postoperative videostroboscopic assessment, aerodynamic measures, acoustic analysis, phonatory analysis, psychoacoustic evaluation, and patient self-evaluation. Stroboscopic and perceptual assessments were blinded. Statistical analysis supports the efficacy of this technique.
