Presidential keynote address and new research highlights from the American Society of Pediatric Otolaryngology meeting
Date:4/24/2011

cently there were reports of cases successfully managed endoscopically by laser incision of the mucosa and a two layers endoscopic closure. This technique allows avoidance of post operative intubation or tracheotomy.

  • Type IV cleft may be repaired by a lateral pharyngo-esophagotomy and or thoracotomy or an anterior laryngofissure and sternotomy, with the use of cardiopulmonary bypass or ECMO.

    Overall, the need for a revision procedure for partial failure is increased by the severity of the cleft.


    Plenary Session Presentation Complications of Otitis Media: The Possible Impact From Pneumoncoccal Vaccine And American Academy Of Pediatrics Guidelines

    Presenter: Whitney Halgrimson, BA, BS
    Date: Sunday, May 1, 2011
    Time: 11:11 11:18

    Chicago, IL In the last decade, important changes that could impact the development and management of acute otitis media (AOM) were introduced: the heptavalent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine introduced in 2000 and the American Academy of Pediatrics amended treatment guidelines of AOM published in 2004. The goal of the study was to characterize the impact of these practice changes on the development of acute mastoiditis complicating AOM.

    "The incidence of mastoiditis changed significantly during the past decade, characterized by an initial decrease, a plateau phase, and a subsequent rise," said study author Whitney Halgrimson, BA, BS. "Further investigation is needed to determine the relative contributions of pneumococcal conjugate vaccination, deferred antibiotic treatment of AOM, or other variables to this triphasic pattern."

    Two databases were reviewed to establish the frequency of mastoiditis, the common variable for all AOM complications. State Hospital Association (SHA) inpatient records (2001-2008) and a retrospective chart review (2001-2008) on acute mastoiditis undertaken at a tertiary children's hospital (TCH) formed the data sources.
