Among 24-hour dual-probe pH testing, esophageal high-resolution manometry, esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), and contrast videofluoroscopy (esophagram), which modality is most able to identify the common abnormalities seen in patients with globus sensation? Bottom line: Esophageal high-resolution manometry testing identified the greatest proportion of common abnormalities seen in patients with globus sensation. BACKGROUND: Globus sensation has long been […]

The voice and airway presentation of patients with FMS, IBS, and/or CFS suggests that these disorders may be different clinical manifestations of a shared pathophysiology.
A look at whether a prescription of voice rest has a meaningful impact on vocal outcomes following CO2 laser resection of superficial
vocal cord lesions.
A look at to what extent mental health distress precedes or follows voice disorder diagnoses.

Laryngoscopic and microscopic appearance of vascular stippling could inform clinicians on diagnostic sampling of suspicious laryngeal lesions that reduce delay in diagnosis.
The Laryngoscore is reliable for detecting difficult laryngeal exposure preoperatively, but each institution should find its own best cutoff value based on the specific instruments available locally.
Epiglottitis is still a significant pathology seen in EDs, is stable over the study period, and carries a mortality risk.
