New study uses machine learning on ultrasound images of thyroid nodules to predict risk of malignancy

What is the extent of airway improvement and voice quality in patients with bilateral vocal fold paralysis (BVFP) who underwent selective laryngeal reinnervation surgery?
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.
Patient Reflux Symptom Index (RSI) and Voice Handicap Index (VHI-10) scores improved following voice therapy.
Voice therapy alone did not result in significant short-term changes for patients with vocal fold polyps (VFPs).
Nimodipine significantly increased the odds of vocal fold motion and facial recovery after injury.
