A Message from the Chairman
Watch as Maggie, a 14-year old girl with congenital deafness, hears sound for the first time with an auditory brainstem implant (ABI). Drs Maroun Semaan and Gail Murray discuss her unique case.
Watch a surgical procedure performed by Dr. Mark Weidenbecker on a 12-year-old tracheostomy-dependent child presented with severe posterior glottic stenosis and vocal cord joint ankylosis due to intubation injury. He underwent cricoarytenoid joint release with interpositional piriform sinus mucosal flap reconstruction and was able to be decannulated shortly thereafter with normal laryngeal function.
New national EVA patient registry will clarify prognosis, identify risk factors for EVA-related hearing loss. Dr. Todd Otteson presents the goal of the patient registry generated at Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital for patients with hearing loss due to EVA will provide valuable clinical information regarding prognosis, activities that may cause progression of hearing loss, and the efficacy of any treatments.
A rare surgery results in great outcomes for a young NF-2 patient. Endoscopic techniques have allowed for minimal morbidity with maximal access for benign and malignant neoplasms of the sinuses and skull base. Dr. Kenneth Rodriquez is employing this technology today.
Dr Louis DeJoseph, class of 2003, has been appointed the 2017 Program Co-Chair for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). Congratulations!
