TED Talk by Max Little on Parkinsons

Nice to see videos being used - here on a TED talk by Max Little on Parkinsons.

Fungal laryngitis from Flovent

I had seen her 3 months earlier for her tracheostomy tube which had been removed and she had completely normal vocal cords at that point. The swelling beneath her vocal cords is from the previous tracheostomy tube scar. She then developed hoarseness, which I would attribute to using a Flovent inhaler. She developed a fairly invasive fungal laryngitis. View with Pentax high definition endoscope.

Dave Palumbo

An interview by Dave Palumbo with James P. Thomas, M.D. on Heavy Muscle Radio discussing how to alter vocal pitch. The emphasis in the show was particularly on female bodybuilders who have had their pitch drop after exposure to androgenic steroids and the use of an office KTP laser to tighten and tune up the vocal cords.

David Zealear, Ph.D. 2012-09-11

The neurolaryngology study section had an interesting presentation on the treatment of bilateral recurrent laryngeal nerve injury (paralysis/paresis/synkinesis) chaired by Lucian Sulica and Stacy Halum. Speaker David Zealear, Ph.D. from Vanderbilt began by mentioning iatrogenic thyroidectomy as the number one etiology behind bilateral recurrent laryngeal nerve injury. He spoke about three of his research projects for dealing with this injury. AAO-HNS Meeting at the Washington Convention Center, Washington, DC - September 11, 2012

I have a request (September 2012) to film a documentary about vocal cord tuning. If you are a female or male, interested in raising your comfortable speaking pitch and would be willing to be filmed and interviewed, please contact Dr. Thomas at thomas@voicedoctor.net .

Granulomas are wound healing lesions. They occur as a result of trauma which denudes the mucosa and exposes the underlying tissue to the bacteria of the throat. They typically start off life as an ulceration and are associated with pain frequently. It is the type of pain that you might experience when you bite your tongue or cheek, so it has a sharp quality. The granuloma is a collection of capillaries which are hypertrophic.

Meeting Organizer Teemu Kinari

  I was able to attend the 9th Congress of the European Laryngologic Society held in Helsinki, Finland June 13-16, 2012. Meeting Organizers Teemu Kinarai and Heikki Rihkanen.   It was an excellent Congress with a great many new ideas. Helsinki, Finland was completely blue and sunny for the three nearly 24 hour sunlit days of the conference. Some of the sessions that stood out in my mind:
