Facial neural edema is the pathophysiological base of Bell'spalsy. The middle cranial fossa approach is used to relieve the oppression of facial nerve at its most narrow course in the facial canal. In this research, the authors mainly discussed the internal auditory canal segment of facial nerve, completely in the shadow of the bony structure, which is inconvenient for ...

PURPOSE: Investigate the vocal and laryngopharyngeal symptoms, vocal quality, Voice Activity and Participation Profile (VAPP), and vocal acoustic and auditory-perceptual characteristics from evangelical pastors comparing with the same aspects of nonprofessional voice men.
METHOD: Sixty professionally active male subjects were divided into two groups: 30 pastors and 30 nonprofessional voice men, with ages between 24 and 59 years old. Participants answered the Screening Index for Voice Disorder (SIVD) questionnaire and the VAPP, as well as an auditory-perceptual and acoustic evaluation of the voice.
RESULTS: The evangelical pastors reported problems with throat clearing, cough with secretion, secretion/phlegm in the throat, and strained speech. Although there were no differences in vocal characteristics between pastors and nonprofessional voice men, the score for effects on the job and the total score of the VAPP were higher for the evangelical pastors.
CONCLUSION: Regarding the vocal characteristics, evangelical pastors do not present distinct vocal alterations in the auditory-perceptual and acoustic parameters analyzed when compared with nonprofessional voice men. However, they show laryngopharyngeal symptoms when speaking and perceive that some vocal alterations limit their professional performance but do not prevent the practice of this profession.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to examine whether changes in respiratory patterns occurred in response to volitional changes in glottal configuration.
METHODS: Twelve vocally healthy participants read a passage while wearing the Inductotrace respiratory inductive plethysmograph, which measures the excursions of the rib cage and abdomen. Participants read the passage 5 times in a typical speaking voice (baseline phase), 10 times in an experimental voice, which was similar to a breathy vocal quality (experimental phase), and 5 times again in a typical speaking voice (return phase). Kinematic estimates of lung volume (LV) initiation, LV termination, and LV excursion were collected for each speech breath.
RESULTS: Participants spoke with larger LV excursions during the experimental phase, characterized by increased LV initiation and decreased LV termination compared with the baseline phase.
CONCLUSION: In response to volitional changes in glottal configuration, healthy individuals spoke with increased LV excursion. They both responded to changes (decreasing LV termination) and planned for more efficient future utterances (increasing LV initiation) during the experimental phase. This study demonstrated that respiratory patterns change in response to changes in glottal configuration; future work will examine these patterns in individuals with voice disorders.
Abstract: Sphenoorbital meningiomas (SOMs) are slow-growing tumors that originate from the sphenoidal wing and are associated with visual deterioration, extrinsic ocular movement disorders, and proptosis caused by hyperostosis of the lateral wall of the orbit. In some cases, the intracranial component is quite small or "en plaque," and the majority of the symptoms arise from adjacent hyperostosis.

Here, we report a novel missense variant in the fifth zinc finger domain of GLI3 (c.1826G>A; p.(Cys609Tyr)) initially identified in a proband with preaxial polydactyly type IV, developmental delay, sensorineural hearingloss, skeletal, and genitourinary anomalies. Additional family members exhibited various digital anomalies such as preaxial polydactyly, syndactyly, and postaxial polydactyly either in isolation or combined.
