Recent Advances in Pediatric Otolaryngology

Description

Ear, nose, and throat problems comprise a significant portion of patient visits to the pediatricians' office, urgent care facilities, emergency rooms, and children's hospitals. Since its beginnings in the 1970s, the specialty of pediatric otolaryngology has developed significantly and even more so in the last five to ten years. The aim of this special issue is to offer our pediatrician colleagues an opportunity to learn about recent advances in both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are now available to assist in the care of children with ear, nose, and throat disorders.

We seek original clinical research and review articles from all areas of pediatric otolaryngology such as ear disease and hearing loss, sinonasal disorders, adenotonsillar diseases, airway issues, voice problems, head and neck masses, and infectious diseases of the head and neck. Submitted manuscripts would emphasize how methods of diagnosis have improved for certain conditions, how existing surgical procedures have been modified to be less invasive and better tolerated, and finally how new technology and operations allow clinicians to treat otolaryngologic disorders that were without treatment in the past. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Implantable hearing devices such as the bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA), middle-ear implant, and the auditory brainstem implant (ABI)
  • Balloon sinuplasty for chronic sinusitis
  • Use of image-guidance systems for sinus surgery
  • Sleep endoscopy to determine specific areas of airway obstruction
  • Tonsil reduction instead of tonsillectomy for upper airway obstruction due to tonsillar hypertrophy
  • Turbinate reduction for nasal obstruction
  • Airway surgery for the fetus and neonates in ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) procedures
  • Videostroboscopy in children
  • Sialoendoscopy for chronic salivary gland infections
  • Use of propranolol for hemangiomas
  • Sclerotherapy for lymphatic malformations

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijped/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
