The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 29 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books.
BioPortfolio aims to cross reference relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with selected topics - speciality.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
This study explores Islamic religious officials' voice use, disorders, and treatment methods by comparing the officials with teachers, the largest group of voice professionals.
To demonstrate the surgical efficacy of septoplasty using acoustic rhinometry (AR) and anterior rhinomanometry (ARM) and to evaluate the effect of septoplasty on voice performance through subjective voice analysis methods.
The present study aimed at observing the possible differential effects of eight semioccluded vocal tract exercises (SOVTE) on vocal economy measured by the Quasi Output Cost Ratio (QOCR).
To investigate patient-level predictors of initiation of voice therapy for paradoxical vocal fold motion disorder (PVFM).
To determine the consistency and accuracy of preoperative diagnosis in the voice clinic with intraoperative diagnosis and to suggest a standardized laryngeal examination protocol in the UK that is supported by evidence-based findings.
Radiation treatment for laryngeal cancer has been shown to cause tissue changes to the vocal folds, which can result in degradation of voice. Our objective in this study was to investigate changes in perceptual, acoustic, and patient-reported outcomes over an extended period of follow-up after radiation.
Neck muscle dysfunction has been considered as risk factor or consequence of voice disorders. This study investigates the correlation between neck and voice-related subjective symptoms in patients with voice disorders.
Computer analysis of voice recordings is an integral part of the evaluation and management of voice disorders. In many practices, voice samples are taken in rooms that are not sound attenuated and/or sound-proofed; further, the technology used is rarely consistent. This will likely affect the recordings, and therefore, their analyses.
The study assessed 30 nonprofessional singers to evaluate the effects of vocal tract shape adjustment via increased resonance toward an externally applied sinusoidal frequency of 900 Hz without phonation. The amplification of the sound wave was used as biofeedback signal and the intensity and the formant position of the basic vowels /a/, /e/, /i/, /o/, and /u/ were compared before and after a vocal tract adjustment period. After the adjustment period, the intensities for all vowels increased and the measure...
Laryngostroboscopic Exploration of Rough Vocal Effects in Singing and their Statistical Recognizability: An Anatomical and Physiological Description and Visual Recognizability Study of Distortion, Growl, Rattle, and Grunt using laryngostroboscopic Imaging and Panel Assessment.
To study vocal effects in singing from the pedagogical method complete vocal technique as related to specific and discrete supraglottic structures and activities by means of laryngostroboscopic imaging and panel testing.
The present study aimed at measuring the smoothed and non-smoothed cepstral peak prominence (CPPS and CPP) in teachers who considered themselves to have normal voice but some of them had laryngeal pathology. The changes of CPP, CPPS, sound pressure level (SPL) and perceptual ratings with different voice tasks were investigated and the influence of vocal pathology on these measures was studied.
In this study, we attempted to assess the phonation and articulation subsystem changes in patients with multiple sclerosis compared to healthy individuals using Dysphonia Severity Index and Formant Centralization Ratio with the aim of evaluating the correlation between these two indexes with neurological status.
The etiology of laryngeal granuloma can typically be attributed to endotracheal intubation, vocal abuse, or gastroesophageal reflux disease. There is a strong male predominance, except in cases due to intubation, where incidence is higher in women. We report a case of spontaneous development of multiple granulomas in a female with no history of intubation who presented with hoarseness and massive bilateral supraglottic masses obscuring her glottis. The disparity between the massive lesions and asymptomatic ...
The purpose of this study was to examine the psychometric properties of the German translation of the Transsexual Voice Questionnaire for Male-to-Female Transsexuals (TVQ), an instrument assessing the voice-related quality of life (VrQoL) in trans women.
Functional dysphonia refers to a voice disorder without organic laryngeal disease. In this article, the clinical features and therapeutic strategies of functional dysphonia in children were investigated.
Medialization thyroplasty (MT) has become a prominent method for treating glottal insufficiency. This study aimed to visualize the biomechanical influence of a medialization implant on arytenoid cartilage, particularly on the length and level of paralyzation in the vocal fold, in patients with unilateral vocal fold paralysis.
Relative fundamental frequency, a measure of the muscular and aerodynamic influences of voicing offset and onset of vowel-voiceless consonant-vowel production, has been known to reflect conditions of vocal hyperfunction and serves as a measure that might be influenced by transient emotional states. Twenty-six vocally healthy females underwent aversive, neutral, and positive emotional induction while saying /afa/. Results show that individuals had a steeper fundamental frequency decline on the 10 cycles of o...
The purpose of this study was to examine measures of phonation quotient (PQ) in two groups of persons with voice disorders using three different aerodynamic instruments representing low-tech and high-tech options.
Allergies are among the most common chronic conditions worldwide affecting 10%-30% of adult individuals and 40% of children. Phonation can be affected by different allergic conditions in various ways. The role of allergy in phonation has been under-researched and poorly understood and the respective literature is poor. Several studies have investigated the role of certain allergic diseases in phonation. In this review, we tried to include all allergic conditions that can affect voice production.
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of chant training both on the morphologic structure of the lateral thyrohyoid ligament (LTL) and on the acoustic characteristics of the voice.
Transgender women often seek to feminize their voice so that it becomes congruent with their gender identity. Many receive voice therapy (VT) with good results. Some also need pitch-raising surgery. The purpose of this study was to investigate long-term effects and to compare outcomes between cricothyroid approximation (CTA) and glottoplasty (GP).
The present study was conducted to study the efficacy of intralesional steroid (ILS) injection in small benign vocal fold lesions and compare the outcomes with microlaryngeal surgery in terms of improvement in symptoms and reduction in lesion size.
This study explored trans women's experience and awareness of their vocal communication and voice use within sporting environments.
Crying is a multimodal, dynamic behavior and the first way to communicate. Early identification of hearing impairment is critical for prevention of speech and language disorders. The present study aimed to assess the acoustic features of infant's cry signals to find possible differences between two groups including hearing-impaired (HI) infants and normal hearing (NH) control.
