Laryngeal Injury in a Male Lacrosse Player: A Case for Prevention.

Lacrosse has become increasingly popular among US children and teens. Because a lacrosse ball can serve as a projectile, neck injuries, although uncommon, can cause a severe and long-lasting injury. We report the case of a 16-year-old adolescent who experienced direct neck trauma while playing lacrosse. The clinical presentation, treatment strategies, and intubation considerations are reviewed. Finally, a call to action to prevent future, similar injuries is discussed.

Health Literacy.

Health literacy has been shown to affect outcomes in a number of medical conditions. Despite the complexity of care that is often required among otolaryngology patients, the literature on health literacy in this field is sparse. Otolaryngologists need to be aware of issues related to health literacy due to the changing health care environment. The increased complexity of medical care, the greater involvement of patients in shared decision making, and the higher administrative burden on patients have increas...

AHNS series: Do you know your guidelines? Management of head and neck cancer in the era of human papillomavirus: Educating our patients on human papillomavirus.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) has changed the face of head and neck cancer over the past 2 decades. No longer is this solely a disease of older patients with a history of heavy tobacco and alcohol use. Patients with HPV-related head and neck cancers tend to be younger, healthier, and have an improved prognosis, compared with those with HPV-negative tumors. As more patients are diagnosed with HPV-related head and neck cancer, physicians have important topics to consider. These include prevalence, transmission, ...
