Outcome of resection of infratemporal fossa tumors.
We investigated the outcome of surgical management of these tumors. We conducted a retrospective review of a craniofacial approach to resection of infratemporal fossa tumors from 1992 to 2008 in a cancer center. Forty-three patients underwent resection of a infratemporal fossa tumors (68% men). Medi...
Combined transoral robotic surgery and endoscopic endonasal approach for the resection of extensive malignancies of the skull base.
We then applied these techniques clinically. EEA was performed to provide a detailed dissection of the infratemporal fossa, nasopharynx, posterior skull base (clivus), and craniovertebral junction. Using TORS, we dissected the parapharyngeal space, infratemporal fossa, and nasopharynx below the eust...
Transoral robotic total laryngectomy: Report of 3 cases.
We aim to discuss the potential role of TORS in patients requiring total laryngectomy (TL). Three patients underwent TORS-assisted narrow-field TL. Relative data on preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative management were collated including postoperative complications. We present 3 cases of t...
Validated swallowing and nutrition guidelines for patients with head and neck cancer: identification of high-risk patients for proactive gas...
The "Swallowing and Nutrition Guidelines for Patients with Head and Neck Cancer" were developed to guide early identification and management of dysphagia and nutritional risk before, during, and after cancer treatment. The purpose of this study was to validate these guidelines. Patients attending a...
Potential therapeutic target and independent prognostic marker of TROP2 in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma.
The human trophoblastic cell surface antigen 2 (TROP2) gene is associated with the development of malignancies, but its expression in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and its relationship with clinical characteristics of the disease remain undetermined. Expression of TROP2 protein was detecte...
First bite syndrome: case report of 3 patients treated with botulinum toxin and review of other treatment modalities.
First bite syndrome is an unexpected yet relatively common complication of surgeries involving the parapharyngeal space. It can have a significant effect on both the quality of life and physical health of affected patients. This study presents 3 cases of first bite syndrome treated with botulinum to...
Prevalence and predictive role of p16 and epidermal growth factor receptor in surgically treated oropharyngeal and oral cavity cancer.
The purpose of this study was to describe the relationship of p16 and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expression with survival in surgically treated patients who had oropharyngeal or oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Tissue from 36 patients with oropharyngeal SCC and 49 patients wit...
International head and neck cancer epidemiology consortium: Update No. 11.
Impact of intraoral stent on the side effects of radiotherapy for oral cancer.
The intraoral stent is a mouth-opening device which may be used during head and neck cancer radiotherapy with the intention of preventing unnecessary irradiation in normal adjacent tissue. The use of this device during intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) has not been reported in the literat...
Hypopharyngeal paraganglioma: case report and review of the literature.
We discuss the case of a hypopharyngeal paraganglioma and review the literature concerning laryngopharyngeal paragangliomas. We present the case of a woman with 2 months of dysphagia and hoarseness that was found to have a hypopharyngeal paraganglioma. The patient underwent embolization and resectio...
