BACKGROUND The objective was to assess the association of mental health disorders with in-hospital complication and mortality rates in patients undergoing head and neck cancer surgery. METHODS In this exploratory retrospective study, the Nationwide Inpatient Sample was queried from 2003 to 2014 for all patients with a diagnosis of head and neck cancer who underwent surgery. Univariate cross-tabulation, logistic regression, and propensity score matching (PSM) were used to compare demographics, pr...

BACKGROUND Patients with oropharyngeal cancer who undergo transoral robotic surgery (TORS) and have high-risk features generally receive adjuvant chemoradiotherapy or trimodality therapy (TMT). The notion that TMT leads to high toxicity is largely based on studies that included human papilloma virus (HPV)-negative cancers and/or nonrobotic surgery; we sought to describe outcomes in HPV-associated oropharyngeal squamous cell cancer (HPV + OPSCC) undergoing TORS-TMT. METHODS In consecutive patient...

BACKGROUND Surgery with adjuvant radiotherapy is the accepted standard for treatment of advanced oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma (OCSCC); however, alternative evidence suggests that definitive (chemo)radiotherapy may have similar outcomes. METHODS Systematic review was performed to assess the therapeutic value of radiotherapy or chemoradiotherapy as a primary modality for treating OCSCC. Meta-analysis of outcomes was performed between articles comparing radiotherapy and primary surgical trea...

Lesions arising from the upper parapharyngeal space (UPPS) often involved the jugular foramen region (JFR), occasionally extending into the posterior cranial fossa. This study aims to investigate the surgical anatomy of the JFR and UPPS from the perspective of an expanded endoscopic approach (EEA), tracing the lower cranial nerves from their extracranial foramina to the UPPS. Six cadaveric specimens (12 sides) underwent a transpterygoid EEA to expose the JFR and UPPS. Distances from the medial p...

BACKGROUND Management of hypopharynx cancer is often extrapolated from larynx cancer. This report analyses treatment patterns and survival limited to hypopharynx cancer using the National Cancer Database (NCDB). METHODS There are 9314 patients diagnosed with hypopharynx cancer between 2004 and 2016. The association between treatment modality and survival was analyzed using Kaplan-Meier survival curves and multivariable Cox regression. RESULTS Five-year overall survival ranged from 45% for stage ...

Background null Chemoradiation treatment (CRT) for head and neck cancer (HNC) is associated with postswallow inhale events that elevate the risk of penetration/aspiration. The purpose of this study was to assess the validity of a rat model for investigating the effect of CRT on respiratory-swallow coordination. null Methods null Videofluoroscopic swallow study was performed on 10 Sprague-Dawley rats 3 months post-CRT (3 mg/kg Cisplatin, 10 fractions of 4.5 Gy/day radiotherapy to tongue base), an...
Transoral robotic surgery (TORS) is an established treatment for many subsites of Head and Neck cancer. With the improved flexibility and access of the single-port (SP) robotic system, tumors within the distal upper aerodigestive tract can now be reached and successfully treated with all the published advantages of transoral endoscopic surgery. Here in we offer the first published surgical technique for SP TORS for resectable hypopharyngeal carcinoma. The video presented demonstrates many import...

BACKGROUND Intraoperative scintigraphy (IoS) has been proposed as a tool for real-time intraoperative decision-making regarding parathyroid adenoma localization and confirmation of excision. METHODS Retrospective review of patients who underwent minimally invasive parathyroidectomies with scintigraphy performed intraoperatively. Preoperative neck ultrasound, 4D computed tomography, as well as intraoperative parathyroid hormone (IOPTH) and gamma probe measurements were conducted per standard prac...
