Transoral Robotic Surgery (TORS) for Oral and Laryngopharyngeal Lesions Using Da Vinci Robotic Surgical System
The purpose of this study is to conduct a pilot single-arm to assess transoral robotic surgery (TORS) for oral and laryngopharyngeal benign and malignant lesions using the Da Vinci Robotic Surgical System.
Patients are going to be evaluated in their usual regular clinical follow ups starting with preoperative first visit, 3 weeks, 3 months and 6 months postoperatively with a Quality of Life survey (Head and Neck Cancer Inventory, HNCI-QOLQ).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
Head And Neck Neoplasms
Soft tissue tumors or cancer arising from the mucosal surfaces of the LIP; oral cavity; PHARYNX; LARYNX; and cervical esophagus. Other sites included are the NOSE and PARANASAL SINUSES; SALIVARY GLANDS; THYROID GLAND and PARATHYROID GLANDS; and MELANOMA and non-melanoma skin cancers of the head and neck. (from Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 4th ed, p1651)
A symptom, not a disease, of a twisted neck. In most instances, the head is tipped toward one side and the chin rotated toward the other. The involuntary muscle contractions in the neck region of patients with torticollis can be due to congenital defects, trauma, inflammation, tumors, and neurological or other factors.
Large veins on either side of the root of the neck formed by the junction of the internal jugular and subclavian veins. They drain blood from the head, neck, and upper extremities, and unite to form the superior vena cava.
Either of the two principal arteries on both sides of the neck that supply blood to the head and neck; each divides into two branches, the internal carotid artery and the external carotid artery.

RATIONALE: Transoral robotic surgery may make it easier to find and remove benign or malignant tumors of the larynx and pharynx and cause less damage to normal tissue. It is not yet known...
To evaluate the use of the daVinci Robotic System for better visibility and access of head and neck lesions and decreased amount of surgery time.
1. Patients included will have benign or malignant lesions with treatment plan for endoscopic resection or resection by other minimally invasive techniques. 2. They will be offered...
The recent introduction of robotic surgical system has revolutionized the field of minimally invasive surgery. The investigators hypothesized that adoption of a robotic surgical system for...
Purpose of the Study:To evaluate the feasibility of including an additional step of transoral geniohyoidpexy in the transoral robotic tongue base reduction (TBR) and supraglottoplasty (SGP) procedure...
Surgical management of the nasopharynx is complex. Both traditional and endoscopic transnasal techniques are demanding. Purely transoral robotic nasopharyngectomy has been described but it needs a pal...
BACKGROUND: Because of the significant toxicity of chemoradiation regimens, there has been a resurgence of interest in the primary surgical management of head and neck cancer and, in particular, the u...
To evaluate the patterns of failure, survival, and functional outcomes for patients treated with transoral robotic surgery (TORS) and compare these results with those from a cohort of patients treated...
BACKGROUND: Technological advances in thyroid surgery have included various "minimally invasive" thyroidectomy techniques, both open and endoscopic. These include not only minimally invasive video-ass...
