Re-irradiation Using Intensity-modulated Radiotherapy for Recurrent and Second Primary Head and Neck Cancer.

Information on re-irradiation (re-RT) for recurrent and second primary head and neck cancer is limited. Herein, a description of our long-term experience of re-RT for previously irradiated head and neck cancer is provided.

Head and Neck Masses.

Head and neck cancers comprise 4% of the cancer burden in the United States each year. Many types of head and neck cancers present as an asymptomatic, nontender neck mass or nonspecific symptoms, such as hoarseness, sore throat, and pain. Head and neck cancers are frequently diagnosed incidentally by the primary care physician or dentist. This review summarizes the epidemiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and treatment of several common head and neck cancers in order to provide an increased awarene...

Long-Term Quality of Life and Nutritional Status of Patients with Head and Neck Cancer.

Association of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act With Insurance Coverage for Head and Neck Cancer in the SEER Database.

Patients with head and neck squamous cell cancer (HNSCC) are often uninsured or underinsured at the time of their diagnosis. This access to care has been shown to influence treatment decisions and survival outcomes.

Association of Facility Volume With Positive Margin Rate in the Surgical Treatment of Head and Neck Cancer.

The achievement of complete tumor resection with tumor-free margins is one of the main principles of oncologic surgery for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). The negative prognostic influence of a positive margin (PM) across all head and neck subsites has been well established. National guidelines recommend the use of adjuvant chemoradiation therapy (CRT) in the setting of PM.

Outcomes of urgent suspicion of head and neck cancer referrals in Glasgow.

Primary care patients with a suspected head and neck cancer are referred through the urgent suspicion of cancer referral pathway. Rates of cancer detection through this pathway are low. Evidence surrounding the pathway of these patients is lacking. This study aimed to determine the outcome of urgent suspicion of cancer referrals for head and neck cancer.

Case-control study of oral disease indexes in individuals with head and neck cancer after antineoplastic therapy.

To evaluate the oral health of patients with head and neck cancer after antineoplastic treatment, and to compare them with patients with no history of cancer.

Identification of Baseline Characteristics Associated With Development of Depression Among Patients With Head and Neck Cancer: A Secondary Analysis of a Randomized Clinical Trial.

Patients with head and neck cancer (HNC) experience increased risk of depression and compromised quality of life. Identifying patients with HNC at risk of depression can help establish targeted interventions.

Frailty in geriatric head and neck cancer: A contemporary review.

To provide a summary of the current frailty literature relating to head and neck cancer.

Phase 2 trial of neoadjuvant chemotherapy and transoral endoscopic surgery with risk-adapted adjuvant therapy for squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.

The objective of this study was to demonstrate the feasibility and efficacy of induction chemotherapy, surgery, and pathology-guided adjuvant therapy to treat transorally resectable squamous head and neck cancer.

Quality of life of head and neck cancer patients in urban and regional areas: An Australian perspective.

Head and neck cancer treatment affects quality of life. There are differences in quality of life outcomes and perceived supportive care needs between cancer patients living in metropolitan and regional-remote areas. This study investigated quality of life over the first 6 months following head and neck cancer diagnosis and observed differences in quality of life by geographical location.

Reirradiation of head and neck cancer using modern highly conformal techniques.

Locoregional disease recurrence or development of a second primary cancer after definitive radiotherapy for head and neck cancers remains a treatment challenge. Reirradiation utilizing traditional techniques has been limited by concern for serious toxicity. With the advent of newer, more precise radiotherapy techniques, such as intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), proton radiotherapy, and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), there has been renewed interest in curative-intent head and neck reirradiatio...

Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) versus 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT) for head and neck cancer: cost-effectiveness analysis.

A cost-effectiveness analysis of IMRT compared to 3D-CRT for head and neck cancer patients (HNCPs) was conducted in the Brazilian Public Health System.

Immediate Negative Pressure Wound Therapy After Free Flap Transfer for Head and Neck Cancer Surgery.

This study aimed to assess the outcomes of administering negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) in patients immediately following free flap reconstruction after head and neck cancer surgery and radical neck lymph node dissection. The outcomes were compared with those of patients who received conventional wound care (CWC).

Suppression of SESN1 reduces cisplatin and hyperthermia resistance through increasing reactive oxygen species (ROS) in human maxillary cancer cells.

Cisplatin is used as a standard chemotherapeutic agent for head and neck cancer treatment. However, some head and neck cancers have cisplatin resistance, leading to difficulty in treatment and poor prognosis. Overcoming cisplatin resistance remains an important strategy to improve prognoses for head and neck cancer patients.

Nutritional Intervention for Nonsurgical Head and Neck Cancer Patients Treated with Radiation Therapy: Results from a Prospective Stepped-Wedge Clinical Protocol.

To evaluate the impact on weight loss (WL) of a standardized nutritional stepped-wedge protocol on consecutive head and neck cancer (HNC) patients treated with curative radiotherapy (RT).

Support Needs of People With Head and Neck Cancer Regarding the Disease and Its Treatment.

To provide insight into people's experiences in dealing with the consequences of head and neck cancer (HNC) in daily life and their needs for self-management support.

Head and neck cancer: validation of a data collection instrument.

construct and validate the content of an instrument to collect data from patients with head and neck cancer (HNC) served in a specialty clinic.

Explorative study on quality of life in relation to salivary secretion rate in head and neck cancer patients treated with radiotherapy up to 2 years post treatment.

The aim of this study was to analyse quality of life (QoL) pretreatment and up to 24 months post radiation therapy (RT) in patients with head and neck (H&N) cancer.

Illness perceptions as predictors of psychological distress among head and neck cancer survivors: a longitudinal study.

Leventhal's commonsense model implies illness perceptions influence illness outcomes. This study examined illness perceptions among head and neck cancer survivors, and whether these predicted subsequent psychological distress.

The potential for liquid biopsies in head and neck cancer.

Head and neck cancers consist of a heterogeneous group of cancers that are difficult to treat successfully. Limited screening options result in patients being diagnosed at advanced stages at presentation, and difficulty with treatment options and post-treatment surveillance can lead to poor outcomes. In this setting, tools for early and precise detection of disease will be highly valuable. Liquid biopsies, or use of analytes in blood, saliva, and other body fluid samples, provide new avenues for cancer scre...

Combination of submandibular salivary gland transfer and intensity-modulated radiotherapy to reduce dryness of mouth (xerostomia) in patients with head and neck cancer.

Xerostomia is a debilitating side effect of radiotherapy for head and neck cancer. Combining surgical submandibular-gland transfer (SMGT) with intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) may provide greater protection of salivary function.

Maintenance Therapy with Biweekly Cetuximab: Optimizing Schedule Can Preserve Activity and Improves Compliance in Advanced Head and Neck Cancer.

This study evaluates maintenance cetuximab administered every 2 weeks (q2w) after chemotherapy plus cetuximab as first-line treatment in a series of patients with head and neck squamous cell cancer and compares the results with those obtained in a historical control group of patients receiving weekly cetuximab.
