This is a prospective observational study evaluating wound complications following head and neck surgery. Patients undergoing major head and neck surgery will be included in the study. Pat...
Through this study, we hope to learn more about the mechanisms, which may contribute to development and progression of head and neck cancer. The long-term goal of this study will be to de...
The primary objective of this study is to describe, in detail, patterns of care for head and neck carcinoma patient
In this retrospective registry trial, the investigators sought to assess the incidence and predictors of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular complications as well as their derivatives (acut...
IRX-2 is designed to activate your own body's immune system so that it can better fight the invasion of head and neck cancer. Researchers hope that IRX-2 will help your immune system to m...
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 radica...
Smoking is a highly prevalent risk factor among patients with head and neck cancer. However, few studies have examined the association of this modifiable risk factor on postoperative outcomes followin...
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 ne...
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...
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 sur...
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)
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.
A form of RHABDOMYOSARCOMA arising primarily in the head and neck, especially the orbit, of children below the age of 10. The cells are smaller than those of other rhabdomyosarcomas and are of two basic cell types: spindle cells and round cells. This cancer is highly sensitive to chemotherapy and has a high cure rate with multi-modality therapy. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p2188)
The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.
