1059 endoscopic submucosal dissection for an early cancer at epiglottis

Head and neck carcinoma tends to happen synchronous or metachronous with esophageal carcinoma. Early cancer of pharynx is occasionally found during EGD exam, ESD is a mininally invasive treatment compared to the traditional surgery for it does not change the anatomy of the pharynx. Performing ESD in such a narrow and complicated space require skills.In this case,we finished a ESD at epiglottis sucessfully with no complication. The final pathology result was squamous cell caner(m1). no recurence was found during follow-up.

The objective of this article is to document whether DIRT can accurately map the position of the perforators and measure their influence on the perfusion of the flap in order to select the best perforators to improve the outcome of breast reconstructions with free DIEP flaps. A systematic review of the literature published between January 1998 and November 23th 2018 was conducted regarding the possible benefit of dynamic infrared thermography (DIRT) in DIEP-flap breast reconstructions.The databases PubMed and Web of Science were used to search for qualified articles. Inclusion criteria were women who underwent a breast rec...

Conclusion: Higher pretreatment RDW levels were demonstrated to be associated with poor clinical outcome in male LSCC patients and might be novel markers for patient stratification in LSCC management. Introduction Laryngeal cancer is one of the most common cancers of the head and neck, of which the estimated crude incidence and mortality rates in China were 1.86/100,000 and 1.01/100,000, respectively (1). This disease has a male predominance with a male-to-female ratio of 20 to 30:1 in China (2). The most commonly observed histological type of laryngeal cancer is laryngeal squamous cell cancer (LSCC), accounting for ...

Authors: Giannitto C, Preda L, Zurlo V, Funicelli L, Ansarin M, Di Pietro S, Bellomi M Abstract Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma is the sixth most common cancer diagnosed worldwide and the eighth most common cause of cancer death. Malignant tumors of the oral cavity, oropharynx, and larynx can be treated by surgical resection or radiotheraphy with or without chemotheraphy and have a profound impact on quality of life functions, including swallowing. When surgery is the chosen treatment modality, the patient may experience swallowing impairment in the oral and pharyngeal phases of deglutition. A videofluoroscop...
