Thyroid gland flap minimizes mucosal defects at supracricoid partial laryngectomy with cricohyoidoepiglottopexy

Wound infection is a major complication after supracricoid partial laryngectomy with cricohyoidoepiglottopexy (CHEP) for radiation therapy failure. A 60-year-old man received chemoradiotherapy for a glottic carcinoma. CHEP, reusing the thyroid gland flap (TF), was performed because the cancer recurred after a salvage vertical partial laryngectomy following radiation therapy failure. The TF was sutured to the supraglottis and cricoid cartilage mucosa to minimize mucosal defects before the hyoid bone and cricoid cartilage were sutured.

In conclusion, the patients with PTM had comparable outcomes with regard to mortality and cancer-specific mortality compared with those without PTM. This study showed that the patients with PTM can obtain an acceptable outcome after LDLT when carefully selected. PMID: 32023575 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Zhang M, Tufano RP, Russell J, Zhang Y, Zhang Y, Qiao Z, Luo Y Abstract BACKGROUND: Papillary thyroid micro-carcinoma (PTMC) typically carries an excellent prognosis regardless of the treatment option pursued. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for thyroid disease has been utilized for benign lesions and in patients who are poor surgical candidates for thyroid cancers with compression symptoms, but the efficacy and limitations of RFA as first line therapy for PTMC has not been described in adequate detail. The purpose of our study was to investigate RFA versus thyroidectomy in terms of efficacy, oncologic outco...

ConclusionsThyroidectomy may only be required during total laryngectomy for selected cases of advanced transglottic tumors and tumors with subglottic extension more than 10 mm.ResumoIntroduçãoEm geral, a invasão da glândula tireoide não é uma característica do carcinoma laríngeo avançado, não sendo necessário realizar tireoidectomia em todos os casos de laringectomia total.ObjetivosAvaliar a frequência da invasão da glândula tireoide em pacientes com carcinoma espinocelular avançado de laringe submetidos à laringe...

We describe the characteristics of first 50 patients with OSA and cancer of the register. Only 30% were females, 70% smokers (current or former), the median AHI at diagnosis was 43, 80% received positive airway pressure (PAP) treatment. Cancer diagnosis were retrospectively collected by anamnestic data from Vercelli register at the time of OSA diagnosis before starting PAP treatment.Results: In OSA and cancer patients from Vercelli Register, 34% had Urinary Tract Cancer (only 2 females, p

AbstractAround 1/3 of patients of locally advanced carcinoma thyroid present with tracheal infiltration either alone or along with infiltration of other adjacent structures. Even though trachea is infiltrated, adequate resection is the main modality of treatment in these patients. We retrospectively analysed carcinoma thyroid patients who were operated at our institute, between January 2011 and December 2018, and underwent thyroidectomy with tracheal or laryngeal resection. Seventeen patients underwent tracheal/laryngeal resection with thyroidectomy. The mean age of patients was 57  years. Six and eleven were male and...

ConclusionRABIT is a safe and feasible approach for thyroidectomy. It has several advantages in that it provides similar symmetrical view to conventional open surgery and enables to maintain specimen integrity and use of assistant port permits better handling of the gland. Additionally, the largest operating angles with this technique prevent collision between the robotic arms and provide excellent cosmetic satisfaction due to very small, five separate breast-axillo incisions.

Immunocytochemistry in a 78-year-old man diagnosed as having systemic metastatic cancer of unknown primary origin revealed atypical cells positive for napsin A and TTF-1, suggesting adenocarcinoma of the lung. However, there was no evidence of a primary lesion in the lung on positron emission tomography/computed tomography or at autopsy. Meanwhile, both the left and right thyroid lobes were firm and grayish white with marked fibrosis. Histology identified a diffuse sclerosing variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma that was positive for TTF-1 and napsin A but negative for PAX8.

Abstract It is known that lncRNA PTCSC3 inhibits thyroid cancer and glioma and STAT3 promotes cancer development. We in this study investigated the potential involvement of PTCSC3 in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) and explored its interactions with STAT3. In the present study we showed that plasma PTCSC3 was downregulated in early stage LSCC patients, and the downregulation of PTCSC3 separated early stage LSCC patients from control group. LncRNA HOTAIR was upregulated in early stage LSCC patients and was significantly and inversely correlated with PTCSC3 in LSCC patients. PTCSC3 overexpression led to the...
