Surgical management of the recurrent laryngeal nerve in thyroidectomy: American Head and Neck Society Consensus Statement
Abstract “I have noticed in operations of this kind, which I have seen performed by others upon the living, and in a number of excisions, which I have myself performed on the dead body, that most of the difficulty in the separation of the tumor has occurred in the region of these ligaments…. This difficulty, I believe, to be a very frequent source of that accident, which so commonly occurs in removal of goiter, I mean division of the recurrent laryngeal nerve.” Sir James Berry (1887) (Source: Head and Neck)

Exploring the rationale for combining ionizing radiation and immune checkpoint blockade in head and neck cancer
ConclusionAlthough daily fractionated radiation is well established as the standard of care for the treatment of patients with head and neck cancer, how this radiation schema alters antitumor immunity needs further study. If the radiation doses and fractions alter antitumor immunity differently can have profound implications in the rational design of clinical trials investigating whether radiation can enhance response rates to immune checkpoint blockade.

ConclusionPostoperative CRT seems underutilized with positive margins and/or ECE and overutilized without positive margins and/or ECE. The CRT was associated with improved OS but the benefit persisted only in the subset with positive margins and/or ECE. (Source: Head and Neck)

Sarcomas of the sinonasal tract
Abstract BackgroundSinonasal sarcomas are rare and heterogeneous in nature. Continuously collecting data influencing the prognosis is fundamental for optimizing therapeutic assessment of this highly destructive neoplasm. MethodsWe conducted a single‐institution retrospective cohort study considering 27 patients with sinonasal sarcoma. ResultsThe overall survival (OS) rates for 1 year and 5 years were calculated as 74% and 36%, respectively. Extent of the primary tumor (P = .010), nodal spread (P = .009), and age (P = .004) significantly reduced the OS. Disease‐free survival (DF...

Prevalence of adverse pathological features in 1 to 4  cm low‐risk differentiated thyroid carcinoma
Abstract BackgroundThe American Thyroid Association (ATA) recommends thyroid lobectomy for 1 to 4 cm tumors without adverse features. We studied the prevalence of adverse pathological features in patients eligible for unilateral lobectomy. MethodsWe conducted a retrospective study of patients who underwent total thyroidectomy. Patients with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) with tumors measuring 1 to 4 cm with no known preoperative adverse features were included in this study. Patients with nodal and distant metastasis, tumors  4 cm, age
