Lymph node resection induces the activation of tumor cells in the lungs.

Cancer Sci 2019 Feb 17;110(2):509-518. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

Laboratory of Biomedical Engineering for Cancer, Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan.

Lymph node (LN) dissection is a crucial procedure for cancer staging, diagnosis and treatment, and for predicting patient survival. Activation of lung metastatic lesions after LN dissection has been described for head and neck cancer and breast cancer. Preclinical studies have reported that dissection of a tumor-bearing LN is involved in the activation and rapid growth of latent tumor metastases in distant organs, but it is also important to understand how normal (non-tumor-bearing) LN resection influences secondary cancer formation.

Quantitative lymph node burden as a 'very-high-risk' factor identifying head and neck cancer patients benefiting from postoperative chemoradiation.

Ann Oncol 2019 Jan;30(1):76-84

Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute.

Background: Adjuvant chemoradiation (CRT) is standard for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) patients with positive margins or extranodal extension (ENE) following surgery. However, emerging evidence suggests the number of positive lymph nodes (LNs) is the dominant determinant of survival in non-oropharyngeal HNSCC and thus may better identify those benefiting from treatment intensification.

Patients And Methods: Patients from the National Cancer Database diagnosed with non-oropharyngeal HNSCC (oral cavity, larynx, hypopharynx) between 2004 and 2014 and undergoing surgical resection, neck dissection, and postoperative radiotherapy (RT) were included. Read More

Targeting CD44v6 for fluorescence-guided surgery in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.

Sci Rep 2018 Jul 11;8(1):10467. Epub 2018 Jul 11.

Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences, Department of Cell Biology, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is an often highly invasive tumor, infiltrating functionally important tissue areas. Achieving complete tumor resection and preserving functionally relevant tissue structures depends on precise identification of tumor-free resection margins during surgery. Fluorescence-guided surgery (FGS), by intraoperative detection of tumor cells using a fluorescent tracer, may guide surgical excision and identify tumor-positive resection margins. Read More

Authors:
A Mishra

J Laryngol Otol 2018 Jul 18;132(7):657-660. Epub 2018 Jun 18.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology,King George's Medical University,Lucknow,India.

Background: Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma often attaches firmly to the adjoining bony region around the sphenopalatine foramina-sphenopalatine fossa-pterygomaxillary fissure. This can result in hourglass-shaped constriction and predispose to incomplete resection (residual disease) with a transpalatal approach. This paper describes attempts to address this 'inaccessible' area with a novel instrument, used since 2012. Read More
