Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, Guy's and St. Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, London, United Kingdom.

The first application of robotic technology in surgery was described in 1985 when a robot was used to define the trajectory for a stereotactic brain biopsy. Following its successful application in a variety of surgical operations, the da Vinci® robot, the most widely used surgical robot at present, made its clinical debut in otorhinolaryngology and head and neck surgery in 2005 when the first transoral robotic surgery (TORS) resections of base of tongue neoplasms were reported. Subsequently, the indications for TORS rapidly expanded, and they now include tumours of the oropharynx, hypopharynx, parapharyngeal space, and supraglottic larynx, as well as obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is absent in branchial cleft cysts of the neck distinguishing them from HPV positive cystic metastasis.

Acta Otolaryngol 2018 Sep 15;138(9):855-858. Epub 2018 May 15.

b Department of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology, Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery , Karolinska University Hospital , Stockholm , Sweden.

Background: Distinguishing branchial cleft cysts (BCCs) from cystic metastases of a human papillomavirus (HPV) positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) is challenging. Fine needle aspirates (FNAs) from cystic metastasis may be non-representative, while reactive squamous cells from BCC can be atypic. Based on cytology and with the support of HPV DNA positivity many centers treat cystic metastasis oncological and thus patients are spared neck dissection. Read More

Growth of the Epidemic of Human Papillomavirus-Related Oropharyngeal Carcinomas in Whites in Selected US Metropolitan and Nonmetropolitan Counties, 1992-2013.

J Registry Manag 2017 ;44(1):4-10

BACKGROUND: Age-standardized incidence rates (ASIRs) for US non-Hispanic whites (NHWs) have been increasing since 1999 for squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) at oropharyngeal (OP) anatomic sites strongly associated with human papillomavirus (HPV), as also reported from certain European countries. ASIRs declined slightly, however, from 2000–2006 to 2007–2012 in Stockholm County, Sweden (an urban area) for SCC of the tonsil (TSCC) but not base of tongue (BTSCC). For the United States, this study examined the growth of the epidemic of these cancers in 1992–2013. Read More

Dysphagia 2018 10 23;33(5):691-706. Epub 2018 Mar 23.

First Department of Oto-rhino-laryngology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki School of Medicine, AHEPA University Hospital, St. Kiriakidi 1, 54636, Thessaloníki, Greece.

The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence, severity, and pattern of evolution of swallowing impairments encountered in head and neck cancer (HNC) patients before and after chemoradiation (CRT) with videofluoroscopy of swallowing study (VFSS), using the modified barium swallow impairment profile (MBSImP) protocol and scoring system, and to determine the appropriate time points in which these patients should undergo VFSS post-CRT. A prospective cohort of 69 patients with locally advanced HNC underwent VFSS with the MBSImP protocol at 5 evaluation points: pre-CRT, and 1, 3, 6, and 12 months post-CRT. VFSS was scored with MBSImP, penetration-aspiration scale (PAS), and swallowing performance status (SPS) scale. Read More
