Autonomization of pectoralis major flap in head and neck surgery.

Eur Ann Otorhinolaryngol Head Neck Dis 2022 Jan 12;139(1):39-41. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Division of Otorhinolaryngology, Department of Surgical Sciences, University of Turin, Via Genova 3, 10126 Turin, Italy. Electronic address:

The pectoralis major flap (PMF) is one of the most used pedicled flaps for reconstructive surgery in head and neck. Basing on previous studies observing that a vascular accident or pedicle ligation not always resulted in necrosis of free flaps, sometimes after a short critical period, we describe the possibility to perform the division of the PMF pedicle. The autonomization of PMF is based on the hypothesis that the flap, after a critical period, develops a neoangiogenesis at the free portion in the recipient site. Read More

High-risk human papilloma virus was not detected in a Norwegian cohort of oral squamous cell carcinoma of the mobile tongue.

Clin Exp Dent Res 2021 02 3;7(1):70-77. Epub 2020 Nov 3.

Faculty of Dentistry, Institute of Oral Biology, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway.

Objectives: The presence of and the causative role of high-risk human papilloma virus (HPV) is a subject of controversy in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). The disagreement can be related to the misclassification of OSCC as oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma and/or lack of standard detection methods. This study aimed to examine the presence of transcriptionally active high-risk HPV in a homogenous Norwegian cohort of primary and second primary OSCC of the mobile tongue (oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma-OTSCC).

Development and Evaluation of a Digital Intervention for Fulfilling the Needs of Older Migrant Patients With Cancer: User-Centered Design Approach.

J Med Internet Res 2020 10 26;22(10):e21238. Epub 2020 Oct 26.

Department of Communication Science, Amsterdam School of Communication Research/ASCoR, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Department of Pathology, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, 1515 Holcombe Blvd., Houston, TX 77030, United States of America; Department of Head and Neck Surgery, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, 1515 Holcombe Blvd., Houston, TX 77030, United States of America. Electronic address:

Secretory carcinoma of the salivary glands is a distinct entity with distinct morphologic features, immunohistochemical profile and molecular alterations. It mainly affects middle aged individuals with slight male predominance and parotid gland is the most common site of involvement. Although ETV6-NTRK3 gene fusion is considered pathognomonic for secretory carcinoma, advances in molecular profiling of this tumor have led to the discovery of novel ETV6 fusion partners and gene mutations.

A combined histo-score based on tumor differentiation and lymphocytic infiltrate is a robust prognostic marker for mobile tongue cancer.

Virchows Arch 2020 Dec 30;477(6):865-872. Epub 2020 Jun 30.

Department of Medical Biology, UiT The Arctic University of Norway, Tromsø, Norway.

Small form factor, flexible, dual-modality handheld probe for smartphone-based, point-of-care oral and oropharyngeal cancer screening.

J Biomed Opt 2019 10;24(10):1-8

The University of Arizona, College of Optical Sciences, Tucson, Arizona, United States.

Oral cancer is a growing health issue in low- and middle-income countries due to betel quid, tobacco, and alcohol use and in younger populations of middle- and high-income communities due to the prevalence of human papillomavirus. The described point-of-care, smartphone-based intraoral probe enables autofluorescence imaging and polarized white light imaging in a compact geometry through the use of a USB-connected camera module. The small size and flexible imaging head improves on previous intraoral probe designs and allows imaging the cheek pockets, tonsils, and base of tongue, the areas of greatest risk for both causes of oral cancer.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jul 7;48(7):851-856. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Cranio-Maxillo-Facial and Oral Surgery, University Hospital of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

This study was performed to report the outcomes of patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) of the tongue over a 10-year period with the aim of testing the hypothesis that the lymph node ratio (LNR) has a significant influence on loco-regional recurrence. The charts of 227 patients with OSCC of the mobile tongue treated at the University Hospital of Zurich from 2003 to 2012 were screened. Following the application of the exclusion criteria (prior chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or surgery, perioperative death, N3 disease, unresectable disease, synchronous second primary, no signed informed consent, and follow-up <3years), prospective data were collected and a retrospective analysis performed for 88 of these patients who were treated with selective neck dissection.

Primary clear cell sarcoma of the tongue and surgical reconstruction: About a rare case report.

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2019 Feb 24;64(1):98-105. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

Institut Gustave-Roussy, department of plastic surgery, Gustave-Roussy, 114 rue Édouard-Vaillant, 94805 Villejuif, France.

Clear cell sarcomas (SCC), also called "soft-tissue melanoma", are rare and aggressive tumors that preferentially affect the lower limbs (tendons and fasciae) and which have also been described in head and neck localizations. Their clinical and immunohistochemical mimicry with melanoma makes it difficult to diagnose sarcomas. SCC treatment is mainly focused on large-scale resection surgery with adjuvant radiotherapy because of their low chemo-sensitivity and extreme lymphophilia. Read More
