Department of Oral Surgery, Sapporo Medical University School of Medicine, South 1 West 16, Chuo-ku, Sapporo 060-8543, Japan.

The most important prognostic factor in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is neck metastasis, which is treated by neck dissection. Although selective neck dissection (SND) is a useful tool for clinically node-negative OSCC, its efficacy for neck node-positive OSCC has not been established. Sixty-eight OSCC patients with pN1⁻3 disease who were treated with curative surgery using SND and/or modified-radical/radical neck dissection (MRND/RND) were retrospectively reviewed. Read More

Patterns of Lymph Node Metastasis in Differentiated Thyroid Cancer; Clinical Implications with Particular Emphasis on the Emerging Role of Compartment-Oriented Lymph Node Dissection.

Oncol Res Treat 2019 23;42(3):143-147. Epub 2019 Feb 23.

Recent advances in modern imaging allow an accurate identification of involved or suspicious lymph nodes within the nodal compartments of the neck. Careful ultrasonographic lymphatic mapping of the neck by an experienced radiologist allows a targeted, compartment-oriented (or selective) lymph node dissection to be performed instead of the more extensive modified radical lymph node dissection. Compartment-oriented lymph node dissection necessitates the close cooperation of an experienced radiologist with a particular interest in thyroid and neck ultrasonography. Read More

Nomogram for predicting level V lymph node metastases in papillary thyroid carcinoma with clinically lateral lymph node metastases: A large retrospective cohort study of 1037 patients from FDUSCC.

J Cancer 2019 1;10(3):772-778. Epub 2019 Jan 1.

Department of Head and Neck Surgery, Fudan University Shanghai Cancer Center, Shanghai, 200032, China.

Extensive lateral neck dissection (LND), especially routine level V dissection, may potentially increase morbidity and have no significant benefit to survival in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). Our study aimed to determine the pattern and risk factors for level V lymph node metastasis (LNM) and to develop an assessment model based on a nomogram for predicting whether level V dissection is necessary. A total of 1037 PTC patients with clinically suspected LNM (N1b) who underwent total thyroidectomy (TT) with central LND and unilateral LND from 2011 to 2015 were retrospectively retrieved.

Lymph node ratio predicts recurrence in pediatric papillary thyroid cancer.

J Pediatr Surg 2019 Jan 5;54(1):129-132. Epub 2018 Oct 5.

Yale School of Medicine, Department of Surgery, New Haven, CT 06520. Electronic address:

Background: Regional lymph node (LN) metastasis at the time of presentation plays a significant role in predicting recurrence in patients with papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). Multiple studies in the adult population have demonstrated that the lymph node ratio (LNR) in both the central and lateral neck can improve the accuracy of recurrence prediction, but this ratio has not been studied in the pediatric population. In this study, we sought to investigate the LNR in the central and lateral compartments as a prognostic predictor for recurrence in pediatric patients with PTC. Read More

Long-term oncologic outcomes of papillary thyroid microcarcinoma according to the presence of clinically apparent lymph node metastasis: a large retrospective analysis of 5,348 patients.

Cancer Manag Res 2018 27;10:2883-2891. Epub 2018 Aug 27.

Department of Surgery, Open NBI Convergence Technology Research Laboratory, Yonsei Cancer Center, Severance Hospital, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea,

Purpose: Active surveillance (AS) of low-risk papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC) may reduce the risk of overtreatment of clinically insignificant cancer. However, the absence of predictor for the progression of PTMC resulted in treatment delay and potentially compromising cure of aggressive disease. Therefore, to anticipate potential damage of delayed surgery, we investigated the oncologic outcomes of patients with low-risk PTMC initially eligible for AS except clinically apparent lymph node metastasis (LNM), imitating delayed surgery with neck dissection.

Hybrid Approach for Asian Rhinoplasty: Open Approach Without Transcolumellar Incision.

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2018 Aug;26(3):269-283

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Inje University Seoul Paik Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

The hybrid approach delivers unlimited exposure and technical access, enabling all the procedures of the open approach. In addition, the hybrid approach is flexible in its extent of "dissection/ exposure" It can be more of a classic endonasal or limited access approach in some cases or open structural rhinoplasty and reconstruction in others. The benefits of the nonopen approach deserve equal attention among Asian rhinoplasty surgeons and residents-in-training courses. Read More
