Pharyngeal observation via transoral endoscopy using a lip cover-type mouthpiece.

J Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 Aug 21;34(8):1384-1389. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Second Department of Internal Medicine, Osaka Medical College, Osaka, Japan.

Background And Aim: Simultaneous and metachronous head and neck cancers are likely to develop in patients with current or previous esophageal cancer. The Valsalva maneuver facilitates the visualization of the hypopharyngeal area during endoscopic observation, but it requires transnasal endoscopy. We developed a novel Valsalva maneuver using transoral endoscopy with a lip cover-type mouthpiece. Read More

Open-neck organ preservation surgery for hypopharyngeal cancer: indications, techniques, limits, and outcomes.

Curr Opin Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2019 Apr;27(2):123-129

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Beijing Friendship Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing, China.

Purpose Of Review: To appraise the practice and role of open-neck organ preserving surgery for hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma and to update the current indications, techniques, limits, and outcomes.

Recent Findings: The role of primary surgery for hypopharyngeal carcinoma has shifted over the past two decades to primary nonsurgical management with the use of induction or concurrent chemoradiotherapy. The preferred and most suitable tumours for open-neck surgery are the small-volume T stage diseases, with small to medium-volume neck metastases, however such patients are exceedingly rare.

Transoral endoscopic examination of head and neck region.

Dig Endosc 2018 Jul 26;30(4):516-521. Epub 2018 Apr 26.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Okayama University Graduate School of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Okayama, Japan.

Transoral endoscopy with narrow band imaging (NBI) is useful for early detection of head and neck (HN) cancer. However, the lateral and anterior walls of the oropharynx, postcricoid area, and posterior wall of the hypopharynx are difficult to observe using transoral endoscopy. Advanced cancers in these regions may be missed even when NBI is used. Read More

Laryngorhinootologie 2012 Mar 28;91 Suppl 1:S63-85. Epub 2012 Mar 28.

Universitäts-HNO-Klinik, Universitätsmedizin Mannheim, Mannheim.

The treatment of laryngeal and hypopharyngeal malignancies remains a challenging task for the head and neck surgeon as the chosen treatment modality often has to bridge the gap between oncologically sound radicality and preservation of function. Due to the increase in transoral laser surgery in early tumor stages and chemoradiation in advanced stages, the usage of traditional transcutaneous approaches has decreased over the recent past. In addition, the need for a function-sparing surgical approach as well as highest possible quality of life has become evident. Read More

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Connecticut, Farmington, Connecticut, USA.

Objectives/hypothesis: Postcricoid vascular lesions are a rare cause of dysphagia and stridor in the pediatric population. Currently, there is no clear consensus on what type of vascular lesions are common in the postcricoid area because adequate histological or immunohistochemistry studies are lacking. This study aimed to describe the histology and immunohistochemistry of postcricoid masses in our institutions' experience, and consolidate available data on the symptoms, management, and histology of these unusual malformations with a comprehensive literature review.

Department of Otolaryngology--Head and Neck Surgery, St. James's Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.

Objectives/hypothesis: The presence of nodal metastatic disease in head and neck cancer is the foremost prognostic factor. Although neck dissection is the surgical gold standard for the treatment of cervical lymphatic spread, the paratracheal nodal group is not routinely included in the dissection.
