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

Sonography used in the infantile desmoid fibromatosis of postcricoid area: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2017 Nov;96(44):e8500

Rationale: Infantile desmoid fibromatosis of the postcricoid area is a rare disease and is characterized by a proliferation of fibrous tissue with non-metastasis, local infiltration, and a high rate of recurrence after surgical resection. Currently, ultrasound is scarcely used in the hypopharynx and larynx area.

Patient Concerns: A 4-year-old boy presented with hoarseness, deep voice and snoring for 2∼4 years without any surgical history. Read More

Characteristics and prognostic implications of high-risk HPV-associated hypopharyngeal cancers.

PLoS One 2013 11;8(11):e78718. Epub 2013 Nov 11.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, Korea.

Background: High-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) is an oncogenic virus that causes oropharyngeal cancers, and it has a favorable outcome after the treatment. Unlike in oropharyngeal cancer, the prevalence and role of high-risk HPV in the etiology of hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (HPSCC) is uncertain.

Objective: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect and prognostic significance of high-risk HPV in patients with HPSCC. Read More

Laryngeal schwannoma excised under direct laryngoscopy: case report.

Ear Nose Throat J 2012 May;91(5):204-5

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Laryngeal schwannomas (neurilemmomas) are extremely rare, and they present the otorhinolaryngologist with diagnostic and management challenges. These lesions usually present as a submucosal mass, and they are always a potential threat to the airway. We describe the case of a 75-year-old woman with a laryngeal schwannoma that arose from the left postcricoid area and covered the piriform sinus and arytenoid cartilage on that side. Read More

U R Gößler

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

Laryngoscope 2011 Feb 13;121(2):397-403. Epub 2011 Jan 13.

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.

Thirty total laryngectomy and five pharyngolaryngoesophagectomy specimens were studied with the whole-organ sectioning technique. The horizontal plane of sectioning was chosen to study the pattern and degree of extralaryngeal spread in carcinoma of the larynx. There were 22 transglottic, 6 supraglottic, and 7 infraglottic tumors. Read More

Radiotherapy of carcinoma in the hypopharynx.

Strahlentherapie 1980 May;156(5):315-7

Thirty-five patients with carcinoma of hypopharynx were treated with irradiation to a dosage of 5000 to 6600 rad in six to nine weeks. The one-year survival was 20 out of 35 (57%), the three-year survival five out of 24 (21%), and the five-year survival four out of 19 (21%). Patients with smaller tumours of T1N0 and T2N0 presented a higher five-year figure, three out of seven, than patients with advanced tumours, one out of twelve (8%). Read More

Treatment of carcinoma of the hypopharynx.

Head Neck Surg 1979 Nov-Dec;2(2):107-11

In a review of 80 patients with hypopharyngeal squamous-cell carcinoma, 43 patients were found to have had lesions arising in the pyriform sinus, 34 had lesions arising on the postcollateral wall of the hypopharynx, and 3 had lesions in the postcricoid area. Therapeutic modalities included radical radiation therapy in 56 patients, radiation plus surgery in 13 patients, and planned combined therapy in 11 patients. The five-year determinate survival rate of all the patients was 20%. Read More

A study has been carried out of 42 episodes of cardiac arrest related to 90 000 otorhinolaryngological operations. The basic pathology, factors precipitating the arrest, and the results of treatment are analysed. Clinical areas presenting special problems are the surgery of cancer of the postcricoid area, deliberate hypotension, anaesthesia for laryngoscopy and respiratory obstruction. Read More

Relationship of Plummer-Vinson disease to cancer of the upper alimentary tract in Sweden.

Cancer Res 1975 Nov;35(11 Pt. 2):3308-16

Sideropenic anemia with epithelial lesions (Plummer-Vinson syndrome) was previously very common among women in northern Sweden. The incidence of this condition is decreasing, however, because of better nutrition and improved health care. Plummer-Vinson syndrome as a sequela of previous sideropenic anemia still influences the pattern of hypopharyngeal and oral cancer in northern Sweden where the female/male ratio in these diseases is remarkably high and where cancer in the postcricoid part of the hypopharynx is relatively common.
