A new combined index of SUVmax of lymph node in PET / CT by a weighting coefficient plus its maximum minor axis in CECT to evaluate occult lymph node metastasis in clinical N0 patients with tongue cancer.

J Med Invest 2021 ;68(1.2):154-158

Department of Otolaryngology, Tokushima University Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Tokushima, Japan.

To predict occult nodal metastasis in clinical N0 patients with tongue cancer, we developed combined index (CI) : SUVmax of the largest lymph node in PET / CT by weighting coefficient plus its maximum minor axis (< 10 mm) in contrast-enhanced CT (CECT). In this retrospective study, 57 clinical N0 patients with tongue cancer, who underwent elective supraomohyoid neck dissection at cervical levels of I-III were enrolled. The cutoff value of SUVmax of 2. Read More

Level IV neck dissection as an elective treatment for oral tongue carcinoma-a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol 2020 Oct 13;130(4):363-372. Epub 2020 Jun 13.

Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Galilee Medical Center, affiliated with Azrieli Faculty of Medicine, Bar-Ilan University, Safed, Israel; Azrieli Faculty of Medicine, Bar-Ilan University, Safed, Israel. Electronic address:

Objective: The purpose of our systematic review was to investigate the prevalence of level IV involvement and skip metastases in patients with clinically negative neck (cN0) oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma (OTSCC). The occurrence of occult metastases to lower levels in the neck (levels IV and V) or the development of an erratic distribution of cervical metastases ("skip metastases") that bypass the upper neck levels (levels I to III) and go directly to level IV or V challenges the role of supraomohyoid neck dissection in the treatment of OTSCC; therefore, controversy exists over including level IV cervical nodes during an elective neck dissection of OTSCC.

Study Design: Our search included all studies published from 1989 until January 2018 in the Cochrane Library, PubMed, EMBASE, and Web of Science. Read More

Results of a randomized controlled trial of level IIb preserving neck dissection in clinically node-negative squamous carcinoma of the oral cavity.

World J Surg Oncol 2018 Nov 8;16(1):219. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Department of Pathology, Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, 221 005, India.

Background: The lymphatic spread from the cancers of the oral cavity follows an orderly progression and involvement of lower nodes without involvement of upper nodes and skip metastasis is rare. Selective neck dissections are increasingly being performed for node-positive patients; however, in node-negative patients the options of wait and watch, prophylactic radiotherapy, and prophylactic elective node dissections are debated. Quality of life and shoulder functions are important to choose the appropriate therapeutic modality. Read More
