INTRODUCTION Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common type of non-melanoma malignant skin tumors. Eighty-five percent of all cases are located on the skin of the head and neck. The risk of recurrence after surgery is estimated at 5-15%. AIM To evaluate the selected risk factors for recurrence after surgical treatment of head and neck BCC at the(More)
INTRODUCTION Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer type worldwide, and 80 % of skin cancers are basal cell carcinoma (BCC). The main risk factor for developing BCC is exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR), particularly high-dose exposure at a young age. Outdoor workers, particularly farmers, are at high risk of developing BCC. However, studies(More)
Microsurgical free flaps are considered state of the art in head and neck reconstruction after composite tumor resections. The anterolateral thigh (ALT) flap is frequently used in ablative head and neck surgery, providing superior functional and aesthetic restoration with a minor donor-site morbidity. However, flap failures do occur occasionally, vascular(More)
Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis is an increasingly common disease which leads to organic and functional limitations. Clinical symptoms depend on the location and extent of the papillomatosis. They include hoarseness, cough, and, in some cases, significant narrowing of the respiratory and digestive tracts. The present report describes a fatal case of a(More)
550,000 new cases of cancer of the oral cavity and pharynx and 160,000 of larynx are diagnosed each year worldwide. It is estimated that each year because of head and neck cancer 400,000 of patients will die. Head and neck neoplasms are the tumors which, because of their location, secretly develop and produce uncharacteristic symptoms identical to those(More)
INTRODUCTION Free flaps with vascular anastomosis have been widely used in clinical practice for more than 30 years. They are standard in reconstructive surgery following extensive resections caused by neoplasms of the head and neck. The anterolateral thigh flap (ALT) constitutes very good reconstructive material due to the long vascular pedicle, the(More)
The anterolateral thigh (ALT) flap was first described in 1984. It is now widely used in reconstructive surgery following extensive tumour resection in head and neck cancer. Routine preoperative perforator mapping is recommended due to variability of the vascular anatomy of the flap. A wide array of diagnostic tools is available for this purpose, including(More)
