IMPORTANCE Most patients with oral cavity squamous cell cancer (OCSCC) are initially seen at an early stage (I and II). Although patient and tumor prognostic features have been analyzed extensively, population-level data examining how variations in treatment factors impact survival are lacking to date. OBJECTIVE To analyze associations between treatment(More)
IMPORTANCE Head and neck cancer (HNC) is responsible for substantial morbidity, mortality, and cost in the United States. Early detection and lifestyle risk factors associated with HNC, both determinants of disease burden and outcomes, are interrelated with public knowledge of this disease. Understanding of current public knowledge of HNC is lacking. (More)
OBJECTIVE To report the incidence of positive surgical margins in early oral cavity cancer and identify patient, tumor, and system factors associated with their occurrence. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING Retrospective analysis of the National Cancer Database. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Patients diagnosed with stage I or II oral cavity squamous cell cancer between(More)
BACKGROUND Oral cavity squamous cell cancer (SCC) is treated primarily with surgery. Rates of 30-day hospital readmission and mortality after surgery for oral cavity SCC are unknown. METHODS We conducted a retrospective analysis of postoperative 30-day unplanned readmission and mortality in patients with oral cavity SCC in the National Cancer Data Base(More)
DNA and RNA are commonly captured on solid substrates during purification and isolation, where they can be transferred to downstream amplification and transcription reactions. When compared to the solution phase, however, immobilized DNA- and RNA-directed reactions are less efficient because of a variety of complex factors. Steric inhibition because of the(More)
In the past, various virtual Frisch-grid designs have been proposed for cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) and other compound semiconductor detectors. These include three-terminal, semi-spherical, CAPture, Frisch-ring, capacitive Frisch-grid and pixel devices (along with their modifications). Among them, the Frisch-grid design employing a noncontacting ring(More)
OBJECTIVE To report rates of cerebrospinal fluid leak, wound infection, and other complications after repair of retrosigmoid craniotomy with hydroxyapatite bone cement. METHODS Retrospective case review at tertiary referral center of patients who underwent retrosigmoid craniotomy from 2013 to 2016 with hydroxyapatite cement cranioplasty. OUTCOME(More)
