Research paper: Impact on Quality of Life of a Telemedicine System Supporting Head and Neck Cancer Patients: A Controlled Trial During the Postoperative Period at Home
TLDR
A prospective controlled trial evaluating the effects of a telemedicine application on the quality of life of patients with cancer involving the head and neck, using quality ofLife questionnaires that covered 22quality of life parameters. Expand
Metastatic neck disease. Palpation vs ultrasound examination.
TLDR
It was concluded that ultrasound examination with fine-needle aspiration biopsy is an accurate method for assessment of the neck in head and neck oncology. Expand
Rehabilitation outcomes of long‐term survivors treated for head and neck cancer
TLDR
This investigation afforded a unique opportunity for examining similarities and differences among T1 glottic larynx patients, laryngectomy patients, and those who had surgery for cancer of the oral cavity and/or oropharynx along a variety of physical and psychosocial dimensions. Expand
Psychosocial and physical correlates of survival and recurrence in patients with head and neck carcinoma
TLDR
The current study focused on the complex interactions among psychosocial, medical, behavioral, and demographic variables as they relate to prognosis in head and neck carcinoma patients. Expand
Management of infantile subglottic hemangioma: laser vaporization, submucous resection, intubation, or intralesional steroids?
TLDR
Management of subglottic hemangioma in Sophia Children's Hospital is primarily intralesional steroids and intubation and secondarily submucous resection or tracheotomy, where CO2 laser vaporization is seldom applied because of the risk of sub glottic stenosis. Expand
Involving the patient: A prospective study on use, appreciation and effectiveness of an information system in head and neck cancer care
TLDR
The electronic health information support system was used intensively and highly appreciated by H&N cancer patients, and enabled the early detection of occurring health problems that required direct intervention. Expand
Psychosocial and physical correlates of survival and recurrence in patients with head and neck carcinoma: results of a 6-year longitudinal study.
TLDR
The current findings linking physical self-efficacy and prognosis are promising, but clinical trials are necessary to examine the direct and indirect mediational pathways of the variables that underlie physical efficacy and influence survival and recurrence. Expand
Rhinosurgery in children: developmental and surgical aspects of the growing nose
TLDR
A list of guidelines to be considered before starting to perform surgery on the growing midface in children is compiled, based on their observations in animals and a few clinical studies, mostly with small numbers of patients but with a long follow-up. Expand
Rhinosurgery in children: basic concepts.
TLDR
The essential problem in pediatric rhinosurgery is not the age-specific anatomy but the poor wound-healing capacity: fractured or transected septum cartilage will not heal, and disconnected ends tend to overlap, resulting in increasing or recurrent deviations. Expand
The dual role of perichondrium in cartilage wound healing.
TLDR
The results of this experimental in vitro study demonstrate the dual role of perichondrium in cartilage wound healing, on the one hand, the inner layer of the perichONDrium, adjacent to the cartilage, provides (in time) cells for new cartilage formation, while the outer layer rapidly produces fibrous overgrowth, preventing the good cartilage-to-cartilage connection necessary to restore the mechanical function of the structure.
