Stratification of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) based on HPV16 DNA and RNA status, gene expression patterns, and mutated candidate genes may facilitate patient treatment decision. We characterize head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) with different HPV16 DNA and RNA (E6*I) status from 290 consecutively recruited patients by gene(More)
Eine 40-jährige Frau wurde von ihrem Stomatologen aufgrund eines Zufallsbefundes im Rahmen des zahnärztlichen Röntgens vorgestellt. In den vorliegenden Panoramaaufnahmen (Orthopantomogramm) hatte sich eine unklare radioopake Läsion im Bereich der linken Kieferhöhle in Projektion auf den Processus alveolaris, die untere mediale Kieferhöhlenwand und z. T. auf(More)
The main purpose of this study was to analyse the reactions of a panel (non-cleft adults) when observing cleft lip morphology. Although rehabilitation of cleft lip and palate is improving, there are still indications of social rejection of cleft patients by the people around them. Polarity profiles have been used since 1973 to measure social distance with(More)
Tracheostomy is a common procedure in head and neck surgery and emergency medicine to secure a patent airway. Surgeons should always be aware of anatomical variants of the branches of the aortic arch, which could lead to life-threatening complications. Open tracheostomy is the safest emergency procedure.
BACKGROUND Sinonasal inverted papilloma is a locally aggressive tumor arising from the Schneiderian membrane which lines the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses. Aggressive surgical approaches, such as lateral rhinotomy, were used until recently for complete removal of the inverted papilloma. Currently, endoscopic resection is the gold standard in the(More)
Die Operation nach Caldwell u. Luc beinhaltet die Entfernung der Kieferhöhlenschleimhaut und die Anlage eines Drainagefensters zum unteren Nasengang. Häufige Folgezustände sind Schmerzen und chronisch rezidivierende Entzündungen bei erheblicher Volumenabnahme des Sinus. Eine mögliche Therapieoption ist in schweren Fällen die Oberkieferteilresektion mit(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate static and dynamic infrared (IR) thermography for intra- and postoperative free-flap monitoring following oropharyngeal reconstruction. Sixteen patients with oropharyngeal reconstruction by free radial forearm flap were included in this prospective, clinical study (05/2013–08/2014). Prior (“intraop_pre”) and following(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the frequencies of lower eyelid complications after subciliary versus transconjunctival approaches to orbital floor fractures. The investigators implemented a retrospective cohort study and enrolled a sample composed of subjects who had orbital floor repair. The predictor variable was surgical approach, classified as(More)
Osteocalcin is a noncollagenous protein produced by osteoblasts and odontoblasts. It is used as a marker for bone formation in regenerative medical approaches. In addition, serum levels in humans are used to indicate bone turnover. Expression is usually determined by real-time reverse transcription PCR. Analysis of sequence data revealed that the frequently(More)
