OBJECTIVE To obtain completely negative margins of 1 to 5 mm at the time of surgery for oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma by using a Mohs-like technique. STUDY DESIGN Case series of 12 patients (4 T1, 5 T2, 2 T3, 1 T4) and a review of the literature. RESULTS For the first six cases, complete, colored for precise orientation, frozen margins of high(More)
OBJECTIVE Positive margins for squamous cell carcinoma of the oral tongue on final pathology are a poor prognostic factor associated with a higher likelihood of local recurrence. Obtaining margin status in a relatively short time by using complete frozen sections, such as Mohs margins for skin cancer, would lower the recurrence rate. The goal of this study(More)
OBJECTIVE To find predictors of a difficult intubation in infants with an isolated or a syndromic cleft lip/palate. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective review: single-blind trial. SETTINGS Tertiary care centre. METHODS A total of 145 infants born with cleft lip/palate were enrolled. Three clinical and seven lip/palate anatomic parameters were evaluated. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if there are any differences in size between isolated cleft palates (CPs) and those associated with Pierre Robin (PR) sequence. STUDY DESIGN Prospective case series. SETTINGS Tertiary care hospital. SUBJECTS AND METHODS From 1993 to 2011, nonsyndromic isolated CP and PR sequence cases were classified as severe if the patients(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To find an anatomical measurement of the cleft palate (or a calculated parameter) that predicts the occurrence of velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI) after palatal cleft repair. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. METHODS Charts were reviewed from cleft palate patients who underwent palatoplasty by the Von Langenbeck technique(More)
