This review article will provide a brief overview of the link between inflammation, endothelial dysfunction, and atherosclerosis and will begin highlighting emerging inflammatory mediators of endothelial cell (EC) activation, a discussion that will be continued in Part 2.
Radiotherapy versus transoral robotic surgery and neck dissection for oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (ORATOR): an open-label, phase 2, randomised trial.
Defining the nasopalatine line: The limit for endonasal surgery of the spine
The expanded endoscopic endonasal approach to the odontoid process is performed for decompression of the brainstem and to access tumors at the foramen magnum to define the line connecting these two points as the nasopalatine line (NPL) and the nasalatine angle (NPA).

This is the first study evaluating the clinical assessment of tumor thickness in comparison to radiographic interpretation in oral cavity cancer and there are strong correlations between pathological, radiological, and clinical measurements in deep tumors (≥5 mm).

A decision-tree model of total thyroidectomy is created to analyze the cost-effectiveness of universal IONM vs selective IonM vs visual identification only of the recurrent laryngeal nerve, and visual identification of the RLN is more cost-effective than any use of IONm.

It seems that the morphology of the Carhart notch is variable and is not exclusively at 2 kHz as originally described, and the increased prevalence of 0.5-kHz notches in individuals with a persistent air-bone gap may be indicative of other middle ear pathology such as incus or malleus fixation.
Nasal morbidity following endoscopic skull base surgery: A prospective cohort study
Nasal morbidity following skull base surgery necessitates follow‐up for postoperative care. We describe nasal morbidity following endoscopic skull base surgery.
Salvage surgery for locally recurrent oropharyngeal cancer
The purpose of this study was to determine the success rate of salvage surgery for locally recurrent oropharyngeal cancer and factors influencing the outcome, including p16 status.
Endonasal endoscopic surgery for squamous cell carcinoma of the sinonasal cavities and skull base: Oncologic outcomes based on treatment strategy and tumor etiology
Oncologic outcomes for sinonasal and skull base squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) treated with an endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) needs investigation.
