The clinical usefulness of 2-deoxy-2-[F-18]fluoro-D-glucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is now well-documented. However, its sensitivity is greater than its specificity due to false-positive results in inflammatory or infectious lesions, which are frequent in this area, in particular after(More)
Neuroleptic treatment frequently induces movement disorders, the tardive dyskinesias. These are frequently seen in the orobuccolingual region. Although the beginning of neuroleptic treatment can cause acute dystonia and breathing difficulty, chronic neuroleptic treatment has only rarely been shown to affect the laryngeal musculature. Laryngeal abnormal(More)
This study was performed to establish the swallowing trigger by using the reaction time from an auditory stimulus. With this stable temporal starting point, we described the chronology of the different acoustic, electrophysiologic, and respiratory events that occurred during swallowing in a population of normal adults. We studied the swallowing reaction(More)
For the first time in 1979, it was described by Wang that the infrahyoid musculocutaneous flap (IHMC flap) appears to be extremely suitable for medium-sized head and neck defect. Nevertheless, this flap remains unpopular because of its pretended lack of reliability. The aim of this study is to describe the surgical key points and to expose its main(More)
Our aim was to report our experience in the management of malignant primary and non-primary parotid neoplasms and to compare the clinical presentations, the treatment modalities and the outcomes in these two groups. We performed a retrospective review of the clinical and surgical data contained in patient files. Between January 1995 and December 2004, 60(More)
BACKGROUND Oncogenic mechanisms of human papillomavirus (HPV)-positive oropharyngeal cancer are still poorly characterized. Analysis of their microRNA expression profile might provide valuable information. METHODS The microRNA expression profiles were analyzed by micro-arrays in 26 oropharyngeal cancers. A microRNA signature specific to HPV-status was(More)
