OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence and causes of perioperative complications in patients who undergo microvascular free flap procedures for reconstruction of the head and neck. SETTING Academic tertiary care medical center. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 400 consecutive microvascular free flap procedures were performed for reconstruction of the head(More)
Actinomycosis is a rare anaerobic bacterial infection typically caused by Actinomyces israelii. Although part of normal flora in the oral cavity, and respiratory and digestive tracts, A israelii can give rise to pathologic infections most commonly reported in the oral cavity from odontogenic causes. We present a rare case of invasive actinomycosis(More)
Previous experiments have shown that curcumin or cisplatin treatment suppresses growth of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). To study the potential cooperative effect of both agents, two HNSCC cell lines were treated with curcumin or cisplatin alone or in combination. In vivo studies consisted of intravenous tail vein injection of liposomal(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine whether a liposomal formulation of curcumin would suppress the growth of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) cell lines CAL27 and UM-SCC1 in vitro and in vivo. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN HNSCC cell lines were treated with liposomal curcumin at different doses and assayed for in vitro growth suppression(More)
BACKGROUND Sinonasal lymphoma is a rare rhinologic entity. We present a case series and review the literature surrounding the diagnosis and management of this disease. METHODS A pathology database spanning 22 years at a tertiary care center was searched for a diagnosis of lymphoma in the paranasal sinuses or the nasal cavity. Seventeen cases were(More)
AIMS Survey the clinical symptoms, radiological features, management, and long-term outcomes of sinonasal and anterior skull base schwannomas. PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospective review of patients with sinonasal schwannomas treated from June 2001 through January 2010 at two academic institutions. RESULTS There were 4 women and 3 men in this study. The(More)
OBJECTIVES Malignant tumors of the paranasal sinuses are traditionally approached by a variety of external incisions. Recent advances in endoscopic endonasal surgery have allowed for some of these tumors to be treated endoscopically. The purpose of this study was to assess the outcomes and complications of the endoscopic approach in a series of patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine factors predicting the outcome after salvage surgery with microvascular flap reconstruction for recurrent squamous cell cancer (SCC) of the head and neck. STUDY DESIGN This is a retrospective analysis of patients treated at an academic medical center. METHODS One hundred six patients underwent salvage surgery and microvascular(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the incidence of hardware and bone-healing complications in patients who underwent locking mandibular reconstruction plate (LMRP) fixation of vascularized bone grafts for reconstruction of segmental mandibular defects. DESIGN Case series. SETTING Academic tertiary care medical center. PATIENTS One hundred one patients who had(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to create an animal model to study mandibular osteoradionecrosis (ORN) using high-dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy. METHODS Ten Sprague-Dawley male rats were used in this study. Six rats received a single dose of 30 Gy using an HDR remote afterloading machine via a brachytherapy catheter placed along the left(More)
