The prognostic and staging implications of bone invasion in oral squamous cell carcinoma
A study was undertaken to determine whether bone invasion is an independent prognostic factor in oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) after taking into account the extent of bone invasion.
Nodal yield and survival in oral squamous cancer
TLDR
The authors aimed to determine whether the extent of lymphadenectomy, as defined by nodal yield, is a prognostic factor in this setting. Expand
Prospective evaluation of quality of life and nutrition before and after treatment for nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
TLDR
Quality of life and functional assessment should be important end points in the follow-up of patients with nasopharyngeal cancer who receive chemoradiotherapy, and the need for ongoing support and rehabilitation in a multidisciplinary setting is supported. Expand
Implications for clinical staging of metastatic cutaneous squamous carcinoma of the head and neck based on a multicenter study of treatment outcomes
TLDR
A new staging system that may provide better discrimination between patient groups is tested for metastatic skin carcinoma in patients with cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma. Expand
Lymph node ratio as an independent prognostic factor in oral squamous cell carcinoma
TLDR
The lymph node ratio (LNR) is validated as an independent prognostic factor in oral squamous cell carcinoma and its utility with the current nodal staging system is compared. Expand
The Prognostic Impact of Extent of Bone Invasion and Extent of Bone Resection in Oral Carcinoma
TLDR
The objective of this study was to assess the effect that extent of bone invasion has on recurrence and survival in patients treated with marginal and segmental mandible resection. Expand
Predicting the prognosis of oral squamous cell carcinoma after first recurrence.
TLDR
Initial combined-modality treatment and shorter time to recurrence were associated with worse outcome, while the effect of site of recurrence (local vs regional) was dependent on an interaction with the time to Recurrence. Expand
Effectiveness of selective neck dissection in the treatment of the clinically positive neck
TLDR
Patients treated with therapeutic selective neck dissection for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma were oncologically disadvantaged compared with those having comprehensive procedures. Expand
INTEGRATION OF PROSPECTIVE QUALITY OF LIFE AND NUTRITIONAL ASSESSMENT AS ROUTINE COMPONENTS OF MULTIDISCIPLINARY CARE OF PATIENTS WITH HEAD AND NECK CANCER
Background:  Quality of life (QOL) and nutritional assessment of patients with head and neck cancer can provide additional information about the effects of treatment beyond the standard measures ofExpand
Prognostic implications of lymph node yield and lymph node ratio in papillary thyroid carcinoma.
TLDR
The LNR is an important independent prognostic factor in PTC and can be used in conjunction with existing staging systems and a clinical relevant cut-off point of 0.3 (one positive lymph node out of three total) is proposed. Expand
