CONTEXT In view of low incidence of contralateral nodal metastasis and increase in the morbidity, the opposite neck is not routinely addressed. However, contralateral nodal metastasis is seen frequently in a certain group of patients. Identifying those factors associated with higher chances of contralateral nodal metastasis may help in optimizing the(More)
Head neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCCs) are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality all around the world. Just like tobacco and alcohol, Human papilloma virus (HPV) infection is now recognized to play a role in the pathogenesis of a subset of HNSCCs. Unprotected sexual behaviours with the HPV carrier plays an important role in transmission of(More)
INTRODUCTION Despite meticulous surgery and proper adjuvant treatment, outcome of oral squamous cell carcinoma remains unpredictable. This shows that there may be other factors which should be considered while prognosticating these patients. Many a times there is spread of disease beyond the gross margin which can alter the margin status. We hypothesized(More)
OBJECTIVE Surgical margin status is an important prognostic factor in oral squamous cell carcinoma. The primary aim of the surgeon is to achieve a microscopically complete surgical resection during initial surgery. As there are no definite guidelines, a few surgeons use frozen section (FS) for margin assessment whereas others use gross examination (GE). (More)
BACKGROUND The submandibular gland is responsible for 70% to 90% of unstimulated saliva production. Its excision causes a decrease in basal salivary flow resulting in increased symptoms of subjective xerostomia and decreased quality of life. In this study, we have tried to assess the pattern of nodal metastasis in relation to the submandibular gland. With(More)
