Developments in technology have led to a rapid progress in robotic endocrine surgery applications. With the advent of minimally invasive techniques in thyroid surgery, robot-assisted transaxillary thyroid surgery (RATS) has emerged as one of the most promising approaches. Its main advantages are improved cosmetic outcome, avoiding cervical incisions,(More)
BACKGROUND Solid organ recipients are at an increased risk of developing various malignancies. We investigated the incidence, clinical features, and outcome of patients diagnosed with head and neck cancer after organ transplantation. METHODS A retrospective analysis was undertaken of patients who underwent solid organ transplantation (kidney, liver, lung,(More)
This study aimed at clarifying further the clinical behavior of early glottic cancer following transoral laser surgery and to determine, using retrospective analysis, whether the site of tumor involvement along the vocal fold has prognostic significance. The study included all patients treated with transoral laser surgery, for early glottic cancer(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Despite advances in radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments for head and neck cancers, the local failure rate is high. In most radiotherapy-resistant cases, surgery is performed; however, some cases are considered unresectable. No standard treatment for these situations has been established. In this study, we review our experience(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS During robot-assisted transaxillary thyroidectomy, the patient's arm is maintained in an overhead flexed position for a prolonged time, which poses a risk of postoperative brachial plexopathy. The aim of the study was to identify the causes of brachial plexopathy and to assess the benefit of intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring(More)

AIMS To review the experience of a single-center with RATS and to assess its outcome, feasibility and safety. BACKGROUND With the advent of minimally invasive techniquesin thyroid surgery, robot-assisted transaxillary thyroid surgery (RATS) has become one of the most popular approaches. Its main advantages are improved cosmetic outcome, thereby increasing(More)
