PURPOSE CD4(+) T cells play a central role in initiating and maintaining anticancer immune responses. However, regulatory CD4(+)CD25(+) T cells which express Foxp3 have also been shown to inhibit antitumor effector T cells. In view of these heterogeneous CD4(+) T-cell populations, this study was designed to determine the prognostic value of various(More)
A retrospective analysis of the medical records and operative files of 124 patients who consecutively underwent supracricoid partial laryngectomy with cricohyoidopexy (SCPL-CHP) was undertaken. The objective of this study was to analyze the postoperative course and functional results of SCPL-CHP. The mean duration of follow-up was 7 years (range 1 to 20(More)
Matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) 1 and 3 genes play an important role in initiating tumor growth and promoting cell spread. Since MMP1 and MMP3 transcription levels can be modulated by promoter polymorphism, we investigated the impact of different genotypes on the occurrence of head and neck cancer in a Caucasian case control study. DNA was extracted from 126(More)
The partial horizontal supracricoid laryngectomy with cricohyoidopexy consists of resection of the whole thyroid cartilage and paraglottic space, as well as the epiglottis and the whole pre-epiglottic space. The cricoid cartilage, the hyoid bone, and at least one arytenoid cartilage are spared. Sixty-eight patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the(More)
We present a review of the postoperative course, complications, and functional outcome of 190 patients consecutively treated with supracricoid partial laryngectomy with cricohyoidoepiglottopexy. The average times until removal of the tracheostomy and nasogastric feeding tubes were 9 and 16 days, respectively. The postoperative mortality rate was 1%. Major(More)
One hundred Provox voice prostheses consecutively inserted in 37 patients and replaced only when phonation was impaired or complications noted were analyzed for in situ lifetime, causes for replacement, and complications. The mean in situ lifetime was 311 days. Actuarial analysis (Kaplan-Meier method) of the in situ lifetime revealed that 65.9%, 23.7%, and(More)
The partial horizontal supracricoid laryngectomy with cricohyoidoepiglottopexy consists of resection of the whole thyroid cartilage and paraglottic space. The cricoid cartilage, the hyoid bone, most of the epiglottis, and at least one arytenoid cartilage are conserved. Thirty-six patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the glottis who underwent this(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the incidence of local and regional failure, distant metastasis, and overall survival following transoral lateral oropharyngectomy (TLO) and to determine factors associated with local recurrence. DESIGN Retrospective case series throughout 20 years; mean follow-up of 10 years. SETTING Academic center. PATIENTS A total of 166(More)
Since it was first described, the original percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) technique has proved to be a valuable adjunct in patients with head and neck tumours. This procedure is being increasingly utilized in the face of swallowing impairment related to head and neck carcinoma. Although generally well tolerated, it may be associated with(More)
A 25-year experience with total conservative parotidectomy for primary benign pleomorphic adenoma (PBPA) of the parotid gland in a consecutive series of 229 patients has been reviewed. This study focuses on survival, morbidity, PBPA recurrence, postoperative facial nerve dysfunction, and Frey's syndrome. Surgical death was never encountered in this study.(More)
