Preoperative lymph node screening of all neck compartments is favored by clinicians for the management of the neck. The presence of a metastatic node on one side of the neck reduces the 5-year survival rate to 50%, and the presence of a metastatic node on both sides of the neck reduces the 5-year survival rate to 25%. This study compared the evaluation of(More)
INTRODUCTION The worldwide incidence of colorectal cancer has increased rapidly in the past few decades and dietary habits have been implicated in the cause. Though the Indian diet varies substantially from western diet, there have not been detailed studies on any association. MATERIALS AND METHODS This is hospital based case control study enrolling 108(More)
Invasion of thyroid gland (TG) by laryngeal cancer is rare. However, ipsilateral hemithyroidectomy is routinely performed during total laryngectomy (TL) for laryngeal cancers. Even hemithyroidectomies are associated with hypothyroidism in 23-63% and hypoparathyroidism in 25-52%. Most of the studies on laryngectomy have advised thyroidectomy for T3 and T4(More)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the 3'-UTR region are emerging cis-regulatory factors associated with the occurrences of several human diseases. SH3GL2, which is located at chromosome 9p21-22, is associated with hyperplastic/mildly dysplastic lesions of the head and neck and has a long 3'-UTR with multiple SNPs. The aim of the present study was to(More)
BACKGROUND One-third of infants with persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) do not respond to inhaled nitric oxide (iNO). If iNO is not delivered to the pulmonary vasculature because of parenchymal lung disease, it cannot interact with hemoglobin to form methemoglobin (MHb). OBJECTIVE To study the correlation between oxygenation response(More)
Internal jugular vein duplication (IJVD) is a rare phenomenon. Twenty-one such instances in 18 individuals have been reported to date. We report an intra-operative case of unilateral IJVD in a 32-year-old male, who was operated for cancer of gingivobuccal sulcus. We have reviewed the published literature and have proposed a classification scheme in order to(More)
BACKGROUND The number of lymph node retrieved in the surgical specimen is important for tumor staging and has paramount impact on prognosis in colorectal cancer and imitates the adequacy of lymph node surgical clearance. The paucity of lymph node yields in patients undergoing resection after preoperative chemo radiotherapy (CRT) in rectal cancer has seen.(More)
Neck dissection leaves behind an aesthetically unacceptable scar over front of the neck. Various techniques, both endoscopic and robotic, have been tried to avoid this scar. Though comparatively more cases of robotic surgery are reported than endoscopic neck dissection, the cost and availability of robot precludes many patients from getting the benefit of(More)
