OBJECTIVES To investigate the most important factors affecting the prognosis of the patients with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the larynx. METHODS Based on the clinical and follow-up data, 205 patients with SCC of the larynx receiving total laryngectomy, partial laryngectomy, or CO2 laser surgery in GuangDong General Hospital were retrospectively(More)
The study aimed to compare the survival rate and functional outcome of supracricoid partial laryngectomy cricohyoidoepiglottopexy (SCPL-CHEP) and vertical partial laryngectomy (VPL) in the treatment of glottic carcinoma. Thirty-nine patients underwent SCPL-CHEP and 45 patients underwent VPL between 2002 and 2007. Post-operative clinical staging were(More)
BACKGROUND This study evaluates the feasibility of endoscope-assisted second branchial cleft cyst resection via retroauricular approach by comparing it with conventional cervical incision for removal of second branchial cleft cyst. METHODS From January 2009 to December 2010, 25 patients were randomly assigned to the endoscope-assisted surgery group (13(More)
Abnormal expression of micro-ribonucleic acid (miRNA) might be clinically valuable as a biomarker or treatment target in the early diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of tumors. However, little is known concerning abnormal miRNA expression of laryngeal carcinoma, one of the most commonly encountered head and neck tumors. Microarray analysis was used to(More)
Neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been shown to be associated with prognosis in various solid tumors. This study aimed to evaluate the prognostic role of NLR in patients with laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). A total of 141 LSCC patients were retrospectively reviewed. Patients’ demographics were analyzed along with clinical and pathologic data.(More)
PURPOSE This meta-analysis compared the efficacy of laryngectomy and three larynx-preservation treatments in patients with advanced laryngeal cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Medline, Cochrane, EMBASE and Google Scholar databases were searched (until May 5, 2014) for studies that evaluated total laryngectomy followed by radiation and three larynx-preserving(More)
OBJECTIVE To discuss the anatomic features, clinical presentations, diagnosis, differentiations and treatments of congenital fourth branchial anomaly(CFBA). METHODS The clinical data of 8 patients with CFBA were retrospectively analyzed. RESULTS Of the 8 patients aging from 27 to 300 months (median age: 114 months), 4 male and 4 female; 3 untreated(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the feasibility, the risks and the advantages of endoscope-assisted submandibular gland resection using a retroauricular hairline incision (RAHI) by comparing it with the conventional submandibular gland resection. METHODS Twenty eight patients with benign lesions of the submandibular gland were included in the prospective clinically(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the long-term outcome of CO₂ laser microsurgery for laryngeal cancer. METHODS Seventy patients with laryngeal cancer were treated with CO₂ laser microsurgery. All patients were followed up for at least 36 months (36 - 108 months). RESULTS During the 36-108 months follow-up, 64 patients were alive, and 6 patients died of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the link between the antitumor efficacy of sorafenib and its cutaneous side effects in advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the incidence of hand-foot skin reactions (HFRS) of 51 patients with advanced HCC who treated by sorafenib combined with transcatheter arterial chemoembolization(More)
