PURPOSE As a key component of polycomb-repressive complex 2, enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) represses target genes through histone methylation and is frequently overexpressed and associated with poor prognosis in common carcinomas. For the first time, we reported EZH2 expression and its biological and clinical significance in nasopharyngeal carcinoma(More)
An ectopic salivary gland is different from a branchial cleft fistula, which generally results from heteroplasia within the remnants of the second branchial cleft. Compared to a branchial cleft fistula, surgery for an ectopic salivary gland is relatively simple. This study describes five generations of a family with typical clinical features of ectopic(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe a relatively large series of patients with uncommon malignant lymphoepithelial lesions (MLEL) in the salivary glands, to present treatment-outcome data to support therapeutic decision-making, and to evaluate the incidence of co-occurrence of MLEL and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING Ten patients with MLEL were(More)
In some cases, the fibula osteocutaneous flap may not provide sufficient soft tissue for obliterating dead space after tumor ablation. This report describes a modified fibula osteocutaneous flap using a portion of soleus muscle to reduce postoperative complications. This study analyzed 20 patients who underwent ablative oral cancer surgery with mandibular(More)
The Internet of Things comprises a large number of "smart things" bringing in physical world data that help resolve the challenges (e.g., Environmental pollution) we face every day. With the prevalence of IoT, some platforms emerged (e.g., Xively) on which people are allowed to share or retrieve sensor data and deploy applications. It is, however, a(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the surgical outcome of tympanoplasty for chronic otitis media in post-irradiated patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma. METHODS Nineteen ears were treated in 15 patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma who had undergone radiotherapy in this retrospective clinical series. Only patients with simple perforations of the tympanic(More)
