AIM The aim of this study is to explore the relationship between the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and clinicopathological features in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). METHODS We performed an analysis of 843 patients, including 321 patients with PTC, 83 patients with thyroid adenoma and 439 patients with nodular goiter (NG).(More)
Oncological resection of advanced carcinoma in the head and neck region results in vast defects. The free latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flap (FLDMF) is one of the most commonly used flaps for the repair of complex head and neck defects. We tried to modify FLDMF to multiple segments or combine it with acellular dermis to fit through-and-through defects(More)
AIM This study investigated the value of gastric tube during surgery for advanced hypopharyngeal and cervical esophageal cancer. METHOD From November 2007 to December 2012, 42 patients underwent total pharyngo-laryngo-esophagectomy because of advanced hypopharyngeal or cervical esophageal cancer and were reconstructed with a gastric tube. Clinical(More)
PURPOSE To gauge the dosimetric impact of segmentation differences amongst experts and an automated system for intracranial organs at risk in the presence of large space-occupying lesions being treated with IMRT. METHODS Eight expert raters and a single automated system were used to segment normal tissues of the brain using MR and CT for 20 patients. The(More)
Application of free flap is one of the important repair means in head and neck surgery. A variety of free flaps, such as anterolateral thigh flap, have showed unique advantages in repair for tissue defects after resection of head and neck tumor, and have became increasing popularity. Lateral arm flee flap is an important repair means in plastic surgery,(More)
The "Cancer Immunoediting" concept has provided critical insights suggesting dual functions of immune system during the cancer initiation and development. However, the dynamics and roles of CD4(+) and CD8(+) T cells, CD19(+) B cells, and CD56(+) NK cells in the patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma during treatment remain unclear. A total of 43(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the value of free latissimus dorsimyocutaneous flap in repairing severe defect of head and neck after resection of tumor. METHODS Free latissimus dorsimyocutaneous flap was used to repair defect after resection of tumor in 12 patients (13 sides) with head and neck tumors. Of them 2 cases underwent radical radiotherapy before(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the benefits of CT angiography (CTA) in preoperative mapping of anterolateral thigh perforator flap (ALTPF) for reconstruction of defect after head and neck cancer resection. METHODS Twenty-four patients underwent reconstruction of postoperative defect with ALTPF from March 2011 to March 2014 were retrospectively reviewed. According(More)
