Imaging is an integral part of head and neck cancer staging and assessing resectability. Accurate perception of imaging information by the clinician is possible only by effective communication between radiologist and surgeon. Traditionally, the radiologist studies the head neck region with two dimensional cross-sectional imaging. The surgeon perceives the head and neck region by real-time experience at surgery as a threedimensional (3D) space. Advances in computed tomography (multidetector CT… Expand
Different Approaches to the Overlapping Infratemporal Fossa and Parapharyngeal Spaces: a Case Series and Review of Literature
TLDR
The case series reported here describes the various approaches to this region and highlights the importance of correct selection of the surgical approach. Expand
Infratemporal fossa surgical approaches to primary/recurrent malignancies of salivary origin: paradigm surgical shift, patient selection, and oncologic outcomes.

TLDR
The current evidence specifically to the surgical management of salivary gland malignancy involving the ITF is sparse, with great difficult identifying treated patients and their details among a heterogeneous group of patients with many lesions. Expand
Should all nasopharyngeal carcinoma with masticator space involvement be staged as T4?
TLDR
Multivariate analysis showed that age, gender, T-/N-classification and the use of chemotherapy were significant prognostic factors for various survival end-points in nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Expand
Auricular Complications in Parotid, Temporal Bone, Infratemporal Fossa, and Lateral Skull Base Surgery
TLDR
Surgeons should remain cognizant of the auricular blood supply while performing surgery via preauricular and postauricular approaches to this area, and identify risk factors associated with the development of this disabling complication. Expand
Should all nasopharyngeal carcinoma with masticator space involvement be staged as T4
TLDR
Multivariate analysis showed that age, gender, T-/N-classification and the use of chemotherapy were significant prognostic factors for various survival endpoints. Expand

  • 2020
TLDR
A select group of patients with T4b oral cancers and less than three masticatory space structures involved had comparable outcomes to those with T3a and T4a cancers after treatment with surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy. Expand
Compartmental Clearance of Infratemporal Fossa for T4b Carcinoma of Buccal Mucosa/Alveolus: Clinical Outcomes
TLDR
Perineural invasion, pathological tumour stage, node positive and ITF tissue involvement were associated with poor oncological outcomes, but ITF clearance is feasible in clinical practice and provides curative option for this group. Expand

This review aims at simplifying the relevant imaging anatomy, guiding the optimal imaging method and highlighting the key imaging findings that influence prognosis and management of oral cavityExpand
Extended Parotid Tumors with Origin in the Parotid Tissue
TLDR
The aim of establishing the origin of the extendedParotid gland tumor is to tailor the treatment according to the known behavior of tumors originating in the parotid tissue and to avoid the danger of under- or overtreatment. Expand
Squamous cell carcinoma of the superior gingivobuccal sulcus: an 11-year institutional experience of 203 cases.
TLDR
Patients with higher stage tumours who underwent infratemporal fossa clearance showed better overall and disease-free survival than those who did not undergo infRatemporal Fossa clearance. Expand

T4b oral cavity cancer below the mandibular notch is resectable with a favorable outcome.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that OSCC patients of infra-notch T4b with pN0-1 and no nerve invasion might have a favorable surgical outcome and significantly higher 5-year loco-regional control and survivals than pN2 patients. Expand
Carotid Body Tumors: Objective Criteria to Predict the Shamblin Group on MR Imaging
TLDR
