OBJECTIVES Hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (HPSCC) is an aggressive disease in the head and neck region. Therefore, simple and useful prognostic predictors of HPSCC are needed for clinical practice. This study investigates the prognostic significance of preoperative neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in patients with HPSCC who received radical resections. METHODS Retrospective review was conducted on medical records at a tertiary referral hospital involving 146 consecutive patients… CONTINUE READING
