  • Following failure of chemoradiotherapy (CRT) for advanced staged oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas (OPSCC), residual tumor can often be treated successfully with salvage surgery, if detected early. Current clinical practice in the VU University Medical Center is to perform routine response evaluation, i.e., examination under general anesthesia (EUA), 12 weeks after treatment. However, in the Netherlands there is no consensus on response evaluation in patients with advanced oropharyngeal… CONTINUE READING
