Hypothesis: To define the role of surgical staging in limited (T1‐2, N0‐1) oropharyngeal squamous cell cancers. 

Primary surgical treatment of T2 oropharyngeal carcinoma

The aim of this study is to analyze the outcome of primary surgical management of T2 cancers of the oropharynx in patients with confirmed or suspected Oropharyngeal carcinoma.

Oncologic outcomes of surgically treated early‐stage oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma

The purpose of this study was to characterize oncologic outcomes in early and intermediate oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) after surgery.

Prognostic factors in limited (T1–2, N0–1) oropharyngeal carcinoma treated with surgery ± adjuvant therapy

The purpose of this study was to identify prognostic factors that worsen the outcome of limited oropharyngeal carcinoma treated with surgery ± adjuvant therapy.

Surgical management of T1 oropharyngeal carcinoma

The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of primary transoral surgery in the management of T1 oropharyngeal carcinoma.

Conventional transoral surgery for stage I–II squamous cell carcinoma of the tonsillar region

The purpose of this study was to review the results of conventional transoral resection and neck dissection for stage I to II squamous carcinoma of the tonsillar region.

Management of the “Violated Neck” in the era of chemoradiation

To determine if patients who have undergone an open neck biopsy (a “violated” neck) have improved disease control and survival with completion neck dissection.

Management of advanced carcinoma of the base of tongue

This study aims to evaluate the experience of a single head and neck oncology center in the management of advanced stage base‐of‐tongue cancer.

Lateral pharyngotomy for selected invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the lateral oropharynx. Part II: When and why

To analyze local failure following lateral pharyngotomy for selected untreated invasive squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the lateral oropharynx, a single lesion is analyzed for each patient selected for SCC treatment.

Outcome of patients with early T1 and T2 squamous cell carcinoma of the base of tongue managed by conventional surgery with adjuvant postoperative radiation

The aim was to report the experience in conventional surgical management with particular focus on T1/T2 tumors, which may be candidates for minimally invasive techniques.

Lateral pharyngotomy for selected invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the lateral oropharynx—part I: How

To revisit the surgical technique of lateral pharyngotomy in patients with selected, isolated, and untreated invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the lateral oropharynx. To describe postoperative

The management of tonsil carcinoma has gradually evolved such that the literature is replete with outcome summaries of this disease treated with primary RT and chemotherapy. Recently there have been

An Analysis of Surgical Complications, Morbidity, and Cost Calculation in Patients Undergoing Multimodal Treatment for Operable Oropharyngeal Carcinoma

Tumor control and survival are considered the most important measures of treatment efficacy for patients with primary oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma and multimodal treatment protocols should be judged by their complication rates, morbidity, and therapy costs.

Surgeons have been using selective neck dissections in the treatment of squamous carcinoma of the upper aerodigestive tract for over 20 years. To date, no data is available that can answer the

Conservation surgery in the management of T1 and T2 oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma: the Birmingham UK experience.

Results show that conservation surgery techniques are effective in the treatment of T1 and T2 oropharyngeal squamous carcinoma associated with significant metastatic neck disease and do not have a negative impact on the patients quality of life in either the immediate postoperative period or up to 4 years post-treatment.

Tongue and tonsil carcinoma

The objective of the current study was to explore the trends in both oral cavity and pharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in younger U.S. populations, in particular tongue and tonsillar SCC.

Distribution and impact of lymph node metastases in oropharyngeal cancer

In the treatment of oropharyngeal cancers, possible metastases to retropharynGEal lymph nodes (RPLNs) should be taken into account, especially in tumors arising in the lateral wall and/or posterior wall, and there was no significant difference between the survival rates of patients with and without RPLN metastases.
