This study aimed to investigate the clinicopathological factors that influence recurrence and survival in patients who undergo operations for T3–4 hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs). One hundred and five patients who underwent surgery between 2001 and 2008 for advanced hypopharyngeal SCCs were consecutively enrolled and reviewed. The pretreatment neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR; median 3.22, range 0.62–46.50) was associated with disease recurrence and patient survival. A… CONTINUE READING
