OBJECTIVE: To compare incidence, stage, and survival of upper aerodigestive tract (UADT) cancers in patients with and without chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). DESIGN: Inception cohort. SETTING: National database. PATIENTS: Individuals with CLL and UADT cancers included in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Incidence was compared by computing standardized incidence ratio (SIR), the ratio of observed UADT cancers in patients with CLL, and the number of UADT cancers expected based on the characteristics of patients with CLL and population incidence of UADT cancers...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether the human papillomavirus (HPV) status of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCCs) can be reliably predicted based on sociodemographic and disease characteristics alone. DESIGN A retrospective medical chart review of clinical and pathologic features. SETTING: Tertiary academic medical center. PATIENTS: We studied patients treated for HNSCC who were tested for markers of HPV or had tissue available for testing between 2006 and 2010...

OBJECTIVE: To determine factors predicting whether patients with single-sided deafness (SSD) opt for a bone conduction device (BCD) for the contralateral routing of sound (CROS) after a regular trial with a BCD on a headband. DESIGN: Retrospective case-control study. SETTING: Nijmegen, the Netherlands. PATIENTS: Thirty consecutive patients with SSD. INTERVENTIONS: Patients received a trial with a BCD headband as part of the regular workup for SSD...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether patients treated with laryngectomy had less comorbidity than those treated with chemoradiation, which could help explain the improved survival for the laryngectomy cohorts in recent studies. DESIGN: Observational cross-sectional study. PATIENTS: Patients receiving diagnoses of primary invasive advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the larynx between 2003 and 2008 were selected from the National Cancer Database, which collects information from more than 1400 facilities accredited by the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer...
