Knowledge of tissue blood flow (BF) changes after free tissue transfer may enable surgeons to predict the failure of flap thrombosis at an early stage. This study used our recently developed noncontact diffuse correlation spectroscopy to monitor dynamic BF changes in free flaps without getting in contact with the targeted tissue. Eight free flaps were elevated in patients with head and neck cancer; one of the flaps failed. Multiple BF measurements probing the transferred tissue were performed during and post the surgical operation...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to analyze the pattern of occult cervical lymph node metastasis among patients with clinically N0 salivary gland carcinoma. METHODS: One hundred nineteen patients underwent primary surgery and ipsilateral neck dissection for clinically N0 carcinomas of the major and minor salivary glands. Eighty patients (67%) had parotid tumors. Distribution of T classification was: T1 (18%), T2 (28%), T3 (23%), and T4 (32%). RESULTS: Twenty-five patients (21%) had pathological cervical disease...

OBJECTIVE: To examine outcomes among patients treated for sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma (SNUC) of the head and neck. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review. METHODS: The records of 16 consecutive patients with newly diagnosed, non-metastatic SNUC were analyzed. Initial treatment consisted of: surgery alone (6 patients), surgery with post-operative chemoradiotherapy (4 patients), and primary radiation therapy with concurrent chemotherapy (6 patients)...

Recent studies lead to the conclusion that focused attention, through the activity of corticofugal and medial olivocochlear (MOC) efferent pathways, modulates activity at the most peripheral aspects of the auditory system within the cochlea. In two experiments, we investigated the effects of different intermodal attention manipulations on the response of outer hair cells (OHCs), and the control exerted by the MOC efferent system. The effect of the MOCs on OHC activity was characterized by measuring the amplitude and rapid adaptation time course of distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs)...

BACKGROUND: Nasal polyposis represents the end point of multiple inflammatory pathways and controversy continues as to the exact roles of medical and surgical approaches in the management of nasal polyposis. METHODS: A combination of both is often required to manage polyps adequately with surgery and intranasal steroids remaining the mainstay of therapy. RESULTS: Fortunately, new technological advances are making surgery safer and more efficient...

Lemierre syndrome is a potentially fatal condition after an oropharyngeal infection. It is characterized by thrombophlebitis of head and neck veins with systemic dissemination of septic emboli. The most frequently isolated pathogen is Fusobacterium necrophorum. We report an unusual case of Lemierre syndrome in a 4-year-old child caused by Staphylococcus aureus, with multivisceral emboli to the brain, orbits, lungs, and heart valves. We also discuss its atypical clinical presentation, the crucial role of imaging in the early diagnosis, and the different treatment modalities of this life-threatening syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Routine calcium and vitamin D administration and routine autotransplantation of parathyroid glands can prevent hypocalcemia after total thyroidectomy. METHODS: Routine autotransplantation of 1 or more parathyroid glands and oral calcium and vitamin D supplementation was used in 252 patients. RESULTS: One, 2, or 3 parathyroid glands were autotransplanted in 223, 27, and 2 patients, respectively. Routine oral calcium and vitamin D was administered in postoperative period in all patients...

INTRODUCTION: Jejunal diverticulitis is a rare cause of acute abdomen and is diagnosed preoperatively only infrequently. CASE: A 34-year-old man presented with a history of increasing nonradiating epigastric and left upper abdominal pain and with fever, constipation, nausea and vomiting. His white blood cell count was 18,300/mm(3). Liver function tests and pancreatic enzymes were in the normal range. An abdominal CT scan showed jejunal diverticulitis and bubble gases in the extraluminal space...

The non-recurrent inferior laryngeal nerve (NRILN) is a nerve anomaly that can be associated with an increased risk of vocal fold paralysis. The purpose of this study was to report three new cases of this anomaly, underline the necessity of recognizing its possibility for the prevention of intra-operative nerve damage and a review of the literature. Three cases of thyroid surgery associated with right NRILN are reported. Two patients underwent bilateral thyroidectomy for a multinodular goitre and for a toxic multinodular goitre respectively...
