An adenoid cystic carcinoma (AdCC) of the ceruminous glands is very rare; its diagnosis is most often challenging, and simple biopsies may be misleading. Our paper describes a case of a circumferential mass of the left ear canal that was initially reported as a basal cell carcinoma on biopsies in the clinic and on frozen sections intraoperatively. The final pathology was an AdCC of the ceruminous glands of the external auditory canal. Our case reflects the difficulty in the diagnosis of an AdCC of the ceruminous gland and the importance of keeping broad differential diagnoses in mind when counseling patients with masses in the ear canals until final pathology is obtained...

BACKGROUND: Perineural invasion (PNI) and lymphovascular invasion (LVI) are known to be poor prognostic indicators in primary surgery. The purpose of this study was to determine their impact on survival in the setting of salvage laryngectomy. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of patients who underwent salvage laryngectomy between 2006 and 2014. RESULTS: Seventy-eight patients were included in this study; PNI was diagnosed in 48 patients (61...

PURPOSE: To assess for the differences in patients undergoing tracheostomy by the otolaryngology consult service versus other specialties. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A series of 1035 tracheostomies performed at our institution from January 2013 through November 2015 was retrospectively reviewed. Patient-related factors that contribute to procedural difficulty were reviewed. RESULTS: 805 consecutive tracheostomies were included. Otolaryngology performed 176/805 (21...

The objective of this manuscript is to review a single institution's experience with superficial or total parotidectomy in outpatient and observation/inpatient groups. All patients who underwent superficial or total parotidectomy between 2009 and 2015 were identified. Patients were excluded if they had undergone concurrent surgery such as neck dissection, had prior radiation treatment or surgery at the operative site. Main outcomes were perioperative complications in both groups. 215 consecutive patients were included in the study, 116 (54%) patients in the inpatient group and 99 (46%) in the outpatient group...

The goal of this study was to identify associations between positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) in patients presenting with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) with tumor site, size, histologic differentiation, smoking, and diabetes. Charts of patients with oropharyngeal and laryngeal SCC who underwent (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose PET/CT scans were reviewed between May 2007 and August 2013. Statistical analyses included modeling log-transformed SUVmax values by tumor site, size, histologic differentiation, smoking status, and diabetes using unadjusted linear regressions...

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...
