Pediatric spinal meningiomas are very rare. Most studies on pediatric spinal meningiomas are case reports with literature reviews. This study presented a surgical series of 14 pediatric patients with histologically proven sporadic spinal meningiomas, including 5 WHO grade II tumors. In this series, there were 9 male and 5 female patients with a mean age of 11.1 years. Seven tumors were located in the cervical spine, 5 in the thoracic spine, and 2 in the lumbar spine. Gross total resection (GTR) of the tumor with a well-demarcated dissection plane was achieved in 11 cases, subtotal resection was achieved in 2 cases, and partial resection was performed in 1 case...

Background: Lymph node metastasis with extranodal extension represents one of the most important adverse prognostic factors for survival in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. We propose that extranodal extension occurs to differing extents. The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic significance of extranodal extension in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. Methods: Two hundred and ninety-eight patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma who underwent surgical resection and neck dissection were included...

AIM: The most frequent recurrence site of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the cervical lymph nodes. The introduction of an electric linear probe for use with ultrasonography in 1996 improved preoperative lateral neck evaluations. Before 2006, however, our hospital routinely performed prophylactic modified neck dissection (p-MND) for N0 or N1a PTCs >1 cm to prevent node recurrence. In 2006, we changed our policy and the indications for p-MND to PTCs >3 cm and/or with significant extrathyroid extension...

Para-aortic lymph node (PALN) dissection is optional and controversial in patients with stage IB1-IIA2 cervical cancer. This retrospective study investigated PALN involvement patterns and evaluated preoperative clinical factors. A total of 723 consecutive FIGO stage IB1-IIA2 cervical cancer patients were included in the study. All patients underwent radical hysterectomy/radical trachelectomy, pelvic lymph node dissection, and PALN dissection. PALN metastasis was found in 101 (14.0%) patients, and the positive PALN rates of stage IB1, IB2, IIA1, and IIA2 were 8...

Cervical lymph node metastasis affects the prognosis and overall survival rate of and therapeutic planning for patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCCs). However, advanced diagnostic modalities still lack accuracy in detecting occult neck metastasis. A sentinel lymph node biopsy is a minimally invasive auxiliary method for assessing the presence of occult metastatic disease in a patient with a clinically negative neck. This technique increases the specificity of neck dissection and thus reduces morbidity among oral cancer patients...

INTRODUCTION: Posterior C1-C2 fusion is a highly successful treatment for atlantoaxial instability and other pathologies of the cervical spine, with fusion rates approaching 95%-100%. However, poor visualization of the lateral masses of C1 secondary to the course of the C2 nerve root along with blood loss from the venous plexus and compression of the C2 nerve from lateral mass screws are technical obstacles that can arise during surgery. Thus, sacrifice of the C2 nerve root has long since been debated in fusions involving the C1 and C2 vertebral bodies...

BACKGROUND: A postintubation tracheoesophageal fistula is a rare complication of a tracheotomy. Surgical repair is the only viable option for these patients, but the repair techniques presented in the literature vary. METHODS: We used a modified tracheal transaction approach to repair 5 cases of nonmalignant tracheoesophageal fistulas. The procedure was performed with a low cervical collar incision, and the trachea was transected directly. All the procedures were only carried out in the surgical field created by tracheostomy and paratracheal and esophageal dissection was no longer necessary...

Indications for vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) therapy include focal, multifocal epilepsy, drop attacks (tonic/atonic seizures), Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC)-related multifocal epilepsy, and unsuccessful resective surgery. Surgical outcome is about 50-60% for seizures control, and may also improve mood, cognition, and memory. On this basis, VNS has also been proposed for the treatment of major depression and Alzheimer's' disease. The vagus nerve stimulator must be implanted with blunt technique on the left side to avoid cardiac side effects through the classic approach for anterior cervical discectomy...
