Transoral robotic surgery (TORS) is a fascinating new technique that has been proved to be a safe and feasible for selected oropharyngeal cancers. Furthermore, TORS offers several advantages in the treatment of locoregionally advanced cancers. Nevertheless, the careful selection of patients is the keypoint for a successful application of this therapeutic modality. However, the reconstruction of large oropharyngeal defects is challenging due to the restoration of velopharyngeal competency and swallowing. Moreover, the absence of mandibular splitting increases the difficulties faced by reconstructive surgeons...

Fishbones are of particular interest to otolaryngologists. Most fishbones can be removed transorally or via endoscopic guidance. Transcervical neck exploration is occasionally necessary, especially in cases of an embedded foreign body. Computed tomography is the most sensitive and specific imaging modality for identifying embedded fishbones. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a laryngeal foreign body embedded in the paraglottic space that was removed using an open approach via a lateral thyroid cartilage window...

Since a few years, the transoral robotic surgery reduced the morbidity of oropharyngeal tumors excision. Large posterior tumors can now be removed without any scar visible on the face. In this context and to respect the thinness required for reconstructions at the junction of the upper aerodigestive tract, the free radial forearm flap still remains the solution of choice. However, if the transoral robotic surgery respects the anatomy and the aesthetics of patients at the visible and social area that represents the face, the forearm flap provides visible scars on the other region of social interaction that represents the upper limb...

Transoral submandibular duct sialolith removal is a simple technique with very few complications. Nevertheless, following this procedure, we have observed long-term calculus recurrence in a number of patients. We therefore elected to evaluate these cases. This was a monocentric prospective study performed between November 2013 and June 2014. All patients received surgery for submandibular gland lithiasis by intraoral removal of submandibular duct calculi. Between the day following the procedure and 3 months postsurgery, these patients systematically underwent an ultrasound examination of the submandibular gland...

Transoral robotic surgery (TORS) is a technique used to treat oral, throat, and skull base cancers using a minimally invasive robotic approach through the mouth and throat. The TORS procedure allows deeper access and dissection of suspicious lesions and neoplastic growths in the oral cavity and those that extend from the throat to the base of the skull. Robotic surgery allows the surgeon to operate in tight spaces without a large open incision. This article discusses symptoms and risk factors of oral, throat, and skull base cancers; types of procedures that can be performed using the TORS approach; specialized instrumentation; patient selection; surgical advantages and disadvantages; patient benefits; and the role of the surgical team in preparing to intraoperatively care for the TORS patient...
