BACKGROUND: Ameloblastoma represents the most common epithelial odontogenic tumor. Because of the proximity of the maxillary tumors to the orbit and skull base, it should be managed as radically as possible. Maxillectomy mainly via the transfacial or transoral approach represents the most common type of surgical procedure. Drawback of these approaches is limited control of the superiomedial extent of the tumour in the paranasal area. We report the use of a combined endoscopic endonasal and transoral approach to manage maxillary plexiform ameloblastoma in a 48 year old male patient...

BACKGROUND: The laryngeal framework provides a natural barrier preventing tumour spread to extralaryngeal structures. Transoral laser microsurgery (TLM) for laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) may violate these boundaries, altering the pathways of tumor spread for potential recurrences. Our project objective is to describe laryngeal SCC recurrence patterns and overall survival in patients requiring total laryngectomy (TL) after TLM. METHODS: Patients undergoing TLM for laryngeal SCC requiring salvage TL were identified from a prospective CO2 laser database containing all patients undergoing TLM for head and neck malignancies at the QEII Health Sciences Center in Halifax, Nova Scotia between March 2002 - May 2014...

OBJECTIVE: For many years, the microsurgical transoral approach (TOA) has been accepted as the "gold standard" for the surgical treatment of a variety of congenital, developmental, and acquired pathologies affecting the craniovertebral junction. In the present study, we try to investigate both experimental and clinical fronts of such a challenging surgery, starting from the updated literature experience. TOA is actually presented as an "old-fashioned" surgical technique dealing with possible bacterial contamination, the need of postoperative nose gastric tube feeding for a week, the possible nasopharyngeal incompetence, and the postoperative tongue swelling...

BACKGROUND: The transoral approach provides the most direct exposure to extradural lesions of the ventral craniovertebral junction. The morbidity and mortality from this approach greatly limits its use because they are still feared and debated. Using univariable and multivariable logistic regression analyses, this study aims to identify the factors associated with short-term complications in patients undergoing the transoral approach. METHODS: A consecutive cohort analysis of prospectively collected data in several neurosurgery spine departments evaluated 143 consecutive patients who had undergone craniovertebral junction transoral approach surgery...

Background: Craniocervical junction pathology is infrequent in daily neurosurgical practice. In general, most of these lesions are of traumatic or rheumatic origin. Atlantoaxial instability of inflammatory origin (Grisel syndrome) is a rare entity of which only 16 adult cases have been reported in the literature. This pathology is characterized by the development of an osteolytic lesion at the level of the atlantoaxial joint after an infectious event, usually of the upper airways. Case Description: We present the case of a 76-year-old patient who attended our office for clinical symptoms of spinal instability secondary to an osteolytic lesion, with involvement of C1 and C2...

Endoscopic transoral surgery for hypopharyngeal cancer is an effective treatment option to avoid invasive open surgery or chemoradiation. Here we describe the case of a 66-year-old patient with cT2N0M0 pyriform sinus cancer whom we treated using a transoral-transhyoid endoscopic approach. Using this approach, a transhyoid route was created in addition to the transoral route and used to extirpate the tumor. En bloc resection of the tumor was completed without difficulty. A combined transoral-transhyoid approach is a useful surgical option for treatment of selected patients with hypopharyngeal cancer...

Robot-assisted surgery is more and more widely used in urology, general surgery and gynecological surgery. The interest of robotics in plastic and reconstructive surgery, a discipline that operates primarily on surfaces, has yet to be conclusively proved. However, the initial applications of robotic surgery in plastic and reconstructive surgery have been emerging in a number of fields including transoral reconstruction of posterior oropharyngeal defects, nipple-sparing mastectomy with immediate breast reconstruction, microsurgery, muscle harvesting for pelvic reconstruction and coverage of the scalp or the extremities...
