PURPOSE: Locally advanced tongue carcinomas (LATCs) in inoperable lesions are managed with external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) and chemotherapy. In our institution, the boost to the gross tumor volume is delivered with high-dose-rate brachytherapy (HDR-BT) after EBRT. We review the outcome of these patients when HDR-BT is added as a boost. METHODS AND MATERIALS: From May 2000 to December 2014, a total of 24 patients with LATC, nonsurgical oral tongue, and base of tongue carcinomas were treated with EBRT and with interstitial plastic tubes for brachytherapy; median dose was 18-24 Gy in 6-8 fractions after 50-60 Gy of EBRT...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Although drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) is an accepted method to localize upper airway obstruction, it is not known whether allsites identified by DISE must be treated to achieve sufficient apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) improvement. The aim of this study was to compare outcomes forunilevel (upper) versus multilevel DISE collapse patterns in a patient cohort that only underwent modern palatopharyngoplasty. Our hypothesis was that notall tongue base-level obstructions on DISE must be treated...

Since the first report of the use of the da Vinci robotic system (Intuitive Surgical, Sunnyvale, CA, USA) in transoral robotic tongue base reduction for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) was published in 2010, this surgical tool and technique has been used worldwide for the resection of tongue base tissue in the multilevel surgical treatment of OSA. The combined knowledge of the published literature on its use has enlightened sleep surgeons worldwide on this new yet evolving surgical tool. Here we will discuss the use of the da Vinci robotic system in the treatment of OSA, the pertinent surgical anatomy for a safe surgical procedure, the primary and secondary outcomes to expect in the multilevel and primary use of this technology in treating the tongue base, the predictors for success or failure, and the complications associated with this technique...

The failure of traditional upper airway surgery such as uvulopalatopharyngoplasty has been attributed to lower airway obstruction related to base of tongue collapse. Multiple procedures, including glossectomy, tongue base radiofrequency, genioglossus advancement, and tongue suspension techniques, have been advocated to improve success rates. No consensus exists on which subsets of patients are best treated by individual approaches and direct comparative data are lacking. The selection of procedures must be based on individual patient needs and the relative potential benefits and risks...

Surgical accesses for the facial skeleton are based on the concept of modular osteotomies. Various techniques and combination of osteotomies facilitate access to the most inaccessible tumors of craniomaxillofacial region. Most appropriate surgical access is determined by considering size, location, extension of the tumor, and experience of the surgical team. These are primarily used for tumors in the nasopharynx or the skull base. The aim of this paper is to review surgical accesses that aid in removal of inaccessible tumors of craniomaxillofacial region with series of cases operated in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Armed Forces Medical College, Pune, India, between July 2008 and June 2010...

The treatment of advanced-stage oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma may utilize various modes, including combining surgery with chemoradiotherapy (CTRT), or primary CTRT followed by rescue surgery. In previous literature it has been revealed how patients treated with combined modes report a low quality of life (QoL) and severe consequences following surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, in the short and in the long-term. The decrease in the QoL of patients treated with high-intensity multi-modal strategies highlights the necessity of modifying treatments, particularly for young HPV-positive patients, where an increased survival rate has already been reported...

BACKGROUND: The utilization of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) in patients with trismus is limited because of poor surgical exposure. METHODS: This report is about a 46-year-old man with a recurrent right base of tongue cancer who had severe postradiation trismus. We performed a midline mandibular osteotomy without a lip split and this resulted in a markedly improved surgical exposure. He underwent a TORS resection of the right base of the tongue with no significant complications...

A case of coexistent glossopharyngeal neuralgia and hemifacial spasm was treated by transposition of the vertebral artery. A 60-year-old man was referred to our hospital due to pain in the left posterior part of the tongue that was difficult to control with oral medication at a local hospital. The diagnosis was left glossopharyngeal neuralgia based on the symptoms, imaging findings, and lidocaine test results. Moreover, the patient had left hemifacial spasm. Microvascular decompression was performed, which confirmed that the vertebral artery was compressing the lower cranial nerve and the posterior inferior cerebellar artery was compressing the root exit zone of the facial nerve...
