BACKGROUND: Following the total removal of the larynx (TL) as a result of laryngeal cancer, both, patients and partners face significant challenges caused by altered speech intelligibility. We analysed effects of the altered speech intelligibility on dyadic communication and marital quality from the partners' point of view. METHODS: 70 partners of cancer patients with laryngectomy from 13 hospitals in Central Germany were interviewed 2 (t1) and 3 (t2) years after laryngectomy...

PURPOSE: Surgical preservation of laryngeal function is very challenging in patients with advanced SCCL, especially those of stage T4a. The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility of organ preservation surgery for patients with T4a squamous cell carcinoma of the larynx (SCCL). METHODS: We enrolled 32 patients with T4a SCCL and performed organ preservation surgery on them. Surgical details and perioperative morbidity were described, functional and oncologic outcomes were also evaluated...

Cumulative evidence from research studies has shown that the shiitake culinary-medicinal mushroom, Lentinus edodes, is an excellent source of natural antitumor agents and is capable of inhibiting cancer cell growth. However, the cell signaling pathway that leads tumor cells to apoptosis is not well understood because many chemical compounds may be acting. This study investigated the chemopreventive effects of an L. edodes aqueous extract on human HEp-2 epithelial larynx carcinoma cells and normal human MRC-5 lung fibroblasts by identifying proliferative and apoptotic pathways...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric head and neck malignancies are rare and only a few descriptive epidemiological studies have been published. Using unique nationwide registries, we report age-specific incidence rates of head and neck cancer (HNC) among children during four decades. METHODS: Data were obtained from the Danish Cancer Registry. We included children aged 0-14 years diagnosed between January 1, 1978 and December 31, 2014 with extra-orbital, nonskin and nonbone HNC...

OBJECTIVE: To reveal the age distribution and capture the longitudinal trend in otolaryngological surgeries performed in Japan, where society is rapidly aging. METHODS: Using the Diagnosis Procedure Combination database, we extracted data on patients who were hospitalized and underwent any type of otolaryngological surgery in departments of otolaryngology or head and neck surgery from fiscal year 2007 to fiscal year 2013. Type of surgery, patient's age, and fiscal year were compared...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the impact of 3-Diminsional (3D) tumor volume (TV) and extent of involvement of primary tumor on treatment outcomes in a large uniform cohort of T3 laryngeal carcinoma patients treated with nonsurgical laryngeal preservation strategies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The pretreatment contrast-enhanced computed tomography images of 90 patients with T3 laryngeal carcinoma were reviewed. Primary gross tumor volume (GTVp) was delineated to calculate the 3D TV and define the extent of invasion...

PURPOSE: Pharyngo-laryngo-oesophagectomy (PLE) which is mainly indicated for cervical oesophageal cancer or synchronous double cancer of the thoracic oesophagus and the pharynx or larynx, is extremely invasive. Since minimally invasive oesophagectomy (MIE) using video-assisted thoracic surgery has become popular recently, the procedure can be adopted to PLE. Moreover, the use of the prone position (PP) in MIEs has been increasing recently because technical advantages and fewer post-operative complications were reported...

Tracheoesophageal voice puncture (TEP) coupled with the use of voice prosthesis has been considered as the gold standard for speech rehabilitation in patients of advanced laryngeal/hypopharyngeal carcinomas, who have undergone a total laryngectomy with or without partial pharyngectomy. Although prosthetic voice rehabilitation is commonly practiced worldwide including India, there is a paucity of published Indian data, more so in the current era of organ conservation. This study included 60 laryngectomized patients with a prosthetic voice rehabilitation at a tertiary cancer center in South India between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2013...

BACKGROUND: Métis people are 1 of 3 Aboriginal groups recognized by the Canadian constitution. We estimated site-specific incidence rates and survival for the most common cancers among Métis adults in Canada and compared these with rates among non-Aboriginal adults in Canada. METHODS: We examined responses to the 1991 long-form census, including self-reported Métis ancestry linked to national mortality and cancer databases for followup from 1992 to 2009. We estimated age-standardized incidence rates and 5-year relative survival...

The effect on quality of life (QOL) of laryngectomy and organ preservation protocols is important in decision making. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to evaluate QOL outcomes of patients with advanced laryngeal tumors who were treated with laryngectomy or organ preservation protocols in Latin America. A total of 35 patients from three oncology units were enrolled. Patients with stage III/IV laryngeal cancer who were treated using organ preservation protocols or laryngectomy were assessed with the University of Washington QOL Questionnaire...

INTRODUCTION: Trans-oral laser microsurgery is an established technique for the treatment of early and moderately advanced laryngeal cancer. OBJECTIVE: The authors intend to test the usefulness of narrow-band imaging in the intraoperative assessment of the larynx mucosa in terms of specifying surgical margins.

For a variety of head and neck cancers, specifically those of the oropharynx, larynx, and hypopharynx, minimally invasive trans-oral approaches have been developed to reduce perioperative and long-term morbidity. However, in trans-oral surgical approaches anatomical deformation due to instrumentation, specifically placement of laryngoscopes and retractors, present a significant challenge for surgeons relying on preoperative imaging to resect tumors to negative margins. Quantifying the deformation due to instrumentation is needed in order to develop predictive models of operative deformation...

Head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) are a diverse group of tumor types, including neoplasia of the paranasal sinuses, oral cavity, trachea, pharynx and larynx. Laryngeal cancer is the most common type of HNSCC. The proline-rich 4 (PRR4) protein is synthesized in the acinar cells of human lacrimal glands. Previous studies have demonstrated that PRR4 may function as an antimicrobial protein protecting the ocular surface and the oral cavity. In order to determine differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in laryngeal tumors, a GeneFishing Assay was performed; 27 DEGs were identified...

The clinical impact of the expression of NOTCH1 signaling components in squamous cell carcinoma of the pharynx and larynx has only been evaluated in subgroups. The aim of this study was therefore to evaluate NOTCH1 expression in head and neck squamous cell cancer (HNSCC) patient tissue and cell lines. We analyzed tissue from 195 HNSCCs and tissue from 30 normal patients for mRNA expression of NOTCH1, NOTCH3, HES1, HEY1, and JAG1 using quantitative real-time PCR. Association of expression results and clinical orpathological factors was examined with multivariate Cox regression...

BACKGROUND: The increasing incidence of oropharyngeal squamous cell cancer (OPSCC) is well established. However, up-to-date incidence estimates and trends for head and neck squamous cell cancers (HNSCCs) overall, including major anatomic sites, and nonoropharyngeal (non-OP) HNSCCs by sex, race, and age in the United States are not well described. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of incident HNSCCs during 1992 through 2014 using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database was performed to evaluate the incidence of HNSCCs overall, OPSCC, and non-OP HNSCC (those of the larynx, oral cavity, hypopharynx, nasopharynx, and nasal cavity)...

PURPOSE: The goal of this study was to describe patient characteristics, health resource utilization (HRU), and costs associated with treating recurrent or refractory head and neck cancer (HNC) among patients with disease progression in the community oncology setting. METHODS: This retrospective observational study was conducted by using data from the Vector Oncology Data Warehouse. Patients had been diagnosed with locally advanced or metastatic (stage III-IVc) HNC between January 1, 2007, and October 1, 2015...
