Answer questions and earn CME/CNE Laryngeal cancer remains one of the most common tumors of the respiratory tract. Fortunately, significant advancements have been made over the past decade in the treatment of laryngeal cancer. Although surgery has been the historical mainstay for localized disease and still is an integral part of treatment, nonsurgical options like radiation and systemic therapy have emerged as viable options. In addition, in the metastatic setting, novel agents are showing promise for this patient population...

Transplantation in reconstructive surgery has been performed for more than 20 years, although the official beginning of these procedures is considered the first successful transplantation of the hand in 1998. The original name "Composite Tissue Transplantation" has been used less frequently; more common is the term "Vascularized Composite Allotransplant", which better describes the basis of the procedure. There have been so far approximately 180 transplantations performed, the exact number is difficult to find...

The GlideScope (GVL; Saturn Biomedical Systems, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada) is a rigid indirect video laryngoscope device that facilitates exposure of the larynx for placement of the endotracheal tube. This blade also reduces the requirement for anterior displacement of the tongue. A unique feature is the acutely angled blade which provides an improved glottic view. Herein, we present 2 instances of soft palate trauma, a rare oropharyngeal complication linked to GlideScope use. In the first case, the GlideScope was used for pedagogical purposes for intubation in a knee surgery...

Esophagectomy and definitive chemoradiotherapy are recognized standard initial treatment modalities for cervical esophageal cancer. The goal of this study was to compare the treatment outcomes of curative surgery with those of chemoradiotherapy in patients who had potentially resectable tumor and who were candidates for surgery. We evaluated the data from 49 consecutive patients who were diagnosed with potentially resectable cervical esophageal cancer and who were deemed candidates for surgery. Thirteen patients were included in the surgery group, and 36 patients were included in chemoradiotherapy group...

INTRODUCTION: Role of radiotherapy in comprehensive management of head and neck cancer for achieving tumour control and organ preservation is now well established and radiotherapy is routinely used in adjuvant setting after surgery, concurrently with chemotherapy or targeted agents and for palliation. Development of linear accelerator with Multileaf Collimator (MLC) have revolutionized radiation delivery techniques, allowing conformal and Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) to deliver highly conformal sculpted radiation dose to a very complex structure with improved sparing of adjoining critical structures like salivary glands, spinal cord, eyes, brainstem and larynx amounting to better therapeutic gain...

BACKGROUND: Although laryngectomy is the treatment of choice for patients with T4 larynx cancer, many patients are unable or unwilling to undergo laryngectomy and instead pursue larynx-preservation strategies combining radiotherapy (RT) and chemotherapy. Herein, the authors analyzed the National Cancer Data Base to evaluate overall survival (OS) between patients treated with surgical and organ-preserving modalities. METHODS: The National Cancer Data Base was queried for patients diagnosed from 2004 through 2012 with T4M0 laryngeal cancer who underwent either laryngectomy (surgery) with adjuvant RT (SRT), chemotherapy starting concurrently within 7 days of RT (CCRT), or multiagent induction chemotherapy starting 43 to 98 days before RT (ICRT)...
