  • Small Cell and Squamous Cell Carcinomas of the Head and Neck: Comparing Incidence and Survival Trends Based on Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Data. [Journal Article]
    Oncologist 2019Bean MB, Liu Y, … Saba NF
  • CONCLUSIONS: Compared with SCCHN, SmCCHN carries a worse survival and is more likely to present with more advanced stage.Small cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SmCCHN) is a rare subtype of head and neck cancer. In this Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) data analysis, the characteristics and survival of SmCCHN are compared with those of the common squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. Results show that SmCCHN carries a worse prognosis and tends to present at a more advanced stage; SmCCHN also is ten times more likely to originate from the salivary glands. These findings may have implications for clinical practice, as location of the tumor may strongly associate with the pathologic diagnosis. If a SmCCHN is diagnosed, a disseminated disease is likely; hence vigilance in staging procedures is indicated.
  • Anesthesia and ventilation options for flex robotic assisted laryngopharyngeal surgery. [Journal Article]
    Am J Otolaryngol 2019Krespi Y, Kizhner V, … Giordano A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Lesions of the tongue base, hypopharynx, larynx and trachea have the possibility to be managed with adequate exposure with minimal obstruction from ETT. Robotic HD camera permits both the surgeon and anesthesiologist to observe surgery and safely monitor the airway. An algorithm was developed for selecting ideal ventilation method for different procedures. The FLEX and the utilization of JV allows flexibility of two instruments without obstruction.
  • Incidence and Demographic Burden of HPV-associated Oropharyngeal Head and Neck Cancers in the United States. [Journal Article]
    Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev 2019Mahal BA, Catalano PJ, … Margalit DN
  • CONCLUSIONS: The US incidence of HPV-positive OPSCC was 4.61 per 100,000 persons. Most cases occurred in white male patients younger than 65, where it represents the sixth most common incident non-skin cancer. The favorable prognosis associated with HPV appears to be limited to the oropharynx.This large population-based epidemiological assessment of the US population defines the incidence and demographic burden of HPV-positive OPSCC.
