  • Obstructive sleep apnoea as a late complication after tracheostomy. [Case Reports]
    J Laryngol Otol 2019; 133(7):632-635Đanić D, Mrzljak Vučinić N, Đanić Hadžibegović A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Drug-induced sleep endoscopy should always be used for visualisation of anatomical structures below the vocal folds in patients with a history of cervical trachea surgery. These two cases demonstrate the importance of drug-induced sleep endoscopy in planning conservative and surgical treatments, contributing significantly to operative success.
  • Outcomes of Tumour Control from Primary Treatment of Hypopharyngeal Cancer. [Review]
    Adv Otorhinolaryngol 2019; 83:90-108Siddiq S, Paleri V
  • Hypopharynx cancer continues to pose a clinically challenging head and neck subsite, driven not only by the unique set of patient, anatomic and disease factors but also by the paucity of robust clinical data to guide clinical decision making. The standard of care of radical surgery (pharyngolaryngectomy) in combination with postoperative radiotherapy was the previously accepted norm in the settin…
  • Surgical Treatment of Advanced Staged Hypopharyngeal Cancer. [Review]
    Adv Otorhinolaryngol 2019; 83:66-75Wei WI, Chan JYW
  • It is not uncommon for patients with hypopharyngeal cancer to present at an advanced stage of disease. Surgical treatment provides a cure for the tumour with immediate relief from obstruction to the airway and the swallowing passage. Careful planning of surgery is important to ensure good outcome of treatment and prevent complications, some of which may be fatal. The shape of the hypopharynx rese…
  • Salvage Treatment Options after Failed Primary Treatment of Hypopharyngeal Cancer. [Review]
    Adv Otorhinolaryngol 2019; 83:135-147Simo R, Rovira A, Townley W
  • Recurrent hypopharyngeal cancer (rHPC) is a high-risk fatal disease associated with poor prognosis and high risk of complications in patients who are suitable to undergo salvage treatment. The treatment of such patients should be managed by a dedicated multidisciplinary team, most frequently a tertiary centre. and with the agreement of the patient. Close follow-up is crucial in achieving early de…
  • Future Perspectives in Hypopharyngeal Cancer Care. [Review]
    Adv Otorhinolaryngol 2019; 83:167-175Eckel HE, Bradley PJ
  • Recent advances in minimal access surgery have shown promise in the treatment of limited hypopharyngeal lesions. In spite of their functionally excellent results in individual patients, it currently remains unlikely that these approaches will gain a more major universal impact on hypopharyngeal cancer care. In advanced stage hypopharyngeal cancer, the use of the traditional radical surgery, such …
