Authoritative and lavishly illustrated, this book is a valuable compendium of surgical techniques for the most complex oncologic problems in the head and neck patient. It distills the author’s decades of experience in the surgical management of cases in which the excision of complex lesions is difficult and reconstruction is problematic. In the first half of the book, each chapter addresses cancer in a different region of the head and neck. Each chapter provides discussion of etiology, pathology, pathophysiology, and surgical anatomy, providing the necessary background for diagnostic evaluation, surgical treatment as well as nonsurgical treatment, including chemotherapy and radiation. Additional chapters cover such important topics as care for the pediatric patient, radiotherapy, restoration secondary to tumor ablation, and speech, voice, and swallowing implications following ablative procedures. Features:* Detailed descriptions that guide the clinician through each surgical procedure* Comprehensive discussion of management strategies that provides clinicians with a solid understanding of the available treatments and the possibilities and limitations of each* Nearly 1,000 high-quality illustrations, photographs, and radiographic images that demonstrate pathologic and surgical concepts in precise detail* Coverage of the latest techniques in skull base surgery and laryngeal surgery* Valuable discussion of nursing care, nutrition, and speech therapy An essential resource for optimizing the care of patients with advanced cancer, this book is ideal for clinicians and residents in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, oncology, and general surgery. This book’s USP is summed up as “the management of the difficult case” in head and neck cancer surgery. There are several head and neck cancer books meant as general introductions to the subject, including our own new Genden/Varvares, and these are suitable for beginning residents. Senior residents, fellows, and practitioners, however, also need a resource for the cases that aren’t straightforward. The big push in head and neck cancer treatment has been to use primary radiation and chemotherapy, but substantial numbers of patients have been failed by these modalities. How then to successfully treat those unfortunates? This book, by the well-known and respected Paul J. Donald, is the needed resource – for the revision surgery that is required when the first surgery is a failure, or the last-ditch salvage surgery that is needed to treat a patient who has not responded to anything else.

The UK head and neck cancer guidelines recommend that all patients have nutritional screening by a clinician at presentation and specialist dietician input throughout their care. 5 Nutritional therapy is indicated if the BMI is less than 18.5, weight loss greater than 10% of body weight, or if inadequate food intake is likely after surgery. The The issues discussed in his case apply not only to tracheostomy but to all oral, nasal and pharyngolaryngeal surgery including endoscopy for cancer. Undoubtably, management of head and neck cancer patients is a major dilemma during this pandemic.

unrecognized difficult airway in both of these settings, and the iatrogenic difficult airway. We have encountered case examples of all of these in head and neck cancer surgery patients during the past four years. A review of some of these provides a useful vehicle for discussion. IV. The Recognized Difficult Airway: Nonemergent Setting

A phase III randomised trial of cisplatin plus placebo compared with cisplatin plus cetuximab in metastatic and/or recurrent head and neck cancer was done and it was shown that addition of cetuximab to cisplatin significantly improved response rate but did not significantly improve progression-free and overall survival.22 The addition of cetuximab to platinum-based chemotherapy (either ... In this case, you have a neck dissection during your surgery to remove the cancer. Sometimes your surgeon doesn't know if there are cancer cells in your lymph nodes before you have surgery. In this case, your surgeon will suggest removing the lymph nodes closest to the cancer. They send the nodes to the laboratory to check them for cancer cells.
