Abstract A 24-year-old man was admitted to our Otolaryngology Department following a head and neck CT scan performed for cranial trauma that showed a bulky neoformation in the right parapharyngeal space. Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the presence of an oval formation with sharp margins and colliquative areas of necrosis involving the right parapharyngeal space. The mass was completely excised by a latero-cervical approach. Based on histological features and immunohistochemical analysis, a...

The aim of the present retrospective controlled study was to analyse and compare risk factors for tracheocutaneous fistula in patients who received tracheostomy after supracricoid partial laryngectomy with those who received tracheostomy for other causes. We enrolled 39 patients with tracheocutaneous fistulas who were divided into two groups. The first received temporary tracheostomy for supracricoid partial laryngectomies (n = 21), while the control group consisted of patients who received temp...

Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis is a viral induced disease characterised by exophytic epithelial lesions affecting the larynx. The problem with its treatment is the high recurrence of papilloma growth after surgical removal. The aim of our review is to analyse the actual use of cidofovir, an agent used in adjuvant therapy. We have reviewed 6 manuscripts that included a total of 118 patients. The parameters taken into account were: concentration of infiltrated cidofovir (mg/ml), therapeutic ...

BACKGROUND: Several studies in the last decade evaluated conservative surgical procedures, and in particular supracricoid operations, as an alternative to total laryngectomy for the salvage of recurrences of laryngeal SCC after a first attempt of organ preservation. METHODS: The clinical records of 68 consecutive patients, primarily treated by irradiation or endoscopic surgery, and surgically salvaged by total laryngectomy or supracricoid partial laryngectomy in two large University hospitals in...
