Radiation Therapy Impact on Lymph Node Yield in Patients With Laryngeal Squamous Cell CarcinomaEar, Nose & Throat Journal
2019 A lymph node yield (LNY) over 20 is considered a quality metric for lateral neck dissection to ensure an oncologic representative sample. Anecdotally, however, LNY in patients undergoing neck dissection after radiation therapy (RT) is lower due to atrophy and fibrosis.
Recurrence Rate after Endoscopic vs. Open Approaches for Juvenile Nasopharyngeal Angiofibroma: A Meta-analysisJournal of Neurological Surgery
2018 The effect on recurrence rate between patients with juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA), treated by an endoscopic versus open approach, has not been well established. Objective A meta-analysis of the available literature concerning recurrence rate in patients who underwent surgery for JNA.
Body Mass Index and Olfactory Fossa Depth in Patients with and without Spontaneous Cerebrospinal Fluid LeaksORL
2017 Spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid (SCSF) leaks are associated with a high body mass index (BMI) and an expanded skull base. The purpose of this study is to determine if a correlation exists between BMI and olfactory fossa depth (OFD) in patients with SCSF leaks and those without.
To preserve or not to preserve the orbit in paranasal sinus neoplasms: a meta-analysisNational Library of Medicine
Camilo Reyes, Eric Mason, C Arturo Solares, Carrie Bush, Ricardo Carrau
Context The effect on survival of orbital evisceration on patients with paranasal sinus neoplasms has not been well established. Objective To review systematically the available literature concerning survival in patients who undergo surgery for paranasal sinus neoplasm with and without preservation of the eye. Data Source A retrospective meta-analysis of English and non-English articles using Medline and the Cochrane database

Jeffrey J Falco, C Arturo Solares, Camilo Reyes
The video demonstrates the steps for an endoscopic transnasal approach for resection of the odontoid causing platybasia with basilar invasion. Design The video reviews the clinical presentation, preoperative workup and imaging, patient positioning, technical nuances of the procedure, reconstruction, and clinical outcomes including postoperative imaging.
Sinonasal Anatomic Variants in Allergic Fungal RhinosinusitisPubMed.gov
Chadi A Makary, Brock Parman, Brittany Gill, Aykut Unsal, Thomas Holmes, Camilo Reyes, Stilianos E Kountakis
Retrospective cohort study. Patients with AFRS presenting to our clinic from 2008 to 2018 were reviewed for laterality of the disease. Patients with unilateral involvement were further studied for AV presence by reviewing their preoperative sinus CT scan at original presentation. Each patient's uninvolved side served as its own control. AVs studied include agger nasi (AN), Haller's cells (HC), concha bullosa (CB) and supraorbital ethmoid cells (SOEC).
Treatment Outcomes for Osteoradionecrosis of the Central Skull Base: A Systematic ReviewThieme E-Journals
Noah Shaikh , Chadi A. Makary , Lindsey Ryan , Camilo Reyes
Osteoradionecrosis (ORN) of the skull base can have catastrophic consequences if not detected early and managed appropriately. This is a systematic review of the different treatment modalities for skull base ORN and their outcomes.
Treatment Modality Role in Survival of Patients with Advanced Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Sinonasal Cavity: A National Cancer Database StudyThieme E-journals
Camilo Reyes, Chris Johnson
Using the National Cancer Database (NCDB), we analyzed over 2,000 cases of paranasal sinus malignancy. Patients were selected for age 18 years or older; first malignancy; tumor stage 4A or 4B; malignancy of the maxillary, ethmoid, sphenoid, and frontal sinus; and complete data regarding treatment, staging, and margin status. Patients were grouped according to the following treatment modalities: primary surgery, concurrent chemoradiaiton, neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery, and induction chemotherapy followed by surgery. Groups were compared for difference in patient demographics, comorbidities, and disease specific factors. Kaplan–Meier analysis was used to assess overall survival. Cox’s hazard ratio (HR) analysis was used to assess factors affecting overall survival.
