Radiation Therapy Impact on Lymph Node Yield in Patients With Laryngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Ear, 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.

Body Mass Index and Olfactory Fossa Depth in Patients with and without Spontaneous Cerebrospinal Fluid Leaks


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.

Sinonasal Anatomic Variants in Allergic Fungal Rhinosinusitis


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 Modality Role in Survival of Patients with Advanced Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Sinonasal Cavity: A National Cancer Database Study

Thieme 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.
