Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Otolaryngology Volume 46, Issue 10: Highlights from the UCSF Head and Neck Cancer Update.
The goals of this program are to improve diagnosis and management of laryngeal and tongue cancers and head and neck cancers of unknown primary. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Use chemoselection to choose appropriate candidates for larynx preservation with chemoradiation therapy (CRT).
2. Evaluate patients with head and neck cancers of unknown primary to locate primary tumor.
3. Manage and treat unidentified head and neck cancers of unknown primary with surgery and/or CRT as appropriate.
4. Choose the best approach to adequately reconstruct lingual defects from surgical management of tongue cancer.
5. Perform adequate therapeutic and elective neck dissection for tongue cancer primaries based on size, extent, and location of the tumor.
The original programs were presented by Theodoros N. Teknos, MD, Professor and Vice Chair, Department of Otolaryngology, Director, James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, David W.
