How effective is an algorithm for rapid discharge after transoral robotic surgery (TORS), and what is its effect on postoperative complications?
What are the safety, toxicity and oncologic outcomes of patients undergoing transoral robotic surgery (TORS), neck dissection and adjuvant therapy for advanced oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (AOC)? Background: Most patients with AOC in the U.S. are treated with definitive chemoradiation therapy. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently approved TORS for surgical treatment of AOC.

What is the incidence of pharyngocutaneous fistula associated with transoral robotic oropharyngectomy with concurrent neck dissection, and how can pharyngocutaneous fistula be prevented and treated? Background: Transoral resection is emerging as a valuable modality to treat oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma. The surgical treatment frequently involves neck dissection, but many surgeons have been reluctant to perform the […]
