Background: The novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is an urgent public health crisis, with epidemiologic models predicting severe consequences, including high death rates, if the virus is permitted to run its course without any intervention or response. Contact tracing using smartphone technology is a powerful tool that may be emplo...
Article
Objectives Skull base chordomas are locally aggressive malignant tumors derived from the notochord remnant. There are limited large-scale studies examining the role and extent of surgery and radiation therapy. Design Analysis of the National Cancer Database (NCDB) was performed to evaluate the survival outcomes of various treatments, and to assess...
Article
Objective Chondrosarcomas of the skull base are rare tumors most commonly treated surgically with or without adjuvant radiation therapy. Using the National Cancer Database (NCDB), we analyzed overall survival (OS), treatment modalities, and prognosticators. Methods The NCDB was queried for all cases of histologically confirmed skull base chondrosa...
Article
Full-text available
Objective Pituitary adenomas in the pediatric population are extremely rare, resulting in limited information in the literature on these patients. In this study, data from the National Cancer Database (NCDB) to compare pituitary adenoma clinical presentations, treatment management patterns, and overall survival between pediatric and adult patients....
Article
Objectives/Hypothesis To identify prognosticators and determine the efficacies of surgery with adjuvant radiotherapy (SR) and surgery with immunotherapy (SI) of head and neck mucosal melanoma (HNMM). Study Design Retrospective database study. Methods The 2004 to 2017 National Cancer Database was queried for HNMM patients. Cox proportional hazards...
Article
Full-text available
PurposeLess than 5% of chordomas occur in pediatric patients. While many studies have explored the treatment and outcomes of skull base chordomas, few have focused on the differences between pediatric and adult populations. The aim of this study is to analyze the epidemiological variables and clinical outcomes between pediatric and adult skull base...
Article
Objectives/hypothesis: This study utilizes a large population national database to comprehensively analyze prognosticators and overall survival (OS) outcomes of varying treatment modalities in a large cohort of sinonasal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (SN-DLBCL) patients. Study design: Retrospective database study. Methods: The National Cancer Dat...
Article
Background Esthesioneuroblastoma (ENB) is an uncommon sinonasal malignancy and is even less common in the pediatric population. Objective The purpose of this study is to compare characteristics and outcomes of ENB between adult and pediatric patients. Methods The National Cancer Database was queried for patients with histologically proven ENB of...
Article
Objectives: To investigate the clinical presentation, treatment breakdown, and overall survival (OS) outcomes of patients with neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2)-associated bilateral vestibular schwannoma (NVS). Methods: The 2004 to 2016 National Cancer Database was queried for patients with a diagnosis of VS. The "Laterality" code was used to strat...
Article
Introduction The short-term adverse events and predictors of morbidity in surgical resection of esthesioneuroblastoma (ENB) are largely unknown, and investigating these variables can help direct planning for at-risk patients. Methods The 2005–2017 National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database was queried to identify patients with a diagno...
Article
Background: This study develops machine learning (ML) algorithms that use preoperative-only features to predict discharge-to-nonhome-facility (DNHF) and length-of-stay (LOS) following complex head and neck surgeries. Methods: Patients undergoing laryngectomy or composite tissue excision followed by free tissue transfer were extracted from the 20...
Article
Objectives The link between human papillomavirus (HPV) and oropharyngeal cancer (OPC) is well known. Locally advanced, HPV‐positive OPC (HPV OPC) can be treated with either chemoradiation or primary surgery with or without adjuvant therapy. Head and neck cancer patients with government insurance or uninsured have been shown to have worse prognosis...
Article
Objectives/Hypothesis There exists a lack of consensus on the optimal sequence of treatment for many sinonasal malignancies (SNMs). This study compares the overall survival (OS) outcomes for primary surgery (PS) versus salvage surgery (SS) in SNM patients across stage, histology, and primary site. Study Design Retrospective database review. Metho...

Article
Background: Sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma (SNUC) is an uncommon malignancy of the nasal cavity and accessory sinuses with limited available studies evaluating role of induction chemotherapy (IC), demographics, and socioeconomic factors on overall survival (OS). Methods: The 2004-2015 National Cancer Database was queried for patients with...
Article
Background: Recently, there has been mounting evidence suggesting the efficacy of steroid-eluting stents (SES) for management of chronic rhinosinusitis after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). This meta-analysis serves to evaluate the efficacy of SES in improving postoperative outcomes after ESS. Methods: A systematic literature search was performe...
