Oral cancer recurrence after free flap surgery

Reconstructive Surgery for Oral Cancer NYU Langone Healt

  1. This tissue is called a free flap. Doctors use microvascular surgery to cut through the attached blood vessels to remove the flap and reattach it at the site of the repair. Being able to use a free flap from a distant part of the body gives surgeons more options for selecting tissue that best matches the site of repair in the oral cavity
  2. Abstract Primary microsurgical reconstruction is the treatment of choice for ablative defects of oral carcinoma. As a result of this trend, more and more patients with recurrent oral carcinoma who have been initially treated with surgical excision and reconstructed with free flaps are being seen
  3. Salvage surgery with free flap reconstruction for recurrent oral and oropharyngeal tumors after chemoradiotherapy has acceptable morbidity and similar cure rates as salvage following radiotherapy without chemotherapy. Concurrent nodal recurrence and short disease-free interval are associated with reduced cure rates
  4. Salvage surgery with free flap reconstruction for recurrent oral and oropharyngeal tumors after chemoradiotherapy has acceptable morbidity and similar cure rates as salvage following radiotherapy without chemotherapy. Concurrent nodal recurrence and short disease‐free interval are associated with reduced cure rates
  5. The use of free flaps in the maxillofacial region, such as radial forearm free flaps and anterolateral thigh (ALT) flaps, for reconstruction after tumor resection, such as squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), has become the gold standard for the oral rehabilitation of patients [ 1 ]

years after the initial surgery (Figure 2). Recurrence after the final salvage surgery was seen in 8 of 10 patients (80%) of tongue cancer, indicating a significantly poorer prognosis than the remaining 7 patients with other oral cancer, among which there were only two recurrences (29%, Figure 3) Demographic characteristic in patients with recurrent oral squamous cell carcinoma treated by salvage surgery and reconstruction using second free flaps. The area of the primary cancer largely involved the mandible (13 cases), followed by 8 cases in the tongue area and 2 cases in the buccal mucosa

Outcomes of salvage surgery with free flap reconstruction

Alam and Khariwala 1 reported that 63% of patients with cancer recurrence requiring a second free flap remained disease free and alive at a mean follow-up of only 13 months. However, as far as we detected, there were no reports on the disease-specific survival rate of free flap reconstructions in the head and neck Radial Forearm Flap. A radial forearm free flap is one way of filling a hole which is left when a cancer has been removed. It is one of the most common ways of replacing tissue in the head and neck, particularly after mouth cancers have been removed. It can be used to replace large parts of the mouth and has the advantage that when it heals it. Major Oral Surgery: Composite Resection with Free Flap. Read this booklet to learn: • how to prepare for oral surgery • what you can expect • how to care for yourself when you get home • who to contact if you have any questions Being diagnosed with oral cancer and going through surgery can be very stressful Keywords: Microsurgery, head and neck reconstruction, oral cancer, double free flaps, Patient 1 was able to maintain his weight through an oral diet after his extensive surgery over a period of 4 years. the longest follow-up was 52 months without malignant recurrence. Free flap survival in this region was reported to be 96-100%. Based on these results, it is suggested that free flap reconstruction is an important option for reconstruction in patients with recurrent oral cancer under salvage surgery. If the flaps are adaptive, they are as safe and effective as in the early stages of treatment [ 1

The pectoralis major myocutaneous flap is a reliable choice for reconstruction of extensive soft tissue defects caused by excision of recurrent oral cancer. The major complications correlate with the site of reconstruction. Many patients benefit from salvage surgery, and some of them can survive 2 to 4 years postoperatively to, for example, the oral cavity or tongue, the ALTF is able to cover such defects with no need of a second flap [1,2]. The recurrence after total or partial laryngectomy is usual

patients developed local recurrence after salvage radical neck dissection for initial nodal recurrence. Although local recurrence within the oral cavity can be easily detected clinically, it can often appear later than nodal recurrence. Close surveillance for local recurrence is still mandatory after management ofnodal recurrence Microvascular Reconstructive (Free Flaps) Most oral, neck or head cancers cannot be completely treated without surgical excision.

Second primary squamous cell carcinoma in an oral cavity

Revision surgery is frequently made difficult due to the use of a free flap or a local flap for the reconstruction of the primary tongue defect, and adjuvant EBRTx is thus recommended. EBRTx for close/positive margins in OTSCC has been shown to improve survival but not to the level of clear margins [ 5 ] When cancer returns after a period of remission, it's considered a recurrence. A cancer recurrence happens because, in spite of the best efforts to rid you of your cancer, some cells from your cancer remained. These cells could be in the same place where your cancer first originated, or they could be in another part of your body Symptoms reported by patients at least 1 year after surgery included persistent itching or tingling at the surgical site (38%). Other signs of recurrence noticed by patients were intermittent ulceration or crusting (32%), a papule near the incision line (25%), oozing or bleeding (12%), and firm swelling in the surgical area (7%) This is a specialised surgery (by a maxillofacial surgeon). After surgery your nurses keep a close eye on the flap. They make sure the new tissue is getting a good blood supply to bring oxygen and nutrients. They might use a tiny probe to help check the flap is working well. Using skin from another part of the body. This is called a skin graft Swedish Head & Neck Surgery / First Hill. Phone 206-292-6464.

Forty-four patients with a large carcinoma in the oral cavity, oral pharynx, or hypopharynx underwent free-flap surgery with or without radiotherapy Head & Neck Cancer. We offer comprehensive, specialized care for patients with benign and malignant oral, head, and neck cancer. Our surgeons remove head and neck tumors including the mouth, face, jaw, tongue, pharynx (throat), larynx (voice box), thyroid gland, as well as salivary gland tumors Free Flaps. Free flap surgery, also referred to as free tissue transfer or microvascular reconstruction, involves removing a segment of tissue and its blood supply from one part of the body and transplanting it to another part of the body. The types of tissue that can be transferred include skin, muscle, fascia, bone, bowel, and combinations of.

The phase III CALOR (Chemotherapy as Adjuvant for LOcally Recurrent breast cancer) trial, the final analysis of which was recently reported, is perhaps the most well-known trial in this space.[39,40] The trial randomized patients with isolated locoregional recurrence of breast cancer to receive chemotherapy or no chemotherapy, with surgery. The submental island flap (SIF) is a reliable option for reconstructing defects in the facial region and offers several advantages when compared to free-flap alternatives. While the reconstructive applications of the SIF have been demonstrated in the lower face, there are limited reports on its utility as a composite flap for reconstructing defects of the upper facial skeleton

  5. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the most commonly occurring malignant tumor in the oral cavity. In South Korea, it occurs most frequently in the mandible, tongue, maxilla, buccal mucosa, other areas of the oral cavity, and lips. Radial forearm free flap (RFFF) is the most widely used reconstruction method for the buccal mucosal defect. The scar of the forearm donor, however, is highly visible.
  6. In our study population, regional anaesthesia-analgesia (paravertebral block and propofol) did not reduce breast cancer recurrence after potentially curative surgery compared with volatile anaesthesia (sevoflurane) and opioids. The frequency and severity of persistent incisional breast pain was unaffected by anaesthetic technique. Clinicians can use regional or general anaesthesia with respect.

We report our experience with a patient who developed an ulcer within a free flap 2 months following resection of an oral squamous cell carcinoma. We discuss this clinical problem and the issues it raised, with particular attention to early tumor recurrence and the restoration of sensation in free-flap reconstructions oropharyngeal cancer. Beginning in the 1980s and 90s, management for this disease has shifted from surgery to radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy, though there are some centers that have reported good results in terms of survival and recurrence with primary surgery, especially with renewed interest in surgery with the advent of transoral. Surgery is often used to treat oral cancer that hasn't spread. Surgery also is commonly used to treat advanced-stage and recurrent cancers, often in combination with radiation therapy, chemotherapy and/or targeted therapy. Surgical procedures for oral cancer include: Tumor resection, or the removal of the entire tumor and some surrounding tissu •Microsurgical free tissue transfer, using the anterolateral thigh flap, has been a workhorse for head and neck reconstruction after tumor resection. •When tumor recurrence is present, a second ALT flap transfer is still the first choice. •However, the selection of recipient sites is most challenging in such cases

Oral Cancer Recurrence: Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatmen

The reconstruction of a large mandibular defect poses a challenging issue in oral cancer ablation surgery. One popular option for mandibular continuity reconstruction after tumor resection involves the use of a reconstruction plate (R-plate), which maintains space and contour without bone harvesting. An R-plate, however, cannot provide final functional loading rehabilitation with implants or. tongue cancer. In addition to surgery, adjuvant therapy may also affect the severity of the functional impairment. Therefore, we intend to evaluate the influence of post-operative radiotherapy on the functional outcome after partial glossectomy with free flap reconstruction in early oral tongue cancer patients.

Primary closure or the use of skin graft can indicate for defects after oral surgery of early stage tumors. Contrarily, with large and complex defects after the oral tumor resection, plastic surgery needs the participation of an expert reconstructive surgeon. Microvascular free flap surgery is the prevailingly preferential technique Fibula free flap is the most commonly utilised vascularised free flap reconstruction technique (80.76%). Ten out of eighteen studies reported no complications. Recurrence of osteonecrosis was registered in five cases (6.41%) after free flap reconstruction. The overall free flap success rate was 96.16%. Conclusions

Free Flap Outcomes of Microvascular Reconstruction after

  1. A skin flap is a slightly thicker layer of skin, which is taken from an area very close to the wound where the cancer has been removed. The flap is cut away, but left partly connected so it still has a blood supply. It is moved over the wound and stitched in place. If you have a skin flap, you may need to stay in hospital for a few days
