Mucosal Reconstruction with Nasal Lateral Wall Flap after Rhinectomy: Two Case Reports

Claudia Esper Zamar, Elián García Pita, Ana Laura Cajelli and Carlos Santiago Ruggeri

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 17, 2021

Two patients who had squamous cell carcinomas of the nasal cavity with extension to the nasal septum and previous treatments with surgery and in another with surgery and radiotherapy were treated by rhinectomy. The reconstruction of the internal mucosal lining was done with mucoperiosteal flaps from the lateral nasal wall with anterior pedicle with the assistance of endoscopes. There are few descriptions in the literature of the use of this flap to reconstruct the inner lining after rhinectomy. ...

Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy versus Conventional Radiotherapy of Early Testicular Seminoma Irradiation: Dosimetric Study

MW Hegazy and O Hassad

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 15, 2021

Testicular tumor is a rare tumor in men. Testicular seminoma is less aggressive than nonseminoma of germ cell tumors. Adjuvant nodal irradiation is an option of early stages I, IIA and IIB ≤ 3 cm pure seminoma disease. The aim of this study was to investigate which radiotherapy technique is better in nodal irradiation of early stage II pure seminoma, 3D-CRT or VMAT. This study was done on 5 patients with pure seminoma diagnosed at king Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Center, Riyadh, Saud...
