Prognosis

  • Prognosis The biological behavior of carcinoma of the hypopharynx differs greatly from that of carcinoma of the larynx.[health.am]
  • Prognosis Prognosis of the Plummer-Vinson syndrome is excellent. As described above, dysphagia and anemia can be treated effectively.[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]
  • Radiology 167:199–206 PubMed Google Scholar Castelijns JA, Becker M, Hermans R (1996a) The impact of cartilage invasion on treatment and prognosis of laryngeal cancer.[link.springer.com]
  • Prognosis : the sequelae depend on the anatomical sites affected, the extent and severity of tissue destruction, and the stage of development of the oral tissues. Survivors of acute noma often have severe disfigurement and functional impairment.[ufrgs.br]

Etiology

  • Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology.[icd10coded.com]
  • Etiology and pathogenesis The pathogenesis of Plummer-Vinson syndrome is unknown. The most important possible etiological factor is iron deficiency.[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]

Epidemiology

  • To Hausa communities in Nigeria, it is known as ciwon iska — an unexplained, sudden illness linked to the spirits Epidemiology : the incidence of acute noma peaks at 1-4 years of age, although late stages occur in adolescents and adults ref .[ufrgs.br]
  • This epidemiologic change is believed to be due to a decrease in the initiation of cancer in the hypopharynx and does not necessarily reflect any improvement in survival due to treatment.[health.am]
  • Exact data about epidemiology of the syndrome are not available; the syndrome is extremely rare.[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]

Pathophysiology

  • […] invades adjacent structures (eg, cartilage or soft tissues of the neck) Hypopharyngeal cancer is a term used for tumors of a subsite of the upper aerodigestive tract, and like most other subsite designations, the distinction is anatomic rather than pathophysiologic[health.am]
  • Pathophysiology Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by repetitive upper airway obstruction during sleep as a result of narrowing of the respiratory passages.[aafp.org]

Prevention

  • Gastrointestinal Bleeding 584 Transcatheter Management of Upper and Lower Gastrointestinal Tract Bleeding 590 Diverticular Disease of the Colon 597 Laboratory Evaluation and Liver Biopsy Assessment in Liver Disease 604 Acute Hepatitis Management and Prevention[books.google.de]
  • Recommendations for the prevention of noma include the inculcation of good nutritional practices, the promotion of exclusive breast-feeding during the first three to six months of life, immunization against endemic communicable diseases, proper oral hygiene[ufrgs.br]
