TY - JOUR. T1 - Diagnostic performance of FDG-PET/CT for cervical lymph node metastasis in patients with oral cancer. AU - Kubo, M.. AU - Terazawa, K.. AU - Otomi, Y.. AU - Shinya, Takayoshi. AU - Harada, M.. AU - Otsuka, H.. PY - 2015. Y1 - 2015. N2 - 18F-FDG PET/CT examinations are useful for the diagnosis of cervical lymph node metastasis. In this study, PET/CT was found to have a sensitivity of 73% and a specificity of 79%. Since inflammatory lymph nodes sometimes manifest false positive FDG findings, we should therefore carefully examine patients with cervical lymph node swelling and consider the anatomic location of both the primary lesion and cervical lymph nodes. Other morphological imaging modalities (CECT, MRI) may therefore also be necessary to obtain more precise anatomic information.. AB - 18F-FDG PET/CT examinations are useful for the diagnosis of cervical lymph node metastasis. In this study, PET/CT was found to have a sensitivity of 73% and a specificity of 79%. Since ...
Previous studies have suggested injury assessment reference values (IARVs) for lower neck injury based on scaled upper neck values. This study developed independent flexion and extension IARVs for the lower neck by matching Anthropomorphic Test Device (ATD) data to impact-tested post-mortem human subjects (PMHSs) with mid- to low-cervical spine injuries. Pendulum and sled tests with Hybrid III midsize male and small female ATDs were run under conditions mimicking those of published PMHS torso drop-sled tests and other PMHS studies. Measurements included upper and lower neck forces and moments, head acceleration, head rotation rate, and head/neck angles for the pendulum tests. Rear impacts corresponding to rigid seatback tests without a head restraint produced lower neck extension moments that increased dramatically with test severity, as measured by increasing delta-V and/or decreasing pulse duration. In contrast, upper neck extension moments increased only modestly with test severity, and all ...
Semantic Scholar extracted view of [Cervical lymph node metastases in epithelial neoplasms of the upper respiratory-digestive tract]. by Chiara Cavina et al.
The cervical spine is subjected to wear and tear as well as trauma. This increases the occurrence of degeneration of intervertebral discs and facet joints. Degeneration will result in loss of disc height and the formation of osteophytes on adjacent vertebrae. Nerve roots can be irritated or compressed by this pathology and patients can possibly develop neurological signs and symptoms as well as pain. An anterior neck fusion is a surgical procedure that is frequently used to manage cervical pathologies such as degeneration, spinal stenosis, disc herniation, or trauma. Cervical pathologies can become severe and neural compression may develop. Compression of neural components can present with symptoms such as muscle weakness, numbness, tingling or radicular pain. The main aim of the surgery is to decompress the neural structures, permanently stabilize the vertebrae, to maintain a cervical lordosis and to hold an anatomical disc space. Chronic spinal disorders, including cervical and lumbar ...
Based on this information, new to me, I present this particular technique in MMT I with caution. I seldom use this technique, and cannot recall a time where this technique made a major difference in treatment of whiplash. Thorough treatment of scalenes, SCM, trapezius along with gentle stretching goes a long way toward helping the anterior neck, as in whiplash. Possibility of plaque release is enough for me to consider this technique contraindicated under some conditions ...
Neck masses are common problems in infants and children. Some neck masses are congenital (present at birth) and result from abnormal formation during embryonic development. Many neck masses appear with an upper respiratory infection such as a cold or sinus infection. Some are not found until they become enlarged and painful from infection. Although a neck mass can involve other structures in the head and neck area, most are benign (noncancerous). Cancerous neck masses are rare in young infants and children, but occasionally a mass is diagnosed as Hodgkin or non-Hodgkin disease-both cancers of the lymphatic system.. Your childs physician will consider many factors when diagnosing a neck mass, including the following:. ...
Ann Arbor, Mich. - Body mass index, a well-known method used to determine overweight and obesity in children, may not be the best way to describe distribution of body fat.. Rather the size of a childs neck may better predict childhood obesity, according to a study by the University of Michigan Health System published in the August issue of Pediatrics.. BMI does not adequately describe regional distribution of fat, such as in the upper body, which is a better indicator of some obesity-related complications such as hypertension, diabetes and heart disease.. Olubukola O. Nafiu, M.D., a pediatric anesthesiologist at the U-M Health System, and his colleagues, examined the usefulness of measuring neck circumference to identify children with high BMI by taking measurements of more than 1,100 children aged 6 to 18 years old.. They found neck circumference correctly identified a high proportion of young children and adolescents who were overweight or obese. For example, a 6-year-old boy with a neck ...

Consider how you sleep: on your stomach, back, side? Now take away the pillow, bring your arms to your sides, and sit up. How does your neck position look? Is it twisted and strained? Does it look or feel like a good position to keep your neck for 6-8 hours every night? And, keep in mind, flipping to the other side doesnt make it "even!". First, lying on your side is where to start. Then, consider your pillow. Neutral is the key:. Next, as you lie on your side on your neutral pillow, pull your entire body completely straight. Once your neck is straight, rest your arms, bend your knees, relax your body to a comfortable position. But RECHECK your neck position. Most people tend to curl up once they relax. If you have tucked your chin, pull your neck back up. This might feel awkward to start, but will become part of your bedtime routine and natural after about 1-2 weeks. Heres how it looks: ...

I literally have no idea what to do, if anyone has and clues to what this may be and what to do that could point me in the correct directon that would be great, I prefer to talk about this anonymously rather than to my parents just yet. What I basically want to get out of this is to find out if anyone else has had anything else that is similar, I have tried to scan the internet for possible thing that this could be, but this does not help me psychologically at all.. The only symptoms I have are I am struggling to swallow, however apart from that over the past 5 or so weeks Ive just had a couple of sniffles, but thats it, apart from as stated above I feel perfectly fine. ...

Deep neck infections may be lethal if life‐threatening complications occur, such as descending mediastinitis, pleural empyema, pericardial effusion, epidural abscess, adult respiratory distress syndrome and septic shock, particularly in immunocompromised hosts such as diabetic patients. The occurrence of deep neck infections has been declining since the advent of antibiotic therapy; however, they do still occur and represent challenging diagnostic and treatment cases. The authors describe a case of a 63‐year‐old woman with type 2 diabetes mellitus diagnosed 10 years ago treated with oral antidiabetic drugs with poor glycemic control (HbA1c=9.2%) that was admitted in Otolaryngology department for surgical drainage of a deep neck infection with unclear source. The neck CT scan showed a right parapharyngeal abscess with 13mm diameter with slight compression of the upper airway, extending to the lower edge of the right lobe of the thyroid gland with a longitudinal extent of about 85mm.

Misalignments in that area have been demonstrated to cause ringing in the ears and other ear related symptoms ...
A lot of organs and tissues are consisted in the neck such as the spinal cord, esophagus, invertebral discs, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels. The neck is located in an unprotected area and is relatively exposed which makes it potentially at high risk for injury in any form.

Through the Brain Stem…. The Brain stem is an extension of the brain itself that extends down into the upper neck area (upper cervical spine). The brain stem is susceptible to injury if the Atlas or Axis the top two bones in the spine are twisted or tilted as a result of traumatic accidents or injuries. Most of these injuries are to the head or neck. Examples would be car accidents, falls, diving accidents, surfing injuries, snowboarding falls, childhood falls from trees, off bikes, changing tables and more.. The common denominator is a injury that has torn loose the tissue that holds the spine in place in the upper neck which creates a weakness, which will allow the weight of the head (10-14 lbs) to become displaced from its normal position. This misalignment of the head and neck relationship can be as little as 3/4 of degree and the brain will have to adapt to this new position. Our eyes and ears are created to be balanced. When the head is not balanced properly compensations will develop ...
In the situation of any permanent head or neck swelling whether the cause is known or unknown, the diagnoses of lymphedema must be considered There are several groups of people who experience head or neck swelling from known causes, but it doesnt go away or unknown causes where the swelling can actually get worse as time goes by. Group One This group includes those who have had the injuries, infections, insect bites, trauma to the leg, surgeries or reaction to a medication. When this swelling does not go away, and becomes permanent it is called secondary lymphedema. Group Two Another group that experiences permanent head or neck swelling are cancer patients, people who are morbidly obese, or those with the condition called lepedema (usually limbs). What causes the swelling to remain permanent is that the lymph system has been so damaged that it can no longer operate normally in removing the bodys waste fluid. In cancer patients this is the result of either removal of the lymph nodes for cancer ...
