Background: The purpose was to compare survival differences between patients with external auditory canal (EAC) cancer treated according to the University of Pittsburgh modified TNM staging system and those treated in accordance with the 8th edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging manual on the TNM staging system for cutaneous cancers of the head and neck Conclusion: The predictive performance of the modified Pittsburgh classification system as such appears to be acceptable to predict the DFS of EAC SCC. Other fac-tors need to be added to a future model to improve the predicted performance. KEYWORDS disease-free survival, neoplasm staging, prognosis, squamous cell carcinoma, temporal bon Survival outcome according to the University of Pittsburgh modified TNM staging system. The 5-year OS rates based on the University of Pittsburgh modified TNM staging system were 94.1% for T1, 80.8% for T2, 62.5% for T3, and 46.3% for T4 (Fig. 1a) The Pittsburgh staging system was modified by the authors after further review of patients from an extended series. In the modified staging system, facial nerve weakness is considered a criterion for a T4 lesion. The authors observed that facial nerve paresis did not occur in lesions otherwise classified as limited T1, T2, or T3 lesions
. Although there is no universally accepted staging system, the modified Pittsburgh staging system is valuable for clinical decision‑making (8). Surgery is the mainstay of treatment for early stage EACC (9) Subjects were 41 patients, consisting of 21 men and 20 women with a mean age of 63.2 years. Modified Pittsburgh staging system: stage I in 11 cases (27%), stage II in 4 (10%), stage III in 6 (15%) and stage IV in 20 (49%). Histopa- thology: squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in 35 cases, adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) in 3, and adenocarcinoma (AC) in 3

Dr. Cheng is the author of the Cheng Lymphedema Grading System with integration of Taiwan Lymphoscintigraphy Staging which was published in Annals of Surgery (the top Surgery Journal) in July 2018. The Cheng Lymphedema Grading System with integration of Taiwan Lymphoscintigraphy Staging, a comprehensive objective assessment tool that analyzes. . 17. What are the limitations in That accepted staging system : Many studies in the past have validated the usefulness of the modified Pittsburgh T staging and reported a good correlation. The EAC ACC was staged using the modified Pittsburgh staging system , . The associations among otalgia, perineural invasion, and histological subtypes were analyzed statistically using SPSS 19.0 version (IBM, New York, USA). Fisher's exact test was used to compare the variables. A p-. The clinical staging was performed according to the modified Pittsburgh staging system, because a recent study had been reported the clinical usefulness of that staging system . Acute and late adverse events were graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events, version 4.0 In the present study, T classification by the modified Pittsburgh staging system was also confirmed as a prognostic factor by multivariate analysis of all 95 patients. Of note, the oncological outcome of the patients with T 4 was extremely poor compared with that for patients with T 1, T 2 and T 3 disease
. in 2000 , which is based on physical examination, preoperative CT, and the presence of facial paralysis. 14 Table 1 . Modified Pittsburgh staging system for temporal bone carcinomas The patients were staged according to the modified Pittsburgh staging system. Five patients with T1 cancers underwent local resection (LR), and 10 patients with T1 cancers underwent lateral temporal bone resection (LTBR). Two patients with T2 cancers underwent LR, and 1 patient with T2 cancer underwent LTBR..
For primary temporal bone malignancies, however, the most widely used staging system is the Pittsburgh staging system (PSS), which was originally published by Arriaga et al 20 in 1990. Although the PSS is based on data from patients with SCC, it is currently used to stage other tumor histologic types as well Purpose: To evaluate surgical outcomes for adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) of the external auditory canal (EAC). Methods: Forty-three patients with ACC of the EAC in Eye and ENT Hospital of Fudan University were analyzed retrospectively for survival. The patients were staged according to the modified Pittsburgh staging system. Thirteen patients with T1 stage underwent local resection (LR), 6. A retrospective study was performed on 66 patients between 1993 and 2018. Patients were staged according to the University of Pittsburgh-modified TNM staging system. Nine cases (13.6%) were Stage I, 7 cases (10.6%) Stage II, 20 cases (30.3%) Stage III and 30 cases (45.5%) Stage IV Table 1 Modified University of Pittsburgh Staging System for SCC of the temporal bone Published in Otolaryngologic clinics of North America 2015 Squamous cell carcinoma of the temporal bone Seventy-two patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the temporal bone were analyzed for survival. The patients were staged according to the modified Pittsburgh staging system. Five patients with T1 cancers underwent local resection (LR), and 10 patients with T1 cancers underwent lateral temporal bone resection (LTBR)
The modified Pittsburgh staging system was used for staging of the patients. Overall and disease-free survival was estimated using of Kaplan-Meier method. In our cohort of 25 patients, the majority (76%) had tumor located in external auditory meatus. The most common histologic subtype was squamous cell carcinoma (80%) Although no staging system for EAC carcinomas is currently recognized by either the Union for International Cancer Control or the American Joint Committee on Cancer, a comprehensive staging system developed by Arria-ga et al.  and later modified by Moody et al. , namely the Pittsburgh Tumor Staging System, is most widely used [4,5]. I The modified Pittsburgh staging of squamous cell cancer of the temporal bone classifies patients who present with facial paralysis as T4 tumors . The treatment of squamous cell cancer of the external auditory canal depends on the staging of the tumor which includes lymph nodes metastasis and facial nerve involvement BackgroundThe purpose was to compare survival differences between patients with external auditory canal (EAC) cancer treated according to the University of Pittsburgh modified TNM staging system and those treated in accordance with the 8th edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging manual on the TNM staging system for cutaneous cancers of the head and neck . Patients underwent a local resection, lateral temporal bone resection, or a subtotal lateral temporal bone resection usually followed by radiotherapy. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: The survival rate of patients grouped by tumor size was calculated
A total of 45 consecutive patients with histologically confirmed TBSCC were treated surgically at our institution between 1993 and 2011. Patients were divided into 5 stage I (11.1%), 6 stage II (13.3%), 15 stage III (31.1%), and 19 stage IV tumors (42.2%) according to the University of Pittsburgh modified TNM staging system. Intervention Search for Stage systems at searchandshopping.org. Find Stage systems her Pittsburgh modified TNM staging system The distributions of T and N classifications based on the University of Pittsburgh modified TNM staging system are shown in Table 3. No patients had distant metastasis. Nineteen patients (31.7%) were categorized as stage I, 11 (18.3%) as stage II, 7 (11.6%) as stage III and 23 (38.3%) as stage IV In summary, we present a modified Table 1.

The 8th edition of the AJCC TNM staging system for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck - Comparison of the University of Pittsburgh staging system and the eighth edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer TNM classification for the prognostic evaluation of external auditory canal cance In 1990, the Pittsburgh group proposed a staging system for SCCs of the external auditory meatus based on data from 39 patients of whom 33% had had a CT scan. 2 Other authors have used this staging system. 3,4,10 A minor revision was added in 2000. 5 In the present retrospective study that includes cases from the pre-CT era we classified.
In 1989, Andrews et al. modified the original Fisch classification, based on the growth pattern of JNA to help surgeons choose access procedures. The modified staging system was named the Andrews-Fisch classification and became the most widely used staging system The most commonly used is the Pittsburgh modified by Moody et al. in 2000 , which is based on physical examination, preoperative CT, and the presence of facial paralysis. 14 Table 1 Modified Pittsburgh staging system for temporal bone carcinomas There are various staging system proposed for EAC's such as Pittsburgh staging system and other by Stell and Mc Corcmick staging system.In this study we followed the widely accepted Pittsburgh staging system [1,12,15]. In this study 20% of patients presented with T1 stage, 20% with T3 stage and 60% with T4 stage
