Abstract: Background/Aims: Swallowing problems and malnutrition are common in advanced head and neck (HN) cancer. The aim of paper I was to study whether percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) affected the long-term swallowing function. Phase angle (PA) is a measure of the electrical permeability of tissues and has been found to be a prognostic factor in different diseases; the aim of papers II-III was to investigate the PA in HN cancer. Head and neck cancer of unknown primary (HNCUP) is a rare type of... more
