  • Defining similarities and differences between human patients and animals regarding this disease in order to use, if that were the case, brachiocephalic dogs as animal model in treatment options of human disease.
  • Validating diagnostic accuracy of sentinel ganglion in pharyngeal-laryngeal carcinoma T1-2 N0 as stadiage tool, through a lympho-gammagraphy with SPECT-TC the day before the operation and the surgical localization of sentinel ganglion through a probe during the surgery.
  • Determining the prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux in patients diagnosed with conventional sleep obstructive apnea syndrome, and evaluating effectiveness of symptom quest in gastroesophageal reflux diagnosis in these patients.
