The objective of this study is to identify outcome measures for cancer control in Head and Neck cancer patient populations at the University of Pennsylvania (HUP, PAH, Presby) by administering various functional outcome surveys and questionnaires about their reconstructive surgery. We hope to ultimately develop a QOL indicator that will reflect the impact of reconstructive surgery on patient's quality of life, and help with therapeutic interventions and explanation of expectations prior to surgery.

Study summary:

Few studies examine quality of life outcome measures with initial diagnosis, surgical procedures,perioperative measures (such as use of perioperative blood transfusion or pressors), and outcomes for cancer control and free flap survival. This sub-protocol, in conjunction with protocol #816676 (Otorhinolaryngology Research Registry) will serve as a hypothesis generating study for future research on reconstructive free flap surgery outcomes by narrowing down existing questionnaires to tailor it specifically for these patients.


Inclusion Criteria: - Subjects who have consented to Otorhinolaryngology Research Registry and are undergoing free flap surgery. Exclusion Criteria: - No children, pregnant women, or prisoners will be consented.
