Describes surgical techniques for performing neck dissection on patients with head and neck cancer, and clarifies the connection between functional and selective neck dissection from historical, anatomic, and surgical standpoints. A detailed outline of the fascial layers and topographic anatomy of the neck serves as a guide in which the external and readily accessible superficial features of the neck provide landmarks for deep structures. Next, a sequence of surgical steps walks through the complete functional approach to the neck in which all cervical nodal groups are removed. A discussion of hints, pitfalls, and complications rounds out the volume. Three of the four authors are doctors of otolaryngology in Spain. Color photographs.
