For all surgeons who manage patients with head and neck cancer, this information-packed book offers both a new approach and a new philosophy of treatment-one that rejects radical procedures except in advanced disease and focuses on a combined functional and selective approach for optimal outcome. You will find the rationale, indications, surgical steps, and results of these procedures, and be better equipped to handle a wide range of complex clinical situations.Functional and Selective Neck Dissection begins with a full explanation of the fascial compartmentalization of the neck, and goes on to explain and illustrate the procedures. Step-by-step descriptions of functional dissection surgeries, demonstrated with more than 200 high-quality, sequential operative photographs and drawings, highlight and clarify all points. All head and neck surgeons, otolaryngologists, maxillofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons, and residents will find this synthesis of neck dissection techniques both informative and necessary for effective decision-making. Special features: A thorough description of the fascial anatomy of the neck, vital for facilitating an effective surgical approach in head and neck cancer patients Step-by-step surgical descriptions of functional neck dissections, augmented by hundreds of sequential operative photographs A full list of technical hints and pitfalls acquired through many years of clinical experience A unique chapter answering the most frequently asked questions about available surgical techniques A synthesis of the American and Latin viewpoints on neck dissection, key to understanding the evolution of the field and integrating the best aspects of both

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.

This is the second edition of a superbly illustrated manual on neck dissection that will serve as a roadmap for advanced surgeons and beginners alike. The reader is guided through the various cervical structures in a series of chapters depicting the methods employed by surgeons operating in vivo. The illustrations provide an overview of all surgical anatomy relevant to the treatment of oncologic patients. Compared with the first edition, revisions have been made when appropriate and an important new chapter has been added on microscopic anatomy and laryngeal cancer. This chapter, which will also be of interest to pathologists, documents the microscopic anatomy of the larynx, presents patterns of spread and surgical options, and depicts the major surgical procedures on the larynx with the aid of numerous photographs and line drawings.

Abstract : Objective: Salvage surgery has a higher complication rate compared to primary surgical treatment. We evaluated clinical outcome of salvage neck dissections in relation to initial treatment modality, extent of surgery and patient‐related factors. Design: Single institution consecutive case series. Setting: Tertiary Head and Neck Cancer Centre. Participants: In all, 87 patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, who underwent salvage neck dissection after initial radiotherapy ( n = 30), radiotherapy with carboplatin/5‐fluorouracil ( n = 43) or radiotherapy with cetuximab ( n = 14). Main outcome measures: Incidence of complications, disease‐specific survival. Results: Complications occurred in 28% of the patients. Multivariate analysis identified extent of neck dissection as the only independent predictor of surgical complications ( P = 0.010). Surgical complication rate was 16% after radiotherapy with systemic treatment, and 47% after radiotherapy alone ( P = 0.171). The 5‐year disease‐specific survival was 55%, independent of complications, initial treatment, extent of surgery and patient‐related factors. Conclusion: The only predictor for surgical complications was extent of surgery. Survival was not influenced by complications.

This new, in-depth text covers the state of the art management of cervical lymph node mestastis. Opening with coverage of the historical background to the current treatment modes, the authors outline the specific routes of metastatic disease and their surgical dissection. Detailed are therapeutic dissection techniques for thyroid cancer, salivary cancer, and melanoma by surgeons who have pioneered elective techniques for management of nodal disease, and attention is given to post-operative findings related to quality of life. Unique to this book is a discussion of neck dissection as a salvage procedure.
