Neck Dissection

Cutting-edge neck dissection resource provides expert guidance on its use in a wide spectrum of head and neck pathologies Dissection of critical structures of the neck is integral to head and neck surgery, for both benign and malignant neck masses and diagnoses of the head, skull base, and cervicothoracic junction. Neck Dissection by Brendan Stack and Mauricio Moreno is a comprehensive treatise on state-of-the-art neck dissection. With contributions from an impressive cadre of international leaders in head and neck surgery, this in-depth, yet concise evidence-based guide covers fundamental and advanced principles of cervical lymphadenopathy surgery. The book begins with preoperative evaluation of cervical lymphadenopathy candidates, history of procedures, international nodal level classifications, and surgical neck anatomy. Subsequent chapters address the subtleties between different dissection modalities including radical, modified radical, selective, supraomohyoid, and salvage, as well as insights on complications and rehabilitation. Current imaging methods are discussed in context with anatomical structures and malignancies, including cross-sectional, ultrasound, and integrated FDG-PET/CT. Pathology and adjuvant therapies for malignant diseases of the neck are also discussed. Key Features The latest advances in immunology and cell signaling of neck metastatic disease, related to cervical lymph node and extracapsular spread Anatomic and pathophysiologic nuances encountered in the treatment of squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, salivary gland malignancies, and thyroid carcinomas Special topics such as prophylactic neck dissection, robotics, intraoperative nerve monitoring, adjuvant therapy for neck nodal disease, and histopathologic neck dissection evaluation Over 200 radiographs and illustrations, as well as online supplementary video material enhance understanding of impacted anatomy and procedures All clinicians involved in the interdisciplinary diagnosis and treatment of head and neck pathologies will benefit from this outstanding operative guide.

Functional and Selective Neck Dissection

Illuminating neck dissection resource presents innovative techniques and insightful clinical pearls! This updated second edition of Functional and Selective Neck Dissection by Javier Gavilán, Alejandro Castro, Laura Rodrigáñez, and Jesús Herranz presents a unique point of view based on fascial dissection techniques developed by several generations of renowned surgeons at La Paz University Hospital. The book lays a foundation with in-depth discussion of fascial compartmentalization of the neck. The text covers the evolution of modern neck dissection, from George Crile in 1906 to current cutting-edge procedures, and details the transition from radical neck dissection to a less aggressive, equally effective approach for treating lymph node metastases in head and neck cancer. The relationship between functional and selective neck dissection is discussed from a pragmatic and nonconventional perspective, elucidating the connection from historical, anatomic, and surgical standpoints. The authors differentiate conceptual approaches, keystones in the evolution of scientific knowledge from surgical techniques, technical variations of a standard procedure designed to most effectively resolve a problem. The primary goal is providing the reader with expert guidance on a full spectrum of fundamental surgical techniques. Key Highlights Sequential operative photographs of actual procedures performed by the authors complemented by stellar illustrations further understanding of techniques Less radical operations discussed from American and Latin perspectives, ensuring a complete picture and integration of well-rounded best practices A chapter dedicated to hints and pitfalls offers insightful technical advice and precautions acquired through decades of practice Frequently asked questions and answers afford key insights on important surgical decisions, while suggested readings provide additional helpful materials This is an indispensable resource for practicing head and neck surgeons who treat patients with malignant tumors.

Dr. Jatin P. Shah has brought together contributing authors in a single volume that represents the head and neck management team at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. The strength of the volume is in its internal consistency of diagnostic approaches, therapeutic decisions, multidisciplinary treatment programs, and surgical techniques. An effort has also been made to be comprehensive and to give a balanced view to other treatment approaches. Essential to the diagnosis and treatment of the disease is the involvement of a multidisciplinary management team of medical experts. Such disease management teams develop treatment algorithms and establish treatment guidelines to unify an approach to maintain internal consistency, initiate investigative protocols, and push the frontiers in the battle against cancer.
