A conservation approach to pharyngeal carcinoma with advanced neck disease: optimizing neck management

Published inHead & neck, vol. 21, no. 3, p. 217-222
Publication date1999
Abstract

Surgical management of advanced neck disease remains controversial when a conservative approach based on radiotherapy is retained for primary tumors. The objective of this study was to evaluate retrospectively treatment results in pharyngeal cancers presenting with N2-N3 neck disease, using neck dissection followed by radical locoregional radiotherapy (RT) and to compare these results with those obtained in patients treated by radical RT alone.
