The objective of this paper is to show that platysma flaps have good results and should be an alternative in reconstructive surgery for oral tumors when microsurgery is not possible. It is a versatile...
Robotic-assisted thyroid surgery using a retroauricular approach was reported as a novel remote access technique for hemithyroidectomy. We report our experience with this remote access technique using...
Background: In a previous study of robot-assisted neck dissection (RAND), we limited the indication for neck dissection (ND) in clinical N0 head and neck cancer (HNC). Here, we compare the results of...
Reconstruction of oral soft-tissue defects following resection of oral carcinomas can be achieved using various techniques including microsurgical tissue transfer. However, there seems to be a role fo...

Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
General or unspecified injuries to the neck. It includes injuries to the skin, muscles, and other soft tissues of the neck.
The resection or removal of the nerve to an organ or part. (Dorland, 28th ed)
