Summary of "Establishing the robotic surgery procedure and techniques for head and neck tumors: a single surgeon's experience of 945 cases."

We suggested operative techniques and indications of robotic neck surgery. To determine operative techniques and the indications for robotic neck surgery, we analyzed treatment outcomes of patients who received robotic neck surgery. Between May 2010 and July 2018, a total of 945 patients with various neck diseases visited Severance Hospital and underwent robotic neck surgery. A variety of approaches, including the retroauricular approach (RA), modified facelift approach (MFLA), transaxillary approach (TA), and transaxillary retroauricular approach (TARA), was used to remove various tumors in the neck. A total of 235 patients underwent a robotic neck dissection (elective or therapeutic) in the treatment of head and neck cancer with metastatic cervical lymph nodes. Five hundred-seventeen patients underwent robotic thyroidectomy or parathyroidectomy for thyroid or parathyroid disease, respectively. The remaining 193 patients underwent robotic neck surgery in the treatment of other neck diseases. Various neck lesions were successfully excised using RA or MFLA (including salivary gland tumors, thyroid tumors, vascular tumors, neurogenic tumors, lipomas, lymphangiomas, venous malformations, dermoid cysts, and others). Robotic neck surgery is a feasible and safe technique for the resection of various head and neck tumors. This method could be particularly useful in young patients with thyroid tumors, salivary gland tumors, and vascular tumors, among others, because it does not leave a visible scar on the face or neck. The superior visualization and articulate robotic arm that moves freely at various angles allows surgeons to perform delicate and precise surgeries.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Soft tissue tumors or cancer arising from the mucosal surfaces of the LIP; oral cavity; PHARYNX; LARYNX; and cervical esophagus. Other sites included are the NOSE and PARANASAL SINUSES; SALIVARY GLANDS; THYROID GLAND and PARATHYROID GLANDS; and MELANOMA and non-melanoma skin cancers of the head and neck. (from Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 4th ed, p1651)

A symptom, not a disease, of a twisted neck. In most instances, the head is tipped toward one side and the chin rotated toward the other. The involuntary muscle contractions in the neck region of patients with torticollis can be due to congenital defects, trauma, inflammation, tumors, and neurological or other factors.

Discharge of cerebrospinal fluid through the nose. Common etiologies include trauma, neoplasms, and prior surgery, although the condition may occur spontaneously. (Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 1997 Apr;116(4):442-9)

Pathologic processes that affect patients after a surgical procedure. They may or may not be related to the disease for which the surgery was done, and they may or may not be direct results of the surgery.
