Practical Guide to Neck Dissection: Focusing on the Larynx

Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, Feb 11, 2013 - Medical - 268 pages
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.
