  • METHOD AND MATERIALS: Between 1983-1989, 80 patients were entered onto larynx preservation protocols involving 1-3 cycles of cisplatin based chemotherapy followed by radiation therapy with or without neck dissection [19].
  • Three to 4 weeks later, radical surgery of the primary site and neck dissections for patients presenting with cervical adenopathy was undertaken or if a complete response had been achieved, continued with radiation to 72 Gy with another course of concurrent continuous infusion cis-platinum [20].
  • Eight goats were anaesthetized with isoflurane and neck dissections performed which allowed cranial bypass [21].
  • In eight patients undergoing radical neck dissection, 1.8 ml of lidocaine with epinephrine or its control was injected into the sternocleidomastoid muscle approximately 18 hours before surgery [22].
  • METHODS: In 5 patients, technetium 99m-labeled particles were injected close to the operation scar on the day before neck dissection, and the labeled neck nodes were revealed by lymphoscintigraphy [23].
