Abstract

Significant refinement has occurred since 1905 regarding surgical management of the neck in patients with oral cancer. These refinements have been described and implemented in the best interests of enhancing the potential cure of these patients while also maintaining patients' function and quality of life. It is anticipated that further developments will occur in this exciting surgical discipline. In the meantime, surgeons must plan treatment strategically for the clinically negative neck with the same degree of enthusiasm as that performed for the clinically positive neck, although with different techniques.
