Abstract

Originally developed as a technique of monoblock lymphadenectomy for head and neck malignancies, radical neck dissection has been increasingly modified to minimize morbid dysfunction and disfigurement while preserving diagnostic and therapeutic integrity. Indications for the original radical procedure still exist in certain cases of cervical metastasis and are reviewed here, along with detailed surgical technique for the procedure. Contraindications and complications are also addressed.
