Impact of podoplanin expression in oral squamous cell carcinoma: clinical and histopathologic correlations
Cervical lymph node metastases reduce the overall survival of patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) and require a neck dissection. However, elective management of a clinical N0 neckExpand
