Background: The aim was to determine the reliability and reproducibility of sentinel node biopsy (SNB) as a staging tool in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) for T1/2 clinically N0 patients by means of a standardized technique. Methods: Between June 1998 and June 2002, 227 SNB procedures have been performed in HNSCC cases at six centers. One(More)
Sentinel node biopsy (SNB) is a new technique in staging the clinically N0 neck. On June 25 and 26, 2001, the First International Conference on Sentinel Node Biopsy in Mucosal Head and Neck Cancer took place in Glasgow, United Kingdom. Twenty-two centers contributed results on the use of SNB as a staging tool in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. The(More)
Background: The management of the N0 neck in oral and oropharyngeal cancer is often determined by the risk of metastases related to features of the primary tumor. Where the risk of metastases is >20%, elective neck dissection (END) has been advocated. This study reviewed clinical staging, surgical staging, pathologic staging, and histopathologic parameters(More)
