Elective cervical lymphadenectomy often is performed for laryngeal carcinoma to eliminate metastatic disease that escapes clinical and radiographic detection. We investigated characteristics of the primary tumor that might predict cervical lymph node status. We obtained archival tissue from 88 laryngectomies--65 with concurrent cervical lymphadenectomies. Of the 40 clinically negative necks that were dissected, 17% showed lymph node metastasis by pathologic examination. The primary tumors were… CONTINUE READING
