AIM To assess the metastatic topography of intraparotideal and neck lymph nodes in parotid cancer and its influence on tumour recurrence and survival. METHODS The lymph node spread of 142 patients with primary parotid carcinoma treated from 1986 to 2006 was analysed. Disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS) were calculated. The role of the metastatic pattern as prognostic factors were univariately and multivariately analysed. RESULTS A lateral, total or radical parotidectomy… CONTINUE READING
