Head and neck cancer treatment is based on appropriate planning through a multidisciplinary team and includes surgical, radiotherapeutic and chemotherapeutic strategies aimed at both the primary site and the neck. Neck dissection (ND) has been shown to improve survival in cases of neck metastases, even if occult. The most significant functional impact following ND is impairment of shoulder function as a consequence of spinal accessory nerve injury.
