Metastasis of the Cervical Lymph Nodes: Neck-Dissection

We are pleased to have, among others, PD Dr Sergios Gatidis from Tübingen's radiology department and Prof. Dr Hubert Löwenheim (Medical Director) and Dr Stefan Wolpert from Tübingen's ENT department as guests this week.

Our patient is 54 years of age and for the last two months has had difficulties in swallowing. He is a smoker and he has also been diagnosed positive for HPVs. The ENT doctor is able to feel a mass during a physical examination. Therefore, he decides to perform further instrumental diagnostics. Tissue is also being sampled. Finally a carcinoma of the oropharynx is diagnosed; its TNM is T2/N1+/M0. Thereby the surgical removal of the cervical lymph nodes is indicated. 

Watch the following video in which professor Löwenheim explains more about the case and which anatomical landmarks you should pay attention to in preparation for this week's episode:
