Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2006;132(8):841. doi:10.1001/archotol.132.8.841-b

Objective: To explore the reliability of clinical/radiologic examination in determining the presence of viable tumor in the neck after primary concurrent chemotherapy and radiation therapy (CTRT) for squamous cell carcinoma of the larynx and pharynx (SCCLP) and its prognostic significance.

Design: Retrospective review.

Setting: Tertiary care cancer center.

Patients: A total of 205 patients met the eligibility criteria for receiving CTRT for SCCLP at a single institution between 1995 and 2005. Fifty-three patients who received a comprehensive neck dissection (ND) after CTRT were included in this analysis.
