Abstract
The aim of this study was to evaluate the technical feasibility and safety of robot-assisted modified radical neck dissection (MRND) for head and neck cancer patients with a clinically node-positive neck. The cases of 10 head and neck cancer patients who underwent unilateral therapeutic robot-assisted MRND by post auricular facelift approach were analyzed. The robot-assisted MRND was completed successfully in all patients without any conversion to conventional neck dissection. The mean number of lymph nodes removed was 36.7 +/- 8.6. The mean duration of surgery for robot-assisted MRND was 274 65 min (range 175-395 min). Transient marginal nerve palsy occurred in two patients and partial necrosis of the skin flap occurred in one patient. In terms of cosmetic satisfaction, 70% of patients were very satisfied or satisfied with postoperative cosmesis. In conclusion, robot-assisted MRND by post-auricular facelift approach is technically feasible and safe in selected patients with head-and neck cancer, and yields excellent postoperative cosmesis.
