Abstract

Background: The neck dissection classification is based considerably on the organization of the lymph nodes of the neck. Terminology and anatomical allocation of nearly 300 cervicofacial lymph nodes repeatedly changed since the beginning of the 20th century. Methods: Analysis of the literature on neck lymph node organization with reference to the development of the neck dissection classification. Results: The first fundamental nomenclature of the neck lymphnodes is founded on the work of Rouviere (1932). Suarez (1963) described the functional neck dissection on the basis of the fascial compartmentalization of the neck. Lindberg (1972) left the predominantly anatomically correlated grouping of the cervical lymph nodes as described by Rouviere and divided the lymphatic system of the neck on basis of pathophysiological mechanisms. The attention regarding the location of occult metastases led to the description of the selective neck dissection. Since the fundamental work of Shah et al. (1981) there was a multiplicity of more or less slight changes of the neck node regions. These changes were again basis for newneck dissection terminologies. A new classification was introduced in the year 2000 as the revised version of the American Head and Neck Society. Conclusions: The revised version of the neck dissection classification can reduce former controversies, particularly regarding an optimized intraoperative allocation of the lymph nodes and a simplified terminology of the selective neck dissection. With the goal of a standardization of the neck dissection forms it remains to be seen if the proponents of the functional neck dissection after Suarez consider the extent of the neck dissection in patientswith NO neck in favor of the selective neck dissection.
