The role of elective neck dissection in T1 and T2 nasal cavity squamous cell carcinomas

Abstract Purpose The aim of this paper is to investigate the effect of elective neck dissection on oncological outcomes in early-stage nasal cavity squamous cell carcinomas. Methods In total, 87 patients with T1 and T2 SCCs were evaluated regarding END, regional recurrences, and their impact on cancer-specific survival. To identify patients who might profit from END and determine the corresponding numbers needed to prevent RR, we developed a risk score based on T-classification, tumor subsite, and grading. In none of the patients with no or poor risk scores, compared to 31. 6% in patients with high risk scores, RR occurred in none of the patients with no or low risk scores, compared to 31. 6% in patients with high risk scores. Compared to a total NNT of 8 for the whole cohort, three high-risk patients will need to have END to avoid RR. The importance of END is currently underestimated, and our new risk score helps identify those patients who will benefit from END.
