25 Scopus citations


Injury to peripheral nerves was assessed in patients undergoing radical neck dissections. Although patients had few complaints, there was extensive damage to peripheral nerves, including the seventh, ninth, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth cranial nerves, the upper and midcervical roots, plexuses, and nerves, and the cervical sympathetic nerves. The pattern of neural involvement was similar in all patients and deviations from the pattern suggest recurrent tumor.
