Reported complete response in 72 % of 81 patients with lymph node metastases [25]. Among these, 5 % had recurrence in the neck. 3-year neck control was 94 %, and 86 % for <3-cm and >3-cm lymph nodes, 36 G. Ozyigit et al. respectively. In Mayo Clinic’s study, 5-year neck recurrence-free survivals in patients treated with neck dissection only were 76 % for N1, 60 % for N2, and 69 % overall [26]. If neck dissection is “planned” after RT, doses of 50–70 Gy are delivered according to the size and the mobility of the lymph nodes [27].

Neoadjuvant treatment strategies for tumor reduction before surgery have yet to gain acceptance in locoregionally advanced head and neck squamous cell cancers. But the optimal sequencing of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery has still remained a subject of controversy for several decades. Concomitant chemoradiotherapy has been shown to improve survival and is considered a standard treatment for locoregionally advanced head and neck squamous cell cancers. Induction chemotherapy protocols before radiotherapy have been used in patients with high risk of distant metastases or for extensive laryngeal cancers, prior to definitive treatment.
