This brilliantly illustrated manual is a road map for the surgeon who wishes to perform a dissection exercise on the neck in the anatomic theatre. It guides the reader step by step through the cervical structures, the aim being to improve his/her technical skills in surgical practice in the operating room. This book is divided into sections, beginning with the most superficial structures, and then progressing to the deepest planes. The structures warranting the most surgical-anatomic attention and interest are identified. Regional 'visits' are supported by concise, reader-friendly reference to normal human anatomy, physiology, practical indications, and tips on operating techniques. Special attention is given to oncological matters of the neck, as this is the prevalent interest of the author. This guide offers valuable support to all surgeons for the identification of relevant and significant anatomical neck structures, and therefore helps to improve surgical skills and avoid surgical complications.
