As for any other human activity, approaching perfection requires a balanced combination of ideas and skills. This is achieved only by putting together the technical details with the spirit of the procedure. This is what we call functional neck dissection. Evolution of Functional Neck Dissection Osvaldo Sua´ rez did a fine job with functional neck dissection. He had a thorough knowledge of neck anatomy, was a great surgeon, and designed a new approach to the lymphatic system of the neck for patients with head and neck cancer.

This update of the original classification includes a subzone separation for some of the original levels and uses anatomical structures depicted radiologically to define boundaries between various neck levels to accurately designate image-depicted nodes (Figs. 2-7A, 2-7B). Level I is subdivided into   IA: submental lymph nodes IB: submandibular lymph nodes Black plate (31,1) RATIONALE AND ANATOMICAL BASIS FOR FUNCTIONAL AND SELECTIVE NECK DISSECTION 31 Figure 2-7 Division of nodal groups by subzones.

With this modification, each side of the neck actually has nine different lymphatic regions. Their combination with the various T and N stages results in a huge number of different possibilities, which seem impractical, at least, for teaching purposes. A Final Comment on the Nodal Group Classification The main use of the nodal group classification is to support the worthiness of selective neck dissections. However, the artificial nature of the division creates some inconsistencies that must be kept in mind to avoid falling into a ‘‘nodal group fundamentalism,’’ which often happens nowadays.
