Care must be exercised in the interpretation of tests of statistical signiﬁcance. For example, if differences exist in the patient and disease characteristics of two treatment groups, a statistically signiﬁcant difference in survival results may primarily reﬂect differences between the two patient series, rather than differences in efﬁcacy of the treatment regimens. The more deﬁnitive approach to therapy evaluation requires a randomized clinical trial that helps to ensure comparability of the patient characteristics and the disease characteristics of the two treatment groups.
The relative survival rate is calculated using a procedure described by Ederer et al. The relative survival rate represents the likelihood that a patient will not die from causes associated speciﬁcally with the cancer at some speciﬁed time after diagnosis. It is always greater than the observed survival rate for the same group of patients. If the group is sufﬁciently large and the patients are roughly representative of the population of the USA (taking race, sex, and age into account), the relative survival rate provides a useful estimate of the probability of escaping death from the speciﬁc cancer under study.
Thus, sublevel VA includes the spinal accessory nodes, whereas sublevel VB includes the nodes following the transverse cervical vessels and the supraclavicular nodes, with the exception of the Virchow node, which is located in level IV. The posterior triangle nodes are at greatest risk for harboring metastases from cancers arising from the nasopharynx, oropharynx, and cutaneous structures of the posterior scalp and neck. Anterior Compartment group (level VI) Lymph nodes in this compartment include the pretracheal and paratracheal nodes, precricoid (Delphian) node, and the perithyroidal nodes including the lymph nodes along the recurrent laryngeal nerves.
