ESTRO 2021 Abstract Book
Results Table 1 reports the number of patients in whom a particular combination of LNLs was involved to highlighted selected findings: 1) Ipsilateral level IV was involved in 27% of patients in whom level II and III were involved, but only in 2% of patients in whom level II but not III is involved. 2) Prevalence of involvement of ipsilateral levels II, III, IV, V was 79%, 34%, 7%, 3% for early T-stage patients (T1/T2) and 85%, 50%, 17%, 9% for late T- stage (T3/T4), quantifying increasing involvement with T-stage especially for the more downstream levels. 3) Contralateral levels II, III, IV were involved in 41%, 19%, 4% for tumors with midline extension and 12%, 3%, 2% for tumors without midline extension. 4) The dataset provided no indication that LNL involvement is different for HPV positive vs negative tumors. 5) Ipsilateral level VII was involved in 10% of all patients and in 14% and 6% of patients with primary tumors in the tonsil and the base of tongue, respectively.
Conclusion Detailed reporting and quantification of LNL involvement in HNSCC depending on involvement of upstream LNLs, T-stage, primary tumor subsite, midline extension, and potential other risk factors may allow for further personalization of CTV-N definition and reduced toxicity in the future. An example is identification of patients with minimal risk of level IV involvement to allow save exclusion of level IV from the CTV-N.
