Abstract

The RPA classification system for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma in the postoperative setting, which was originally designed at one center, proved to be valid in a multicenter setting among patients included in a national multicenter study. This validated RPA classification scheme can be used to assess standard treatment strategies for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma in the postoperative setting, as well as in the design of future prospective studies.
