Abstract

The supraclavicular fossa is an area of great surgical interest but difficult to approach due to the abundance of vascular and nervous elements found at this level. With the development of new technologies, the surgeon gains greater safety in the wound by reducing the operating time, the degree of bleeding, as well as by obtaining better control over the anatomical elements found in this area and reducing the risk of perioperative complications. This paper aims to express the results about surgical technologies used in the approach of the supraclavicular fossa obtained from quantitative and qualitative analysis after an observational and descriptive study, in which data collection was done retrospectively (data was collected from medical observation charts and operating protocols which dated before the start of the study) and prospectively (patients were admitted to the study after the study began), conducted in “Prof. Dr. D. HociotăInstitute of Phonoaudiology and Functional ENT Surgery, between 2010 and 2021. The use and control of surgical technologies encountered in the study is directly dependent on the accessibility and experience of the surgeon and must involve constant analysis of the benefit of their use at the expense of risks and possible complications that may occur.
