Analysis of postoperative complications of open partial laryngectomy
He subsequently had right vertical partial laryngectomy
Larynx and Hypopharynx: Vocal cord tumours, hemangioma of the CO2 and KTP Lasers larynx, glottic web (iatrogenic or congenital), Partial laryngectomy
and hypopharyngeal tumours.
Surgery for recurrent laryngeal carcinoma after radiotherapy: Partial laryngectomy
or total laryngectomy for a better quality of life?
Surgical options vary according to the site of the lesion and range from conservative procedures, such as microlaryngeal surgery (MLS), laser debulking, vertical partial laryngectomy
(VPL), and simple partial laryngectomy
(SPL), to aggressive procedures, such as TL.
Options include open laryngofissure, thyrotomy, organ preservation with partial laryngectomy, and endoscopic laser resection.
Total laryngectomy is indicated for large primary tumors, such as those that involve more than half of the cricoid cartilage and for recurrent tumors not amenable to partial laryngectomy.
Some have recommended a partial laryngectomy
resection for low-grade supraglottic tumors and a total laryngectomy for subglottic tumors.
Both patients were treated with supracricoid partial laryngectomy
However, some recent reports suggest that endolaryngeal resection or partial laryngectomy
results in better functional outcomes whenever the extent of the disease permits.
We conducted a study to evaluate the effectiveness of muscle-pedicle hyoid bone flaps in the repair and reconstruction of the larynx and trachea in 23 patients who had undergone extended partial laryngectomy
3,4) Supracricoid partial laryngectomy
obviates the need for permanent tracheostomy, does not result in significant swallowing dysfunction, and preserves reasonable voice quality.
