supracricoid laryngectomy

supracricoid laryngectomy

Surgical oncology A procedure for managing laryngeal CA, in which the entire larynx is removed except arytenoids and cricoid cartilage which, with an intact base of tongue, preserves the voice, albeit with a breathy texture, retains the airway and, for most Pts, allows safe deglutition. See Head and neck cancer.
