P028 Effectiveness of Supracricoid Partial Laryngectomy in Locally Advanced Laryngeal Cancer

Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2006;132(8):871. doi:10.1001/archotol.132.8.871-a

Objective: Supracricoid partial laryngectomy (SCPL) has been considered a good surgical procedure for satisfactory results on oncological and functional aspects in locally advanced laryngeal cancer. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the oncologic and functional results to know the efficacy and safety of SCPL in locally advanced laryngeal cancer.

Methods: Among 92 patients who underwent SCPL, 60 patients whose cancer was staged higher than T2b (with staging pathologically confirmed) underwent studies of oncologic and functional aspects. Local stages were T2b in 25 cases, T3 in 20 cases, and T4 in 15 cases. Average follow-up was 42 months.
