Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2006;132(8):881-882. doi:10.1001/archotol.132.8.881-c

Santa Lucia Hospital, Rome, Italy;

“La Sapienza” University, Rome

Objective: To evaluate the long-term swallowing status and the radiological manifestations of chronic aspiration in patients who have undergone supracricoid partial laryngectomy and to demonstrate that this procedure causes a mild and well-tolerated grade of chronic aspiration that does not require a nothing-by-mouth status.

Design: Cohort study. The follow-up period ranged from 3 to 13 years.
