CARCINOMA OF THE LARYNX. DR. ALFRED LEWY.
The patient had a squamous cell carcinoma involving both sides of the larynx, but intrinsic. A laryngectomy was done under avertin, supplemented by local anesthesia, which was successful, except for severe paroxysms of coughing during the separation of the larynx from the esophagus, which could not be controlled by local applications of cocaine. The esophagus was button-holed during the dissection. This was repaired, and healing was uneventful.
