Abstract

CO(2) laser has become a common surgical technique in the management of glottic cancer. The patients treated with this modality may benefit from additional phonosurgical techniques used to improve postoperative vocal outcome.The aim of this article was to review those phonosurgical techniques described for glottic reconstruction after CO(2) laser excision of glottic cancer. The indications for using each technique are discussed, with particular attention paid to functional outcomes following these reconstructive efforts.
