Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate clinical outcomes and pronouncing and swallowing functions after supracricoid partial laryngectomy (SCPL).

METHOD:

Eight-five cases underwent supracricoid partial laryngectomy from 1990 to 2008 were reviewed.

RESULTS:

The 3- and 5-year accumulative survival rates were 90.4% and 81.6%, respectively. 97.6% (83/85) patients were decannulated. 89.4% (76/85) were able to eat normally within 6 weeks after surgery and the swallowing functions in the rest patients were recovered by training in different time after surgery. Fiber laryngoscope showed the reconstructed throats could close well with good swallowing functions six months after the operation.

CONCLUSION:

SCPL is a good choice in selected cases with laryngeal cancer, with satisfactory pronouncing and swallowing functions after surgery.
