Abstract

Sub-total laryngectomy (crico-hyoido-pexy and crico-hyoido-epiglotto-pexi), while achieving a radical oncological control results in a functional neolarynx efficacious in swallowing as well as in phonatory activities. 102 out of the 122 patients, treated with sub-total laryngectomy, underwent functional evaluations: the results appear to be extremely variable within each group. A better performance in crico-hyoido-epiglotto-pexi (CHEF) rather than in cricohyoido-pexi (CHP) has been observed in these patients. However, a good life quality and social rehabilitation was assured to patients in both cases.
