Lateral cervical approach for supracricoid partial laryngectomy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The supracricoid partial laryngectomy has been described for the treatment of T3 laryngeal glottic and supraglottic tumors as well as upfront and salvage surgery. Good oncological and functional outcomes are expected, while the post-operative rehabilitation can be quite difficult for the patient. Early and late complications can occur especially in salvage surgery. Neck dissection according to the T stage is often associated with the resection of the primary tumor. OBJECTIVE: To verify the feasibility of a minimally invasive procedure for supracricoid partial laryngectomy by adopting the lateral cervical approach. METHODS/RESULTS: A 61-year old man affected by a cT3N0 glottic cancer already treated 10years prior with radiotherapy for oropharyngeal cancer underwent supracricoid laryngectomy using the lateral approach. The key point of the procedure was a subfascial dissection with the harvesting of anterior cervical flap including skin, fat, platysma, fascia superficialis, anterior jugular veins, homo- and sterno-hyoid muscles. CONCLUSION: Supracricoid laryngectomy by a lateral approach is feasible and safe; it allows to perform a simultaneous neck dissection and the removal of the entire laryngeal specimen preserving ample healthy tissue compared to the classic anterior approach.
