Background : Conservation laryngectomy is an alternative for organ preservation treatment of early laryngeal cancer beside radiotherapy with a comparable oncological result. However, result of this treatment option in Srinagarind Hospital has never been reported.
Objective : To study the result of conservation laryngec tomy in both oncologic and functional aspect
Design : Retrospective, descriptive study
Setting : Patients who diagnosed as laryngeal cancer and underwent conservation laryngectomy
Intervention : Conservation larygectomy
Measurements : Recurrent rate or cure rate and laryngeal function (deglutition without aspiration, respiration and phonation)
Results : There are 9 cases in 10 year period underwent vertical hemilaryngectomy, supraglottic laryngectomy and supracricoid laryngectomy 3 cases each. There is only one case who underwent supraglottic laryngectomy had recurrence at primary site and one case of stage III cancer and underwent supracricoid laryngectomy had recurrence at primary site and one case of stage III cancer and underwent supracricoid laryngectomy died from lung metastasis. All cases can be preserved all functions of larynx including deglutition without aspiration, normal nasal breathing without tracheotomy tuge and communicable voice.
Conclusions : Conservation laryngectomy is a considerable option for laryngeal preservation in treatment of laryngeal cancer beside radiotherapy.
