Purpose: The aim of the study is to illustrate our experience with horizontal glottectomy (HG), reviewing the indications and results of this uncommon partial laryngectomy. Materials and Methods: It is a retrospective study. We completed a chart review of patients who underwent partial laryngectomy between May 2003 and June 2010. Patients who underwent HG were included in the study. Data obtained were collected and analyzed. Results: Seven male patients were included in the study (mean age was 78 years; range, 69-88 years). In all cases, the TNM classification was pT1bN0M0 apart from one patient who had pT1N1MO. Three patients had a moderately differentiated neoplasm (G2), whereas 4 patients had a well-differentiated tumor (G1). Tracheotomy tube removal, oral feeding, and voice analysis have been evaluated and reported in the study. Mean follow-up was 16 months. Conclusions: Horizontal glottectomy might be a worthwhile treatment option in selected patients nowadays. In older patients with anterior commissure involvement, this procedure guarantees adequate functional and good oncological results. This study may possibly help surgeons dealing with glottic cancer involving the anterior commissure because we believe that some patients could benefit from HG, even in this radiotherapy and transoral laser surgery "era."

Abstract

Purpose: The aim of the study is to illustrate our experience with horizontal glottectomy (HG), reviewing the indications and results of this uncommon partial laryngectomy. Materials and Methods: It is a retrospective study. We completed a chart review of patients who underwent partial laryngectomy between May 2003 and June 2010. Patients who underwent HG were included in the study. Data obtained were collected and analyzed. Results: Seven male patients were included in the study (mean age was 78 years; range, 69-88 years). In all cases, the TNM classification was pT1bN0M0 apart from one patient who had pT1N1MO. Three patients had a moderately differentiated neoplasm (G2), whereas 4 patients had a well-differentiated tumor (G1). Tracheotomy tube removal, oral feeding, and voice analysis have been evaluated and reported in the study. Mean follow-up was 16 months. Conclusions: Horizontal glottectomy might be a worthwhile treatment option in selected patients nowadays. In older patients with anterior commissure involvement, this procedure guarantees adequate functional and good oncological results. This study may possibly help surgeons dealing with glottic cancer involving the anterior commissure because we believe that some patients could benefit from HG, even in this radiotherapy and transoral laser surgery "era."
