Investigate the clinical and oncological results of early-stage glottic laryngeal carcinoma patients performed by a single surgeon.
This study was carried out at a tertiary academic center. A total of 101 patients were included (92 males [91.1%], 9 females [8.9%]). Mean age was 62.98 ± 10.2 years (range 33-87). Recurrence, disease-free survival, overall survival, laryngeal preservation rates were analyzed.
Tumor stage was Tis (carcinoma in situ) in 11 patients (10.9%), T1a in 66 patients (65.3%), T1b in 12 patients (11.9%), and T2 in 12 patients (11.9%). Postoperative pathology was squamous cell carcinoma in 69 patients (68.3%), carcinoma in situ in 26 patients (25.7%), and high-grade dysplasia in 6 patients (5.9%). Five patients (5.0%) underwent type 1, 7 (6.9%) type 2, 45 (44.6%) type 3, 24 (23.8%) type 4, 6 (5.9%) type 5a, 8 (7.9%) type 5c, 4 (4.0%) type 5d, and 2 (2.0%) type 6 cordectomy. Median follow-up time was 30 months (range 14-66). There were 5 recurrences (5.0%). Three-year disease-free survival was 94.4%. Three-year disease-free survival for stage I and II patients was 94.9 and 91.7%, respectively. Overall survival was 93.8%. Only 1 patient died related to cardiovascular disease. Disease-specific survival was 100%.
In conclusion, this is a large case series with good oncological outcomes presented with the perspective of a single surgeon. The data of the study is in accordance with the previous reports.
