Endoscopic laser CO2 microsurgery was the primary and solitary management for curative resection of the glottic cancer. All operations were performed under general anesthesia with orotracheal.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol. Abdurehim Y, Hua Z, Yasin Y, Xukurhan A, Imam I, Yuqin F. Transoral laser surgery versus radiotherapy: Systematic review and meta-analysis for treatment options of T1a glottic cancer. Endoscopic excision of early glottic cancer has been demonstrated to have a variety of advantages over other treatment modalities. The technique is relatively easy and highly successful in properly selected cases. The cancer margin is microscopically controlled so that a minimal amount of normal unin-volved tissue is disrupted.

ISBN , Glottic cancer is a malignancy of the larynx that involves the true vocal cords and anterior and posterior commissures. Because of its anatomical location, it can have profound effects on the basic vital functions including, breathing, swallowing, voice, and, ultimately, mortality. Voice quality after endoscopic laser surgery and radiotherapy for early glottic cancer: objective measurements emphasizing the Voice Handicap Index. Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol , . Glottic stenosis describes a fixed narrowing of the upper airway at the level of the glottis. The glottis is the portion of the larynx containing the vocal cords and the glottic opening. Anatomically, the glottis is the part of the larynx extending from the junction between the true and false vocal cords at the apex of the laryngeal ventricle to a line one centimeter below.
We present the results of a retrospective study based on a cohort of patients who underwent endoscopic CO 2 laser excision for previously untreated early glottic cancer (21 Tis, 96 T1, and 23 T2). This study used univariate analysis to review the impact on disease-free survival of 15 factors related to the host, the tumor, and the treatment. When glottic cancer recurs locally (in the area of the initial cancer) after radiation therapy, treatment of the recurrence often involves surgery. Endoscopic laser surgery is a minimally invasive technique in which a scope is passed through the mouth and into the throat, and a laser is used to remove the cancer. Laryngeal carcinomas in the early stages of evolution can be treated by different therapies. In this paper we present our personal experience with T1 and small T2 laryngeal glottic cancer treated by conventional surgery and by endoscopic laser surgery. In the period –, we saw patients affected by T1 and limited T2 glottic tumours. In particular, we treated case of T1a tumour. Endoscopic resection. Endoscopic resection can be used in early-stage laryngeal cancer. During the procedure, a surgeon uses a special microscope to get a magnified view of the larynx. This allows them to remove the cancer either with a laser or small surgical instruments.
