OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: To study and compare the outcome of trans-oral CO2 laser microsurgery for early glottic squamous cell cancer with and without the involvement of anterior commissure (AC). STUDY DESIGN: This is a retrospective analysis of 296 cases of early glottic squamous cancer treated by trans-oral CO2 laser microsurgery. METHODS: The patients were divided into two groups depending on whether AC was involved or not. The impact of AC involvement on rates of local recurrence, laryngeal preservation, overall survival, and disease-specific survival was compared in both the groups...

BACKGROUND: Early glottic carcinoma can be managed by radiotherapy and transoral laser microsurgery with similar control and survival rates. The functional and quality of life outcomes of these interventions are therefore important to guide management. OBJECTIVE OF REVIEW: To compare the different treatment modalities for early glottic carcinoma with respect to quality of life, post-treatment voice character and swallowing outcomes. TYPE OF REVIEW: A systematic review of the literature with defined search strategy...

The use of trans-oral laser techniques for the resection of head and neck carcinomas has increased exponentially over the last four decades. Inadvertent laser damage to the patient or operating theatre staff is an acknowledged risk. However, no data exist to verify the safety margin of commonly employed precautions. The aims of this study was to assess the safety margins of protective strategies commonly adopted when using CO(2) lasers to resect tumours of the head and neck. A Sigmacon Acupulse Lumenis CO(2) laser was evaluated...
