Indications for Surgery or Radiotherapy for Glottic Cancer and Their Oncological Results

  • J.-J. Piquet


Dealing with the indications for surgery or radiotherapy for laryngeal cancer, two propositions can be formulated with regard to oncological and functional results:
  1. 1.

    Post-operative radiotherapy is not indicated after a partial vertical laryngectomy, because the surgical resection must be extensive enough to cure the carcinoma.

  2. 2.

    If the tumor is too large to allow a partial vertical laryngectomy, pre-operative radiotherapy does not change the surgical indication.
