Transoral CO2 Laser Microsurgery Outcomes for Early Glottic Carcinomas T1-T2

Abstract: Introduction  Transoral laser microsurgery (TLM) has won territory in larynx oncology, establishing itself as an effective option in treatment of glottic, supraglottic, and hypopharynx tumors. Its advantages include limited resections, a reduction in number of tracheostomies, and the use of nasogastric tubes. Moreover, its oncological benefits are similar to those from open surgery in patients with early or advanced stages, when correctly selected.Objective  The objective of this study is to review oncologic o… Show more

“…In some studies, outcomes are outside the ranges shown above, in these cases mostly by a few percentage points. Larger variances are mainly seen in studies with <20 patients within a T categories, in which one single aberrant case will shift outcome significantly [ 39 41 ]. Aside from random variations due to small numbers, positive deviances may also indicate selection bias with the most favorable lesions being chosen for TLM whereas the larger studies included in the table above tend to consist of (near) consecutive patients.…”
