Objective: This study is to estimate the survival results, the morbidity and the functional consequences of the supracricoid laryngectomy with cricohyoïdopexy (SL-CHP). Patients and methods: Between 1990 and 2001, 23 patients had a SL-CHP in Centre Antoine Lacassagne of Nice. The average age was of 59 years. Patients were classified as follow: 1 T1, 11 T2, 10 T3 and 1 T4 (invasion of the thyroid cartilage without involving of anterior soft tissues). 17 patients were N0 (73.9%). A bilateral radical neck dissection was performed in 10 cases, a radical neck dissection was associated to a functional neck dissection (1 case) and a homolateral functional neck dissection (10 cases). Results: The limits were insufficient for a patient. Six patients were N+ (28.5%) of which 4 N+R+. The average delay was 21 days and 32.7 days to remove respectively the tracheotomy and the nasogastric tube. A functional total laryngectomy was done in two cases. We noted two cases of local recurrence. Survivals according to the method of Kaplan-Meier are 81% in 3 years and 75% in 5 years. Conclusion: The SL-CHP represents an alternative to the total laryngectomy for the supraglottic and transglottic carcinomas.
