Abstract

Objective: To determine the frequency of stomal recurrence in patients following total laryngectomy in our center and to compare the frequency of previously reported risk factors such as preoperative tracheostomy, subglottic invasion and the level of lymph node metastases, with the rest of the world. Methods: Clinical records of patients with carcinoma of the larynx who presented to Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKMMC) Otorhinolaryngology and Oncology clinics between January 1998 and December 2007 were reviewed. Results: A total of all 18 male patients who underwent total laryngectomy for carcinoma of the larynx within this 10 year period. The youngest patient was 49 years old and the eldest was 79 years old with mean age of 63±8 years. Twelve of them had a tracheostomy prior to surgery. Median duration from tracheostomy to definitive surgery was 28.5 days. Only 1 patient developed stomal recurrence. Conclusion: The duration from tracheostomy and total laryngectomy was longer than what is accomplished in the developed countries but the frequency of stomal recurrence was still comparable to the rest of the world. The frequency of other previously reported risk factors namely subglottic invasion and lymph nodes metastases were comparably low.
