This study describes the oncological and functional results of horizontal glottectomy performed in a series of 37 similar patients with T1b glottic cancers. The 5-year overall and disease-free survival rates were, respectively, 85.4% and 91.0%. Decannulation was always possible within a mean period of 16.2 days, and no patient developed laryngeal stenosis. A bypass naso-gastric tube was removed a mean 4.9 days after surgery, and adequate swallowing was soon obtained. The mean duration of post-operative hospitalization was 16 days and no major post-operative complications were observed. Satisfactory vocal function was obtained in all cases. On the basis of these results, horizontal glottectomy was found to be a reliable and safe procedure for the management of T1b glottic cancer.
