Abstract
This course will present the audience with a unique and critical examination of modern management of laryngeal cancer with a historical perspective, thorough review of the literature, the pitfalls and authors’ experience of treating this disease over 30 years at major institutions. Laryngeal cancer is the only head and neck cancer that has a decrease in survival. In addition, surgical techniques both modern and traditional will be described including partial laryngectomies which should have a role today for radiation failures mainly, and robotic as well as endoscopic laser partial laryngectomies and their impact on voice and swallowing. Learning objectives of the study are to recognize the various treatment options for laryngeal cancer through multi-disciplinary care: Radiation, Chemotherapy and surgery (total and partial laryngectomies) including newer endoscopic techniques. Analyze critically the literature, become familiar with key studies and how laryngeal cancer philosophy evolved over the past two decades and apply that knowledge to make decisions regarding treatment options. Set a treatment strategy for patients, challenge some of the reigning philosophies in treating advanced laryngeal cancers think critically with implications not only for survival but also quality of life.
