The surgeries performed included 160 total laryngectomies, 47 partial (39 supracricoid, 4 supraglottic and 4 vertical) laryngectomies and 18 transoral endoscopic laser surgery selected according to the site and stage of the primary tumor. For lymph node control: 84 selective neck dissection, 8 radical or modified radical neck dissection and 13 combined.
