Various surgical procedures have been designed for glottic reconstruction following vertical partial laryngectomy. Many of these techniques require flaps or even a second stage to adequately compensate for the loss of lining or bulk that accompanies extended laryngeal resection. Thyroid perichondrium and investing cervical fascia were used in 20 cases of glottic reconstruction. Laryngeal reconstruction following vertical partial laryngectomy using readily available local tissue allows for the wide resection of tumor as well as for the preservation of laryngeal structure and function.
