Surface Electromyography-Based Recognition, Synthesis, and Perception of Prosodic Subvocal Speech
Conclusion This proof-of-concept study establishes the feasibility of using subvocal sEMG-based alternative communication not only for lexical recognition but also for prosodic communication in healthy individuals, as well as those living with vocal impairments and residual articulatory function.

Mapping the Risk Factors of Pharyngocutaneous Fistula After Salvage Laryngectomies
AbstractTo evaluate the postoperative surgical wound infection prevalence rates of patients undergoing SL, identify the causative organism and determine predisposing factors leading to infection. A retrospective study of all consecutive patients who underwent salvage total laryngectomy at our unit between 2015 and 2020 was performed. The following parameters were also analyzed: age, smoking history, pre and postoperative albumin level, history of radio and chemo-radiotherapy, reconstruction with pectoralis flap, intraoperative tracheoesophageal puncture, and tumor stage. A total of 12 of the 21 patients (57%) experienced a...

Asymptomatic swallowing disorders may be present  in individuals with laryngeal and hypopharyngeal cancer treated with chemo-radiotherapy
ConclusionSwallowing disorders are common after chemo-radiotherapy, even in patients who do not clinically manifest these disorders, contributing to a decrease in patients' quality of life. FEES and V –VST are useful procedures to detect asymptomatic swallowing disorders. (Source: European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology)

Quality of Life After Total Laryngectomy: A Retrospective Study
AbstractQuality of life is severely affected in laryngeal cancer patients, who have undergone total laryngectomy, particularly with regard to cancer diagnosis and the consequences of total laryngectomy. The aim of the present study is to record and evaluate the problems related with the quality of life in laryngectomized patients. A further goal is to investigate, whether a correlation exists between demographics and clinical characteristics of the patients. Fifty male patients, who underwent total laryngectomy, participated in the study. Two questionnaires were used to test various quality of life parameters, the EORTC QL...

Cancers, Vol. 13, Pages 1895: Current Intraoperative Imaging Techniques to Improve Surgical Resection of Laryngeal Cancer: A Systematic Review
illing Stijn Keereweer Laryngeal cancer is a prevalent head and neck malignancy, with poor prognosis and low survival rates for patients with advanced disease. Treatment consists of unimodal therapy through surgery or radiotherapy in early staged tumors, while advanced stage tumors are generally treated with multimodal chemoradiotherapy or (total) laryngectomy followed by radiotherapy. Still, the recurrence rate for advanced laryngeal cancer is between 25 and 50%. In order to improve surgical resection of laryngeal cancer and reduce local recurrence rates, various intraoperative optical imaging techniques have been i...

Cancers, Vol. 13, Pages 1601: Could Primary Chemoradiotherapy in T2 Glottic Cancers Yield Results Comparable to Primary Radiotherapy in T1? Considerations from 531 German Early Stage Patients
ert Ramroth T1 glottic cancer is a highly treatable disease with local control (LC) rates over 90% by either primary radiotherapy (pRT) or transoral laser microsurgery (TLM). LC of T2 glottic cancers is 15 percent points poorer on average. However, salvage after pRT entails more than 50% total laryngectomy. Therefore, there is a need for enhanced LC. Altered fractionation regimens improved LC in T1 but not in T2. For this reason, for T2, alternative strategies must be considered. In a large observational cohort study including 531 early-stage laryngeal cancers, a small number of patients were treated with primary chemo...

Primary Sarcomas of the Larynx: A Clinicopathologic Study of 27 Cases
AbstractPrimary sarcomas of the larynx are rare and are associated with diagnostic and treatment challenges. Studies of these tumors are limited, and most examples have been reported as small series. To further increase our understanding of laryngeal sarcomas, we reviewed our experience of an adult cohort. A retrospective search for laryngeal sarcomas from our pathology archives and consultation files of one of the authors was performed. We studied 27 primary laryngeal sarcomas that included 25 males, and 2 females, with a mean age of 60  years (range 33–85). The cases included conventional chondrosarcoma (16), ...

Role of Neck Dissection in Organ-Preservation for Glottic Squamous Cell Carcinoma
The objective is to evaluate the results of bilateral elective neck dissection in patients with glottic cancer who underwent supracricoid partial laryngectomy (SCPL) with cricohyoidoepiglotto pexy (CHEP). Thirty-five patients diagnosed with ≥ T2 N0 laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) in a single-center retrospective study. Right-sided neck dissections yielded 900 lymph nodes, none of which were positive for metastatic disease. Left-sided neck dissections yielded 949 lymph node s, one of which was positive for malignancy. Prelaryngeal (Delphian) neck dissection was performed in all patients. Out of 50&...
