Abstract

The role of the surgical method in the complex treatment of laryngeal cancer. As a result of studying the dynamics of the incidence of laryngeal cancer in the Republic of Moldova, in the period from 1980 to 2020. It was found that annually, a malignant tumor of the larynx, on average, about 120 patients fall ill. Over the course of 40 years, 874 patients were identified, of which more than 80% were admitted for treatment at stages 3-4 of the disease. This article studied the results of surgical treatment of 258 patients with locally advanced laryngeal cancer. Based on the characteristics of the spread of laryngeal cancer to neighboring organs and tissues, they gave us the basis to distinguish five main types of surgical intervention: upper, lower, anterior, posterior and lateral. The justification of these operations is proved by the patient’s life expectancy, which is 53.6%
