Extended supracricoid partial laryngectomy with tracheocricohyoidoepiglottopexy (TCHEP) was studied as an alternative to total laryngectomy in 16 patients with glottic carcinoma presenting a 10-15 mm of anterior subglottic extent. The technique of the procedure is described. Results were analyzed for tumor free margins, tracheostomy decannulation, oral alimentation, phonation and disease free interval. The 3-year survival and local control rate were 68% and 86.7% respectively. Our preliminary data suggest that the TCHEP procedure is a viable alternative to total laryngectomy for patients presenting with varying degrees of carcinoma extension below the free edge of the true vocal cords.
