Özet

Aim: Larynx cancers are among the smoking-related cancers frequently encountered at the head and neck area. Partial surgeries have been preferred in the early-stage larynx cancers during the recent years. Even though partial surgeries are advantageous in terms of protection of the breathing, swallowing, and voice functions, studies regarding the change in the postoperative respiratory functions are not sufficient. Our objective in this study is the scrutiny of the change in the respiratory functions subsequent to various partial surgeries.
