Summary : This is a retrospective study of 80 patients who have had a horizontal subglottic laryngectomy. The functional results were assessed by means of clinical findings at follow-up and a questionnaire. The mean time to decannulation was 32 days, and to removal of the nasogastric tube 25 days. 45 % of patients had no fistula. Of the remaining 55 %, there was a false passage for fluids in 90 %. These fistulae remained patent for an average of 12 weeks. At one year and beyond, 40 % of patients were on a normal diet, 33 % were on ground food, 10 % on a soft paste fiet, 6 % on a semi-liquid diet, and 10 % were fed by tube. The factors militating towards poor function are age above 65 years, and provious radiotherapy.
