A 63-year-old male was admitted to the otolaryngology department due to a tumor of the right vocal fold. Stroboscopic examination showed a tumor infiltrating the upper and medial surfaces of the right vocal fold, the tumor did not reach the anterior commissure or the subglottic region. The mobility of the right vocal fold was preserved, only limited phonation vibrations were found. Based on stroboscopy and NBI, a decision was made to completely remove the lesion without prior biopsy. Type II cordectomy was performed using a CO2 laser. In order to improve visualization of the surface of the vocal fold, the vestibular fold was partially removed in the first stage of the operation. The epithelium and subepithelial layer were removed, preserving the remaining anatomical structures of the vocal fold.
The specimen was sent for histopathological examination.
