Examples

  • In early and limited forms of intrinsic cancer laryngo-fissure (thyreotomy) gives good results; in more advanced cases the entire larynx must be removed -- _complete laryngectomy_ -- and at the same time, or after an interval, the associated lymph glands are removed from the anterior triangle of the neck on both sides.
