Abstract

Advanced pharyngolaryngeal tumors represent a challenge when taking into discussion the therapeutical aspects. In order to achieve good functional and at least minimal aesthetic outcome, different types of reconstructive solutions were taken into consideration over time.Depending on the features of the defect that needs to be covered after resecting the tumor with safety margins the surgeon can choose the type of flap that is proper to be used.This paper aims to review some of the reconstructive solutions a surgeon can use to reconstruct the defect in advanced pharyngolaryngeal tumours. This type of surgery transforms inoperable cases into patients that could be surgically approached with good functional outcomes. However, the recovery of the patients up to disease free status is difficult and performing this type of intervention requires experience and hospital equipped with “state of the art” standars of care
