In this book, the authors present current research in the study of surgical procedures, complications and disorders of the larynx. Topics discussed include the molecular biology of laryngeal cancer; laryngeal reconstruction and voice rehabilitation; open supragottic horizontal laryngectomy; speech rehabilitation for patients who suffer larynx and voice box deficiencies; the lower esophageal sphincter and its relationship with the larynx; and the peri- and post-operative complications of endoscopic laser microsurgery of malignant tumors of the larynx.
