Abstract

The results of treatment for recurrent cancer at the tracheal stoma have been poor. From 1971 to 1976, elective postoperative irradiation of the neck was given to 26 high-risk patients with carcinoma of the larynx and hypopharynx. None of the 22 patients whose stomas were irradiated developed stomal or peristomal recurrence, while 2 of the 4 patients whose stomas were shielded had stomal recurrence. Elective irradiation of the tracheal stoma was effective in preventing stomal recurrence; the authors recommend inclusion of the stomal area in preoperative or postoperative irradiation to the lower cervical region for high-risk patients.
