Disease relevance of Glossectomy


High impact information on Glossectomy


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Glossectomy

  • We describe our experience with midline glossectomy with epiglottidectomy in 12 patients with a mean age of 48.8 +/- 14.2 years and body mass index of 36.0 +/- 8.8 kg/m2 [1].
  • Midline glossectomy as the sole procedure was performed on 11 patients who had failed uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) and who were felt to have significant hypopharyngeal collapse on physical examination and Müller's maneuver [8].
  • If the obstructive part is in the root of the tongue, forward transfer of the tongue, lingual tonsillectomy and laser midline glossectomy are applied [9].
