Abstract

Summary: Reconstruction following total laryngopharyngectomy with total glossectomy (TLPTG) is challenging. To reconstruct this extended range of mucosal defect, it is necessary to overcome the remarkable discrepancy of apertures of oral and esophageal sides. We report a case of reconstruction surgery for total laryngopharyngectomy with total glossectomy with a funnel-shaped rectus abdominis musclocutaneous flap. The patient recovered without major complications and could keep a relatively good swallowing function. We believe this simple method should contribute to cases with complicated ablation.
