ABSTRACTCancer of the larynx is a relatively rare neoplasia in Mexico as well as in the rest of the world; however, evolution of treatment in recent years showed important results in terms of survival and local control. Supracricoid partial laryngectomy with cricohyoidoepiglottopexy is a surgical technique that permits similar oncologic results to other conservatives techniques for glottic carcinoma, with excellent functional results. The objective of the present work was to show the critical points of the technique based on the description of Laccourreye, emphasizing the anatomical aspect of resection and reconstruction to avoid complications and achieve best results.
