Objectives: To investigate oncological and functional results of enoral laser microsurgery in treatment of cancer of the oral cavity. Methods: A retrospective chart analysis was carried out. 232 patients with cancer of the oral cavity were treated by enoral laser microsurgery +/- selective neck dissection +/- postoperative radio(chemo-)therapy. Results: 72 % (n=168) received a uni- or bilateral selective or modified radical neck dissection, 32 % (n=75) received an adjuvant radio(chemo)therapy. The median follow-up period was 71.89 months. The 5-year overall survival was 54.6 %, recurrence-free survival was 60.2 % and disease specific survival was 70.3 %. Nasogastric feeding tubes were needed in 96 patients, only 2 patients required a temporary gastrostomy tube. Conclusions: Enoral laser microsurgery is an efficient therapeutic option in the treatment of oral cavity cancer. Oncological and functional results are comparable to any other treatment regimen, while morbidity and complications tend to be lower. Head Neck, 2013.
