From 1970 through 1982, 106 patients with carcinoma of the tonsillar region were treated by trans-mandibular bucco-pharyngectomy (composite resection) in the ENT department of Prof. Piquet at Lille University. After a brief reminder of the surgical process, the authors study the group of the operated patients (localization and classification of the UICC 1979), present the oncological results (crude 3-year survival of 58% and 5 years as 35%) and analyse them. According to several other series, they specify their therapeutic attitudes.
