Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The study goal was to present the technique and results of office-based biopsy of advanced carcinoma in the hypopharynx under video laryngeal telescopic guidance.
STUDY DESIGN AND SET: From 2003 to 2007, a total of 13 patients with clinical suspicion of advanced carcinoma in the hypopharynx were studied at the ENT Department of Taipei Medical University Hospital. RESULT: All but one patient were biopsied smoothly with adequate amount of specimens for definite pathologic diagnosis at the time of initial clinical examination.
CONCLUSION: In select patients, biopsy of advanced hypopharyneal carcinoma under video laryngeal telescopic guidance can be performed smoothly in an office-based setting. The technique has also proven to be efficient, well tolerated, and with low morbidity.
SIGNIFICANCE: Biopsy of advanced hypopharyneal carcinoma with this technique can reduce the use of direct laryngoscope under general anesthesia, which obviates surgery-related morbidity. This technique is both clinically and financially effective.
