Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the oncological and functional results of patients affected by laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and surgically treated by supracricoid partial laryngectomy (SCPL) at the ENT Department of the University Hospital of Ferrara. Methods: In this retrospective study a total of 155 patients (149 males/96.1% and 6 females/3.9%), have been included. All patients were treated between January 1st 1998 and December 31<sup>st</sup> 2010, by SCPL, including 126 cricohyoidopexies (CHP) and 29 cricohyoidoepiglottopexies (CHEP). Results: The overall survival (OS) at 3 and 5 years was 88.77 and 83.24%, respectively and the disease-free survival (DFS) at 3 and 5 years was 84.4 and 81.55%, respectively. The recurrence rate was 17.5%, with local recurrences in 12.1% of the cases, regional in 4.7% and distant metastasis in 0.7% of the cases. Synchronous second primary tumors were 0.7% and metachronous second primary cancers (MSPCs) 5.4%. Removal of nasogastric feeding tube (NGT) or percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) was performed in 98.7% of the patients and lasted 22 days on average after SCPL (range 9-60), while decannulation was performed in all of patients at the 27<sup>th</sup> day on average after surgery. Conclusions: Oncological outcomes of this series are consistent with those of the literature, showing that SCPL is an effective and safe procedure in terms of survival rate and disease control. Functional outcomes confirmed that SCPL allows a good organ preservation and recovery of laryngeal functions.
