Abstract

Background/Aims: When considering the quality of life of patients who undergo total laryngectomy, constipation problems are often overlooked. This study aims to determine whether surgical or concurrent chemoradiotherapy treatments matter in the development of functional constipation in patients with advanced-stage laryngeal cancer.
