Prospective Instrumental Evaluation of Swallowing, Tongue Function and QOL Measures following Transoral Robotic Surgery (TORS) Alone Without Adjuvant Therapy


Transoral robotic surgery (TORS) has been utilized to deintensify treatment. Thus far, no studies have measured swallow safety and efficiency, or assessed the functional impact of TORS alone. This study concludes that careful identification of patients can result in excellent outcomes following TORS.
