Abstract: 

Cartilaginous tumors comprise 1% of all laryngeal masses. Since they grow slowly and metastasis is rare, long term survival is expected in cases of chondroma and chondrosarcoma. Thus, based on these facts and the fact that total salvage surgery after recurrence of previous tumor does not influence treatment outcomes, "Quality of Life" must be taken into great consideration. Based on 3 cases of limited condrosarcoma that we have successfully operated on using submucosal delivery through a parapharyngeal approach, after several years of recurrence free follow ups, authors determine this technique as an efficient method of approach to these tumors. Since this technique takes less time and there is no need for glottic incision and the patient is discharged in 2 days without insertion of endolaryngeal stent, we believe this method is superior to laryngofissure or total laryngectomy.
