A single-arm is being conducted at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, Columbus, to assess transoral robotic surgery (TORS) for oral and laryngopharyngeal benign and malignant lesions using the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System.
The study started in 2007, and the estimated completion date is December 2020. Investigators hope to enroll 360 adults.
Patients are scheduled for regular postop visits to assess quality of life and other matters. Those unable to return to Ohio State University are contacted by phone or provided with the questionnaire by mail.
