AbstractThe aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of surgical salvage of local and nodal recurrence of carcinoma of the oral tongue after radiotherapy failure. Of the 47 patients in this retrospective review (between 1980 and 1992), there were 25 with local recurrence alone, 11 with locoregional recurrence, and 11 with nodal recurrence alone. There was no operative mortality, and 17% of patients had one or more surgical complications, including wound infection, flap necrosis, anastomotic leakage, and chest infection. Twenty-nine (62%) patients developed recurrences in the head and neck region after the salvage operation, and 9 of them had second surgical salvage operations. At the last follow-up, 53% of patients had died of carcinoma of the tongue and the overall 5-year actuarial survival rate was 43%. The 5-year actuarial survival rates were 39% for local recurrence alone, 27% for locoregional recurrence, and 68% for nodal recurrence alone. Surgical salvage had satisfactory results for patients with oral tongue carcinoma after radiotherapy failure. Close follow-up and early surgical intervention are essential for patients primarily treated with radiotherapy.
