This study was to present long-term oncological results, as well as the variables, that can increase nodal metastasis and reduce survival in patients diagnosed in the early and late stages of laryngeal cancer.A total of 85 patients were included in the study. These patients were grouped as supracricoid partial laryngectomy (PL), supraglottic horizontal PL, and vertical frontolateral PL. Furthermore, at least 3 years of the long-term outcomes of the patients in these 3 groups were compared.Twenty-two of the patients (26%) had nodal metastasis, 16 (72%) of these patients were in Group I (P = 0.017); 14 patients (51%) had preepiglottic space (P = 0.075); 12 patients (50%) had paraglottic space involvement (P = 0.002); 9 (45%) patients with nodal metastasis had a depth of invasion more than 20 mm (P < 0.001). Out of the 16 patients who had positive intraoperative surgery margins, 5 (18%) of them had nodal metastasis (P = 0.589) and 14 (16%) patients were positive for perineural invasion, 3 (19%) of these patients had lymph node involvement (P = 0.074). One (5%) patient died with nodal metastasis. Median survival rate of all the patients was 44 ± 0.836 (42.36–45.63) months and the overall survival rate was 92.9%.Paraglottic space involvement and tumor invasion depth were statistically effective on increased nodal metastasis. However, we suggest that depth of invasion may not be effective alone as a prognostic factor. In contrast to the known effect on overall survival was less lymph node.
