Objectives: Despite ongoing research and previous successful reports, sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) has not gained widespread use in the management of the neck in laryngeal carcinoma. The aim was to assess the effectiveness of the SLNB technique in laryngeal carcinoma with the novel percutaneous pre-epiglottic radiotracer injection technique.
