As a result of increased life expectancy, the proportion of elderly patients with head and neck cancer is constantly rising. Transoral robotic surgery has been developed over the last ten years as a minimal invasive surgical procedure. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the place of this technique for elderly patients. Study data related to elderly (age over 75 years) patients who underwent TORS between March 2008 and March 2018 were analyzed. 28 elderly patients were included; the different locations were 18 laryngeal (10 glottic and 8 supraglottic), 3 hypopharyngeal, 2 oral cavities and 5 oropharyngeal carcinoma respectively.
