Reevaluation of gastroesophageal reflux disease as a risk factor for laryngeal cancer.
Francis DO, Maynard C, Weymuller EA, Reiber G, Merati AL, Yueh B. Reevaluation of gastroesophageal reflux disease as a risk factor for laryngeal cancer. The Laryngoscope. 2011 Jan 1; 121(1):102-5.
In this population, there was no increased risk of laryngeal cancer among patients with GERD. However, in subsite analysis, a possible relationship between GERD and glottic cancer was observed. Reverse causality must be considered in future studies assessing the relationship between reflux and laryngeal cancer to limit misclassification bias.
