We have successfully treated two males and one female with lesions of the 1st, 2nd and 4th metacarpal bones using a(More)
Early glottic carcinomas (T1 and T2) constitute only 2% of all laryngeal cancers in our data. Seventy patients were seen between 1985 and 1992. All patients were treated by cobalt-60 small field radiotherapy using a beam directed shell. The total dose delivered was 60-65 Gy in 31 patients and 66-70 Gy in 39 patients. The follow-up period ranged from 5 to(More)
