BACKGROUND Radiotherapy (RT) has a remarkable success rate in the treatment of patients with glottic carcinoma. The objectives of the current study were to assess the results in a group of consecutive patients with comparable characteristics who were treated with RT (6-megavolt photon linear accelerator) and to determine the prognostic factors that may influence local control in patients with early-stage glottic carcinoma. The impact on local control of tobacco smoking and second primary… CONTINUE READING
