Abstract: The general aim of this thesis is to determine and compare disease and voice outcome for T1 glottic carcinoma treated with radiotherapy or laser surgery. The findings show similar oncological and functional results for radiotherapy and laser surgery in “superficial midcord T1a glottic carcinoma”. This outcome supports the Dutch national guideline “Treatment of Laryngeal Carcinoma” which was published during the life-time of this thesis. In this guideline laser surgery is labeled treatment of choice in these lesions because of the shorter treatment duration, lower costs and the possibility for repeated treatments and/or additional radiotherapy. For larger T1 lesions, our literature review concludes that more comparative data, especially on functional results, are needed before definite conclusions can be drawn as to the role of laser surgery in these lesions. These studies are now being perform ed in a collaboration between the Leiden University Medical Center and the Eramus Medical Center, Rotterdam.
