A satisfactory control of laryngeal disease and preservation of a normal voice ranging from 100% for T1 N0 lesions, 61.1 % for T2 N0 to 50% for T3N0. But 47.1% of cases with node metastasis on admission had poor results to irradiation suggesting of necessicity of combined treatment. 5 year recurrence - free survivals was 43.3% in all cases with supraglottic carcinoma treated by irradiation alone, although it was 87'5% in T - 1 and 51.8% in T - 2.
