Voice quality after laser surgery versus single vocal cord irradiation
This proposal seeks to compare single vocal cord irradiation (SVCI) to transoral CO2-laser microsurgical cordectomy (TLM) on patient-reported voice quality in a prospective randomized multi-center open-label comparative phase III study. This approach is promising to spare voice quality and thus improve quality of life.
