Results: the 3 years survival rate after conventional cordectomy among 31 patients was 80% and local recurrence rate 9,6%. In 16 patients after laser cordectomy the survival rate was 81% and local recurrence rate 6,5%. No significant difference was found in comparison those results in both groups using c2 . Discussion: The high value of both surgical procedures in early laryngeal cancers was emphasized and the laser procedure advantages were indicated
