Endoscopic CO2 laser surgery alone was proved to give good oncological results and is a desirable alternative to radio-therapy or partial laryngectomy for patients with early T2 glottic carcinoma [1]. However, Diode laser was not investigated in such cases. Moreover, most previous studies were retrospective [5-7]. In reviewing the literature, high recurrence rate was reported after laser surgery for T2 tumors. It was obvious that the main cause was incomplete removal of the tumor. Piece-meal technique was more frequently used with low local control with laser (68.5% [5], 76.4% [6], 84% [7]) and high residual (31.5% [5], 23.6% [6], 16% [7]). Vocal muscle infiltration and involvement of the paraglottic space and subglottic area have a significant impact on disease-free survival after laser surgery [7].
