Abstract

A series of 79 patients with locally inoperable squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck region were treated from June 1979 to December 1982. The status of inoperability was based on a surgical evaluation indicating that the tumor and/or regional nodes could not be totally resected with curative intent. The aim of this study was to compare an aggressive regimen against a mild one.
