Records of 108 patients with oral and oral pharyngeal cancer treated from 1955 to 1967 were reviewed. All patients were treated primarily with composite resection or planned low-dose irradiation followed by composite resection. An attempt was made to determine the effect of preoperative irradiation on three-year absolute survival, neck recurrence, local recurrence, and complications.
