Office-based 532-Nanometer pulsed potassium-titanyl-phosphate laser for marsupialization of laryngeal and vallecular mucoceles.Laryngoscope. 2017 05; 127(5):1116-1118.L
Many laryngopharyngeal disorders are effectively managed in the office. Herein, an in-office method utilizing the 532-nm potassium-titanyl-phosphate (KTP) laser for the treatment of benign laryngeal and vallecular mucoceles is described.
Retrospective case review.
A review was performed of patients who had their vallecular or laryngeal mucoceles marsupialized in the office using KTP laser.
Outcomes included long-term follow-up laryngoscopy for evidence of recurrence, significant intraprocedural complications, tolerance of the procedure, final pathology of the specimen, and resolution of symptoms.
In-office KTP marsupialization of laryngeal and vallecular mucoceles is effective and well tolerated, with no episodes of recurrence to date.
