[Evaluation of 6 years of CO2 laser microsurgery in laryngology].Ann Otolaryngol Chir Cervicofac. 1984; 101(5):411-4.AO
Laryngeal microsurgery has been performed using a CO2 laser since 1978. It is essential to conduct a strict phoniatric pre-operative examination and to ensure correct anesthesia. Results after 735 operations underline the advantages of this technique for the treatment of benign laryngeal lesions (diffuse papillomatosis, sessile polyps, granuloma), in phonosurgery (nodules, bundle edema, corditis) and in the repermeabilization of the laryngeal network (paralysis, stenosis, laryngeal edema).
