Abstract

In adult microlaryngeal surgery appropriate application of the laser can result in improved therapeutic outcomes. Used injudiciously, however, the laser will impart heat energy which can irreversibly alter postoperative laryngeal vibratory characteristics. This article discusses the equipment, safety precautions, and clinical applications of lasers in adult laryngeal surgery because the laser remains a valuable tool for the treatment of specific laryngeal diseases.
