Optical coherence tomography-enhanced microlaryngoscopy
: preliminary report of a noncontact optical coherence tomography system integrated with a surgical microscope.
Carbon dioxide laser surgery, microlaryngoscopy
, and dissection of the vocal cords were performed in some cases.
The first laser microlaryngoscopy
procedure was described in 1971.
was carried out under general anaesthesia when endoscopic D/L was difficult, did not reveal any lesion and the problem persisted for more than 04weeksor when removal of lesion was undertaken.
Surgical removal is reserved primarily for cases refractory to medical treatment or when the diagnosis is in doubt, and "bloodless" in-office techniques such as KTP laser treatment can offer increased accessibility, decreased morbidity, and lower recurrence rates than traditional cold steel microlaryngoscopy
techniques, but at the expense of complete histologic evaluation.
Its diagnostic accuracy equals that of microlaryngoscopy
demonstrated a large sessile subglottic mass arising from the posterior commissure (Figure 1).
with debulking of the mass by C[O.sub.2] laser was performed.
The patient underwent an emergency microlaryngoscopy
under general anaesthetic for debridement of the vocal cord polyps in order to establish a definitive airway.
A suspension microlaryngoscopy
showed a lesion of the left false vocal cord; a biopsy was performed.
