is done above the hyoid bone and inferior to hypoglossal nerve and the mass is visualized through the pharyngotomy
opening and dissection is carried out.
Large tumors can be excised through external approaches, like Laryngofissure, Lateral pharyngotomy
and sub-hyoidpharyngology whereas small tumors are excised endoscopically.
Obviously, the endoscopic approaches for the repair of type 1 and 2 clefts have many advantages over the open approaches, including avoidance of a skin incision, laryngofissure, and pharyngotomy
For larger tumors, an external approach, such as a lateral or subhyoid pharyngotomy
, may be required.
The lesion was excised entirely via a lateral pharyngotomy
A complete removal of the mass was achieved via a transcervical approach with a lateral pharyngotomy
6) The preferred surgical approaches for removal of laryngeal neurilemmomas are the transhyoid approach, the laryngofissure approach, and the lateral pharyngotomy
or midline thyrotomy) to achieve complete tumor removal while preserving laryngeal function and the overlying mucosa.
Surgical options include transoral, midline transhyoid, and lateral pharyngotomy
An external approach is indicated for larger tumors--either a lateral pharyngotomy
, lateral thyrotomy, or a laryngofissure technique.
