Abstract

One of the indications for CO2 laser surgery in benign laryngeal disease is the treatment of stenosis. Thirty-two patients with laryngeal stenosis after partial horizontal surgery of the larynx were treated with endoscopic CO2 laser surgery. The presence of laryngeal stenosis either impeded decannulation or produced dyspnea in decannulated patients. Results were satisfactory, with 84% of patients decannulated within 2 or 3 months of laser surgery.
