Laser Micro: Laryngoscopic Surgery

What is micro laryngeal surgery?

Micro laryngeal surgery is a minimally invasive procedure used to correct voice disorders, speaking or breathing difficulties or other problems affecting the larynx.

Larynx which is located in the front of the neck and helps us breathe, swallow and speak as it controls the opening and closing of the windpipe .It is also where the vocal cords are found.

Indications for micro laryngeal Surgery

Sound that comes from the vibration of the vocal cords is the primary source of speaking and singing. Vocal cords are lined bythe mucosa. Any irregularities on or underneath the vocal cord mucosa can make it vibrate abnormally and cause a voice change. Vocal cord polyps, nodules, cysts, and papilloma are some of the benign lesions that can develop on the vocal cords.

Microscopic Laryngeal surgery is done if Laryngeal examinations reveal the source of a persistent cough, hoarseness or various voice problems to be some Nodule, polyp or cyst on the vocal cords

The treatment of vocal cord lesions depends on the nature of the problem and the degree of voice change .Medications, speech therapy and Microlaryngeal surgery are the mainstays of the treatment

What is the Procedure for micro laryngeal surgery?

General anesthesia is required when a patient is undergoing microscopic voice surgery. Laryngoscope is properly placed in the patient’s mouth and navigated into the throat. Special surgical tools are inserted through the laryngoscope and directed into the larynx to reach the vocal folds. Making use of the microinstrumentsand high magnification capabilities, the surgeon approaches the area in which the growth has been identified with precision and care.

Lesion is dissected away and completely removed with the microsurgical cutting tools. This technique allows for incredible accuracy in order to ensure that only the damaged tissue is removed and the surrounding area remains unaffected. Since majority of the laryngeal structure is left intact and completely unharmed, microscopic voice surgery is a minimally invasive technique that offers a rapid healing.
