Paper Abstract

Laryngomalacia is the most common cause of inspiratory stridor in children. This disease of excess tissue collapse most often does not require surgical correction. Surgery when necessary is best performed with the aid of the carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, delivered through a mirrored-arm micromanipulator- controlled system, while the supraglottis is exposed using a bivalved laryngoscope. This paper reviews the details of surgical technique used for the safe alleviation of airway distress due to larnyngomalacia.
