Paper Abstract

Noncontact transendoscopic application of a high-powered Nd:YAG laser was used over six years to treat partial upper respiratory obstruction in 112 large animal cases. Laser irradiation was applied to the standing animal, which has developed into a successful alternative to surgical intervention under general anesthesia for treatment of entrapment of the epiglottis and various nasal pharyngeal masses. Treatment of laryngeal hemiplegia and bleeding disorders of the gutteral pouch were treated by a combined therapy consisting of a surgical approach under anesthesia followed by laser irradiation.
