Objective: The paper presented the current application of laser in Otolaryngology in our hospital. Methods: We have applied the carbon dioxide, the YAG, the He-Ne and the Ho:YAG lasers to coagulate or vaporize treated Otolaryngology disease. Results: After treatment, we have a satisfying result. Conclusion: The paper presented the current application of laser respectively in otology, rhinology and pharynolaryngology and some representative of the treated diseases. It also demonstrated that long-term effectiveness of some diseases, such as allergic rhinitis and laryngeal stenosis treated by laser was not satisfying and further studies were expected, laser excision of tonsile was only used in the cases which traditional tonsillectomy was not available. Therefore, to improve clinical laser application greatly, further more research works and cooprations between investors of laser instrument and surgeons of oto-laryngology were necessary. Theory and Clinics of laser application should be improved also.
