Paper Abstract

The results of the laser microsurgical treatment of the 273 patients with different pathological changes in the larynx are presented in the paper. In this number are included cases with tumors (80), precancers (40), papillomatosis (17), and stenosis of the larynx (71). Patients were treated with carbon-dioxide surgical laser with the laser beam power ranging from 12 to 28 watts depending on the pathology and its advance. Positive results of the treatment were observed in 73% to 100% of cases in different groups of patients. The authors suggest that in some cases the carbon-dioxide laser is only an alternative tool but in many cases, e.g., in papillomatosis, it is much better than traditional equipment. There are also cases such as hemangioma where the laser is an unreplaceable surgical technique.
