About Video

The surgical excision of an anterior glottic web using cold steel instruments is demonstrated in this video. The web can be excised by a number of techniques. The author here has demonstrated the use of cold steel instruments for the same purpose. It is important to place a keel (a silicone tube, used in this case by the surgeon) at the anterior commissure to prevent restenosis. This technique is recommended for membranous webs involving the vocal folds. However, when there is a cartilaginous component to the web along with involvement of the vocal folds, then some additional open procedure may have to be attempted to treat this web.
