About Video

This video demonstrate the use of the CO2 LASER to resect malignancies of the larynx. This tool is increasingly being used today in laryngeal malignancies to allow for organ and function preservation. It is important to remember that while the LASER is an excellent tool, and can permit surgical resection transorally, the basic oncosurgical principles of resection remain unaltered. With the advent of transoral LASER resections, the need for partial laryngectomies has decreased. Magnification of the operating microscope and precise cutting with the CO2 LASER help to achieve tumor-free cut margins with a greater confidence, without unnecessarily sacrificing normal tissues. It is important to have a frozen section control of all resected margins to check for adequacy of tissue removal.
