Abstract

With recent developments in medical technology and the introduction of various types of lasers, the role of fiberoptic laryngeal laser surgery (FLS) in laryngology has been significantly expanded. FLS are typically performed under local anesthesia, and patients may return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. This corresponds to the current trend of minimally invasive surgery and may limit unnecessary general anesthesia, reduce medical costs, and increase patient compliances. Main indications of FLS procedure were vocal polyp, recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, vocal fold granuloma and vocal fold dysplasia. In this review, we discuss practical tips and unique value of FLS.
