Endoscopic treatment of the hypopharyngeal diverticulum with the carbon dioxide laser



Endoscopic treatment of the hypopharyngeal diverticulum with the carbon dioxide laser



Endoscopy 17(6): 205-206



Diathermic coagulation and cutting in the endoscopic treatment of hypopharygeal diverticula was replaced by CO2 laser evaporisation. Endoscopic laser surgery was performed in 37 patients, with complete or almost complete relief in all cases. The rate of complications is low.
