Laser surgical excision of a hypopharyngeal hemangioma using the CO2/Nd: YAG combination laser



Laser surgical excision of a hypopharyngeal hemangioma using the CO2/Nd: YAG combination laser



Hno 43(6): 389-392



Hemangiomas of the upper aerodigestive tract may present a therapeutic challenge depending on their size, location and symptoms. We present a rare case of cavernous hemangioma of the aryepiglottic fold applaning in an adult. First symptoms were dysphagia and hoarseness. Surgical removal was performed with a CO2/Nd: YAG combination laser under microscopic control. After a regular postoperative course the patient has remained disease-free after a 2 year follow up period. We suggest the use of the CO2/Nd: YAG combination laser as preferred treatment in cases of exophytic hemangiomas, because of the favorable combination of excision with photocoagulation effects.
