Objective To evaluate the safety, tolerability, and voice outcomes of office-based photoangiolytic laser treatment of Reinke’s edema. Study Design Case series with chart review. Setting Academic medical center. Subjects and Methods We performed a retrospective analysis of patients undergoing office-based laser treatment of endoscopy-proven Reinke’s edema. Safety and tolerability were evaluated by reviewing complications. Voice outcomes were analyzed by comparing pre- and postprocedural acoustic…

Treatment Outcomes and Adverse Events Following In-Office Angiolytic Laser With or Without Concurrent Polypectomy for Vocal Fold Polyps

In-office angiolytic laser procedures can be an effective alternative treatment for vocal polyps, although with possible need for multiple treatment sessions and occasional occurrence of minor postoperative adverse events.

Two-handed tying technique in vocal fold mucosa microsuture for the treatment of Reinke’s edema

Microsuturing of Reinke’s edema microflaps using the two-handed tying technique can achieve the similar effect with the knot pusher method, and save operation time while the surgeon is well trained.

Safety of in-office laryngology procedures.

IOLP are safer that suspension laryngoscopy under general anaesthetic, and patient characteristics and potential complications of both the procedure and of topical anaesthetic use must be considered.

The Use of 532-Nanometer-Pulsed Potassium-Titanyl-Phosphate (KTP) Laser in Laryngology: A Systematic Review of Current Indications, Safety, and Voice Outcomes

The use of KTP laser procedures for treatment of laryngeal disease has increased over the past decade, especially for office-based management of vocal fold lesions and there is an important heterogeneity among studies concerning laser settings, indications, and outcomes used for the assessment of treatment effectiveness.

Reinke's edema management and voice outcomes

This review provides perspectives on current and future management of Reinke's edema, a cause of chronic dysphonia that is difficult to manage.



Analysis of Potassium Titanyl Phosphate Laser Settings and Voice Outcomes in the Treatment of Reinke’s Edema

This is the first study to provide detailed information on laser settings, energy delivery, and treatment effect in RE management; these results may guide clinical use of this modality, especially for novice laser surgeons.

Cost Savings of Unsedated Office-Based Laser Surgery for Laryngeal Papillomas

UOLS is now an effective alternative to traditional operating room-based suspension microdirect laryngoscopy under general anesthesia and the potential cost savings are tremendous; however, at present significant financial disincentives prevent proliferation of this technology.

One-year follow-up results of combined use of CO2 laser and cold instrumentation for Reinke’s edema surgery in professional voice users

Combined use of CO2 laser and cold instrumentation provides a reliable and safe method for Reinke’s edema surgery, and cessation of smoking, voice rest and control of the laryngopharyngeal reflux contribute to the success of surgery.

Use of the Microdebrider for Reinke's Edema Surgery

A new technique to achieve this strategy (edema reduction and minimal mucosal damage) with a new surgical tool—the microdebrider—in the surgical therapy for Reinke’s edema is presented.

Carbon Dioxide Laser Microsurgery of Benign Vocal Fold Lesions: Indications, Techniques, and Results in 251 Patients

Two hundred fifty-one carbon dioxide laser-assisted cases of microphonosurgery are reported. Our series includes 167 women (66.5%) and 84 men (33.5%), with a mean age of 41 (±11) years. Single

Office-based laryngeal laser surgery with the 532-nm pulsed-potassium-titanyl-phosphate laser

Technologies to enhance laryngoscopic imaging and lasers, along with socioeconomic forces, should lead to increasing numbers of laryngeal procedures being done in the office with local anesthesia, although further development is likely.

Complications of Suspension Laryngoscopy

Although minor complications frequently occur during suspension laryngoscopy, it is a relatively safe procedure with a low risk of significant morbidity.
