BACKGROUND Transoral CO2 laser surgery for selected supraglottic tumors results in improved postoperative function and decreased morbidity, with comparable survival to open surgery. Recently, robot-assisted techniques have been reported for the management of supraglottic lesions. There are no reports in the English literature of robotic technology coupled with CO2 laser technology. Our objective was to report the use of such technology. STUDY DESIGN Experimental resection of the supraglottis… CONTINUE READING
