Larynx / Oropharynx
Laser for Larynx or Oropharynx
Laser and ENT are closely linked. Nowadays it is possible to carry out a vast number of surgeries thanks to the laser therapy. We provide the most suitable laser – no matter for clinical or ambulant purposes.
The number of laser treatments in the field of ENT is rising for several years now. Thanks to this innovative technology various applications are taking place office or theater based. A.R.C. Laser is offering the right laser instrument that meets your needs: Diode, KTP or CO2.
Example of application NUVOLAS
Generated laser light having a wavelength of 532 nm is applied through thinnest glass fibers - non-contact method - to the tissue. The laser for instance is guided to the larynx to treat enlarged veins and haemangiomas as well aspapillomas and edema. This painless and well-toleratedtreatment is increasingly used in the United States in recent years. It is on the way to replace the surgery under general anesthesia in many cases.
Example of application CO2 Laser
The treatment takes place via micromanipulater in a non-contact procedure, e. g. in the larynx. The advantage of this method lies in the great distance at which tissue can be treated compared to ordinary handpieces with limited reach. Carcinomas, cysts or granulomas can therefore be removed effectively even in anatomically hard-to-reach regions.
Various treatments can be applied with the laser:
- Polypectomy in the field of vocal cords
- Microsurgery of the vocal cord
- Vocal cord nodes
- Haemangioma- and ectasia coagulation
- early laryngeal carcinoma
- Glottis carcinoma resection
- Reinke's edema
- Tracheal stenosis
- Laser-assisted Uvulopalatoplasty (LAUP)
- Fibroma- and granuloma resection
- Partial glossectomy
- Vocal cord lesions (benign and malignant)
- Zenkers diverticulum
- Congenital laryngeal stenoses
- Cyst removal
- Tumor excision
- Neoplastic stenosis
- Vascular lesions
- Tumor vaporization
