In children, recurrent respiratory papillomatosis is the most common benign neoplasm of the airway. The disease frequently involves the larynx and may spread to extralaryngeal sites. Use of a microdebrider has been suggested as a safe and low-cost technique which reduces operating time, compared with laser removal of laryngeal lesions. We describe a technique for using a microdebrider to remove tracheal papillomas when the larynx is obliterated with the disease.
