Abstract

With fiber-based lasers that may be passed via the working channel of a flexible laryngoscope, in-office laser laryngeal surgery has become possible. The potassium-titanyl-phosphate laser has several features that make it ideal for laryngeal surgery, and it is now the laser of choice for in-office management of a variety of laryngeal lesions. Its applications have expanded significantly since its introduction, with reports of new indications continuing to appear in the literature. This article provides a comprehensive review of the indications and technical details of in-office potassium-titanyl-phosphate laser laryngeal surgery, and a summary of the existing literature regarding outcomes of these procedures.
