Dr.K.O.Paulose FRCS DLO, Consultant ENT Surgeon, Jubilee Hospital, Trivandrum, Kerala, India.
65 year old man came to the ENT clinic in Jubilee Hospital, Trivandrum, with husky voice since 6 weeks and found to have a lesion on the vocal cord which has to be removed by micro laryngoscopy under General anesthesia. He was a heavy smoker for 30 years. The lesion looks like early Cancer which has to be confirmed by histo pathological examination.
Microlaryngoscopy is a diagnostic or therapeutic procedure performed to treat pathological conditions in the voice box or the larynx. Using specialized instruments and a surgical microscope, highly magnified views of the vocal cords and surrounding regions are obtained. Surgical removal of lesions is performed under this high magnification with specially designed micro instruments. Surgery performed with this technique is believed to be beneficial to the patient by decreasing healing time and leading to a better postoperative voice outcome.
