Abstract
Supraglottic stenosis (SPGS) after supraglottoplasty (SGP) for laryngomalacia (LM) is rare, has debilitating consequences in very small patients, and there is no clear mention of its treatment in the current literature. We describe our technique of treating SPGS using the CO javax.xml.bind.JAXBElement@275e51c4 laser and endoscopic suturing aimed at achieving maximum mucosalisation of the supraglottis. Additional epiglottopexy using Lichtenberger's needle carrier is important to prevent backward tilt of the epiglottis during healing process. Our modification of the laser-assisted SGP technique would lower the chances of developing this complication. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
