Sulcus vocalis remains a surgical challenge despite many recent advances in laryngomicrosurgeries. We previously reported that 585-nm Pulsed dye laser (PDL) exerts favorable outcome in treatment of sulcus vocalis due to its therapeutic effects of collagen rearrangement and improved wound remodeling. In spite of the usefulness of PDL glottoplasty for treating sulcus vocalis, the device is no more available in the country. It prompted us to focus another angiolytic laser ; 532-nm KTP laser which has similar mechanisms of action and has been used for treatment of other laryngeal lesions elsewhere. Herein, we present a case of sulcus vocalis successfully treated with KTP laser. A patient underwent laryngomicrosurgery with angiolytic KTP laser (KTP glottoplasty) by the same surgical procedure with PDL glottoplasty. After the surgery, the patient presented improved voice outcome in time without complications.
