Laryngomicrosurgery for the Treatment of Glottic Stenosis after Inhalation Injury in a Terrible Subway Accident in Daegu
Background and Objectives
: In order to evaluate the result of the $CO_2$ LASER laryngomicrosurgery for the treatment of glottic stenosis after inhalation injury. Patients and Methods : We retrospectively evaluated 7 patients with inhalation injury on larynx who received their surgical treatment at the Severance hospital on Jun. 2003. The average follow-up duration was 64.9 days and they were 3men and 4women. The average patient age was 30.1 years, We evaluated the preoperative state with neck CT and stroboscopy. The operation was $CO_2$ LASER laryngomicrosurgery and Mitomycin-C application. The postoperative state was evaluated with stroboscopy at POD#6 and POD#2months.
: 6 patients had the intubation as the first care on accident. All 7 patients showed the glottic web and after operation, the vocal cord seemed to be almost normal. The glottic area was widened as 3 times as the preoperative state at POD#6.
: We could lessen the symptoms like dyspnea and hoarseness with laryngomicrosurgery and Mitomycin-C application for patients complaining some laryngeal problems because of the inhalation injury.
