Background and Objectives:
Topical administration of mitomycin-C (MMC) has been reported to reduce or delay scar formation in airway surgery. However, it is not infrequent to experience recurrent stenosis or adhesion of operative wound even after a meticulous MMC application during the laryngeal surgery. Therefore we aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of repeated postoperative MMC applications and the technical feasibility of MMC applications to the laryngeal wound at an outpatient clinic.
We reviewed medical records of 13 consecutive patients who received office-based MMC applications after laryngeal airway surgery at Samsung Medical Center, Seoul, Korea. The patients were grouped into 3 categories according to the site of surgical wound and the purpose of MMC application; group I : supraglottic stenosis (n=5), group II : cordectomy and arytenoidectomy site granulation prevention (n=3), Group III : laryngeal web prevention (n=5). Outcomes in each group and adverse effects of repeated MMC applications were evaluated.
Office-based MMC application was successfully performed one to four times with a week interval for each patient. No significant complications were observed except slightly decreased mucosal wave in one female patient who received 4 times of MMC application at the anterior commissure of vocal fold. Repeated MMC applications at the outpatient clinic resulted in wide or acceptable supraglottic airway in group I, clean wound healing without granulation formation in group II, and negligible or no web formation at the anterior commissure in group III.
: Office-based topical administration of MMC to the larynx was technically feasible. Postoperative repeated MMC applications were effective to reduce recurrent stenosis or adhesion of supraglottic structures, to prevent granuloma formation after laser arytenoidectomy and glottic web formation after anterior commissure resection.
