Abstract

Nd:YAG LASER therapy is traditionally used for the treatment of superficial cutaneous and mucosal venous malformations. Venous malformations of the endolaryngeal airway may complex and difficult to manage given the sensitivity and access to this anatomic area. Nd:YAG LASER, may be a good modality to be included in management of these rare lesions with its versatility in delivery systems and hemostatic properties. We reviewed the presentation and response to treatment with Nd:YAG LASER in a 10-year-old child with extensive venous malformation involving the larynx.
