Aim: Aim of our study was to compare the surgical otolaryngology cases (vocal cord lesions, dacryocystitis, tonsillitis, and oral cavity growth) operated with laser and with conventional technique.
Methods: 89 patients were reviewed. Laser was used in 50 cases.
Results: We found that postoperative pain and intraoperative bleeding was less in patients operated with laser technique. Haemostatis was better achieved. But surgical technique in cases operated with laser needs expertise training.
Conclusion: The CO2 laser is associated with precise and predictable soft tissue interaction, minimal damage surrounding normal tissue and minimal formation of char.
