Abstract

Supraglottic laryngeal cysts are benign lesions that usually are easily recognized and simply managed. Among these lesions saccular cysts are uncommon, usually large, anomalies of the larynx and can cause severe airway obstruction and even death. Three patients with a saccular cyst were successfully treated by endoscopic CO(2)-laser excision of their lesions. Before microlaryngoscopy and laser procedure, an urgent tracheostomy was required in 1 of our cases.
