KTP laser treatment of recurrent respiratory papillomatosis in the office
Small RRP lesions Patient tolerance and/or preference
Bulky RRP lesions Patient anxiety Significant gag reflex Medical comorbidities that contraindicate an in-office procedure
Patient sits in an upright position in a chair. Physician driving the laryngoscope stands on the patient¢s right side while the assistant, who passes the lidocaine drip catheter and laser fiber, stands on the patient¢s left.
Blood pressure and heart rate measurements before the procedure.
Good knowledge of the laryngeal anatomy Knowledge of KTP laser treatment classifications: KTP V ¢ Noncontact, angiolysis KTP 1 ¢ Noncontact, epithelium intact KTP 2 ¢ Noncontact, epithelium disruption KTP 3 ¢ Select contact or noncontact, epithelial ablation without tissue removal KTP 4 ¢ Contact, epithelial ablation with tissue removal
Advantages: Avoids general anesthesia; allows ¢touch-up¢ removal of small RRP lesions Disadvantages: Not ideal in bulky RRP lesions; not as precise as treatment under general anesthesia
Vasovagal reaction, epistaxis, incomplete removal of RRP lesions, may require multiple procedures, anterior glottic web formation.
