Dr. Vishwas K Pai | Dr. Devan PP | Dr. Mahesh SG

Abstract: A 48 years old man presented with history of foreign body sensation in the throat since 3 months and change in voice since 10 days. Preliminary examination and indirect laryngoscopy revealed a 4x3cm transluscent swelling in the region of the right vallecula, obscuring the view of the larynx and laryngopharynx. Under endotracheal general anesthesia, direct laryngoscopy was done in the Boyces position, which showed the cystic mass arising from the vallecula. Keeping in mind the conventional modalities of treatment like marsupialisation, de-roofing etc. , we decided to opt for an innovative technique for removal of the cyst, i. e. snaring.
