Abstract:

We report an uncommon case of symptomatic venous malformation of the larynx in a 22-year-old man, and the successful surgical management thereof. A detailed radiologic investigation of the lesion was done, followed by surgical excision via a suprahyoid pharyngotomy using cold instruments. Long-term follow-up was maintained, and the patient had subjective and objective resolution of his symptoms and signs at 3 years postoperatively. We conclude that radiology can reveal hitherto unsuspected extensions of vascular malformations in the neck and that surgical excision is a viable mode of treatment in upper aerodigestive venous malformations. © 2011, Vendome Group, LLC.
