    Abstract

    Background: Adult laryngeal haemangiomas are rare vascular tumours that have been managed by a variety of surgical techniques.

    Methods: This paper describes a case of near-fatal acute airway obstruction secondary to such a lesion, followed by our approach to surgical resection using a laparoscopic bipolar tissue-sealing device.

    Results: This technique resulted in successful excision of the lesion, with no evidence of recurrence at one year of follow up.

    Conclusion: Laparoscopic bipolar instruments can be used for the resection of moderate to large laryngeal haemangiomas as an alternative to laser excision.
