          Abstract

          A series of 318 patients utilizing the jet insufflation technique for laser laryngeal anesthesia was studied. The technique utilizes a foil wrapped catheter placed below the vocal cords and attached to the Sanders ventilating adapter. Two pneumothoraces in children, one dental injury and one tube ignition were noted--all without permanent sequelae. Subsequent modification in technique prevented recurrence of these complications. The results indicate that this is a safe technique for laryngeal laser surgery, providing excellent visualization of the larynx while maintaining good oxygenation and airway control.
