Stenosis of the larynx presents perplexing problems. No technique has proved totally satisfactory in the management of all varieties of stenosis. The use of CO2 laser in the endoscopic management of stenoses of the larynx has allowed in the E.N.T. Department of Catania University, to treat successfully congenital or acquired stenoses. Three failures have been recorded from severe longdated stenoses with inflammatory etiology and large cartilaginous involvement for which an external surgical procedure is required. Compared with the traditional systems the advantage are due to the bloodless exeresis, to the great reduction of secondary inflammatory processes, to the early reepithelisation, to the low morbility which are the elements connected with endoscopic surgery with CO2 laser.
