An endoscopic silastic kell for anterior glottic webs

  • D. A. Parker (a1) and A. R. Das Gupta (a2)


The use of a specially designed silastic keel endoscopically inserted into the larynx to prevent restenosis after division of anterior commisure webs of the larynx is described. The treatment of such webs is discussed.
