ABSTRACT: Endolaryngeal cold-plasma microsurgery for the treatment of benign neoplasms in the larynx used under conditions of high-frequency jet ventilation of the lungs is both a diagnostic tool and a method by which the extent of surgical intervention can be planned. It enables the surgeon to remain in direct contact with the operating field via the tip, to make tangential incisions and probing with a high degree of accuracy. Also, the method ensures bloodless and sterile intervention that induces a less pronounced inflammatory reaction compared with that associated with conventional surgical procedures for the removal of benign laryngeal neoplasms. The methods meet the main criteria for basal surgery; it produces the statistically significant improvement of the voice quality and of dynamic endoscopic characteristics of the larynx.
