Advantages of using the flexible fiber CO2 surgical laser in resection of elongated soft palate have allowed me to perform over 350 soft palate resections with very little morbidity.
A CO2 laser significantly facilitates oral soft tissue surgery. Because it coagulates blood vessels, the laser creates a clear surgical field. This enables the clinician to make conservative incisions and save time that otherwise would have been spent on hemorrhage management.
