To that end, technologies such as laser capture microdissection, or LCM, may provide unparalleled access to the purified diseased human cells directly from tissue specimens.
Surgeries today are usually performed with a C[O.sub.2] laser and microdissection. The procedures that have been advocated include (1) division of the aryepiglottic fold, (2) partial amputation of the epiglottis, (3) suture of the epiglottis to the base of the tongue (epiglottoplasty), (4) removal of redundant supra-arytenoid mucosa and the lateral borders of the epiglottis, and (5) removal of the cuneiform and corniculate cartilages and the surrounding mucosa.
