Abstract

We report on a case of lingual tonsillar hyperplasia contributing to refractory obstructive sleep apnea in a 5-year-old patient. We describe a novel technique utilizing suspension laryngoscopy and a laryngeal angled shaver to remove obstructive lingual tonsillar tissue. We review the available techniques for lingual tonsillectomy and propose theoretical advantages to the novel approach.
