Bilateral vallecular cyst: transoral robotic resection

Bilateral vallecular cyst: transoral robotic resection Vallecular cyst is more frequent in neonatal life, but could be present in adults. Frequently it is asymptomatic although some people has foreign body sensation upon swallowing and obstructive problems to sleep. The best treatment for these cases is complete resection, as recurrence is usual with any cyst remnant wall causing re-accumulation.

Abstract

Vallecular cyst is more frequent in neonatal life, but could be present in adults. Frequently it is asymptomatic although some people has foreign body sensation upon swallowing and obstructive problems to sleep. The best treatment for these cases is complete resection, as recurrence is usual with any cyst remnant wall causing re-accumulation. We present the case of a patient with symptomatic vallecular cyst treated with transoral robotic surgery. The technique confirmed the advantages related with tridimensional vision close to the cyst, associated with multi-articulated 5 mm EndoWrist® instruments that made real safe and efficient surgery.
