The human larynx plays a pivotal role in airway protection, respiration, and phonation. Laryngeal disorders can be divided into two categories, benign lesions and malignant lesions. Most benign lesions are treatable with surgery and speech therapy, whereas the malignant lesions require more invasive surgery as well as radiation and chemotherapy. Preoperative assessment and anesthesia management for adult laryngotracheal surgery are reviewed.
