PMID:  8133368     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A carbon dioxide laser in a defocused beam was used to vaporize four ranulas and four were treated by a combination of focused beam excision of the dome and vaporization of the wall and base. There was no recurrence in any patient at 6 months and no complications were noted.
