The authors first of all consider the classification of laryngoceles, their pathways of spreading, their statistical incidence, etiopathogenesis and their main clinical aspects. Next, they report on the most important surgical techniques proposed to date by the various experts for the three anatomical variants of laryngocele. As regards more particularly the mixed type, which seems to be the most frequent, the authors raise some objections to the classical methods. In fact, the latter do not always allow a satisfactory result to be achieved, and in this connection reference is also made to negative experiences reported by some authors. They go on to suggest, for mixed laryngocele, a new technique of combined exheresis by way of the external lateral approach and laryngofissure. The authors illustrate in detail the method proposed and report the case of a patient suffering from a voluminous bilateral laryngocele of mixed type, on whom they operated by applying the new technique, with very satisfactory results.
