Intérêt du laser dans la dépilation des lambeaux de reconstruction oro-pharyngo-laryngée‎ : revue de la littérature

Abstract : Laser depilation is the a non-invasive technique that has been used in patients with oro-pharyngo-laryngeal hair related to a surgical reconstruction by flap in head and neck neoplasms. This hair growth is sometimes responsible for an alteration in the quality of life. The aims of this work was to realize a systemic review of the literature to determine the therapeutic relevance of laser depilation and to specify its parameters of use. To answer them, a literature search strategy has been applied in the PubMed database and the question asked according to the PICO criteria was : « In patients with oro-pharyngo-laryngeal hair associated with myocutaneous flap reconstruction, what is the place of the laser therapy found in the literature to allow the hair removal of flaps ? ». 10 publications were selected and the clinical data, lasers parameters and the results of the 40 cases recovered were analysed. Most of them were case reports or small series. Four various types of lasers were used with variables settings, sometimes incompletely informed. The answer was complete in 70% of cases and partial in 22,5%. This work has found a recurrence of 10%, on a medium follow-up of 17 months. Few side effects have been reported. Despite a lack evidence, the laser appears as a relevant therapeutic for the removal of flaps.
