Abstract Laryngomalacia LRM is the most common laryngeal abnormality of the newborn caused by a long curled epiglottis which prolapses posteriorly. Epiglottis prolapse during inspiration acquired laryngomalacia is an unusual cause of airway obstruction and a rare cause of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome OSAS . We present a minimally invasive technique where epiglottis on cadaveric larynx specimens was treated with CO2 laser. The cartilage reshaping effect induced by laser irradiation was capable of exposing the glottis opening widely. This technique could be used in selected cases of LRM and OSAS due to epiglottis prolapse as an alternative less morbid approach. Introduction Cartilage reshaping techniques are used in the field of reconstructive surgery in cases of congenital or .
