Lingual cyst

 

Lingual cyst oftentimes develops as mucous gland secretes abnormally large amount of mucus, which accordingly lead to the obstruction of the mucinous duct. The most primary pathogenic factor for such disorder is lingual inflammation or traumatic injury. Since lingual cyst located at the root of tongue base, and is adjacent to the glottis and the epiglottisits, its expansion growth leads to the obstruction of the upper respiratory tract. Although such kind of cyst is a benign disease, given its special location, it is commonly acknowledged that such condition could cause serious consequences as respiratory difficulty, laryngospasm, or even the dislocation of the epiglottis, and thus should be treated timely and appropriately.

 

Treatment options

 

Surgical treatment has long been the primary solution for lingual cyst. Traditional surgical methods include the bag-making technique under laryngoscope, puncture and extraction of the cyst, etc, however, there is a high rate of relapse after surgery. In the mean time, a complete resection of the cystic wall is another feasible surgical method, nevertheless, since it requires deeper operation location, causing more surgical injury and bleeding, this method could give rise to lingual edema, respiratory difficulty, or other forms of surgical complications.

 

The low temperature plasma RF ablation is a novel technique involving in the treatment of lingual cyst. The exquisitely designed plasma wand is capable of cutting diseased tissues at the junction part between the cyst wall and normal tissues around the cyst. Such surgical method is characterized by easy handling, short procedure time and less bleeding, in the meantime, it helps reduce surgery-induced swelling and avoid adverse reaction caused by tracheotomy or trachea catheter indwelling after operation. Patients can eat 6 hours after operation and be discharged the next day after operation, which will greatly reduce the cost of hospitalization.
