Abstract

Zenker's diverticulum, though common in western countries is uncommon in India. This diverticulum is an extension of mucosa through Killian's dehiscence. Various surgical methods have been described for the treatment of this condition including the use of lasers but none in Indian Journals. In this paper we describe a case of Zenker's diverticulum where diverticulotomy using KTP532 laser was successfully performed. Its advantages over other techniques are mentioned.
