Abstract Laryngomalacia is the most common laryngeal anomaly. Clinical presentation is most often associated with stridor, which usually resolves spontaneously by the second year of life. Infrequently, laryngomalacia can be severe and cause dyspnea and feeding difficulties. These children require surgical treatment, including tracheostomy. A new procedure has been recently described for the endoscopic excision of the aryepiglottic folds. The authors report results in 39 patients who have been treated with this procedure. One failure required tracheostomy. No recurrence of dyspnea was noticed in the other children. Gastroesophageal reflux, associated with 50\% of our cases, was also noted in our only failure. We advocate endoscopic treatment in children with severe laryngomalacia.
