Basic Info

The patient was then nasotracheally intubated, prepped and draped in sterile fashion and the tongue injected with 2 cc lidocaine with epi. Bovie was used to incise lesion in ellipse down to its base which was sent for pathology. A tongue stitch was used for traction. Hemostasis was also achieved with Bovie. The site was closed primarily with vicryl, deep and superficial. Bipolar was used to treat small surface lesions. All instrumentation was then removed and the patient was turned back over to anesthesia, awakened, and transferred to the recovery room extubated in stable condition.
