The purpose of this study is to examine the most reliable and valid way for rating and comparing videolaryngostroboscopic recordings with a differentiated protocol. 30 high quality videostroboscopic recordings (2-5 minutes) of all kinds of vocal fold pathology were rated independently by 7 experienced laryngologists/phoniatricians, using a standardized and(More)
The DiGeorge syndrome presents clinically as a combination of a congenital cardiopathy with immune deficiency and predisposition to infections, signs of hypoparathyroidis with severe hypocalcaemia in the neonatal period, and facial dysmorphism. New techniques in molecular cytogenetics (in-situ fluorescent hybridisation--FISH) have provided evidence of(More)
Progress in voice rehabilitation after total laryngectomy is probably the most significative event of the last 15 years. The first to realise this procedure in France, the authors describe the state of the art in this field with a study of 160 cases. The results are in the main very positive with approximately 85% of success with all rehabilitation technics(More)
We have studied the qualities of the voice of the laryngectomized patients and theirs possibilities to modify the intensity depending to the pressure. During the measurement, it was necessary to explain to the patient how to use the material and it was an opportunity to help him in the way to product a voice prosthesis. Most of the patients produced a(More)

Dysphonia in the child occurs relatively frequently. More often than not it is the result of strain, but a phoniatric examination is worthwhile to determine whether or not vocal rehabilitation is required, the purpose being to make the child aware of the vocal gesture and correct his or her vocal attitude. A phoniatric follow-up can sometimes determine the(More)
Sometimes incorrectly termed paralyses, idiopathic abnormalities of laryngeal movement pose many problems about their physiopathological mechanism and treatment. In an analysis of 67 cases, the outcome as far as the voice was concerned was favourable in 51 cases, but a return to normal mobility occurred in only 26 cases. An important factor is the delay(More)
The authors tell about the interest of a voice therapy in a special center for the total laryngectomised patients. The oesophageal voice therapy is followed in the collaboration of orthophonist, psychologist and a logopedist doctor. The patient is positioned to insert himself socialy. The medical control is realised by an oto-rhino-laryngologist. After the(More)
In order to assess the degree of velar deficiency as accurately as possible, three tests can be made: a nasofibroscopy, X-rays, and notably xeroradiography, a radiography made under brightness amplification. This check-up indicates the course of action to be undertaken: orthophonic rehabilitation followed, depending on the results, by a surgical operation.(More)
