After total laryngectomy, the placement of a tracheoesophageal (TE) puncture offers the possibility to gain a new voice. However, the produced TE speech is known to have a lower quality and intelligibility. The goal of this paper is to identify and quantify the acoustic artefacts in TE speech. The advantage of this study is twofold. First, the proposed(More)
Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) is caused by a human papilloma virus (HPV). It is a rare, sometimes debilitating disease compromising voice and airway. RRP is characterized by a variable course of disease, potentially leading to frequent annual surgical procedures, the number of which may exceed a hundred during the life time. The therapy focuses(More)
The terms used to describe vocal fold motion impairment are confusing and not standardized. This results in a failure to communicate accurately and to major limitations of interpreting research studies involving vocal fold impairment. We propose standard nomenclature for reporting vocal fold impairment. Overarching terms of vocal fold immobility and(More)
We investigated the accuracy of auditory inferences of personality of Belgian children with vocal fold nodules (VFN). External judges (n = 57) were asked to infer the personality of normophonic (NP) children and children with VFN (n = 10) on the basis of vowels and sentences. The auditory inferred profiles were compared to the actual personality of NP and(More)
After total laryngectomy, the placement of a tracheoesophageal (TE) pros-thesis offers the possibility to recover a new voice. However, the quality of the resulting TE speech is known to be degraded. To assess a patient's voice, current approaches rely either on quality-of-life questionnaires or on a perceptual evaluation carried out by speech therapists.(More)
To evaluate type IIIB thyroplasty using the excised larynx bench apparatus and determine how altering vocal fold contour by performing bilateral medialization of the inferior vocal fold affects phonation. This procedure could be performed in patients for whom pitch lowering is desirable, such as female-to-male transsexuals or male patients with mutational(More)
BACKGROUND Voice disorders resulting from glottic insufficiency are a significant clinical problem in everyday phoniatric practice. One method of treatment is injection laryngoplasty. Our study aimed to assess the voice quality of patients treated with hyaluronic acid injection into the vocal fold. MATERIAL AND METHODS We studied 25 patients suffering(More)
