Objectives To compare the voice outcome of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) injection laryngoplasty (IL) vs silicone medialization thyroplasty (MT) in the treatment of unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP). Data Sources Systematic review of English literature from MEDLINE, Google Scholar, Web of Science, Scopus, and the Cochrane library from January 1, 1980, to December 31, 2010. Review Methods Included studies reporting voice-related quality of life (Voice Handicap Inventory [VHI]) following IL… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

The Evaluation of the Short-Term Voice Outcome of Injection Laryngoplasty Using Two Types of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (Radiesse versus Facetem)

The use of Facetem as CaHA injection material could be considered as an alternative material for patients with unilateral vocal cord paralysis and there is no significant difference in efficacy and nor any short-term vocal improvement between Radiesse and Facetam.

Autologous Fat Injection Laryngoplasty for Unilateral Vocal Fold Paralysis

AFIL improves the perceptual outcome and some voice parameters in short-term and long-term results, i.e., jitter, shimmer, and maximal phonation time (MPT).

Five-year results of vocal fold augmentation using autologous fat or calcium hydroxylapatite

Both AF injection via direct microlaryngoscopy and office-based CaHA injection yielded good and comparable 5-year results, with no significant between-group difference.

Learning curve of medialization thyroplasty using a Montgomery™ implant

This study did not show a correlation between surgeon experience and voice outcome measures improvemnts (MPT, ESGP, Shimmer, Jitter), and on the other hand, their results were disappointing.

Office-Based Structural Autologous Fat Injection Laryngoplasty for Unilateral Vocal Fold Paralysis

Office-based structural AFIL is an effective treatment for improving voice-related disability for UVFP patients and significant improvements in grades of dysphonia, breathiness, and asthenia were noted at 3 months postoperatively when perceptual measurements were investigated.

The Choice of Laryngeal Reinnervation Versus Medicalization Laryngoplasty in Unilateral Vocal Fold Paralysis

In pediatric patients, LR would be considered as a good treatment option because all procedures need to general anesthesia, and in young patients when the RLN denervation period is not long, delayed LR may be considered for the treatment of surgery-related UVFP.

Effectiveness of Calcium Hydroxylapatite Paste in Vocal Rehabilitation

Injection of CaHA paste results in significantly improved vocal scores in the majority of patients, and use of the paste was less satisfactory in patients with soft tissue defects because of poor retention of the Paste in the scarred vocal fold remnant.

Multidimensional assessment of functional outcomes of medialization thyroplasty

Results of the present investigation confirm the functionality and effectiveness of MT in patient voice rehabilitation with UVFP, but the means of acoustic voice parameters measured in the study did not reach normal limits, probably because of the remaining underlying condition of UVFP.

Medialization thyroplasty: vocal outcome of silicone and titanium implant

Both silicone and titanium medialization implants showed improvement of vocal outcome, the results of the titanium implant being superior.

Injection versus medialization laryngoplasty for the treatment of unilateral vocal fold paralysis: follow‐up at six months

Injection and medialization laryngoplasty were comparable in their improvement of subjective and objective voice outcomes and both treatment modalities should be included in the otolaryngologist's armamentarium for managing unilateral vocal fold paralysis.

The study findings demonstrate that the thyrohyoid approach can be used successfully in patients who need vocal fold augmentation, and that it is generally well tolerated.
