A rabbit vocal fold laser scarring model for testing lamina propria tissue-engineering therapies.


OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To develop a vocal fold scarring model using an ablative laser in the rabbit as a platform for testing bioengineered therapies for missing or damaged lamina propria. STUDY DESIGN Prospective controlled animal study. METHODS An optimal laser energy level was first determined by assessing the depths of vocal fold injury created by a… (More)
