Objective: To identify characteristic patterns of maturation of the human vocal fold lamina propria as it develops into a mature structure. 

Collagen Fiber and Versican Distribution Within the Lamina Propria of Fetal Vocal Folds

To analyze the presence and distribution of collagen fibers and versican in human vocal fold lamina propria of fetal larynges, the objective was to establish a baseline level of consistency in the distribution of these molecules in the vocal fold.

Evaluation of the Human Vocal Fold Lamina Propria Development Using Optical Coherence Tomography

This study investigates the structural organization of the VF microanatomy across gender and age groups using optical coherence tomography (OCT) to identify distinctive features of the vocal fold during development.

Congenital and Acquired Disorders of the Vocal Folds

The histopathologic structure and continuing maturation of a child’s larynx limit the current understanding of the principles and techniques of management of pediatric dysphonia.

Histoanatomical structures of laryngeal atresia: Functional considerations

To study the histoanatomical structure of laryngeal atresia with a focus on the laryngeal functional components in order to evaluate the functional prognosis of laryngeal atresia repair.

Morphology of fetal vocal fold and associated structures.

Injection of cultured autologous fibroblasts for human vocal fold scars

This study evaluated the safety and effectiveness of injection of autologous fibroblasts into the lamina propria layer to treat vocal fold scarring.

Spatiotemporal analysis of vocal fold vibrations between children and adults

Aim of the study is to quantify differences in spatiotemporal features of vibratory motion in typically developing prepubertal children and adults with use of high speed digital imaging.

Airway and Aerodigestive Tract

“Pediatric airway” is a general term that encompasses a significant amount of territory and pathology and is organized by anatomic subsite—supraglottis, glott is, subglottis , trachea, hypopharynx, and pathologies that may affect multiple airway and aerodigestive sites.

Burgeoning knowledge has laid the foundation for more comprehensive models of vocal fold histology and has led to the development of innovative therapies for challenging voice disorders.

Using attenuation coefficients from optical coherence tomography as markers of vocal fold maturation

The goal of this study was to develop a methodology using OCT to identify quantifiable markers of vocal fold development that could be used to assess vocal fold microanatomy.



Premalignant epithelium and microinvasive cancer of the vocal fold: The evolution of phonomicrosurgical management

Phonomicrosurgical treatment of premalignant vocal fold epithelium and microinvasive cancer combines principles of surgical oncology with advanced laryngoscopic microsurgical‐techniques to cure the disease but also to achieve optimal vocal function.

Age-Related Development of the Arrangement of Connective Tissue Fibers in the Lamina Propria of the Human Vocal Fold

The development of the layered structure and the maturity of the fibers appeared to reflect the complexity of phonatory function during adolescence, and the structure of the lamina propria was complete around 17 years of age.

Fine Structure of the Human Newborn and Infant Vocal Fold Mucosae

During infancy, the extracellular matrices synthesized in the maculae flavae appear in the membranous portion of the vocal fold, each at a different time, so as to initiate the 3-dimensional formation ofThe vocal fold mucosa.

Vocal fold physiology.

Endoscopic Vocal Fold Microflap: A Three-Year Experience

Surgical techniques for the removal of vocal fold (VF) disorders that arise within the lamina propria must permit the preservation and/or restoration of VF vibratory characteristics. The endoscopic

Roles of Hepatocyte Growth Factor and Transforming Growth Factor β1 in Production of Extracellular Matrix by Canine Vocal Fold Fibroblasts

This study examines canine vocal fold fibroblasts and describes how the productions of hyaluronic acid, collagen type I, and fibronectin are associated with administration of HGF and transforming growth factor β1.

Reversible Lateralization of the Paralyzed Vocal Cord without Tracheostomy

It is proposed that a reversible endoscopic vocal cord lateral fixation would avoid this morbid procedure by avoiding the need for tracheostomy in cases of bilateral abductor vocal cord paralysis.

What Have Whole Organ Sections Contributed to the Treatment of Laryngeal Cancer?

The study of whole organ sections of laryngectomy specimens has demonstrated the patterns by which cancer spreads from one part of the larynx and hypopharynx to another and added support to the concept of partial laryngesis for selected lesions.
