Clients with adductor spasmodic dysphonia (ADSD) tend to exhibit inter- and intraclient variability of signs and symptoms. This variability may result in inaccurate assessment of severity. Accurate assessment of severity requires knowledge concerning the factors that affect the expression of ADSD signs and symptoms. This study examined ADSD sign expression as a function of voicing and syntactic complexity. Fifteen ADSD participants and 15 control participants completed a task consisting of 30… Expand
The Influence of Linguistic Demand on Symptom Expression in Adductor Spasmodic Dysphonia.

TLDR
Lexical density and lexical frequency modulated the frequency of symptom expression in classic forms of SD in this purposive sample, providing support for the hypothesis that variation in linguistic demand may modulate symptoms expression in SD. Expand
Toward Improved Differential Diagnosis of Adductor Spasmodic Dysphonia and Muscle Tension Dysphonia
TLDR
This investigation examined the diagnostic value of variable sign expression based upon phonetic loading as a means to disambiguate ADSD and MTD, and assists in discriminating ADSD from MTD. Expand
Influence of consonant voicing characteristics on sentence production in abductor versus adductor spasmodic dysphonia.
TLDR
The two subtypes of SD exhibit differential performance on the basis of consonant voicing in short, simple sentences; however, each subgroup manifested voicing-related differences on a different variable (voice quality vs sentence duration) suggest different underlying pathophysiological mechanisms for ABSD and ADSD. Expand
Task Specificity in Adductor Spasmodic Dysphonia Versus Muscle Tension Dysphonia
TLDR
This study examined the diagnostic value of “task specificity” as a marker of ADSD and its potential to differentiate ADSD from muscle tension dysphonia (MTD), a functional voice disorder that can often masquerade as ADSD. Expand
Reliability and Validity of Speech Evaluation in Adductor Spasmodic Dysphonia.
TLDR
Both perceptual evaluation and acoustic measures alone were found likely to overlook patients with true ADSD and the sensitivity and the specificity were calculated. Expand
Differential diagnosis of muscle tension dysphonia and spasmodic dysphonia

TLDR
Although perceptual voice evaluation remains the standard for differential diagnosis of ADSD and MTD, knowledge of factors that influence the severity of sign expression in ADSD is important to differential diagnosis. Expand
Combined modality treatment of adductor spasmodic dysphonia.
TLDR
People with adductor spasmodic dysphonia (ADSD) who received voice therapy after initial BTX-A injections did not experience longer injection effect duration or significantly greater improvements in V-RQOL or acoustic variables than participants in BT X-A only or BTx-A plus sham therapy groups. Expand
Differentiation of adductor-type spasmodic dysphonia from muscle tension dysphonia by spectral analysis
TLDR
This study suggests that experienced speech language pathologists can distinguish AdSD from MTD with a high degree of sensitivity and specificity based on spectral analysis. Expand
Development of Differential Diagnosis Scale Items for Adductor Spasmodic Dysphonia and Evaluation of Clinical Availability
TLDR
The differential diagnosis scale of ADSD was revealed as having validity and reliability and it is considered that it will be useful for differentiating ADSD and MTD in the clinical field. Expand
Spasmodic Dysphonia: a Laryngeal Control Disorder Specific to Speech
  • C. Ludlow

TLDR
Research is needed to address the basic cellular and proteomic mechanisms that produce this disorder to provide intervention that could target the pathogenesis of the disorder rather than only providing temporary symptom relief. Expand

Adductor spasmodic dysphonia: standard evaluation of symptoms and severity.
TLDR
A standardized measure called the Unified Spasmodic Dysphonia Rating Scale (USDRS) is developed in cooperation with a team of 118 experienced voice judges to allow more consistent and complete data collection, both clinically and in research clinical trials. Expand
Adductor spasmodic dysphonia and muscular tension dysphonia: acoustic analysis of sustained phonation and reading.
TLDR
The acoustic analysis presented in this study could be used as a method to assist in distinguishing between the two disorder types and suggests that control of the larynx varies as a function of task demand, a finding not evident in the functionally based disorder of MTD. Expand
Perceptual Characteristics of Adductor Spasmodic Dysphonia
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the “extended” GRBAS system is suitable for perceptual characterization of ADSD on the grounds of the fair-to-good interobserver variability, and appropriate for clinical use. Expand
Phonatory and manual reaction times of women with idiopathic spasmodic dysphonia.
TLDR
This investigation compared the simple reaction times of 10 idiopathic spasmodic dysphonic women and 10 normal-speaking women matched individually for age and handedness to investigate factors which potentially can influence sensory-motor pathways prior to and during speech. Expand
Acoustic variations in adductor spasmodic dysphonia as a function of speech task.
TLDR
Findings indicated that those with ADSD produced a greater frequency of aberrant acoustic events than the controls during both tasks. Expand
Effects of botulinum toxin injections on speech in adductor spasmodic dysphonia
TLDR
Significant reductions in pitch and voice breaks, phonatory aperiodicity, and sentence time occurred only when injections resulted in unilateral vocal fold paralysis, and returned with the restoration of vocal fold movement 3 months later. Expand
Dynamic aspects of phonatory control in spasmodic dysphonia.
TLDR
SD patients had no difficulty with the onset of laryngeal movement but were slow to achieve phonation, indicating a movement-control disorder affecting vocal fold adduction for phonation onset. Expand
Identification of symptoms for spasmodic dysphonia and vocal tremor: a comparison of expert and nonexpert judges.
TLDR
The results of this study demonstrated that nonexpert judges could be trained to identify the speech symptoms associated with ADSD, ABSD, and vocal tremor, and the overall speech symptom profiles for each type of voice disorder appeared comparable to those obtained from the expert judges. Expand
The dystonic larynx
TLDR
Spastic Dysphonia or spasmodic dysphonia has been shown to be a focal laryngeal form of dystonia, and Fiberoptic videostroboscopy, EMG, and voice spectrograms are very useful for diagnosis. Expand
Spectrographic comparison of two types of spastic dysphonia.
TLDR
A spectrographic comparison of the voices of two patients with spastic dysphonia demonstrated differences in vocal characteristics, compatible with the viewpoint that there may be two types of spastic Dysphonia. Expand
