  • Objectives: Our previous work has shown that the symmetric, smooth, convergent shape of the subglottis reduces turbulent airflow at the glottal entrance. Medialization thyroplasty may alter the glottal shape and is very likely to introduce some degree of glottal asymmetry, which could result in increased turbulence and a reduction in voice quality. This study reports the effects of medializing and not medializing the subglottis in silicone models of human cadaveric larynges. Methods: In… CONTINUE READING
