OBJECTIVE: This report provides the reader with a state-of-the-art update on a number of common voice problems that require phonosurgical intervention. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING: This multiauthor review is not a position statement of the American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery (AAOHNS) and may reflect institutional preference and/or bias. It arose from a panel discussion at the AAOHNS meeting in 2000. RESULTS: We provide a review of the genesis and management of papillomatosis…

Clinical Practice Guideline: Hoarseness (Dysphonia) (Update)

Objective This guideline provides evidence-based recommendations on treating patients who present with dysphonia, which is characterized by altered vocal quality, pitch, loudness, or vocal effort

Treatment of Laryngeal Contact Granuloma: Surgical Therapy or Conservative Treatment

Conservative treatment, which is a comprehensive anti-reflux therapy, is better than surgical therapy and plays an important role in the treatment of laryngeal contact granuloma.

In-Office Hyaluronate Injection Laryngoplasty as Palliative Treatment for Unilateral Vocal Fold Paralysis

In-office intracordal hyaluronate injection is a safe and effective treatment for UVFP, providing a palliative method to help maintain the patient's voice and quality of life.

Experiencia clínica en el manejo de parálisis cordales en posición abierta: tratamiento actual

A significant improvement of the hoarseness with the phoniatric manage exists in patients with vocal cord paralysis in abduction position, and in the group subject medialization thiroplasty 55% were secondary to surgery with a 77% of postoperating satisfactory evaluation.

Surgical Therapy for Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis

Since the recogn ition of recurrent respiratory papillom atosis (RRP) as a clinical entity, its management has centered on maintain ing a patent, asy mptomatic airway for those individuals affl icted

Common ENT Disorders

This review discusses these presentations and provides the initial management steps, as well as when to refer patients for further evaluation, and recognizes specific signs and symptoms that can help primary care physicians diagnose common ENT disorders.

A retrospective study of contact granuloma

The recurrence rate after surgery was high, and subjective symptoms diminished during voice therapy, but it cannot confirm that it was beneficial for the healing process.

Complications of phonosurgery: Results of a national survey

There appears to be a “learning curve” for performing ML as well as an increased complication rate for those surgeons who perform fewer than two MLs per year and have a total career experience of fewer than 10 procedures.

Pediatric Type I Thyroplasty: An Evolving Procedure

It is concluded that the standard approach for vocal fold medialization in the adult cannot be applied accurately in the pediatric population and the anatomically lower position of the vocal fold must be taken into consideration.

Vocal fold paresis

A retrospective review of the records of 50 consecutive adult patients with VFP found that VFP appears to be underdiagnosed because many VFP patients have compensatory hyperkinetic disorders at presentation.

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

Indirect Laryngeal Surgery in the Clinical Voice Laboratory: The Renewal of a Lost Art

It is concluded that indirect laryngeal surgery in the clinical voice laboratory is an effective, safe, efficient, and less costly alternative to some procedures routinely performed under general anesthesia.

Cricothyroid Subluxation: A New Innovation for Enhancing the Voice with Laryngoplastic Phonosurgery

Cricothyroid subluxation enhanced the postoperative voice of patients regardless of whether they required medialization laryngoplasty alone or whether they also required adduction arytenopexy, which was most remarkable in terms of maximal range capabilities.

Reinke's Edema: Phonatory Mechanisms and Management Strategies

An integrated battery of objective vocal function tests to analyze 20 patients who underwent phonomicrosurgical resection suggested that persistent hyperfunctional vocal behaviors may contribute to postsurgical RE recurrence if therapeutic strategies are not instituted to modify such behavior.

Bilateral medialization laryngoplasty

BML is an effective rehabilitative surgical treatment for symptomatic vocal fold bowing and lipoinjection is useful as an adjunct to BML to enhance the voice outcome in selected cases.
