One component of several otolaryngological surgeries is the reshaping of cartilage. Several previous studies have demonstrated the efficient achievement of this procedure through electromechanical reshaping (EMR), a technique that involves the direct application of voltage to cartilage mechanically deformed in a jig. Two main parameters, voltage and application time, may be varied to achieve varying degrees of shape change. Both maximized shape change and minimized intrinsic tissue damage… CONTINUE READING
