OBJECTIVE To give new insights into the pathogenesis of vocal fold nodules: (a) why the female/male ratio is so extreme, (b) how an hourglass-shaped vibration pattern - eliciting a localized microtrauma - originates, and (c) what the roles of muscular tension imbalance and of behavioral aspects are. MATERIALS AND METHODS Simulations with a 3-dimensional computer model of the vibrating vocal folds. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION (1) A slightly incomplete dorsal vocal fold adduction is a first… CONTINUE READING
