Laryngoscope 2019 Feb 12;129(2):441-447. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Sean Parker Institute for the Voice, Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Weill Cornell Medical College/New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York, New York, U.S.A.

Objectives/hypothesis: We describe the clinical features of granulomas of the membranous vocal fold secondary to endotracheal intubation, bronchoscopy or esophagogastroduodenoscopy.

Study Design: Retrospective case series.

Methods: Review of cases at a single tertiary institution with evaluation of patient demographic characteristics, time to presentation, time to treatment, and clinical outcomes. Read More

High- and ultrahigh-field magnetic resonance imaging of naïve, injured and scarred vocal fold mucosae in rats.

Dis Model Mech 2016 11 16;9(11):1397-1403. Epub 2016 Sep 16.

Subepithelial changes to the vocal fold mucosa, such as fibrosis, are difficult to identify using visual assessment of the tissue surface. Moreover, without suspicion of neoplasm, mucosal biopsy is not a viable clinical option, as it carries its own risk of iatrogenic injury and scar formation. Given these challenges, we assessed the ability of high- (4. Read More

[Evaluation of the use of hyaluronic acid in iatrogenic scars after phonosurgery (excluding surgical oncology) and ligamento-epithelial abnormalities of the vocal cords].

Rev Laryngol Otol Rhinol (Bord) 2013 ;134(1):61-4

GHM Portes du Sud, 69200 Vénissieux, France.

Between January of 2007 and December of 2011, six patients underwent revision microphonosurgery because of scarring complicating the initial surgery. The technique consisted of detaching the scarred area, the insertion of fibrils of hyaluronic acid (Merogel), a microsuture and possibly intra-cordal fat injection. A pre-and post-operative phoniatric protocol assessed the results which appear encouraging. Read More

Iatrogenic scarring of the vocal folds after phonosurgery for benign lesions. A descriptive study of 108 patients.

Rev Laryngol Otol Rhinol (Bord) 2014 ;135(2):57-61

Objectives: Patients with iatrogenic scarring of the vocal folds can present with a spectrum of dysphonia ranging from slight hoarseness to very severe dysphonia. In this paper we will describe the clinical and stroboscopic presentation of VFIS, and discuss the possibility of identifying the factors favouring such lesions.

Study Design: A retrospective chart review from 2002 to 2011. Read More

Outcomes of structural fat grafting for paralytic and non-paralytic dysphonia.

Acta Otorhinolaryngol Ital 2011 Jun;31(3):154-60

Otolaryngology Department, Fondazione IRCCS Ca’ Granda Maggiore Policlinico Hospital, Milan, Italy.

Aims of this prospective study were to evaluate the results of vocal fold structural fat grafting for glottic insufficiency and to compare the outcomes obtained in unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) and congenital or acquired soft tissue defects in vocal folds. Sixty-six consecutive patients with breathy dysphonia, in 43 cases (aged 16-79 years) related to UVFP and in 23 cases (aged 16-67 years) related to vocal fold iatrogenic scar or sulcus vocalis, underwent autologous structural fat grafting into vocal folds. Lipoaspirates were centrifuged at 1200 g for 3 min to separate and remove blood, cell debris and the oily layer. Read More

Laryngeal steroid injection for vocal fold scar.

Curr Opin Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2010 Dec;18(6):487-91

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville, Virginia 22908, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Vocal fold scar is generally caused by trauma or from iatrogenic causes such as intubation, radiation therapy or phonomicrosurgery. Once a vocal fold scar has occurred it becomes a difficult problem to treat. There are many different tools that otolaryngologists use for vocal fold scar treatment. Read More

Vocal fold scarring: current concepts and management.

Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 1996 Nov;115(5):474-82

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, Michigan, USA.

Scarring of the vocal folds can occur as the result of blunt laryngeal trauma or, more commonly, as the result of surgical, iatrogenic injury after excision or removal of vocal fold lesions. The scarring results in replacement of healthy tissue by fibrous tissue and can irrevocably alter vocal fold function and lead to a decreased or absent vocal fold mucosal wave. The assessment and treatment of persistent dysphonia in patients with vocal fold scarring presents both diagnostic and therapeutic challenges to the voice treatment team. Read More
