A Preliminary Study of Vocal Health Among Collegiate A Cappella Singers.

J Voice 2018 Nov 12. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Department of Otolaryngology, Stanford University School of Medicine. Stanford, California. Electronic address:

Objective: Collegiate a cappella groups have grown significantly in popularity and prominence; however, there have been few studies that evaluate the vocal health of this subgroup of young singers. The objective of this preliminary study was to conduct a multiparametric evaluation of the vocal health characteristics of a sample of collegiate a cappella singers. We further tested whether differences in vocal health assessments exist between a cappella singers with and without vocal training and trained collegiate singers who do not participate in a cappella groups.

Widening of posterior glottis through rotation of the arytenoid on its axis: Report of nine cases.

Am J Otolaryngol 2018 Sep - Oct;39(5):536-541. Epub 2018 Jun 5.

Airway Surgery Department, Fundación Valle del Lili, Cali, Colombia; Clinical Research Center, Fundación Valle del Lili, Cali, Colombia.

Introduction: Bilateral vocal folds' immobility is a challenge in laryngology. Multiple procedures have been proposed to improve breathing by statically enlarging the glottal airway, what also results in loss of voice and aspiration. We proposed a technique to enlarge the posterior glottis by rotating the arytenoids on its axis, imitating the function of the posterior cricoarytenoid muscle, with the objective of evaluating the results regarding decannulation, voice quality, and bronchoaspiration.

Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery Department, LUMC, University of Leiden, Leiden, The Netherlands.

Introduction: There is no consensus on which voice outcome indicators (VOIs) should be used to compare the merits of the various surgical treatments for unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP). Authors performed a literature review to identify which VOIs are most frequently used and most relevant, in terms of significant change in pre- and post-operative measurements, to assess UVFP surgical treatments.

Method: A Medline/Pubmed literature review was performed and the most frequently used VOIs were identified using a Pareto diagram. Read More

Parameters and Scales Used to Assess and Report Findings From Stroboscopy: A Systematic Review.

J Voice 2018 Nov 2;32(6):734-755. Epub 2017 Nov 2.

Department of Health Science and Research, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina; Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina; Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois. Electronic address:

Objective: Laryngeal endoscopy with stroboscopy, a critical component of the assessment of voice disorders, is rarely used as a treatment outcome measure in the scientific literature. We hypothesized that this is because of the lack of a widely used standardized, validated, and reliable method to assess and report laryngeal anatomy and physiology, and undertook a systematic literature review to determine the extent of the inconsistencies of the parameters and scales used in voice treatment outcome studies.

Study Design: Systematic literature review. Read More

Linear Measurements of Vocal Folds and Laryngeal Dimensions in Freshly Excised Human Larynges.

J Voice 2018 Sep 12;32(5):525-528. Epub 2017 Oct 12.

Phoniatric Unit, Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Department, Faculty of Medicine, Zagazig University, Zagazig, Egypt.

Introduction: Understanding the morphology of the larynx, one of the most complex organs of the human body, is an important step toward understanding the detailed laryngeal anatomy, and physiology. Different studies have described the linear measurements of the larynx in different measuring methods, but no studies have been structured to describe vocal fold length in freshly excised larynges.

Objectives: The aim of this study was to describe exact anatomical measurements of vocal folds and some laryngeal structures in freshly excised larynges, and to compare such measurements between males and females. Read More

Botulinum Toxin Injections Into the Lateral Cricoarytenoid Muscles for Vocal Process Granuloma.

J Voice 2018 May 1;32(3):363-366. Epub 2017 Aug 1.

Drexel University College Of Medicine, Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Objective: Contact granulomas are benign, exophytic inflammatory lesions of the larynx that typically arise on or near the vocal process of the arytenoid cartilage. The most common management options include voice therapy and antireflux pharmacotherapy, intralesional steroid injections, botulinum toxin injections, and surgical excision. In-office Botox injection into the lateral cricoarytenoid (LCA) muscle can be effective even for recurrent granulomas. Read More

Voice Improvement in Patients with Functional Dysphonia Treated with the Proprioceptive-Elastic (PROEL) Method.

J Voice 2018 Mar 18;32(2):209-215. Epub 2017 Jul 18.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Loma Linda University Health, Loma Linda, California.

The objective of the study was to analyze the outcome of the proprioceptive-elastic (PROEL) voice therapy method in patients with functional dysphonia (FD). Fifty-two patients with FD were involved in the study; they were composed of three subgroups of patients with (1) FD without glottal insufficiency (n = 28), (2) FD and glottal insufficiency (n = 9), and (3) FD, glottal insufficiency, and vocal nodules (n = 15). A multidimensional assessment protocol including videolaryngostroboscopy; maximum phonation time; perceptual evaluation of dysphonia with the Grade, Instability, Roughness, Breathiness, Asthenia, and Strain (GIRBAS) scale; and 10-item version of the Voice Handicap Index was conducted before and after 15 sessions of voice therapy.

Evaluating Post-Radiotherapy Laryngeal Function with Laryngeal Videostroboscopy in Early Stage Glottic Cancer.

Front Oncol 2017 12;7:124. Epub 2017 Jun 12.

Department of Radiation Oncology and Molecular Radiation Sciences, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, United States.

Objective: Dysphonia is common among patients with early stage glottic cancer. Laryngeal videostroboscopy (LVS) has not been routinely used to assess post-radiotherapy (RT) voice changes. We hypothesized that LVS would demonstrate improvement in laryngeal function after definitive RT for early-stage glottic cancer. Read More

Stroboscopic Vision to Induce Sensory Reweighting During Postural Control.

J Sport Rehabil 2017 09 12;26(5). Epub 2017 Jun 12.

2 Division of Athletic Training, School of Applied Health Sciences and Wellness, College of Health Sciences and Professions, Ohio University, Athens, OH.

Context: Patients with somatosensory deficits have been found to rely more on visual feedback for postural control. However, current balance tests may be limited in identifying increased visual dependence (sensory reweighting to the visual system), as options are typically limited to eyes open or closed conditions with no progressions between.

Objective: To assess the capability of stroboscopic glasses to induce sensory reweighting of visual input during single-leg balance. Read More
