Glottic Stenosis: An Anatomic Analysis and New Treatment With a Self-Retaining Interarytenoid Spring.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2019 Mar;128(3_suppl):94S-105S

1 Department of Surgery, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Introduction:: Endotracheal (ET) intubation is a common cause of acquired glottic stenosis. Severe cases often require an irreversible arytenoidectomy/cordectomy, which typically results in poor voice quality. Adult human cadaver larynges were studied to gain insights about ET tube-induced posterior glottic injuries, hoping to create a less invasive remedy. Read More
