An extremely laterally positioned vocal cord can result in a large posterior glottal gap – an opening between the two vocal cords even when the functioning vocal cord is fully medialized. A perceptual analysis was designed and completed.
Arytenoid adduction as an adjunct to type I thyroplasty for unilateral vocal cord paralysis.
Arytenoid adduction is more technically challenging than either vocal cord injection or medialization thyroplasty and has a high learning curve. This article is an orphanas no other articles link to it.
This page was last edited on 16 Novemberat The muscle process is pulled by two nylon sutures in simulation of the functions of the lateral cricoarytenoid muscle and the lateral thyroarytenoid muscle. Arytenoid adduction is often performed in conjunction with medialization thyroplasty.

Patients without adductin voice analysis were invited back for its completion. A 2-second segment of sustained vowel was used for perceptual analysis by means of a panel of voice professionals and a rating system.

Objective analysis confirms improvement in voice parameters. Vocal cord injection is ineffective for closing a large glottal gap.
Arytenoid adduction is a surgical procedure used to treat vocal cord paralysis. Videostroboscopic measures of glottal closure, mucosal wave, and symmetry were rated. Closure and mucosal wave improved significantly in both groups.

Subjective analysis confirms marked improvement in laryngeal function in the form of speech, swallowing, and respiration. Subglottic pressure remained unchanged in both groups. Options for surgical treatment of vocal cord acduction include vocal cord injection, medialization thyroplasty, and arytenoid adduction. Purchase access Subscribe to JN Learning for one year.

Arytenoid Adduction for Unilateral Vocal Cord Paralysis
Sign in to make a comment Sign in to your personal account. Both groups had significant perceptual improvement of voice quality.
A combination of medialization and reinnervation would be expected to further improve vocal quality over medialization alone. Evaluation included symptomatic improvement in hoarseness, aspiration, dysphagia, dyspnea, and the radiographic documentation of pneumonia. There were 9 patients in the adduction group and 10 patients in the combined group.
