Voicing concern: an unusual sequalae of orthognathic surgery.Prog Orthod. 2006; 7(2):220-6.PO
Contact granuloma of the vocal cords is a recognised but unusual complication of prolonged endotracheal intubation. The authors have however encountered a case of contact granuloma associated with short-term intubation of just four hours following orthognathic surgery. Here we briefly describe the orthodontic case and orthognathic surgery. We further explain the presenting symptoms and treatment undertaken for the contact granuloma.
