Surgical Treatment Outcomes of Vocal Process Granuloma After Endotracheal Intubation.
J Craniofac Surg. 2018 Jun; 29(4):e387-e389.JC

Abstract

INTRODUCTION

The objective of this study was to review the clinical characteristics and surgical treatment outcomes of the vocal process granuloma after the endotracheal intubation.

METHODS

A retrospective chart review was performed at Chonnam National University Hwasun Hospital from January 2008 to December 2015.

RESULTS

Twenty-one vocal process granulomas after endotracheal intubation were diagnosed in 13 patients. The most common symptom was hoarseness. Among 13 patients, bilateral vocal process granulomas were in 8 patients. For the remaining 5 patients, their unilateral vocal process granulomas were all left-sided. All the cases of vocal process granulomas after the endotracheal intubation were treated by laryngoscope microsurgery under general anesthesia. Recurrence of vocal process granulomas was identified in 1 lesion.

CONCLUSION

This study suggests that surgery for vocal process granuloma after endotracheal intubation is a good treatment option for a rapid resolution of lesions and the associated symptoms, along with having low recurrence rates.
