Volumetric measures of the paralyzed vocal fold using computerized tomography; its clinical implication.
Logoped Phoniatr Vocol. 2020 Apr 22 [Online ahead of print]LP

Abstract

Objective:

To report the volumetric measures of the paralyzed vocal fold in patients undergoing injection laryngoplasty.Material and method: All the medical records of patients with unilateral vocal fold paralysis who had high resolution computerized tomography scan of the neck and chest prior to injection laryngoplasty between October 2015 and May 2018 were included. Volumetric evaluation of the vocal folds was performed by measuring the vocal fold height using coronal images and the vocal fold length and width using axial images.

Results:

A total of 21 patients divided into 13 males and 8 females were identified. The mean age was 56.66 ± 20.94 years. The mean volume of the paralyzed vocal fold was significantly smaller than that of the non-paralyzed vocal fold (p < .05). Similarly, the mean length and height of the paralyzed vocal folds were smaller than those of the non-paralyzed vocal folds (p < .05).

Conclusion:

Volumetric measurements of the paralyzed vocal fold in comparison to the normal vocal fold in a group of 21 patients with unilateral vocal fold paralysis shows the presence of significant difference between the normal and affected site, and the presence of large inter-subject variation. Information on the volume difference between the two vocal folds may be used to better estimate the amount that needs to be injected in medialization procedures.
