OBJECTIVE: Vocal fold nodules are benign vocal fold lesions that can adversely affect quality of life. Differential diagnosis and treatment modalities of this disease are variable and patients often tend to use online materials to learn the insights. Access to knowledge via Internet is very easy; however, it is important to choose wisely because false and biased information might lead the patient to an inappropriate decision. In this study, we have evaluated the quality, readability, and understandability of online materials for vocal fold nodules...

AIM: To translate and validate the singing voice handicap index (SVHI-10) for the Tamil speaking Indian population and to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Tamil version SVHI-10 (TSVHI-10) in classically trained Carnatic singers. METHOD: Following standard translation, a total of 120 classically trained Carnatic singers: 83 singers without voice complaint and 37 singers with voice complaints answered the Tamil translation of the SVHI-10. RESULTS: The TSVHI -10 scores obatined from classically trained Carnatic singers with and singers without voice complaints were analyzed...

Science-education literature is replete with studies examining how students learn anatomy most effectively and efficiently. Some researchers have found that students learn best through hands-on learning, whereas other investigators have concluded students rate both computer and hands-on learning as effective and enjoyable. No study to date, however, has examined anatomical learning of preservice music education students on anatomical and physiological knowledge of the larynx. Therefore, the purpose of this investigation was to examine the effectiveness of virtual versus laboratory dissection in learning anatomy of the laryngeal structure for preservice music educators in a vocal pedagogy course...

OBJECTIVE: Voice disorders are common and negatively affect various life domains such as occupational functioning and emotional well-being. Perceived present control, a factor that is amenable to change, may reduce the effect of voice disorders on these outcomes. This pilot study aimed to (1) establish the feasibility, usability, and acceptability of a web-based perceived present control intervention for individuals with voice disorders and (2) gather preliminary data on the effectiveness of the intervention...

OBJECTIVE: This study examined the identification of emergency calling across distance without electronic assistance, as in the event of an electric grid black-out or being stranded in the wilderness. METHODS: Fifteen participants were callers and forty-one participants were recorders. Ten callers underwent an hour-long training in how to produce vocally healthy loud phonation, as well as, yodeled calls. Outdoors, the callers individually called out a set of single and multisyllable words, either yodeled or nonyodeled...

BACKGROUND: Adequate phonation is self-regulated by auditory feedback. Children with bilateral profound hearing loss (PHL) lack this feedback resulting in abnormal voice. Adequate hearing aid use and auditory-verbal therapy (AVT) may improve voice quality in deaf children. OBJECTIVE: To study whether hearing aid use and AVT approach improve acoustic parameters of voice of children with bilateral PHL. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Nineteen children with bilateral PHL were studied...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the safety and immunogenicity of a nonadjuvant human papillomavirus (HPV) type 6 L1 virus-like particle (VLP) vaccine in recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) in local Chinese patients. METHODS: Patients with RRP who had undergone surgical treatment before intramuscular administration of an escalating dose of HPV type 6 L1 VLPs (1, 5, and 25 µg at 4 weekly intervals) as part of their treatment were followed up for more than 10 years...

OBJECTIVES: Vocal nodules are frequent in children and tend to be reabsorbed after puberty, especially in boys. The aims of the present study were to analyze the progression of nodules in boys after puberty and to investigate the role of microweb in the persistence of these lesions. METHODS: Clinical and videolaryngoscopy evaluations were carried out in boys with vocal nodules treated between 2009 and 2016, followed up to the age of 17 years or until remission of symptoms and reabsorption of the nodules...

PURPOSE: To study the usefulness of voice quality as therapeutic outcome in laryngopharyngeal reflux disease. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 80 patients with reflux finding score (RFS) > 7 and reflux symptom index (RSI) > 13 were treated with pantoprazole, diet, and lifestyle recommendations for 3 months. The therapeutic effectiveness was assessed with RSI; RFS; Voice Handicap Index; blinded Grade, Roughness, Breathiness, Asthenia, Strain, and Instability (GRBASI); aerodynamic and a panel of acoustic measurements before and after treatment...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to validate the acoustic voice quality index (AVQI) version 03.01 and the acoustic breathiness index (ABI) in the German language. METHODS: Concatenated voice samples of continuous speech (cs) and sustained vowel (sv) [a:] from 175 subjects with dysphonia and 43 vocally healthy subjects were perceptually judged for overall voice quality and breathiness severity. First, to reach a higher level of ecological validity, the proportions of cs and sv were equalized regarding the time length...

INTRODUCTION: Athletes with exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) (previously commonly referred to as paradoxical vocal fold motion disorder, or paradoxical vocal fold motion, among other terms) are often misdiagnosed, resulting in prolonged, and at times inappropriate, clinical management. The high prevalence of misdiagnosis is largely due to a lack of universal consensus of key clinical features indicating EILO and a dearth of validated quantitative approaches to accurately detect episodic laryngeal breathing disorders (ELBD) from other pathologies...

OBJECTIVE/HYPOTHESIS: To determine whether the presence and accuracy of a laryngeal medical diagnosis affects novice listeners' judgments of dysphonia. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, within subjects, modified factorial experimental design. METHODS: Twenty-six speakers with dysphonia and four normophonic speakers provided speech recordings. Forty novice clinicians evaluated speech samples for roughness and breathiness using 100-mm visual analog scales in two conditions...

Mary J Sandage, Rita Patel
PURPOSE: This investigation combined measures of upper airway temperature (UAT) with high-speed laryngeal imaging in an individual who smoked a filtered conventional and menthol cigarette to identify laryngeal vibratory differences with upper airway temperature change. It was hypothesized that (1) average UAT differences between trials would be similar with UAT change ≤2°C and (2) high-speed parameters would not differ between trials. METHOD: In a repeated measures design, UAT was measured continuously during smoking...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and demographics of benign vocal fold lesions (BVFL) and trends in its treatment in Korea based on data collected from the National Health Insurance Service database. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Data for patients diagnosed with BVFL (ICM-10 codes J381, J382, J384) from 2006 to 2015 were selected for analysis. Patient characteristics, including sex, age, income, area of residence, and comorbidity, were analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the airflow vibrato characteristics at various pitches and loudness levels during vocal vibrato production. METHOD: This descriptive case series research design included four subjects: 1 baritone, 1 tenor, and 2 sopranos. The extent and rate of airflow vibrato and fundamental frequency vibrato were measured by analyzing /pa:pa:pa:p/ strings with at least 3-4 cycles of vibrato during the vowels. Comparison was made within and between the subjects at different pitches and loudness levels...
