PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The management of benign vocal fold lesions (BVFLs) continues to evolve. This article will review the recent literature surrounding the nomenclature, cause, diagnosis, and treatment of BVFLs, including polyps, nodules, cysts, and reactive lesions. RECENT FINDINGS: The taxonomy of vocal fold lesions has been refined, and it serves as a common descriptive language for diagnosis, treatment algorithms, and reporting of outcomes. Though these lesions are known to be the result of phonotrauma, investigation into inflammatory mediators, apoptosis, and laryngopharyngeal reflux provide further elucidation of their underlying pathophysiology...

Introduction Voice disorders caused by pseudotumors of the vocal folds or paralysis of the vocal folds with incomplete glottis closure frequently require phonomicrosurgery. These interventions were analyzed with regard to quality of voice after surgery and safety of the intervention. Methods Retrospective analysis of 400 consecutive phonomicrosurgery interventions. The following parameters were collected: distribution of pathologies of the vocal folds, rating of the voice quality by both the surgeon (RBH-system) and patient and videolaryngstroboscopy six weeks after the intervention compared to the state prior to surgery, complications and results of histological examination...

BACKGROUND: Microlaryngoscopy is the preferred and most widely used technique in phonosurgery for the treatment of benign and early malignant glottic lesions. However, the procedure may be technically difficult or impossible due to alterations of the cervical spine that may not allow hyperextension of the head or may present general anesthesia contraindications. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of our surgical approach for lesions of the vocal folds in patients who are not suitable for phonosurgery by microlaryngoscopy...

OBJECTIVES: Stroboscopy is considered the most appropriate tool for evaluating the function of the vocal folds but may harbor significant limitations in children. Still, direct laryngoscopy (DL), under general anesthesia, is regarded the "gold standard" for establishing a diagnosis of vocal fold pathology. The aim of the study is to examine the accuracy of preoperative rigid stroboscopy in children with voice disorders. STUDY DESIGN: This is a retrospective study...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Dysphonia is a common problem in children, especially those of school age. Exploration of vocal folds is often difficult and less accurate in children. The most frequent lesions found in children with chronic dysphonia are vocal nodules, followed by epidermoid cysts and other congenital lesions, such as sulci and mucosal bridges. The treatment is multidisciplinary and it is fundamentally based on vocal rehabilitation. We indicate surgical treatment in children older than 9 years of age for whom the problem persists after rehabilitation, especially if we suspect a congenital lesion of the vocal fold...

Kadri Ila, Aziz Tunc
Acute or chronic laryngitis, laryngeal trauma, vocal cord paralysis, cysts of the vocal cord, and benign or malignant tumors of the vocal folds are frequent causes of hoarseness. It is important to identify the cause of hoarseness to rule out potential malignancies. In this case report, we describe a patient with a bilateral aphthous ulcer in the vocal cords who was admitted with hoarseness and had been previously diagnosed with Behcet disease. Behcet disease is characterized by mucosal aphthous lesions, which are found primarily in oral and genital regions...

In the cases of uncertainty, even if the patient has no complaints about his voice quality, sometimes, benign vocal fold mass lesions are removed to exclude malignancy with the risk of resultant dysphonia. Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) enables a specific visualization of vessel structures in the superficial tissue. Benign lesions of the larynx are frequently characterized by abnormal vessel configuration or an absence of vessels in the area of the lesion. It was hypothesized that, in the primary diagnosis of patients with these benign lesions, the combination of white light and NBI endoscopy enables a better detection compared with white light endoscopy alone...

OBJECTIVE: Currently, various tools have been introduced for the assessment of vocal fold vibration: laryngeal videolaryngoscopy (LV), videokymography (VKG), high speed videoendoscopy (HSV), digital videokymography (DKG), and 2D scanning videokymography (2D VKG). Among these, the authors have recently designed a dual modality examination system using LV and 2D VKG for more detailed information regarding the vibrations of the vocal folds. The clinical availability of this hybrid system offers medical imaging departments a range of potential advantages in the evaluation of vocal fold vibration...
