Sulcus vocalis

Emma Malmström, Stellan Hertegård
OBJECTIVE: Vocal fold scarring (VFS) and sulcus vocalis (SV) often result in severe and chronic voice disorders. This study compares subjective voice complaints as rated with the Voice Handicap Index and etiological factors for patients with VFS and SV. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Data were collected from the medical records at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Karolinska University Hospital, for 27 VFS patients and 27 SV patients. Descriptive background factors were compared between the groups and data were compared from the Swedish Voice Handicap Index (Sw-VHI) questionnaires...

OBJECTIVE: Sulcus vocalis and vocal fold scar involve derangement of the superficial lamina propria of the vocal fold, which results in significant dysphonia. Many options exist for treatment, most of which have unsatisfactory and unpredictable outcomes. Autologous transplantation of temporalis fascia into the vocal fold (ATFV) has the potential to be a better treatment option, but long-term outcomes have not been well studied. METHODS: Retrospective chart review and patient survey...

OBJECTIVE: The study aimed (1) to evaluate the prevalence of sulcus vocalis (SV) coexisting with vocal fold polyp (SV-VFP), and (2) to determine the effect of their coexistence on voice quality. STUDY DESIGN: This is a retrospective cohort study in a tertiary referral center. METHODS: The medical records of all patients who underwent micro direct laryngoscopy due to VFPs between January 2013 and April 2015 were reviewed. Patients with SV-VFP were identified and data of their demographics, medical history, habits, preoperative and intraoperative laryngeal findings, and pre- and postoperative GRBAS (Grade, Roughness, Breathiness, Asthenia, Strain) score, and compared with the data of patients with solitary VFPs (S-VFPs)...

Purpose: The aim of the present study was to qualitatively and quantitatively characterize vocal fold vibrations in sulcus vocalis by high-speed digital imaging (HSDI) and to clarify the correlations between HSDI-derived parameters and traditional vocal parameters. Method: HSDI was performed in 20 vocally healthy subjects (8 men and 12 women) and 41 patients with sulcus vocalis (33 men and 8 women). Then HSDI data were evaluated by assessing the visual-perceptual rating, digital kymography, and glottal area waveform...

CONCLUSION: Submucosal vocal cyst can occur as a distinct long-term sequelae following pulsed dye laser (PDL) application for sulcus vocalis. It is recommended that the cyst lesion should be surgically removed for treatment. Optimal and precise irradiation of PDL is considered important to avoid the development of a such complication. OBJECTIVE: After several years of clinical practice and an extended period of follow-up of the patients who received PDL application in treating sulcus vocalis, the authors have encountered several cases of secondary submucosal vocal cyst development...

INTRODUCTION: The vocal fold microflap technique is the ideal to remove benign vocal fold pathology. Our objective is to compare the amplitudes of the mucosal wave before and after the closure of microflap defect with fibrin glue, and when microflap is left to heal by secondary intention. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The present study is a retrospective series, including 32 patients treated by intracordal phonosurgery, with closure of the microflap either with fibrin glue or by healing by secondary intention...

UNLABELLED: Sulcus vocalis is one of the most difficult to treat benign vocal fold pathologies. Ford distinguished three types of sulci: I- superficial, II- vergeture and III- true sulcus vocalis. The aim of the study was to assess the results of surgical treatment in patients with sulcus vocalis. Material of the study consisted of 24 patients with type II (16 subjects) and type III sulcus (8 subjects). METHODS: Videostroboscopy, perceptual voice assessment and objective acoustic voice analysis were performed before surgery and at 8 months of follow-up...

A 29-year-old otherwise healthy woman presented with a lifetime history of hoarseness because it had begun to interfere with her career. Examination of both the woman and her 60-year-old father revealed bilateral sulcus vergeture, without inflammation or lesions attributable to phonotrauma. The woman responded well to injection augmentation; the father declined treatment. Combined with existing descriptions of other family groupings, all with sulcus vergeture without signs of inflammation, clinical progression, and little or no apparent behavioral component, this report further suggests that sulcus vergeture (Ford type 2) and sulcus vocalis (Ford type 3) are entirely different entities, despite architectural similarity...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Sulcus vocalis is an epithelial invagination adherent to deep tissues of the vocal fold. Traditionally, dysphonia is believed to result from attenuation or absence of lamina propria and consequent alteration of mucosal dynamics. This conception does not account for several clinical features of the lesion, most notably inflammation. The goal of this study is to elucidate the clinical nature of sulcus by re-examination of its histopathology. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review...

Vocal fold disorders such as laryngitis, vocal nodules, and vocal polyps may cause hoarseness, breathing and swallowing difficulties due to vocal fold malfunction. Despite the fact that state of the art medical imaging techniques help physicians to obtain more detailed information, difficulty in differentiating minor anomalies of vocal folds encourages physicians to research new strategies and technologies to aid the diagnostic process. Recent studies on vocal fold disorders note the potential role of the vascular structure of vocal folds in differential diagnosis of anomalies...

OBJECTIVES: The reported prevalence of sulcus vocalis (SV)/type III, a pathologic groove in the vibratory margin of the vocal fold, varies greatly in the literature. Difficulties in visualizing the defect and a variety of descriptions have complicated the evaluation of SV. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of SV by reviewing strobovideolaryngoscopy (SVL) examinations in subjects with and without dysphonia. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective chart review...

Laryngoscopy in cases of sulcus vocalis reveals bowed vocal folds, resulting in a spindle-shaped chink with glottal incompetence. The anatomic and functional problems and resulting incomplete glottal closure during phonation lead to the presenting symptoms of breathy hoarseness, decrease in maximum phonation time (MPT), and vocal fatigue. These symptoms, however, have been reported from the physician's viewpoint, not the patient's. Furthermore, no standardized guidelines for the treatment of sulcus vocalis have been established...

GOAL: Dysphonia is more prevalent in teachers than among the general population. The objective of this study was to analyze clinical, vocal, and videolaryngoscopical aspects in dysphonic teachers. METHODS: Ninety dysphonic teachers were inquired about their voice, comorbidities, and work conditions. They underwent vocal auditory-perceptual evaluation (maximum phonation time and GRBASI scale), acoustic voice analysis, and videolaryngoscopy. The results were compared with a control group consisting of 90 dysphonic nonteachers, of similar gender and ages, and with professional activities excluding teaching and singing...

INTRODUCTION: Minor structural alterations of the vocal fold cover are frequent causes of voice abnormalities. They may be difficult to diagnose, and are expressed in different manners. Cases of intracordal cysts, sulcus vocalis, mucosal bridge, and laryngeal micro-diaphragm form the group of minor structural alterations of the vocal fold cover investigated in the present study. The etiopathogenesis and epidemiology of these alterations are poorly known. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the existence and anatomical characterization of minor structural alterations in the vocal folds of newborns...
