Synopsis
This book reviews phonosurgical procedures and techniques and provides details of instrumental microsurgery of benign lesions of the vocal folds, laser surgery of the larynx, laryngeal framework surgery and reinnervation of the larynx. Laryngeal injection techniques are also described. For each technique examined, the specialists identify current indications, characterize perioperative voice assessment studies, establish patient selection criteria, recommend surgical approaches and materials and suggest possible adjunctive measures for achieving optimal phonosurgical results. Emphasis is placed on accurate diagnosis, precise localization of the vocal pathology, careful patient selection, objective voice assessment and meticulous surgical technique. The book includes full colour cross-sectional illustrations, it describes the neurology of the laryngeal system and the physiology of the phonation. With the aid of nearly 200 illustrations, the contributors describe the phonosurgical anatomy of the larynx, explain the applications of objective methods for preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative voice assessment, and meticulously detail the full range of current surgical techniques for improving or restoring the voice - including instrumental microsurgery of benign lesions of the vocal folds, laser surgery of the larynx, laryngeal framework surgery, reinnervation of the larynx, and laryngeal injection techniques. For each technique, the contributors identify indications, characterize perioperative voice assessment studies, establish patient selection criteria, recommend surgical approaches and materials, and suggest appropriate adjunctive measures of achieving optimal results.
