Implantation of Porous Titanium Prosthesis in Laryngeal Surgery

2014-08-26 22:49:11 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study evaluates a medialization implant to treat vocal cord paralysis, to permit it to adjust the quality of the voice under local or general anesthesia. The aim is to restore phonation using a porous titanium prosthesis in laryngeal surgery.
