Implantation of Porous Titanium Prosthesis in Laryngeal Surgery
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.

This phase I single center open labeled study is planned to assess the safety and tolerability of bevacizumab for treating patients with bilateral RRP. Approximately 20 patients will recei...
This trial will study the reconstruction of the anterior part of the mandible and the adjacent soft tissue parts by a mandibular prosthesis made in porous titanium, associated or not, to a...
The purpose of this study is to see how the brain re-learns to control the larynx in speaking and swallowing when undergoing surgical rehabilitation in the form of either thyroplasty or vo...
The purpose the study is to determine the genetic causes of specific voice disorders that run in families. Researchers are particularly interested in two conditions; 1. Spasmodic dysph...
Small vascular malformations (SVM) on the vocal fold is a common problem that can disturb the voice. The pulsed dye laser (PDL) has been successfully used for treatment of blood vessel abn...
We report the case of a 54-year-old woman who presented for evaluation of deterioration in her voice and swallowing function, which had begun after she had undergone a medialization laryngoplasty for ...
An animal vocal fold replacement model is needed to investigate treatments for vocal fold scarring. We developed a rabbit surgical model, hypothesizing that orthotopic vocal fold cover implants would ...
To compare voice outcomes after vocal fold augmentation using a trial (temporary) vocal fold injection (VFI) versus long-term augmentation in patients diagnosed with vocal fold atrophy.
Sophisticated descriptions of the highly specialized vocal fold microarchitecture have been available for over three decades, but how this anatomy evolves with growth and aging remains an area of acti...
It is generally accepted that tensile and compressive strains have direct effects on cell morphology and structure, including changes in cytoskeletal structure and organization. Cytoskeletons play the...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Insertion of an implant into the bone of the mandible or maxilla. The implant has an exposed head which protrudes through the mucosa and is a prosthodontic abutment.
Surgical insertion of a prosthesis.
A prosthesis that gains its support, stability, and retention from a substructure that is implanted under the soft tissues of the basal seat of the device and is in contact with bone. (From Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed)
Surgical insertion of an appliance for the replacement of areas of the maxilla, mandible, and face. When only portions of the mandible are replaced, it is referred to as MANDIBULAR PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION.
Surgical insertion of an implant to replace one or more of the ear ossicles.
