Implantation of Porous Titanium Prosthesis in Laryngeal Surgery

16:07 EDT 28th May 2015 | BioPortfolio


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.

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.
