Neocord formation after Type III cordectomy is insufficient for complete glottic closure due to scarring and soft tissue deficit. This study evaluates the role of autologous fat injection (AFI) in phonosurgical management of patients who have previously undergone Type III cordectomy for early glottic cancer. Data was collected from hospital records of patients who underwent AFI after previously undergoing Type III cordectomy. A minimum duration of 6 months post-cordectomy was maintained before fat injection. Trans-oral injection was performed at a single site. Pre-operative voice evaluation was done using VHI, GRBAS scale and MDVP software. Post-operative evaluation was done at 6 weeks. 21 out of 62 post-Type III cordectomy patients chose to undergo fat augmentation and were included in the study. A comparison of pre-operative and 6 months post-operative AFI voice analysis showed a significant improvement in VHI, all parameters of GRBAS scale, and improvement in Jitter, Shimmer, SPI and NHR. There was a decrease in fundamental frequency but this was not statistically significant. AFI is an effective procedure for surgical voice rehabilitation of patients who have undergone Type III cordectomy for early laryngeal cancer.

Syndromes which feature DYSKINESIAS as a cardinal manifestation of the disease process. Included in this category are degenerative, hereditary, post-infectious, medication-induced, post-inflammatory, and post-traumatic conditions.
Test for cell-mediated antitumor immunity and related serum blocking factors based on the finding that leukocytes from cancer patients, but not from controls, when mixed in vitro with antigenic extracts of tumors of the same histological type, undergo a diminution in their normal adherence to glass surfaces. Sera from tumor-bearing patients block the LAI reaction of their own leukocytes or those of other patients with the same type of tumor.
Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
