Summary of "Use of Individual Anatomical Variations to Customise Window Location in Montgomery Implant Thyroplasty: A Case Series Study."

Medialization thyroplasty with Montgomery implant uses sex-based criteria, which can occasionally lead to suboptimal positioning of the prosthesis. We described a surgical procedure and a set of measurement devices which can be used to customise the placement of cartilage-windows. This case series study describes the changes in the cartilage-window location compared to standard the window placement recommended by Montgomery. All the patients except one required window adjustment; in 78.9% the window was repositioned inferiorly; in 31.6% of cases it was repositioned both inferiorly and anteriorly. Individual anatomic variations beyond those related to sex can influence the location of the cartilage window in Montgomery thyroplasty.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical construction of an opening or window in the pericardium. It is often called subxiphoid pericardial window technique.

Fenestra or oval opening on the lateral wall of the vestibular labyrinth adjacent to the MIDDLE EAR. It is located above the cochlear round window and normally covered by the base of the STAPES.

Surgical reconstruction of the hearing mechanism of the middle ear, with restoration of the drum membrane to protect the round window from sound pressure, and establishment of ossicular continuity between the tympanic membrane and the oval window. (Dorland, 28th ed.)
