The benefits of this new material, as demonstrated in animal studies and preliminary studies in man, could provide the answer to problems encountered by surgeons in the field of phonatory implants. This novel application is a step towards resolving the very real problems which still exist in the field today. The functional concept, which will allow better control over integrating implants in tissue, should also, it is hoped, favour cellular colonization, thereby fulfilling a currently unmet medical need. The aim is to avoid well-identified potential complications linked to the use of silicone-only implants (with or without a surface coating), like leakage around the prosthesis (by cellular colonization), and so reduce the risk of protrusion/extrusion of the prosthesis as far as possible, and to avoid trauma to the peri-prosthetic tissues by repeated interventions

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Total or partial excision of the larynx.

Pathological processes that affect voice production, usually involving VOCAL CORDS and the LARYNGEAL MUCOSA. Voice disorders can be caused by organic (anatomical), or functional (emotional or psychological) factors leading to DYSPHONIA; APHONIA; and defects in VOICE QUALITY, loudness, and pitch.

That component of SPEECH which gives the primary distinction to a given speaker's VOICE when pitch and loudness are excluded. It involves both phonatory and resonatory characteristics. Some of the descriptions of voice quality are harshness, breathiness and nasality.

Tumors or cancer of the PHARYNX.

A variety of techniques used to help individuals utilize their voice for various purposes and with minimal use of muscle energy.
