Abstract

Medialization laryngoplasty has become a widely accepted surgical treatment for rehabilitation of unilateral vocal fold paralysis, paresis, and vocal fold bowing. Revision laryngoplasty is often challenging. The most common reasons for performing revision are improper procedure selection and implant-related problems such as malposition, undercorrection, and overcorrection. Understanding the reasons why revisions are necessary may help laryngoplastic phonosurgeons avoid some of the intrinsic pitfalls and technical problems and thus improve surgical outcomes.
