Demographic and videostroboscopic assessment of vocal pathologies

, : Demographic and videostroboscopic assessment of vocal pathologies. Indian Journal of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery 64(2): 150-157

Successful treatment of bilateral vocal fold lesions depends on the accuracy of the diagnosis. The application of stroboscopy to the study of vocal fold vibration has led to dramatic advances in the understanding of vocal fold physiology. Laryngeal stroboscopy is the state of the art diagnostic tool and this technique provides valuable information about the nature of the vibration and a visual image that can be used both for immediate analysis and as a permanent record for comparison of repeated examination at a later date. In this study we are presenting demographic analysis and videostroboscopic assessment in 112 cases of different vocal pathologies. Stroboscopic parameters like glottic closure, amplitude, vocal fold edge, symmetry, periodicity and mucosal wave pattern were studied and statistically significant relationship with different vocal pathologies were obtained.
