Laryngeal papillomatosis/ recurrent respiratory papillomatosis
Vocal fold paralysis / reduced mobility of the vocal folds
Unilateral vocal fold paralysis or reduced mobility of the vocal folds often leads to a hoarse voice that quickly tires. The interventional therapy options for unilateral vocal cord paralysis are injection glottoplasty, non-selective laryngeal reinnervation, thyroplasty and laryngoplasty. In the case of bilateral vocal fold paralysis, the main issues are breathing problems and reduced physical resilience.
Vocal fold weakness / vocalis muscle hypotrophy
Voice and transgender
In the case of trans identity, there is sometimes considerable psychological strain due to a voice that does not match the desired gender identity. In addition to voice exercise therapy, phonosurgical therapy options are also available, especially for male-to-female trans identities. For more information on the transgender voice click here.
