Abstract

This study suggests that arytenoid adduction with suture attachment along the longitudinal axis of the lateral cricoarytenoid muscle to the cricoid cartilage is more physiologic and effective than that attaching the suture to the thyroid ala. A paramedian approach to arytenoid adduction with or without strap muscle transposition is a safe and effective method for treatment of unilateral paralytic dysphonia.
