Abstract

Laryngoplasty was performed using the perichondrium of the thyroid cartilage or a sternohyoid muscle flap. Techniques and results are described using this method, applied for glottic reconstruction after vertical partial laryngectomy of the frontolateral type and after cordectomy. Anatomic and functional results in 15 cases are described, ultrasound imaging showing in all cases an improvement in basic laryngeal function, and in the timbre and strength of the voice.
