Thyroplasty

Type I thyroplasty is a form of medialization laryngoplasty, which is used to improve laryngeal competence and voice quality in patients with unilateral adductor vocal cord paralysis. In 1805 Manuel Garcia, famous opera singer invented indirect laryngoscopy by using a dental mirror as a basic tool for visualising vocal folds by otolaryngologists.In medialisation laryngoplasty, a window is cut in the thyroid lamina in the neck on the paralysed side and the piece of thyroid cartilage is depressed inward towards the midline until the normal cord touches the paralysed cord, thus closing the glottic gap resulting in normal voice.
