Vocal fold paralysis can have an important impact on a patient's quality of life. The goal of this study was to compare, in terms of vocal improvement and motility recovery, the post-vocal treatment results of our patients with unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) when treatment was started early (within 4 weeks from injury) versus intermediate (from 4 to 8 weeks) or delayed (at least 8 weeks after injury) treatment.

Abstract

Vocal fold paralysis can have an important impact on a patient's quality of life. The goal of this study was to compare, in terms of vocal improvement and motility recovery, the post-vocal treatment results of our patients with unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) when treatment was started early (within 4 weeks from injury) versus intermediate (from 4 to 8 weeks) or delayed (at least 8 weeks after injury) treatment.
