Oscar Wilde used to say that “education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.” Even if we are far away from Oscar Wilde’s wisdom, we would like to transfer to our colleagues something that may be worth knowing in laryngology. Injection laryngoplasty is certainly a really small niche in ENT but nonetheless an interesting and valuable argument in which didactic material is lacking. This book aims to examine the most important features of injection laryngoplasty techniques, ranging from anatomo-physiological considerations and the principal causes of glottic and neoglottic insuffi ciency that may require a laryngoplasty to technique considerations. Injection laryngoplasty is considered in all its possibilities: by means of microlaryngoscopy, transcutaneous, and fi broscopic approach, both in adults and in pediatric population, and taking into considerations all material that can be used. ENT surgeons who deal with phonosurgery and laryngeal cancer surgery should keep in mind that injection laryngoplasty is an important weapon at their disposal that may have a relevant impact on patients’ quality of life. This book is meant to be a simple and “ready to use” manual for surgeons who want to approach injection laryngoplasty techniques for the treatment of glottic and neoglottic insuffi ciency.
