Monitoring Treatment of Vocal Fold Paralysis by Biomechanical Analysis of Voice
Research Areas
  • Processing and signal analysis
A case study of vocal fold paralysis treatment is described with the help of the voice quality analysis application BioMet®Phon. The case corresponds to a description of a 40-year old female patient who was diagnosed of vocal fold paralysis following a cardio-pulmonar intervention which required intubation for 8 days and posterior tracheotomy for 15 days. The patient presented breathy and asthenic phonation, and dysphagia. Six main examinations were conducted during a full year period that the treatment lasted consisting in periodic reviews including video-endostroboscopy, voice analysis and breathing function monitoring. The phoniatrician treatment included 20 sessions of vocal rehabilitation, followed by an intracordal infiltration with Radiesse 8 months after the rehabilitation treatment started followed by 6 sessions of rehabilitation more. The videondoscopy and the voicing quality analysis refer a substantial improvement in the vocal function with recovery in all the measures estimated (jitter, shimmer, mucosal wave contents, glottal closure, harmonic contents and biomechanical function analysis). The paper refers the procedure followed and the results obtained by comparing the longitudinal progression of the treatment, illustrating the utility of voice quality analysis tools in speech therapy.
