About Video

Here the author has demonstrated a type III thyroplasty, which is usually performed for patients suffering from puberphonia, which fails to respond to voice therapy. It can also be performed as a part of gender-reassignment procedures (female to male). The procedure involves making a vertical paramedian incision on both the thyroid alae enabling retrusion of the freed median segment so as to reduce the tension of the vocal folds as well as the pitch of the voice.
