Case description

In this video we can see the appearance of rima glottidis 6 months after transmuscular CO2-laser cordectomy, which was performed because of the early stage (TI) left vocal fold cancer. There is no evidence of residual or early recurrence of tumour. Because of a presence of a big gap allowing air to leak upon the phonation the patient has a hoarse voice (breathy). In this case the voice is not compensated by the false vocal folds. To improve the voice with close follow-up care the phonosurgery can be considered, given provided no recurrence present.
