  Purpose

This study evaluates a medialization implant to treat vocal cord paralysis, to permit it to adjust the quality of the voice under local or general anesthesia. The aim is to restore phonation using a porous titanium prosthesis in laryngeal surgery.


Condition Intervention Phase
Vocal Cord Paralysis
Device: Vocal fold medialization (thyroplasty) prosthesis by insertion of a new implant allowing very easy and quick setting
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Nasofibroscopy [ Time Frame: 8 days and 3 months after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Voice control and recording [ Time Frame: 8, 15, 30 days, 3, 6 months after surgery and then, every 6 months during the whole trial ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • All types of complication [ Time Frame: 8, 15, 30 days, 3, 6 months after surgery and then, every 6 months during the whole trial ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 10
Study Start Date: December 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: Vocal fold medialization (thyroplasty) prosthesis by insertion of a new implant allowing very easy and quick setting
    The porous titanium prosthesis is implanted under local anaesthesia. Neck incision is performed in order to expose the thyroidal cartilage. A window is then opened in this cartilage, and the implant is placed in contact with the vocal muscles. The patient is then asked to speak in order to achieve the implant best setting.
