Abstract

Injection augmentation of the vocal cords is a recognized treatment modality in patients with glottal closure deficiency caused by paresis or paralysis of the vocal cord. The treatment can improve voice quality and also quality of life. It is preferable to minimize waiting time for the procedure for patients with lung cancer and mediastinal involvement, because the one-year mortality is above 40%, as argued in this review.
