We have successfully performed chondrolaryngoplasty in 6 cases. The results are satisfactory. Of the patients, five have previously undergone male to female transsexual operation and one with pseudohermaphroditism. Chondrolaryngoplasty is performed under local anesthesia. The amount of excised thyroid cartilage is 2.0 to 2.4 cm in length and 0.6 to 1.2 cm in width on each side. In 3 cases, mild hoarseness is observed postoperatively and it is very transient, lasting less than 20 days. This paper introduces the applied anatomy, operative technique and key points for a successful chondrolaryngoplasty.
