AB  - OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: The aim of this study was to understand current protocols 
      for voice rest implemented by laryngologists immediately after phonomicrosurgery 
      for benign vocal fold lesions. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey. METHODS: A
      24-item survey was sent via electronic mail to laryngologists across the country 
      to gather data on their recommendations of type and dosage of voice rest, factors
      involved in this decision, and recommendations for other behavioral
      modifications. RESULTS: A majority of the laryngologists implement 7 days of
      complete voice rest for nodules, cysts, polyps, and Reinke's edema, 1 to 4 days
      for leukoplakia and papilloma, and over 8 days of relative voice rest for most
      lesions. A majority of the laryngologists also employ a combination of complete
      and relative voice rest. CONCLUSIONS: The more common recommendation for complete
      voice rest is 7 days for nodules, cysts, polyps, and Reinke's edema, and 1 to 4
      days for leukoplakia and papilloma. Relative voice rest when recommended is
      typically recommended for over 8 days. Voice rest recommendations were not
      affected by surgery type alone, but were determined by either lesion type alone
      or lesion type combined with surgery type. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: 4. Laryngoscope,
