Laryngoplastic phonosurgery is a new term used to describe all forms of laryngeal framework surgery to improve the voice. One of the most important new surgical techniques is medialization laryngoplasty (ML) for the correction of unilateral vocal cord paralysis. This article focuses on ML techniques, results, complications and indications; the artenoid adduction procedure (AA) is described as a complementary technique. In addition, some of the more experimental laryngoplastic procedures are reviewed.
