Background: Laryngeal videostroboscopy is an important noninvasive diagnostic tool in patients with dysphonia. More than 50% of patients with dysphonia have a benign laryngeal lesion on vocal fold examination. The aim of this study was to evaluate patients with benign laryngeal lesions by videostroboscopy.
Methods: This cross-sectional study was done on 159 patients with dysphonia in Amiralam Hospital in Tehran, Iran during 2006-2007. All the patients underwent stroboscopic examination of the vocal folds, including their movement. We also evaluated the patients for mucosal status, mucosal wave and patterns of glottal closure.
Results: Eighty-two patients participating in the study were female and 77 were male. Reflux laryngitis and muscle tension dysphonia were the most observed disorders in the patient population. Patients with sulcus vocalis and intracordal cysts had the worst mucosal wave patterns.
Conclusion: Laryngeal videostroboscopy is a useful tool for the diagnosis and treatment planning in patients with benign laryngeal lesions.
