PMID:  7611738     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In the early 1900s, glottic insufficiency in patients with vocal cord paralysis was corrected by injecting paraffin intralaryngeally. Since then, injecting absorbable gelatin powder into the vocal cord has become an acceptable short-term solution for transient paralysis of a single vocal cord. Although relatively uncommon, this procedure has few complications and is an option for patients when vocal cord function is expected to return within one year.
