Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The authors report a novel treatment of a case of type I laryngeal cleft diagnosed in an adult. They describe a technique of endoscopic obliteration of the posterior commissure defect. Initially, a test implant of starch and adrenaline was used, followed by permanent staged injections of Bioplastique to the posterior commissure. This rare congenital anomaly usually presents in childhood but late presentation should be considered when adults present with lifelong dysphonia especially when associated with gastro-oesophageal reflux disease.
