Measuring Vocal Fatigability in Teachers: The Vocal Fatigability Scale for Teachers (VFS-T)
Journal of Voice
by Silvia Contreras-Regatero, Josep Vila-Rovira
1w ago
This study focuses on the distinction between vocal fatigability and vocal fatigue (VF), highlighting the importance of vocal fatigability when assessing teachers' quality of life. Vocal fatigability is more critical for quality of life than performance or perceived VF because it considers the accumulation and chronicity of fatigue over isolated tasks. The objectives are to develop and validate the Vocal Fatigability Scale for Teachers (VFS-T), to assess teachers' levels of vocal fatigability, and to analyze variations based on personal and occupational traits ..read more

Fenestration Approach for Arytenoid Adduction in Unilateral Vocal Fold Paralysis
Journal of Voice
by Ray Motohashi, Ryoji Tokashiki, Eriko Sakurai, Yu Saito, Yusuke Shoji, Kiyoaki Tsukahara
1w ago
Several surgical techniques have been reported for the treatment of unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP). Although the fenestration approach has recently been applied for arytenoid adduction (AA) in some cases, long-term large-cohort studies on its usefulness are lacking. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the long-term voice outcomes of this technique in patients with UVFP ..read more

Patient-Reported Outcomes after False Vocal Folds Injections for Adductor Spasmodic Dysphonia
Journal of Voice
by Deirdre Larsen, Michael Olejniczak, Yann P. Kerevel, Lacey Adkins, Andrew J. McWhorter, Melda Kunduk
1w ago
The primary objective of this study is to investigate if false vocal folds (FVF) or simultaneous FVF with thyroarytenoid (FVF+TA) Botox® injections achieve comparable treatment effects to standard TA injections. This study also aims to determine how patient-reported outcomes contribute to the transition to, and continuation of, FVF or FVF+TA injections ..read more

Automatic Voice Disorder Detection from a Practical Perspective
Journal of Voice
by Jazmin Vidal, Dayana Ribas, Cyntia Bonomi, Eduardo Lleida, Luciana Ferrer, Alfonso Ortega
2w ago
Voice disorders, such as dysphonia, are common among the general population. These pathologies often remain untreated until they reach a high level of severity. Assisting the detection of voice disorders could facilitate early diagnosis and subsequent treatment. In this study, we address the practical aspects of automatic voice disorders detection (AVDD). In real-world scenarios, data annotated for voice disorders is usually scarce due to various challenges involved in the collection and annotation of such data ..read more
