Laryngeal cleft type I: a novel method of repair using Bioplastique™

  • S. Ahluwalia (a1), D. Pothier (a1), J. Philpott (a1), P. Sengupta (a1) and A. Frosh (a1)...


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.
