Role of Voice Rest on Voice Outcomes Following Phonosurgery

Study Description

The Role of Voice Rest on Voice Outcomes Following Phonosurgery

Patients undergoing vocal cord surgery (phonosurgery) are often prescribed voice rest postoperatively. However, no clinical trials have ever been conducted to ascertain the efficacy of using voice rest and its impact on functional voice outcomes. The purpose of this randomized-clinical trial is to determine if the prescription of voice rest has an impact on voice outcomes following phonosurgery.
