Accompanied by speech samples on two audio compact disks, this book is an invaluable resource for professionals and students alike. Features: two free audio CDs containing speech samples; fifty-one case studies which examine the history, examination findings, diagnosis, and treatment of each patient; explores the applications of acoustic, speech aerodynamic, and videostroboscopic instrumentation in both the differential diagnoses and treatment of disorders; provides detailed, updated description of phonosurgical alternatives; and presents extensive behavioral voice therapy techniques for benign and malignant disorders incorporating the use of decision-tree diagrams and log sheets for recording and teaching patient responses to intervention. This new and innovative package is of widespread appeal to academicians, clinical supervisors, speech-language pathologist, and otolaryngologists.

Intended for a graduate text in voice pathology, this book follows the logical learning sequence, systematically developing the knowledge bases required for a thorough understanding of the subject. The evolution of treatment of voice disorders is addressed with a historical perspective that allows the student to trace how voice problems were perceived, understood, and treated through decades of advancement up to the 21st century. The text covers anatomy and physiology, etiological correlates, and pathologies of the laryngeal mechanism. To aid in learning how to work with voice disordered patients, a well-defined, goal-oriented, diagnostic voice evaluation process is included. A detailed survey of voice therapies presents five philosophical orientations and the specific therapies under each, and is supplemented by case studies which bring alive the approaches presented. Special sections address care of the professional voice and the laryngectomized population.
Voice is produced by the conversion of aerodynamic energy from exhalation to acoustical energy for voice production by the vocal folds (membranous connective tissue) located in the larynx. The quality of voice depends on the biomechanical properties of the multi-layered vocal fold tissue which derive from its extracellular matrix (ECM) organization and composition. The wound healing response to vocal fold injuries is characterized by scarring and subsequent dysphonia due to alterations in the biomechanical properties of the tissue.
