Abstract: 

INTRODUCTION: THE VOCAL NODULE IS ONE OF THE MOST PREVALENT AND KNOWN TYPES OF VOICE DISORDERS THAT IS DIAGNOSED BY LARYNGOLOGISTS. THE AIM OF THIS STUDY WAS INVESTIGATING THE EFFECTS OF VOICE THERAPY ON LARYNGEAL STROBOSCOPIC FEATURES IN PATIENTS WITH VOCAL NODULE.
METHODS: THIS STUDY IS AN INTERVENTIONAL STUDY OR CLINICAL TRIAL. FIVE WOMEN WITH VOCAL NODULES BETWEEN 14 AND 45 YEARS OLD PARTICIPATED IN A VOICE THERAPY PROGRAM. STROBOSCOPIC FEATURES IN THE FIRST AND THE NINTH SESSIONS WERE ASSESSED.
RESULTS: 1. AFTER VOICE THERAPY, GLOTTAL CLOSURE IN THREE SUBJECTS REACHED/ALMOST REACHED COMPLETE CLOSURE. 2. AFTER VOICE THERAPY, SYMMETRY OF PHASES IN THREE SUBJECTS REACHED/ALMOST REACHED SYMMETRICAL PHASES. 3. AFTER VOICE THERAPY, PERIODICITY OF PHASES IN ONE SUBJECT REACHED PERIODICAL PHASES. 4. AFTER VOICE THERAPY, RIGHT MUCOSAL WAVE IN FOUR SUBJECTS REACHED NORMAL WAVES. - AFTER VOICE THERAPY, LEFT MUCOSAL WAVE IN ONE SUBJECT REACHED NORMAL AND IN ONE SUBJECT APPROACHED NORMAL WAVES. 5. ACCORDING TO LARYNGOLOGISTS’ CLINICAL JUDGMENT, PATIENTS HAD IMPROVED BETWEEN 70 AND 100%.
CONCLUSION: IN THIS STUDY, AFTER VOICE THERAPY IN ALL SUBJECTS, AT LEAST ONE STROBOSCOPIC VARIABLE HEALED. PERCEPTUAL ASSESSMENT OF PATIENTS’ VOICE BY VOICE THERAPIST, LARYNGOLOGIST, AND PATIENTS THEMSELVES IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF CLINICAL EVALUATION THAT SHOULD BE PERFORMED. VOCAL HYGIENE AND VOICE THERAPY APPROACHES WERE EFFECTIVE IN THE TREATMENT OF THE PATIENTS.
