- Vocal exercise may attenuate acute vocal fold inflammationKatherine Verdolini Abbott
Department of Communication Science and Disorders, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
J Voice 26:814.e1-13. 2012..The hypothesis was that relatively large-amplitude, low-impact vocal fold exercises associated with RV would reduce inflammation more than spontaneous speech (SS) and possibly more than voice rest...
- Biological mechanisms underlying voice changes due to dehydrationKatherine Verdolini
School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, University of Pittsburgh, PA 15260, USA
J Speech Lang Hear Res 45:268-81. 2002..In contrast, no evidence was seen that DH accomplished either secretory dehydration or PTP shifts. The results indicate that systemic dehydration can mediate PTP increases. The influence of secretory dehydration on PTP is unclear...

Department of Otolaryngology and University of Pittsburgh Voice Center, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 113:23-9. 2004..Although still in its infancy, such analysis may ultimately hold scientific and clinical utility in the study and management of patients with vocal fold disease...
- Biochemical markers associated with acute vocal fold wound healing: a rabbit modelRyan C Branski
Department of Communication Science and Disorders, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA
J Voice 19:283-9. 2005....
- A patient-specific in silico model of inflammation and healing tested in acute vocal fold injuryNicole Y K Li
Department of Communication Science and Disorders, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States of America
PLoS ONE 3:e2789. 2008..We propose that this translational application of computational modeling could be used to design patient-specific therapies for the larynx, and will serve as a paradigm for future extension to other clinical domains...
- Acute vocal fold wound healing in a rabbit modelRyan C Branski
Department of Communication Science and Disorders the University of Pittsburgh Voice Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 114:19-24. 2005..Manipulation and/or alteration of naturally occurring neo-matrix deposition and organization may yield improved biophysical function of the injured vocal fold...
- Shifts in biochemical markers associated with wound healing in laryngeal secretions following phonotrauma: a preliminary studyKatherine Verdolini
Department of Otolaryngology, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 112:1021-5. 2003..The upward slope of the curves at the 20-minute time interval indicates the need for longer follow-up sampling to determine the full biological response of the vocal folds to acute phonotrauma...
- Double-blind study on the effects of topical anesthesia on laryngeal secretionsJoy Walsh
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Voice Speech Swallowing Service, Rehabilitation Services Department, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
J Voice 20:282-90. 2006..Speculation is entertained regarding possible physiological pathways for these incidental findings, which could be relevant for some clinical practice...
- Vocal fold wound healing: a review for cliniciansRyan C Branski
Department of Head and Neck Surgery, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY 10021, USA
J Voice 20:432-42. 2006..The current review seeks to provide a foundation of basic wound healing science and present the most current data regarding the wound healing process in the vocal folds...
- Biophysiological Mechanisms of 'Heightened Speech'Katherine Verdolini; Fiscal Year: 2007..The primary dependent variable is quality of life in relation to voice, measured with the Voice Handicap Index. Secondary variables are aerodynamic, laryngeal, and vocal quality measures. [unreadable] [unreadable]..
