The vocal folds are subjected to some of the largest magnitudes and frequencies of deformation of any tissue in the human body during normal voice production. Vocal fold scarring creates a functional deficit in this highly specific tissue that compromises the integrity of an individual’s voice. Scarring is the leading cause of dysphonia which often leads to a decreased quality of life, especially to those whose voice is an integral part of their profession.
