New Video and Audio of True Vocal Cord Swelling in a Singer
A new audio and video strobe examination of a singer with true vocal cord swelling has been posted here. This example clearly demonstrates the hourglass gap with vocal cord adduction due to the swelling as well as onset delays and pitch breaks common in this particular disorder.
Vocal cord swelling is a very common and treatable cause of hoarseness in singers and in people who just plain like to talk a lot. It is considered the first stage before formation of nodules/polyps/cysts if not treated.
