Objective: Vocal cord polyps are benign lesions of the larynx that are frequently seen and are treated surgically. These lesions generally develop in the free edge of the vocal cords, and form an incomplete glottal closure accompanied by irregular vibration of the vocal cords. In this study, the aim is to investigate the effect of surgery on vocal cord vibration in patients with vocal cord polyps who are treated with the endolaryngeal cold knife microsurgery.
