Micro laryngeal surgery2 is a common and relatively safe ENT surgery, certain laryngeal conditions require surgery for correction. Surgery for voice problems is quite uncommon, most of the voice disorders can be treated with voice therapy or medical treatment. However there are certain conditions which may require operative measures. We have been doing micro laryngeal surgery (MLS) 10, 2 in our institute for quite a long time (since decades). Research evidence regarding the efficacy of voice rest after micro-flap excision of benign vocal fold lesions is limited. This both results from and contributes to a lack of agreed-upon practice patterns regarding voice rest among physicians. Patients report decreased quality of life during voice rest. Basic science findings increasingly support vocal fold mobilization after the inflammatory phase of healing (3-5 days postoperatively). The purpose of the present study was to determine if longer durations of postoperative voice rest5 were associated with improved postsurgical outcomes.
