Spontaneous displacement of silastic prosthesis 10 years after type 1 thyroplasty: a case report

Sinan Kocatürk1, Güçlü Kaan Beriat, Cem Doğan

Implant dislocation following type 1 tyroplasty mostly
results from the effects of triggering factors in the early
postoperative period. A 42-year-old female patient who
had had tyroplasty type 1 surgery with silastic implant,
applied to our clinic with cough episodes, dyspnea
and hoarseness following an upper airway infection
10 years after the surgery. In laryngeal endoscopic
examination of the patient, white colored irregularity
on anterior left vocal cord and left band ventricule
fullness was seen. Regarding the patient’s medical
history, it was thought that the silastic prosthesis which
had been implanted in the type 1 thyroplasty surgery
might have displaced. The silastic prosthesis was
removed by means of microsurgery technique through
endolaryngeal way under general anesthesia. During
the first month follow-up of the patient, dyspnea and
hoarseness complaints were improved right away and
she had no other problems. The causes and consequences
of displacement of the prothesis which rarely
occurs, after tyroplasty type 1 have been discussed
along with the latest data in the literature.

Keywords: Complication; implant extrusion; type 1 thyroplasty.
