|Abstract:||Mechanical models of the human larynx have been used to validate mathematical vocal cord models, but most lack the applicability for ex-vivo surgical experiments. To our best knowledge, no technical evaluation has been reported using mechanical models to study vocal cord wound closure techniques. We design and develop a customizable and versatile mechanical hemilarynx with direct simulation of vocal cord vibration and airflow that can facilitate ex-vivo surgical experiments on the vocal cord. This setup enables experimental validation on the mechanical stability of novel devices, which are currently developed for epithelial wound closure in microlaryngeal surgery.|
