Procedure Kit/Trays, Thyroplasty

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for performing a surgical perforation through a natural fold of the neck (i.e., a thyroplasty surgery) that are designed to improve the voice quality by altering the position of a paralyzed vocal cord. Items in these kits usually include hooks, elevators, implant inserters, window calipers, and a set of thyroplasty implants of several sizes usually in male and female versions. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Thyroplasty kits and trays are used for the location of the thyroplasty window, creation of the window, and insertion of the implant. An additional set of sizers allow to determine the appropriate implant size.
