Successful correction of velopharyngeal stress incompetence in musicians playing wind instruments

Author(s): Ewanowski, S., Carter, W. L.

Journal/Book: Plast Reconstr Surg. 1979; 64: 662-4.

Abstract: Two professional musicians who played wind instruments developed velopharyngeal stress incompetence which prevented them from generating the high intraoral pressures required to play their instruments. In both cases, we did a V-Y pushback with a superiorly-based pharyngeal flap. At 1 1/2 and two years postoperatively, both patients remain free of velopharyngeal incompetence and are actively engaged in their musical careers.
