Objective: To assess the role of stroboscopy in the diagnosis of vocal cord lesions. Study Design: Prospective interventional study. Setting: Academic tertiary caremedical centre. Materials and Methods: 50 patients with complaints of hoarsenessof voice were clinically evaluated and diagnosis was made using Rigid Videolaryngoscopy,Flexible Videolaryngoscopy and Videostroboscopy. Patients underwentmicrolaryngeal surgery and a final diagnosis made with histopathological examination.The intra-operative findings and the final histopathological diagnosis werecompared with the diagnosis made with rigid, flexible videolaryngoscopy and stroboscopy. Results: Intra-operative findings correlated with stroboscopic findings in84% of patients, with fibreopticlaryngo-pharyngoscopic diagnosis in 54% of patientsand with rigid video-laryngoscopy in 46% of patients. Videostroboscopy showed thehighest diagnostic co-relation on histopathology 80% as compared to rigid videoendoscopy56% and flexible videolaryngoscopy 58%. Videostroboscopy also elucidatedvocal fold abnormalities that were missed on rigid or flexible laryngoscopicexaminations. Conclusion: Videostroboscopy is a valuable complement to a thoroughvocal history and physical examination. Videostroboscopy is superior to constantlight laryngeal examination in diagnosis of vocal cord lesions.
