Low-cost laser cut Silastic implants for type I thyroplasty in a rabbit model

& Gary Gartling
Research in type I thyroplasty requires a method of mass-producing implants of a precise size and shape made from medical-grade, bio-tolerable materials commonly used in type I thyroplasty. We developed a process for laser-cutting large numbers of standardized implants that can be tailored to research specifications at the micrometer scale at a fraction of the cost of commercially available implants.
