Various materials such as autogenous cartilage, silicone, hydroxylapatite, Gore-tex (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene), and titanium have been used for medialization laryngoplasty. We report an extrusion of Gore-tex implant after 11 months of medialization laryngoplasty. We believe tha t thought Gore-tex is a safe and easy-to-use implant for medialization laryngoplasty, the possibility of extrusion after the operation must not be ignored.
