Synthetic Vocal Cords [video]

Synthetic vocal cords being under development at MIT and Harvard... Very good video!

What are some of the vocal cord problems that may benefit from such a synthetic gel? Vocal cord paralysis, vocal cord surgery to address polyps, cysts, nodules, granulomas, etc.

As an FYI... the synthetic vocal cord gel portrayed in the video is still under development and not available for patient use yet...
