A disordered voice can affect an individual across both work and non–work-related life domains.
There is insufficient research testing on the effect of spasmodic dysphonia or its treatment with botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) injections on work productivity.
We assess whether employed patients with spasmodic dysphonia experience voice-related work productivity impairment before BoNT injection, and had a 10% or greater improvement in productivity 1 month after treatment with BoNT injection.
This prospective case series carried out in 2 laryngology outpatient clinics from November 1, 2015, to August 30, 2018 included a consecutive sample of adult employed patients diagnosed with spasmodic dysphonia.
Analysis was conducted between November 1, 2015, to July 31, 2018.
