Vocal fold hemorrhage, an injury from voice use common in performers, is widely regarded to have serious long-term consequences to voice quality and constitute a threat to career. This study follows up 41 patients who have had one or more vocal fold hemorrhages for an average of 3.5 years, and shows that the long-term consequences to voice function and performance are no different than in similar patients who have never had a hemorrhage.
