    [The role of laryngeal electromyography in the diagnosis of vocal cord movement disorders].

    Orv Hetil 2018 Feb;159(8):303-311
    Fül-Orr-Gégészeti és Fej-Nyaksebészeti Klinika, Szegedi Tudományegyetem, Általános Orvostudományi Kar Szeged, Tisza Lajos krt. 111., 6725.
    The development of the therapeutic possibilities of vocal cord immobility necessitated the parallel renewal of diagnostic methods. In the last years, laryngeal electromyography, which was first introduced more than 70 years ago, has been re-discovered. After reviewing the international literature and their own experience, the authors present the indications, technical requirements, method and, particularly, the evaluation of the results of this procedure. Laryngeal electromyography makes the differentiation between mechanical fixation and immobility with neurological origin of the vocal folds possible. In case of laryngeal paralysis/paresis it also evaluates objectively the severity of neural injury, the prognosis of the disease and the necessity of any glottis-widening procedure. The widespread application of dynamic rehabilitation interventions is not conceivable without the routine application of laryngeal electromyography, so this sensitive diagnostic tool has to be introduced in all laryngological centers.

    Background: Several pathologies can involve muscles that control vocal folds. The abnormality can affect peripheral nerves or central nervous system centers. Clinically, muscle function can be assessed by observing the movement of structures themselves or by recording electrical activity of these muscles using (electromyography-EMG). Read More

    One of the most common complications of surgery of the thyroid gland is vocal folds immobility. New advances in its management have been achieved over the last few years. Laryngeal electromyography, stroboscopy, and computerized analysis of the voice help guide diagnosis, allowing differentiation between recurrent nerve paralysis and glottis traumatism due to intubation, and further follow-up of recovery with relevant therapeutic decisions.
