Objectives: To determine whether laryngeal electromyography (LEMG) can predict recurrent laryngeal nerve function return in children and whether LEMG can aid in the management of vocal fold immobility (VFI).
Design: Prospective case series.
Setting: Tertiary pediatric aerodigestive centers. Read More

The clinical use of the laryngeal electromyography is still scanty; nevertheless, in our experience it has been shown to be an efficient and objective test in the study of the neurological disorders of the larynx and in the prognosis of recovery after vocal cord paralysis. We have performed conventional electromyography of the thyroarytenoid and cricothyroid muscles in 25 patients with laryngoscopically--confirmed vocal cord paralysis of different etiology. Positive sharp waves, fibrillation potentials and decreased or absent activity on maximal voluntary effort provided enough evidence of denervation in those cases of neurogenic origin. Read More

Laryngeal Electromyography (LEMG) is a diagnostic test commonly used in patients with vocal fold movement disorder. The aim of this study is to describe LEMG in patients with vocal fold immobility. A total of 55 dysphonic patients with vocal fold immobility diagnosed by laryngeal endoscopy were grouped according to probable clinical cause: 1) unknown; 2) traumatic; or 3) tumoral compression.

Objectives: To study the diagnostic and prognostic contribution of laryngeal electromyography in unilateral vocal-fold immobility in adults.
Material And Methods: A retrospective study included patients with unilateral vocal-fold immobility undergoing laryngeal electromyography between 2007 and 2015. Neurogenic, normal or myogenic findings were compared to the clinical aspect. Read More
