The Shaking Palsy of the Larynx-Potential Biomarker for Multiple System Atrophy: A Pilot Study and Literature Review.

Front Neurol 2019 26;10:241. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Hospital for Movement Disorders/Parkinson's Disease, Beelitz-Heilstätten, Germany.

In its early stages multiple system atrophy (MSA), a neurodegenerative movement disorder, can be difficult to differentiate from idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD), and emphasis has been put on identifying premotor symptoms to allow for its early identification. The occurrence of vegetative symptoms in addition to motor impairment, such as orthostatic hypotension and neurogenic bladder dysfunction, enable the clinical diagnosis in the advanced stages of the disease. Usually with further disease progression, laryngeal abnormalities become clinically evident and can manifest in laryngeal stridor due to impaired vocal fold motion, such as vocal fold abduction restriction, mostly referred to as vocal fold paresis, or paradoxical vocal fold adduction during inspiration.

Arytenoid Fixation in Laryngeal Cancer: Radiological Pictures and Clinical Correlations with Respect to Conservative Treatments.

Cancers (Basel) 2019 Mar 13;11(3). Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Head and Neck Oncology Service, Candiolo Cancer Institute-FPO IRCCS, 10060 Candiolo (TO), Italy.

The aim of this retrospective study was to identify different radiological features in intermediate⁻advanced laryngeal cancer (LC) associated with arytenoid fixation, in order to differentiate cases still safely amenable to conservative treatment by partial laryngectomy or chemoradiotherapy. : 29 consecutive patients who underwent open partial horizontal laryngectomies (OPHLs), induction chemotherapy followed by radiotherapy in the case of >50% response (IC + RT) or total laryngectomy were classified as: pattern I (supraglottic LC fixing the arytenoid due to weight effect), pattern II (glottic LC involving the posterior paraglottic space and spreading toward the crico-arytenoid joint and infraglottic extension <10 mm), pattern III (glottic-infraglottic LC involving the crico-arytenoid joint and infraglottic extension >10 mm) and pattern IV (transglottic and infraglottic LC with massive crico-arytenoid unit involvement, reaching the hypopharyngeal submucosa). All glottic cancers treated with surgery were studied by a cross sectional approach. Read More

Prediction of Posterior Paraglottic Space and Cricoarytenoid Unit Involvement in Endoscopically T3 Glottic Cancer with Arytenoid Fixation by Magnetic Resonance with Surface Coils.

Cancers (Basel) 2019 Jan 10;11(1). Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Maxillofacial, and Thyroid Surgery, Fondazione IRCCS, Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori di Milano, University of Milan, 20133 Milan, Italy.

Discrimination of the etiology of arytenoid fixation in cT3 laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is crucial for treatment planning. The aim of this retrospective study was to differentiate among possible causes of arytenoid fixation (edema, inflammation, mass effect, or tumor invasion) by analyzing related signal patterns of magnetic resonance (MR) in the posterior laryngeal compartment (PLC) and crico-arytenoid unit (CAU). Seventeen patients affected by cT3 glottic SCC with arytenoid fixation were preoperatively studied by state-of-the-art MR with surface coils. Read More

Department of Head and Neck Surgery, Miyagi Cancer Center, Natori, Miyagi, Japan.

For locally advanced laryngeal cancers, the standard treatment of choice is chemoradiotherapy if organ function needs to be conserved. Surgical treatment with larynx preservation is conducted only for limited cases. For locally advanced laryngeal cancers such as those with vocal cord fixation and/or cricoid cartilage destruction, there is no apparent standardized organ-preserving surgery keeping the essential laryngeal functions, viz.

Vocal function after transoral videolaryngoscopic surgery (TOVS) for hypopharyngeal and supraglottic cancer.

Acta Otolaryngol 2017 Apr 15;137(4):403-410. Epub 2016 Dec 15.

a Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery , National Defense Medical College , Saitama , Japan.

Conclusion: The resection of the medial and lateral pyriform sinus was associated with post-operative voice impairment after TOVS. Scar contracture around the cricoarytenoid joint lead to arytenoid fixation toward lateral position, and this wound healing process caused insufficient glottis closure. Although oncological and functional outcomes of TOVS was satisfactory, surgeons should mention the risk of post-operative voice impairment in pre-operative counseling. Read More

Total fixation of cricoarytenoid joint of a patient with rheumatoid arthritis and Hashimoto thyroiditis.

Srp Arh Celok Lek 2010 Mar-Apr;138(3-4):230-2

Otorhinolaryngological Clinic, Clinical Centre Kragujevac, Kragujevac, Serbia.

Introduction: The incidence of cricoarytenoid joint fixation in case of rheumatoid arthritis is 17 to 33%. In later stages of rheumatoid arthritis, a gradual fixation of cricoarytenoid joint develops and both halves of the larynx become less movable which calls for endotracheal intubation; while total fixation of this joint demands surgical tracheotomy. Hashimoto thyroiditis can display symptoms which are difficult to distinguish from the ones present in total fixation of cricoarytenoid joint caused by rheumatoid arthritis. Read More

Management of bilateral arytenoid cartilage fixation versus recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2003 Feb;112(2):103-8

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, University of Cologne Medical School, Cologne, Germany.

Bilateral arytenoid cartilage fixation (ACF) closely resembles vocal cord immobility due to recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis (RLNP). This study sought to determine the etiologic differences between these two entities and to derive conclusions about treatment. The charts of 218 consecutive adult patients with immobility of both vocal cords requiring surgery for airway restoration were reviewed. Read More

Progress in laryngeal framework surgery.

Authors:
N Isshiki

Acta Otolaryngol 2000 Mar;120(2):120-7

Kyoto University, Isshiki Clinic, Japan.

This paper reviews progress in laryngeal framework surgery since it was first reported about 25 years ago. The success of this type of surgery requires both a basic knowledge of the physiology of phonation, in order to make decisions about the surgical procedure, and surgical skill, in order to accomplish the intended procedure successfully. The main reason for hoarseness is imperfect closure of the glottis, but the second most important reason for hoarseness, increased stiffness of the vocal fold, cannot be corrected by mere medialization of the vocal fold.

The role of partial laryngeal resection in current management of laryngeal cancer: a collective review.

Acta Otolaryngol 2000 Jun;120(4):456-65

Department of Otolaryngology--Head and Neck Surgery, University of Udine, Italy.

A spectrum of treatment plans and surgical procedures is available for management of early and moderately advanced laryngeal cancer. While the approach of chemotherapy and irradiation, or irradiation alone, followed by total laryngectomy for failure is often employed in practice by present day clinicians, the options of conventional conservation surgery (CCS), transoral endoscopic laser surgery (TLS) and supracricoid partial laryngectomy (SCPL) provide a wide choice of treatments that may help attain the goal of cure with preservation of laryngeal function and integrity of the airway. While CCS has been supplanted for many early-stage lesions by TLS and for more advanced stages by SCPL, centres throughout the world have reported favourable results with CCS, which is often modified to include resection of more extensive tumours than was previously possible.

Submucosal arytenoidectomy: new surgical technique and review of the literature.

J Otolaryngol 2000 Feb;29(1):13-6

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Rambam Medical Center, Haifa, Israel.

Objective: Arytenoidectomy is indicated in cases of bilateral median vocal cord paralysis (most commonly due to recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis), ankylosis of the cricoarytenoid joint due to arthritis, and tumours of the arytenoid cartilage. We propose the use of the submucosal approach, to excise the arytenoid cartilage in cases of vocal cord paralysis. We present the surgical technique and review the history and relevant literature, as well as the pros and cons of various surgical techniques for arytenoidectomy. Read More

Evaluation and management of bilateral vocal cord immobility.

Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 1999 Dec;121(6):760-5

University of Washington, Seattle 98195, USA.

Bilateral vocal cord immobility can be life threatening for some patients. Others, who have an open glottic chink, may have a breathy dysphonia, intermittent dyspnea, and stridor. These signs and symptoms may also be found in a number of other conditions that cause weakness or paradoxical motion of the vocal cords that mimics paralysis. Read More
