Neonatal Vocal Fold Paralysis.

Neoreviews 2020 May;21(5):e308-e322

Eudowood Division of Pediatric Respiratory Sciences, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD.

Vocal fold paralysis (VFP) is an important cause of respiratory and feeding compromise in infants. The causes of neonatal VFP are varied and include central nervous system disorders, birth-related trauma, mediastinal masses, iatrogenic injuries, and idiopathic cases. Bilateral VFP often presents with stridor or respiratory distress and can require rapid intervention to stabilize an adequate airway. Read More

Bilateral Selective Laryngeal Reinnervation for Bilateral Vocal Fold Paralysis in Children.

JAMA Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2020 Mar 19. Epub 2020 Mar 19.

Research Group on Ventilatory Handicap (EA 3830 GRHV), The Rouen Institute for Research and Innovation in Biomedicine, Rouen, Normandy, France.

Importance: Bilateral vocal fold paralysis (BVFP) in pediatric patients is a challenging entity with multiple causes.

The involvement of vocal cords in rheumatoid arthritis: a clinical case.

Pan Afr Med J 2019 21;34:102. Epub 2019 Oct 21.

Service of Rheumatology A, El Ayachi Hospital, University Hospital Center Ibn Sina, Rabat-Salé, Morocco.

Rheumatoid arthritis rarely involves the cricoarytenoid joint, symptoms of varying severity ranging from foreign body sensation, fullness or tension in the throat, hoarseness, odynophagia, speech or cough pain to stridor and respiratory distress during bilateral paralysis of the vocal cords. We are reporting a case of rheumatoid arthritis with bilateral involvement of the vocal cords. The diagnosis was clinically made and confirmed by endolaryngoscopy, responding to antirheumatic treatment but coming to the stage of permanent tracheotomy. Read More

Department of Otolaryngology, School of Medicine, University of Colorado, Aurora, CO, USA.

Objectives: CO laser medial transverse cordotomy is a permanent static procedure performed to achieve adequate functional airway in cases of posterior glottic stenosis and bilateral vocal fold paralysis. Although it is the preferred method to manage long-term bilateral vocal fold immobility, it is widely believed that cordotomy has the potential to cause aspiration. The minimal existing data on the effect surgical enlargement of the glottic airway on swallowing function is heterogeneous. Read More

Case of Vagal Nerve Stimulator-Induced Stridor After Anterior Cervical Diskectomy and Fusion-Induced Vocal Cord Paralysis.

World Neurosurg 2020 Feb 31;134:76-78. Epub 2019 Oct 31.

Department of Neurology, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland, USA.

Background: Vagal nerve stimulation is a generally safe adjunctive treatment for medically refractory epilepsy. Nevertheless, reports of vocal cord dysfunction during stimulation can be found in the literature. When vagal nerve stimulation-induced vocal cord dysfunction is compounded with contralateral dysfunction, such as that which can occur after anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion, serious pulmonary complications can occur.

Clinical Center for Voice Care, Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas, U.S.A.

Objective: Most type 1 thyroplasty implants and some common injectable materials are mechanically stiff. Placing them close to the supple vocal fold mucosa can potentially dampen vibration and adversely impact phonation, yet this effect has not been systematically investigated. This study aims to examine the effect of implant depth on vocal fold vibration and vocal output. Read More

Management of Vocal Fold Paralysis and Dysphagia for Neurologic Malignancies in Children.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2019 Nov 19;128(11):1019-1022. Epub 2019 Jun 19.

Department of Otolaryngology, University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Medicine, Memphis, Tennessee, USA.

Using intraoperative optical coherence tomography to image pediatric unilateral vocal fold paralysis.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Boston, MA, USA.

Objectives: Unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) impairs communication and reduces academic performance and social interactions in children. Deciding between temporary, permanent, or potentially destructive surgical interventions can be challenging, as there currently exists no reliable means of predicting vocal fold recovery or assessing the presence of vocal fold atrophy. Regarding vocal fold atrophy, optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been shown to be an appealing non-invasive alternative for accessing vocal fold structures. Read More

Routine bilateral neck exploration and four-gland dissection remains unnecessary in modern parathyroid surgery.

Laryngoscope Investig Otolaryngol 2019 Feb 28;4(1):188-192. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Augusta University Augusta Georgia.

Objective: Recent advances in preoperative imaging techniques and intraoperative parathyroid hormone (ioPTH) assays have made single-gland, minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP) the preferred treatment option for most patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT). Despite this evolution, a recommendation for bilateral neck exploration (BNE) with four-gland dissection in all patients has recently been advocated by a parathyroid surgical group. The current study compares the long-term outcomes of MIP with those of conventional BNE with four-gland dissection in patients with pHPT. Read More

Familial impairment of vocal cord mobility in childhood with clubfoot.

Clin Dysmorphol 2018 Oct;27(4):116-121

British Columbia Children's Hospital Research Institute.

We report on a family with three siblings, male and female, affected by congenital bilateral limitation of vocal cord abduction, with the additional finding of clubfeet in two. The paternal family history suggests an autosomal dominant inheritance. The siblings and father also have mild craniofacial features, which may be an expression of variability or may be unrelated.

Widening of posterior glottis through rotation of the arytenoid on its axis: Report of nine cases.

Am J Otolaryngol 2018 Sep - Oct;39(5):536-541. Epub 2018 Jun 5.

Airway Surgery Department, Fundación Valle del Lili, Cali, Colombia; Clinical Research Center, Fundación Valle del Lili, Cali, Colombia.

Introduction: Bilateral vocal folds' immobility is a challenge in laryngology. Multiple procedures have been proposed to improve breathing by statically enlarging the glottal airway, what also results in loss of voice and aspiration. We proposed a technique to enlarge the posterior glottis by rotating the arytenoids on its axis, imitating the function of the posterior cricoarytenoid muscle, with the objective of evaluating the results regarding decannulation, voice quality, and bronchoaspiration.

Lamb larynx model for training in endoscopic and CO laser-assisted surgeries for benign laryngotracheal obstructions.

Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Aug 4;275(8):2061-2069. Epub 2018 Jun 4.

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV), Bugnon 46, 1011, Lausanne, Switzerland.

Purpose: With adequate indication and meticulous execution, endoscopic procedures can efficiently treat a subset of adult and pediatric benign laryngotracheal stenosis and obstructions, but these procedures are precise and very demanding. The difference between a successful and a failed surgery, with potentially debilitating side effects, resides in small details. The learning curve is long and very few centers worldwide have a sufficient case load making adequate training difficult. Read More

[Effect of cricothyroid and thyroarytenoid muscle botulinum toxin injection on patients with dyspnea caused by bilateral recurrent laryngeal nerve paresis].

Zhonghua Er Bi Yan Hou Tou Jing Wai Ke Za Zhi 2018 May;53(5):375-380

Department of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Xiamen University Zhongshan Hospital, Xiamen 361000, China.

To discuss the clinical effect of small dose of botulinum toxin injection in cricothyroid muscle and thyroarytenoid muscle on patients with incomplete bilateral recurrent laryngeal nerve paresis. Six patients were selected with Ⅰor Ⅱ or Ⅲ degree of dyspnea diagnosed as bilateral recurrent laryngeal nerve injury by laryngeal electromyography, and small dose of botulinum toxin injection was performed in cricothyroid muscle and thyroarytenoid muscle as a treatment. Degree of dyspnea was assessed one month before and after the treatment, and the stroboscopic laryngoscope results, acoustic parameters and CT image of the patients were collected in the 6 patients.
