OBJECTIVES: Medialization thyroplasty is an accepted method for improving non-compensated unilateral vocal cord palsy. Most surgeons decide the depth of penetration of the prosthesis by monitoring the voice changes in the patient during the surgical procedure. General anesthesia with intubation is incompatible with this procedure. Sedation is recommended. In this study we want to objectivize and quantify the influence of sedation and position on voice in order to know if this anesthetic procedure is justified in medialization thyroplasties...

A 30-year-old woman presented with a painless left upper neck swelling for more than a week. Fibrolaryngoscope examination suggested nasopharyngeal carcinoma. FDG PET/CT was performed for an initial staging, which revealed intense activity in the soft tissue mass in the nasopharynx and cervical lymph nodes. However, biopsy from the nasopharyngeal lesion demonstrated tuberculosis.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the feasibility and safety of lingual tonsil excision by endoscopic assisted coblation. METHOD: Twenty seven cases with lingual tonsil hypertrophy were recruited in this study. Preoperative fibrolaryngoscope and CT and (or) MRI examination of the base of the tongue, lingual tonsil was removed by 70 degrees nasal endoscopy-assisted plasma radiofrequency after nasotracheal intubation. The tongue wound healing and post-operative bleeding were observed after operation, the advantages of the endoscopic-assisted plasma radiofrequency on lingual tonsil removal were analyzed, and its feasibility and safety were summarized...

OBJECTIVE: Laryngomalacia is the most common cause for stridor in neonate and infant. Our study aims at assessing the outcome of surgical management in patients diagnosed by fibrolaryngoscope as congenital Iaryngomalacia. METHOD: Retrospective study of 16 patients undergoing surgery for severe laryngomalacia. The patients' symptoms, associated medical conditions and surgical management were recorded. RESULT: Stridor and feeding difficulty were observed in 16 patients on admission, while dyspnea was found in 11 patients...

The patient presented with dry cough, lending, fever and progressive dyspnea for two weeks. The patient had a prior respiratory infection history and the symptoms were not obvious, Early X-ray showed lung infection. Under the fibrolaryngoscope, the lingual surfaces of the epiglottis, epiglottic vallecula, and bilateral vocal cords were covered by yellow pseudomembrane. The motion of vocal cords was normal with poor glottic closure, and no ulcer was noted. Endotracheal mucosa was swelling and congested with an uneven surface, and purulent discharge and pseudomembrane was formed...

OBJECTIVE: Current methods of measuring pharyngeal pH are problematic. The aim of the study was to assess the ability of the oropharyngeal pH monitoring (Restech) in predicting the response to proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease-related laryngopharyngeal symptoms. STUDY DESIGN: The study design is prospective and uncontrolled. METHODS: Twenty-two consecutive naive patients with chronic laryngeal symptoms were enrolled...

OBJECTIVE: The current methods of management of tracheal stenosis have disadvantages and are controversial, therefore ideal experimental animal models for the further studies are required. The aim of this study was to establish a new model of canine tracheal stenosis by radiofrequency cauterization. METHODS: The tracheal cartilage ring was injured by radiofrequency at the level of the sixth tracheal ring in 12 mongrel dogs. A fibrolaryngoscope was used to guide the procedure...

The objective of the present study was to analyse results of fibrolaryngoscopic examination of pretumorous and tumorous laryngeal structures in 75 patients aged from 17 to 78 years who underwent repeated laryngeal biopsies to confirm suspected diagnosis of cancer. Vital staining of affected mucosal areas with a 1% methylene blue solution was used for the purpose. It was found that malignant tumours coloured violet as they readily absorbed the dye while its fixation by dysplastic tissue produced all shades of blue depending on the degree of dysplasia...

OBJECTIVE: To locate the recurrent laryngeal nerve fascicles in vagus and investigate the effect of the split-vagus nerve procedure to repair the paralyzed vocal cord in rats. METHOD: The method of dissection and acetylcholinesterase histochemical staining of neural fibers were used to locate the recurrent laryngeal nerve fascicles in vagus. Then 60 SD rats were divided into three groups. In experimental group right recurrent laryngeal nerve were incised and anastomosed to recurrent laryngeal nerve fascicles in vagus by means of the split-vagus nerve procedure...

The objective of the present work was to study the structure of voice disorders in children depending on the methods chosen to diagnose dysphonia. Medical histories of 1,451 children at the age varying from 2 months to 16 years were analysed. All of them were patients hospitalized for the first time between 1997 and 2007 to treat hoarseness caused by vocal cord nodules, functional or mutational dysphonia, chronic laryngitis, vocal cord paresis/palsy, recurring respiratory papillomatosis, vocal cord cystitis, and cicatrical laryngeal stenosis...

Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disorder of neuromuscular transmission, usually recognized with ocular complaints or generalized muscle weakness. However, among the 1520 MG cases that had been diagnosed and treated in our hospital in the last 15 years (1990-2005), we have identified 7 MG patients whose initial and prominent complaint was dysphonia and all had been misdiagnosed elsewhere. The diagnoses were confirmed with fibrolaryngoscope and voice analysis employed before and after a positive neostigmine (anticholinesterase) test...
