  • Superior Laryngeal Nerve Paralysis

    Unilateral Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve Injury Etiology This syndrome results from an injury to the recurrent laryngeal nerve.[] Chapter 45 Pathophysiology of Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve Injury Unilateral laryngeal paralysis is occasionally completely asymptomatic.[] Abstract Superior laryngeal nerve (SLN) injury can cause many symptoms, the most common complaints being the inability to access the upper vocal range, difficulty projecting[]

  • Bilateral Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve Paralysis

    Intraoperative nerve monitoring can reduce prevalence of recurrent laryngeal nerve injury in thyroid reoperations: results of a retrospective cohort study.[] Abstract The superior laryngeal nerve (SLN) has been attributed much less clinical significance than the recurrent laryngeal nerve.[] Recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis is further subdivided into two patterns – direct injury and indirect injury. [7] The mechanism of recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis due[]

  • Substernal Goiter

    Abstract A careless attempt to remove a huge substernal goiter using the cervical approach can lead to recurrent laryngeal nerve injury, which has been consistently reported[] There was 1 permanent unilateral recurrent laryngeal nerve injury (1.4%) and 1 instance of permanent hypoparathyroidism (1.4%).[] In spite of a large invasive procedure, the risk of hypoparathyroidism or recurrent laryngeal nerve injury was not increased.[]

  • Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve Palsy

    BACKGROUND: Vocal fold immobility (paresis or paralysis) from recurrent laryngeal nerve injury remains an important cause of morbidity after anterior cervical spine surgery[] No bilateral recurrent laryngeal nerve injury occurred following IONM. 2016 BJS Society Ltd Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.[] Recurrent laryngeal nerve injury in thyroid surgery : a review. ANZ J Surg 2013;83:15–21. [2]. Stager SV.[]

  • Vocal Cord Paralysis

    The authors present a case of recurrent laryngeal nerve injury resulting in vocal cord paralysis causing stridor following central venous catheterisation under general anaesthesia[] Recurrent laryngeal nerve injury after thyroid gland surgery is one of the leading causes of acquired vocal cord paralysis.[] The latter was ruled out because there was no evidence of recurrent laryngeal nerve injury.[]

  • Subtotal Thyroidectomy

    Two of these patients developed recurrent laryngeal nerve injury (2.3%).[] The secondary outcome measure was the postoperative morbidity rate (hypoparathyroidism and recurrent laryngeal nerve injury).[] No differences were noted in transient or permanent recurrent laryngeal nerve injury.[]

  • Bilateral Vocal Cord Paralysis

    Early decompression may prevent permanent recurrent laryngeal nerve injury and airway obstruction.[] Recurrent laryngeal nerve injury after thyroid gland surgery is one of the leading causes of acquired vocal cord paralysis.[]

  • Goiter

    These include phrenic nerve palsies, Horner’s syndrome and recurrent laryngeal nerve palsies.[] Neurologic injury from benign thyroid disease has been reported in cases of large benign goiter as well.[] These complications include higher rates of transient and permanent vocal cord paralyses as well as temporary and permanent hypocalcemia from parathyroid gland injury.[]

  • Scoliosis

    Stretch injury to the recurrent laryngeal nerve from the left T5 pedicle screw or intubation may have caused the vocal cord paresis.[]
