Laryngeal Reinnervation for Paralytic Dysphonia in Children Younger Than 10 Years


Abstract: Unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) in infants and young children is a condition commonly encountered by the pediatric otolaryngologist, especially in pediatric tertiary hospitals with a cardiac surgery program. These procedures, and other pediatric neck or chest surgical procedures that intersect with the course of the vagus or the recurrent laryngeal nerves, can cause vocal fold paralysis. The symptoms of dysphagia, dysphonia, and stridor may result.
