Traumatic injuries to the RECURRENT LARYNGEAL NERVE that may result in vocal cord dysfunction.
Branches of the vagus (tenth cranial) nerve. The recurrent laryngeal nerves originate more caudally than the superior laryngeal nerves and follow different paths on the right and left sides. They carry efferents to all muscles of the larynx except the cricothyroid and carry sensory and autonomic fibers to the laryngeal, pharyngeal, tracheal, and cardiac regions.
Disorders of one or more of the twelve cranial nerves. With the exception of the optic and olfactory nerves, this includes disorders of the brain stem nuclei from which the cranial nerves originate or terminate.
The largest cartilage of the larynx consisting of two laminae fusing anteriorly at an acute angle in the midline of the neck. The point of fusion forms a subcutaneous projection known as the Adam's apple.

Surgical treatment of an aneurysm of the aberrant right subclavian artery involving an aortic arch aneurysm and coronary artery disease. (1/77)

A 55-year-old man presented with clinical signs of an aortic arch aneurysm. Angiography, MRI and CT demonstrated an aortic arch aneurysm and an aneurysm of the aberrant right subclavian artery. Coronary angiography revealed 95% stenosis in the right coronary artery. Right common carotid artery-right subclavian artery bypass, arch graft replacement and coronary artery bypass grafting were performed successfully. The use of internal shunt tube, hypothermic circulatory arrest and selective cerebral perfusion were useful methods in prevention of cerebral ischemia during surgical reconstruction of the aortic arch. To our knowledge, this is the first report in the literature of a successfully managed case with an aneurysm of an aberrant right subclavian artery involving an aortic arch aneurysm and coronary artery disease.  (+info)

Pharyngolaryngeal morbidity with the laryngeal mask airway in spontaneously breathing patients: does size matter? (2/77)

BACKGROUND: Currently, the manufacturer of the laryngeal mask airway (LMA; Laryngeal Mask Company, Ltd., Northfield End, Henley on Thames, Oxon, United Kingdom) recommends using as large a mask size as possible. The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of pharyngolaryngeal morbidity after the use of a large (size 5 in males and size 4 in females) or small (size 4 in males and size 3 in females) LMA in spontaneously breathing patients. METHODS: A total of 258 male and female patients were randomly assigned to insertion of a large or small LMA while breathing spontaneously during general anesthesia. After insertion of the LMA, a "just-seal" cuff pressure was obtained, and intracuff pressure was measured at 10-min intervals until just before removal of the LMA. The 2- and 24-h incidence of postoperative sore throat, pain, hoarseness, dysphagia, and nausea and vomiting was assessed. Complications after LMA removal, including body movement, coughing, retching, regurgitation, vomiting, biting on the LMA, bronchospasm, laryngospasm, or the presence of blood on the LMA, were recorded. RESULTS: The use of a large LMA was associated with a higher incidence of sore throat in both sexes (20% vs. 7% in men, 21% vs. 5% in women; P < 0.05) and a higher incidence of hoarseness in male patients at 2 h postoperatively (21% vs. 9%, P < 0.05). There was a higher incidence of sore throat in male patients at 24 h postoperatively with the use of a large LMA (26% vs. 12%, P < 0.05). There was no difference in the incidence of complications of LMA removal orother pharyngolaryngeal morbidity, such as difficulty swallowing, drinking, and eating, or nausea and vomiting, between male or female groups at any time period with the use of a large LMA. CONCLUSIONS: Selection of a small laryngeal mask airway (size 4) in spontaneously breathing male patients may be more appropriate to limit the occurrence of sore throat on the first postoperative day. All patients had a fourfold increased risk of developing sore throat when a large LMA was used.  (+info)

Systematic review of clinical effectiveness of pressurised metered dose inhalers versus other hand held inhaler devices for delivering corticosteroids in asthma. (3/77)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the clinical effectiveness of pressurised metered dose inhalers (with or without spacer) compared with other hand held inhaler devices for the delivery of corticosteroids in stable asthma. DESIGN: Systematic review of randomised controlled trials. DATA SOURCES: Cochrane Airways Group trials database (Medline, Embase, Cochrane controlled clinical trials register, and hand searching of 18 relevant journals), pharmaceutical companies, and bibliographies of included trials. TRIALS: All trials in children or adults with stable asthma that compared a pressurised metered dose inhaler with any other hand held inhaler device delivering the same inhaled corticosteroid. RESULTS: 24 randomised controlled trials were included. Significant differences were found for forced expiratory volume in one second, morning peak expiratory flow rate, and use of drugs for additional relief with dry powder inhalers. However, either these were within clinically equivalent limits or the differences were not apparent once baseline characteristics had been taken into account. No significant differences were found between pressurised metered dose inhalers and any other hand held inhaler device for the following outcomes: lung function, symptoms, bronchial hyper-reactivity, systemic bioavailability, and use of additional relief bronchodilators. CONCLUSIONS: No evidence was found that alternative inhaler devices (dry powder inhalers, breath actuated pressurised metered dose inhalers, or hydrofluoroalkane pressurised metered dose inhalers) are more effective than the pressurised metered dose inhalers for delivery of inhaled corticosteroids. Pressurised metered dose inhalers remain the most cost effective first line delivery devices.  (+info)

Collapse, hoarseness of the voice and swelling and bruising of the neck: an unusual presentation of thoracic aortic dissection. (4/77)

A 66 year old woman presented to the accident and emergency department with history of collapse, hoarseness of the voice, and swelling and bruising of the neck. The diagnosis was not initially obvious because of the absence of chest pain. The findings on the radiograph of the soft tissue of the neck and chest radiograph suggested the need for computed tomography of the neck and chest. This confirmed the cervical haematoma and typical signs of aortic dissection. This unusual presentation of thoracic aortic dissection is discussed below.  (+info)

A technique for the prevention of hoarseness during surgery for distal aortic arch aneurysm. (5/77)

Ocular and respiratory symptoms attributable to inactivated split influenza vaccine: evidence from a controlled trial involving adults. (6/77)

In 2000, an influenza vaccine was associated with unusual ocular and respiratory symptoms (known as "oculorespiratory syndrome" [ORS]) that possibly were due to numerous microaggregates of unsplit viruses present in the product. We assessed the potential for an improved vaccine formulation (for use in 2001-2002) to cause ORS and other symptoms in adults, using a double-blind, randomized, crossover study design. Symptoms were ascertained 24 h after 622 doses of vaccine and 626 doses of saline placebo were injected. The risk of ORS was 6.3% after vaccine injection and 3.4% after placebo injection, which yielded a significant vaccine-attributable risk of 2.9% (95% confidence interval, 0.6-5.2). ORS symptoms were mild. Significant differences in risk after injection of vaccine versus placebo existed for ocular soreness and/or itching (2.4%), coughing (1.6%), and hoarseness (1.2%). Vaccine-attributable general symptoms were infrequent. We conclude that certain mild oculorespiratory symptoms were triggered by an influenza vaccine that was otherwise minimally reactogenic and, hence, that such symptoms might be associated with influenza vaccines in general.  (+info)

Sore throat and hoarseness after total intravenous anaesthesia. (7/77)

BACKGROUND: Sore throat and hoarseness are common complications, but these have not been studied after total i.v. anaesthesia. METHODS: We prospectively studied 418 surgical patients, aged 15-92 yr, after total i.v. anaesthesia with propofol, fentanyl and ketamine to assess possible factors associated with sore throat and hoarseness. RESULT: We found sore throat in 50% and hoarseness in 55% of patients immediately after surgery. This decreased to 25% for sore throat and 24% for hoarseness on the day after surgery. Both sore throat and hoarseness were more common in females and when lidocaine spray had been used. Cricoid pressure during laryngoscopy was inversely associated with the risk of sore throat. CONCLUSION: Knowledge of these factors may reduce postoperative throat complications, and improve patient satisfaction.  (+info)

Stereotactic radiosurgery for recurrent pleomorphic adenoma invading the skull base--case report--. (8/77)

A 38-year-old man presented with a recurrent pleomorphic adenoma in the parapharyngeal space invading the skull base 19 years after the first operation for a parotid gland tumor. Stereotactic radiotherapy was performed to control the tumor growth using a marginal dose of 8 Gy and maximum dose of 18 Gy with care taken to minimize the dose to nearby structures. The symptoms were reduced within a few months. Magnetic resonance imaging over 5 years showed that the tumor was controlled with no regrowth. Stereotactic radiotherapy is a therapeutic option for the treatment of pleomorphic adenomas.  (+info)

Ortners syndrome is a rare cardiovocal syndrome and refers to recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy from cardiovascular disease. It was first described by Norbert Ortner (1865-1935), an Austrian physician, in 1897. The most common historical cause is a dilated left atrium due to mitral stenosis, but other causes, including pulmonary hypertension, thoracic aortic aneurysms, an enlarged pulmonary artery and aberrant subclavian artery syndrome have been reported compressing the nerve. Dysphagia caused by a similar mechanism is referred to as dysphagia aortica, or, in the case of subclavian artery aberrancy, as dysphagia lusoria. Due to compression of recurrent laryngeal nerve it can cause the hoarseness of the voice which is also one of the sign of the mitral stenosis. A second Ortners syndrome, Ortners syndrome II, refers to abdominal angina. Bickle IC, Kelly BE, Brooker DS (May 2002). Ortners syndrome: a radiological diagnosis. Ulster Med J. 71 (1): 55-6.

Hoarseness (dysphonia) is defined as an altered voice due to a laryngeal disorder.2 It is an important symptom of laryngeal disease presenting in general practice, and ranges from the very common, trivial, self-limiting condition of viral upper respiratory tract infection to a life-threatening disorder (see Table 57.1). It may be of sudden presentation lasting only a few days or develop gradually and persist for weeks or months. The cut-off point between acute and chronic hoarseness is three weeks duration, by which time most self-limiting conditions have resolved. Hoarseness pertains to harsh, raspy, gravelly or rough tones of voice rather than pitch or volume. Rarely, hoarseness can be a functional or deliberate symptom referred to as hysterical aphonia.3 In this condition, patients purposely hold the cords apart while speaking. ...
Acoustic Analysis and synthesis of hoarseness by sound spectrography suggests that the acoustic properties of hoarseness are mainly determined by the interactions of the following three factors: 1) noise components in the main formant of each vowel, 2) high frequency noise components above 3000 Hz, and 3) the loss of high frequency harmonic components. These three findings are more pronounced in the vowels /α/, /ε/, and /i/ than in /u/ and /ɔ/. With the progression of the severity of hoarseness, these three abnormal patterns become more prominent and exaggerated. On the basis of these findings, a classification of four types of hoarseness was presented using sonagram tracings.. ...
Acute laryngitis-The most common cause of hoarseness is acute laryngitis. A cold, viral infection in your breathing tract, or voice strain can make your vocal cords swell. You can seriously damage your vocal cords if you talk while you have laryngitis.. Non-cancerous vocal cord lesions-Nodules, polyps, and cysts usually develop after prolonged trauma to the vocal cords from talking too much, too loudly, or with bad technique.. Pre-cancerous or cancerous lesions-Pre-cancer or cancerous lesions on the vocal cords can also cause hoarseness. If it lasts four weeks or more, or if you are at a higher risk of developing throat cancer (i.e., you smoke), you should have your voice box evaluated by an ENT specialist.. Neurological diseases or disorders-Hoarseness can occur with Parkinsons disease or after a stroke. A rare disorder called spasmodic dysphonia can also create hoarseness or uneasy breathing. A paralyzed vocal cord, usually after surgery, viral illness, or injury, may also cause a weak, ...
Many times, hoarseness clears up on its own without any sort of medical intervention. Many patients take a wait-and-see approach, treating symptoms with home remedies that include resting the voice, staying hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids and using a humidifier to add moisture to the air.. Making certain lifestyle changes - eliminating spicy foods, alcohol and caffeine from the diet, giving up cigarettes, avoiding activities that cause vocal cord strain such as shouting, whispering, or using inappropriate pitch or volume - are all helpful ways to reduce or eliminate the symptoms associated with chronic hoarseness.. Sometimes, a trip to see an otolaryngologist or other ENT specialist is necessary. If hoarseness lasts longer than three weeks, is not accompanied by cold or flu symptoms, affects your ability to swallow or breathe or otherwise interferes with your livelihood, schedule an appointment with Carolina Ear Nose & Throat - Sinus and Allergy Center.. You will be given a thorough ...

Upon diagnosing a voice problem, I subdivide causes of hoarseness into two primary categories. I think of these broad categories in terms of what causes the vocal cord dysfunction and so I name them functional hoarseness and structural hoarseness. This categorization is based upon the perceived cause of the hoarseness and it helps in directing the type of treatment for the problem.. By functional, I mean that the problem has arisen from how the voice is used. The vocal behavior or pattern of use causes the problem. An example would be the person who talks so much that the voice becomes hoarse. The function (overuse) caused a change in the structure, usually swelling in the middle of the vocal cord, which causes an air leak around the swelling and stiff portion, and thus hoarseness.. A structural hoarseness problem is one in which the vocal cord structure changed as the primary etiology. For example, a smoker over many years of exposing their vocal cords to tobacco ingredients and heat, may ...
Another common cause of acute hoarseness of the voice is trauma to the throat. It can be mechanical in nature like with a foreign object lodged in the vocal cords or chemical as is seen with cigarette smoking and acid reflux. Injury to the brain or nerves controlling phonation may also contribute to hoarseness. Medication like asthma inhalers can in some patients contribute to hoarseness. Allergies may cause recurrent bouts of hoarseness and also a nasal tone to the voice when associated with conditions alike allergic rhinitis.. Most women are concerned about hoarseness being associated with virilization. This means that the changes in the vocal cords are associated with higher than normal levels of male sex hormones. Overall, virilization is a very uncommon cause of voice hoarseness in women. It typically develops over a long period of time and is associated with changes in skin (like acne), hair (abnormal facial hair, thinning scalp hair), changes in menstruation (irregular cycle) and ...
Dysphonia, also known as hoarseness, is a general term used to describe a variety of changes in voice quality. Persistence of hoarseness for more than 3 months is not normal in adults or children, and may be an indication of a serious underlying pathology. Evaluation should take place whenever a ...
A complete history of the hoarseness, including vocal quality, duration of hoarseness, aggravating or alleviating symptoms, and any other associated symptoms such as cough, postnasal drainage, or sore throat will be helpful to the physician in determining the cause. Medications taken or changed in the recent past should be mentioned as well as any surgery that was performed on the head, neck, or chest area. Any other abnormal sensations such as muscle weakness or difficulty swallowing should be discussed. A history of smoking, even if it was in the past, is important to mention to the nurse or doctor.. The physician will perform a complete head and neck exam, including evaluation of the nose, mouth, neck, and lungs. A special procedure to visualize the vocal cords, called a laryngoscopy, will be performed. This procedure can be done with a camera that is a flexible fiberoptic design, or with a quartz Hopkins scope. Your physician will determine which kind of laryngoscopy would best diagnose your ...
When hoarseness is mild, but we have a sore throat, it may be useful to take anti-inflammatory virtues of some herbs, taken several times a day. We can make a homemade syrup and natural infusion of hedge mustard, made by mixing one tablespoon of dried herb in a cup of boiling water with three tablespoons of honey. It is ideal to combat throat infections.. It can also be mixed with mallow.. Excellent ally against hoarseness is also the marshmallow, soothing and anti-inflammatory effect, it can be taken as a tincture, 20 drops in half a glass of water, once in the morning and afternoon. To do gargle, as appropriate may be the lavender for its inflammatory and soothing action. Prepare a tea with a teaspoon of dried lavender leaves in a cup of hot water and let cool..

OBJECTIVE This study aimed to identify voice disorders commonly misidentified as reflux and sources of such misattribution. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective chart review. METHODS Twenty-six patients carrying a diagnosis of reflux alone presenting for second-opinion evaluation were identified from among 381 new patients presenting with a chief complaint of hoarseness over an 8-month period. Patients specifically referred for further workup were excluded. RESULTS Average duration of reflux treatment was 10.6 +/- 9.0 weeks. In no case was reflux alone the cause of hoarseness. Eleven (42%) had phonotraumatic lesions, 9 (34%) had neurologic disorders, 5 (19%) had age-related changes, and I (4%) was infectious. Twenty-two (85%) abnormalities were diagnosed by dynamic laryngeal examination with improved optics, including stroboscopy. Only 4 (15%) represented disorders routinely diagnosed with flexible fiberoptic laryngoscopy. CONCLUSION Hoarse patients with no apparent cause for dysphonia other than reflux

In evaluating hoarseness, the healthcare provider usually will take a complete medical history. Any symptoms associated with the hoarseness will also be discussed. The person may be asked if there is a history of other illnesses or conditions, such as cancer, arthritis, or aneurysm. A physical exam will also be done. The mouth and throat will be examined for redness, swelling, or drainage of pus. The neck will be felt for swollen glands, lymph nodes, thyroid enlargement, or other lumps in the neck. The healthcare provider may ask the person to stick out his or her tongue. If this is extremely difficult, there may be paralysis of one of the cranial nerves. The eyes may be examined for ulcers or other problems. The neck and chest may be examined for enlarged veins possibly indicating an thoracic aortic aneurysm. Vital signs, including pulse, rate of breathing, temperature, and blood pressure will also be monitored to evaluate for infection. A laryngoscopy may also be necessary. This test involves ...

Benign Vocal Cord Lesions. Benign non-cancerous growths on the vocal cords are most often caused by voice misuse or overuse, which causes trauma to the vocal cords.. These lesions (or bumps) on the vocal cord(s) alter vocal cord vibration and lead to hoarseness. The most common vocal cord lesions are nodules, polyps, and cysts. Vocal nodules (also known as nodes or singers nodes) are similar to calluses of the vocal cords. They happen on both vocal cords opposite each other at the point of maximal wear and tear, and are generally treated with voice therapy to eliminate the vocal trauma that is causing them. Contrary to common myth, vocal nodules are highly treatable and intervention leads to improvement in most cases.. Vocal cord polyps and cysts are the other common benign lesions. These are sometimes related to voice misuse or overuse, but can also happen in people who dont use their voice improperly. These types of problems typically require microsurgical treatment for cure, with voice ...
