abstract

  • Alterations in tongue sensation and taste, most likely due to lingual nerve injury, are common after microlaryngoscopy, especially in female patients. They also tend to be associated with longer operative times. Although transient in nearly every case, lingual paresthesia and dysgeusia should form part of the preoperative discussion with the patient.
