  • New therapeutic options and approaches have been developed based on an expanded knowledge of the underlying pathophysiology of vocal fold paralysis. The core of Vocal Fold Paralysis offers step-by-step descriptions and of the following therapies: vocal fold injection, medialization laryngoplasty, and arytenoid repositioning surgery. It also includes special topics such as reinnervation, vocal fold pacing, bilateral medialization, and pediatric and bilateral vocal fold paralysis. Vocal Fold Paralysis is a clinically useful reference for evaluation and treatment, as well as a summary of current knowledge and investigational approaches. This excellent guide fills a void within the field of otolaryngology and should not be missed by any otorhinolaryngologist, neurologist, phoniatrician or speech pathologist. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2006.
