Dysphonia, a less common symptom, may occur due to direct compression of osteophytes to the postcricoid region and recurrent laryngeal nerve, resulting in fixation of the arytenoids (4).
Check laryngoscopy is often carried out following thyroidectomy to evaluate the vocal cords, to compare them with their pre-surgery status and to rule out injury to the recurrent laryngeal nerves during surgery (1,2).
Additionally, invasive undifferentiated carcinoma was present in the tissue surrounding the right recurrent laryngeal nerve and multiple nodules within the central compartment dissection.
The main reticence to performing total thyroidectomy has been the higher likelihood of damage to the recurrent laryngeal nerve and induction of hypoparathyroidism.
Two published case reports described palliation of disease after Seihai-to therapy for refractory aspiration pneumonia caused by recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis and cerebrovascular disease.
Similarly, the recurrent laryngeal nerve, a branch of the vagus nerve, is one of the nerves at risk during neck dissections, including thyroid surgery.
In conclusion, although other methods are now more widely used as the mainstay of treatment for laryngeal nerve paralysis, Vox injections have not been completely discontinued.
Involvement of his right recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) secondary to thoracic paravertebral ropivacaine was suspected.
He explained that although minimally invasive techniques have made it possible to perform thyroid removal on an outpatient basis, most surgeons have continued to keep patients in the hospital at least overnight for observation in order to watch for possible complications such as laryngeal nerve damage, airway compromise, and hypoparathyroidism.
4,5) The most frequent complications are recurrent laryngeal nerve injury, (5-7) superior laryngeal nerve injury, (8,9) and postoperative hypoparathyroidism.
DIAGNOSIS: Left vocal cord paralysis secondary to malignant invasion of the left recurrent laryngeal nerve within the mediastinum.
Hoarseness is due to the stimulation of the left vocal cord via the left laryngeal nerve branch of the vagus nerve.
