Vocal Fold Paralysis


Have you ever heard that the vocal cords can paralyze?

The vocal fold paralysis is usually unilateral and causes a lot of hoarseness, throat clearing, frequent choking and sometimes even breathlessness.

Its diagnosis is made by video-laryngoscopy and the determination of its cause must be investigated as soon as possible, and a history of thyroid surgery has to be investigated previously, and even tumors of the central nervous system.

Its treatment might include surgery and for sure speech therapy.

So if you notice you have chronic hoarseness do not hesitate to schedule your videolaryngoscopy with us.
