A new video example of vocal cord immobility has been posted to our website. This example depicts how one can determine if a vocal cord immobility is due to paralysis (nerve damage) or due to arytenoid dislocation. Arytenoid is the joint that moves a vocal cord back and forth.
This example used direct manipulation of the vocal cord to make this determination. Another method of evaluating (not shown) include laryngeal EMG.
