The laryngeal adductor reflex (LAR) is an airway protective response triggered by sensory laryngeal receptors. It is unknown whether different glottic and supraglottic subsites vary in their reflex elicitation abilities. The recent discovery that a bilateral LAR is present in humans under general anesthesia upon laryngeal mucosal stimulation has enabled us to map the sensory receptor density for LAR elicitation at different laryngeal subsites. Our findings expose the likely mechanisms of LAR control.

Laryngeal trauma is rare in children due to the anatomical placement and the trauma mechanisms required for injury. Recently the trampoline has become frequent in Danish households leading to more hig...
Laryngeal cancer is a frequent cause of cancer-associated mortality worldwide with an overall poor prognosis along with high mortality rates. Therefore, comprehensive investigation of underlying molec...
The non-recurrent laryngeal nerve (NRLN), which is found in 0.25-0.99 of the patients who undergo thyroid surgery, is a rare embryologically-derived variant of the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN). Ide...
Isshiki systematically developed thyroplasty in the 1970 s. Based on Isshiki's classification of thyroplasty, laryngeal framework surgery was classified by the Phonosurgery Committee of the European L...
Airway management is a critical skill that may be essential in the battlefield. The aim of this study was to determine if combat life savers and medics with no or limited clinical experience could pro...
The aim of the study is to assess the efficiency and limitations of ultrasound in detecting and characterizing laryngeal anatomy and study of some laryngeal disorders and their ultrasonogr...
The intention of this study is to compare the performance of the single-use I-gel laryngeal mask with the classic laryngeal mask in 50 patients with a BMI>25 during elective surgery. Prima...
The study will take place at Rambam medical center, department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, for two years. Patients suspected of LPR or laryngeal l tumor and are candidate for ...
Bilateral laryngeal reinnervation induces a rise in laryngeal resistance and speech alteration. The aim of this study is to propose laryngeal reinnervation by a phrenic nerve root to patie...
The investigators hypothesized that, external branch of the superior laryngeal nerve (EBSLN) and/or recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) contribute to the motor function of the human cricophary...
Branches of the VAGUS NERVE. The superior laryngeal nerves originate near the nodose ganglion and separate into external branches, which supply motor fibers to the cricothyroid muscles, and internal branches, which carry sensory fibers. The RECURRENT LARYNGEAL NERVE originates more caudally and carries efferents to all muscles of the larynx except the cricothyroid. The laryngeal nerves and their various branches also carry sensory and autonomic fibers to the laryngeal, pharyngeal, tracheal, and cardiac regions.
Branches of the vagus (tenth cranial) nerve. The recurrent laryngeal nerves originate more caudally than the superior laryngeal nerves and follow different paths on the right and left sides. They carry efferents to all muscles of the larynx except the cricothyroid and carry sensory and autonomic fibers to the laryngeal, pharyngeal, tracheal, and cardiac regions.
Cancers or tumors of the LARYNX or any of its parts: the GLOTTIS; EPIGLOTTIS; LARYNGEAL CARTILAGES; LARYNGEAL MUSCLES; and VOCAL CORDS.
Abnormal accumulation of fluid in tissues of any part of the LARYNX, commonly associated with laryngeal injuries and allergic reactions.
Tuberculosis involving the larynx, producing ulceration of the VOCAL CORDS and the LARYNGEAL MUCOSA.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
