A well-recognized cause of dyspnea in athletes is vocal cord dysfunction (VCD). VCD is characterized by paradoxical vocal fold movement (PVFM) in which the vocal folds adduct (close) during inspiration. Symptoms of VCD include wheezing, stridor, dyspnea, and exercise intolerance. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

To investigate patient-level predictors of initiation of voice therapy for paradoxical vocal fold motion disorder (PVFM).
Unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) impairs communication and reduces academic performance and social interactions in children. Deciding between temporary, permanent, or potentially destructive sur...
We present a unique case of intermittent paradoxical vocal fold motion (PVFM) as the presenting symptom of a rare underlying neuromuscular disorder in a neonate. Paramyotonia congenita (PC) is an auto...
Surgical adhesives are increasingly used for vocal fold microsurgery to assist wound closure and reduce the risks of scar formation. Currently used vocal fold adhesives such as fibrin glue, however, h...
To evaluate voice outcome after bilateral vocal fold injection with autologous fat in patients with non-paralytic glottic insufficiency due to vocal fold atrophy with or without sulcus.
Exercise-induced paradoxical vocal fold motion disorder (E-PVFMD) - which severely impacts the lives of up to 1 million adolescents in the U.S. annually - is under- or mis-diagnosed in as ...
Total of 100 patients are included in this is a prospective observational study to evaluate the role of airway ultrasound (USG) in assessing vocal cord mobility in patients undergoing thyr...
Paradoxical Vocal Fold Motion Disorder (PVFMD), otherwise known as vocal cord dysfunction (VCD) is a laryngeal breathing disorder that has several potential causes. In some individuals, ex...
The purpose of this study is to determine how often heart or chest surgery in children leads to problems with the movement of the vocal folds.
This study is planned to compare C-Mac video-laryngoscope and airway ultrasound as two novel techniques (causing least discomfort to the patients) for the detection of impaired vocal-cord ...
A disorder characterized by an intermittent abnormal VOCAL CORDS movement toward the midline during inspiration or expiration resulting in upper AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION.
A pair of cone-shaped elastic mucous membrane projecting from the laryngeal wall and forming a narrow slit between them. Each contains a thickened free edge (vocal ligament) extending from the THYROID CARTILAGE to the ARYTENOID CARTILAGE, and a VOCAL MUSCLE that shortens or relaxes the vocal cord to control sound production.
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with frequency-shifted ultrasound reflections produced by moving targets (usually red blood cells) in the bloodstream along the ultrasound axis in direct proportion to the velocity of movement of the targets, to determine both direction and velocity of blood flow. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Very small encapsulated gas bubbles (diameters of micrometers) that can be used as CONTRAST MEDIA, and in other diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Upon exposure to sufficiently intense ultrasound, microbubbles will cavitate, rupture, disappear, release gas content, etc. Such characteristics of the microbubbles can be used to enhance diagnostic tests, dissolve blood clots, and deliver drugs or genes for therapy.
The process of producing vocal sounds by means of VOCAL CORDS vibrating in an expiratory blast of air.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
