Recurrent laryngeal nerve monitoring during thyroidectomy and parathyroidectomy in children.

Summary of "Recurrent laryngeal nerve monitoring during thyroidectomy and parathyroidectomy in children."

Injury of the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) is the most frequent complication of thyroid and parathyroid (TP) surgery. Monitoring of the RLN in children is not widely studied as this is not a common disease in the pediatric population. The aim of our study was to evaluate the reliability, feasibility and benefits of RLN monitoring during TP surgery in children.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Traumatic injuries to the RECURRENT LARYNGEAL NERVE that may result in vocal cord dysfunction.

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.

Traumatic injuries to the LARYNGEAL NERVE.

Childhood-onset of recurrent headaches with an oculomotor cranial nerve palsy. Typically, ABDUCENS NERVE; OCULOMOTOR NERVE; and TROCHLEAR NERVE are involved with DIPLOPIA and BLEPHAROPTOSIS.
