Laryngeal Allograft Transplantation

The purpose of this proposed study is to obtain safety and efficacy data on human laryngeal allograft transplantation in an effort to safely use these procedures as a viable reconstructive...

Role of Ultrasound in Laryngeal Lesions

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...

Comparison of the I-gel Laryngeal Mask and the Classic Laryngeal Mask in Patients With a BMI > 25 During Elective Surgery

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...

CDx Biopsies for Detection of Laryngopharyngeal Reflux and Laryngeal Lesions

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 Paralysis Reinnervation

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...

Functional identification of abductor and adductor branches for laryngeal transplantation.

This is a feasibility study of functional identification of the abductor and adductor recurrent laryngeal nerve branches, which could be used in the donor's larynx for functional laryngeal transplanta...

Laryngeal mask airway and transient hypercapnic hyperpnea for video-endoscopic assessment of unilateral laryngeal paralysis in dogs.

To evaluate the ability to assess laryngeal function and to diagnose unilateral laryngeal paralysis (uLP) via airway endoscopy and carbon dioxide (CO) stimulation.

Human laryngeal sensory receptor mapping illuminates the mechanisms of laryngeal adductor reflex control.

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 el...

Antiproliferative potential of miR-33a in laryngeal cancer Hep-2 cells via targeting PIM1.

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...

lncRNA-NKILA/NF-κB feedback loop modulates laryngeal cancer cell proliferation, invasion, and radioresistance.

Laryngeal cancer is one of the most common head and neck malignant tumors and is commonly resistant to X-ray-based radiotherapy. NF-κB interacting lncRNA (NKILA) has been reported to serve as a tumor...

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.

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.

Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.

Abnormal accumulation of fluid in tissues of any part of the LARYNX, commonly associated with laryngeal injuries and allergic reactions.
