Abstract

Bilateral vocal fold immobility (BVFI) is a challenging clinical entity for laryngologists. The voice may be nearly normal but mostly there is a severe inspiratory deficiency. The patients may need surgical interventions primarily for life threatening dyspnea. While treating the dyspnea, dysphonia appears to be a problem to a certain extent. Providing a serviceable voice and prevention from further surgery for relapsing dyspnea, a balance is needed. Various techniques have been introduced for surgical management of BVFI. A modified approach in order to balance between dyspnea and dysphonia was performed on a BVFI patient and is presented in this report.
