Objective measurement of upper airway resistance in patients with vocal cord paralysis and with hypotonic dysphonia


The upper airway resistance of the glottis was measured synchronously, by means of body plethysmography and a modified interuption technique. Preliminary results obtained from 28 patients with hypotonic dysphonia and from 100 patients with uni- and bilateral vocal cord paralysis are discussed along with their treatment and consequent results using tefloninjections (Beck) and lateral fixations.
