Abstract

Electromyographic assessment (EMG) of the larynx is very important for diagnostic and prognostic in cases of unmoving larynx: definition that authors like better than larynx palsie or recurrent nerve palsie because it is impossible to know why the larynx do not move in many cases (15f for 20 cases in the experience of the authors). EMG must be realized on several muscles and not only on the vocal fold muscle. It is necessary to realize several EMG to have a good follow up. If we have the proof that it is a case of definitive recurrent palsie the authors think that it is now, indication of nervous selective anastomosis by micro-surgery.
