Abstract

According to the literature, up to 15% surgical interventions on the neck is accompanied with such complications as paralysis and paresis of the larynx. Rehabilitation of paralysed larynx by staged surgical treatment and prosthesis lasts for years. Late diagnosis of bilateral laryngeal paralysis after cervical surgery entails persistent systemic poststenotic alterations. The authors offer the diagnosis-treatment algorithm for patients with bilateral laryngeal paralysis which allows a significant reduction in duration of rehabilitation.
