Phoniatric management of 3 clinical cases of voice disorders involving the recurrent nerve.
ABSTRACT These three cases involve aphonia or dysphonia as a consequence of entrapment of one of the recurrent nerves, in the absence of any prior surgical history. Depending on the particular case, one to two months was needed to normalize phonatory function; One case relapsed after a year. The phoniatric management of these cases involved: New functional and acoustic pattern, recorded by the patient as a form of daily maintenance; Laryngeal and perilaryngeal manual therapy, applied according to the "osteovox" method. Manual therapy and different phonatory habits, in association with alternative medicine can reduce the time to recovery in the case of cold-induced unilateral paresis.
