Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/11/2018 -- Pune, India, January 2018 /MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has a half cooked research report on the Vocal Cord Paralysis Market.

The Global Vocal Cord Paralysis Market is the second most common congenital defect of the voice box, which accounts for about 10%-15% of congenital laryngeal disorders. It is an inability of one or both vocal cords to move properly. It is also called as a vocal fold paresis and it results from abnormal nerve input to the laryngeal muscles. This condition can occur at any age, from birth to advanced age, in males and females, due to a variety of causes. The cause of vocal fold paralysis indicates whether the disorder may resolve over time or it may be permanent. The major causes include inadvertent injury during surgery, a complication of endotracheal intubation, blunt neck or chest trauma, tumors of the skull base, neck, and chest, and viral infections.

Vocal fold movements are controlled by the brain through a specific nerve i.e. superior laryngeal nerve (SLN), and recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN). SLN carries signals to the cricothyroid muscle, and RLN carries signals to different voice box muscles, which are responsible for opening vocal folds, closing the folds for vibration during voice use, and other activities. Diseases that result in inflammation of the vocal cords includes Wegener's granulomatosis, gout, syphilis, sarcoidosis or polychondritis, and tuberculosis. Diabetes mellitus may also lead to a neuropathy resulting in vocal cord paralysis. Laryngoscopy is the most commonly adopted procedure for the diagnosis of vocal cord paralysis. According to a study published in Clinical and Experimental Otorhinolaryngology journal in 2017, it is found that electrical stimulation has emerged as a potential therapeutic technique to measure peripheral nerve injury. It is also stated that electrical stimulation may promote the specificity of reinnervation of denervated laryngeal muscles.
