Paper Abstract

Laryngeal videostroboscopy (LVS) allows the physician to examine the vibratory free edge of the vocal fold providing direct visualization of the vocal fold surface and indirect visualization of the substance of the vocal fold. Previously in dog LVS, electrical stimulation of the superior and recurrent laryngeal nerves or painful stimuli in the lightly anesthetized animal provided the impetus for glottic closure. In this paper we present a new technique for LVS in the dog model that involves mechanical traction on arytenoid adduction sutures to achieve vocal fold adduction. This method is safe, effective, and reproducible, and the potential applications are numerous.
