Abstract

SPACE-OCCUPYING intralaryngeal muscle implantation for correction of symptoms associated with arytenoidal dislocation and resultant cordal fixation in wide abduction is an effective surgical procedure, and was used in the following instance.

REPORT OF A CASE  Mr. W. C., a white man, aged 27, was first examined in our office on March 18, 1952, because of symptoms of an acute maxillary sinusitis. The clinical findings corroborated the history. In addition, hoarseness of marked degree was evident.Initial vocal difficulty occurred during childhood when an injury to the neck occurred. Memory of circumstances and symptoms associated with this was vague. However, mild hoarseness dated back to this incident.The patient was inducted into the Army in 1943, and the medical examiner noted some laryngeal problem with the technical details of which the patient was unfamiliar.Subsequent to this, while on active duty, he was struck in the neck by a rifle butt.
