We relate the experience obtained in the use of the right superior laryngeal nerve (motor branch)--cricothyroid muscle pedicle flap in dogs in an attempt to reinnervate the right posterior cricoarytenoid muscle (PCA). The right vocal cord was paralyzed by severance and removal of 2.5 cm of the right recurrent laryngeal nerve. Evaluation 6 months(More)
Previous analyses of the Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised (WMS-R; Wechsler, 1987) have reported one-, two-, and three-factor solutions and raised questions about the validity of the visual memory subtests. These various findings may stem in part from different methods of analysis, and from the study of different participant samples. To address these issues, we(More)
This report analyzes the experience gained using two different techniques to reinnervate the paralyzed vocal cord. In the neurotization group, the superior laryngeal nerve (SLN) motor branch-cricothyroid muscle pedicle was used to reinnervate the posterior cricoarytenoid muscle. In the direct nerve anastomosis group, the SLN was anastomosed to the abductor(More)
