The Shaking Palsy of the Larynx—Potential Biomarker for Multiple System Atrophy: A Pilot Study and Literature Review
TLDR
It is suggested that specific abnormal vocal fold motion can help identifying MSA patients and may allow for delimiting this disorder from idiopathic PD.
Laryngeal Tremor: Co-Occurrence with Other Movement Disorders
TLDR
Otolaryngologists may be the first to evaluate a patient for tremors and it is important to consider other movement disorders when examining these patients as neurologic assessment and treatment of other tremors may be beneficial.
Palliative treatment of dysphonia and dysarthria.
aryngoscopy evaluation protocol for the ifferentiation of essential and dystonic voice remor
TLDR
The protocol of specific tasks by means of transnasal fiberoptic laryngoscopy is a viable method to differentiate between essential and dystonic voice tremor syndromes through the following tasks: /s/ production, continuous whistling and reduction of tremor in falsetto.
Vocal Cord Immobility: Central Origin
TLDR
The differentiation of vocal cord immobility of central origin and diseases like essential voice tremor and laryngeal dystonia is explained and modern phonosurgery plays an important role in the curative or palliative care of patients.
The Role of Vocal Fold Bowing on Cough and Swallowing Dysfunction in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy
TLDR
The prevalence of vocal fold bowing in PSP, and the influence of vocal folds bowing on cough and swallowing in PSP are examined.
Speech–Language Pathology Evaluation and Management of Hyperkinetic Disorders Affecting Speech and Swallowing Function
TLDR
The standard SLP clinical speech and swallowing evaluation of chorea/Huntington’s disease, myoclonus, focal and segmental dystonia, and essential vocal tremor typically includes case history and evaluation of speech characteristics.
Laryngeal Dystonia
TLDR
A multidisciplinary panel of experts was convened for a 1-day workshop to examine the current progress in understanding its etiopathophysiology and clinical care and adopted the term “laryngeal dystonia” instead of “spasmodic dysphonia” to reflect thecurrent progress in characterizations of this disorder.

Cough and Paradoxical Vocal Fold Motion
TLDR
Gastroesophageal reflux disease, vagal neuropathy, and paradoxical vocal fold motion are additional causes of chronic cough and disordered breathing that need to be considered, in the absence of obvious laryngotracheal and/or rhinologic pathology.

TLDR
It is critical to consider the differential diagnosis of an assumed bilateral vocal cord paralysis and understand the management of paradoxical movement, weakness, joint fixation, interarytenoid scar, laryngospasm, and psychogenic disorders.
Laryngeal Dystonia: A Series with Botulinum Toxin Therapy
TLDR
Patients received benefit within 24 to 72 hours, with sustained improvement for 2 to 9 months with an average of 4 months, and BOTOX has become the treatment of choice for dystonic conditions of the larynx.
The Parkinson larynx: tremor and videostroboscopic findings.
Effects of Botulinum Toxin on Pathophysiology in Spasmodic Dysphonia
TLDR
The results suggest that changes in the central pathophysiology are responsible for changes in speech symptoms following treatment in persons with adductor spasmodic dysphonia.
Clinical evaluation of vocal fold paralysis.
Selective Laryngeal Adductor Denervationreinnervation: A New Surgical Treatment for Adductor Spasmodic Dysphonia
TLDR
In this new procedure, the adductor branch of the recurrent laryngeal nerve is selectively denervated bilaterally, and its distal nerve stumps are reinnervated with branches of the ansa cervicalis nerve.
Adductor spastic dysphonia as a sign of essential (voice) tremor.
TLDR
Although the results do not prove conclusively that the patients diagnosed as having spastic dysphonia in this study actually had essential tremor, the similarities to that disorder strongly suggest a linkage.
