IMPORTANCE Thyroid and parathyroid surgery are among the most common operations in the United States. Recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) injury is an infrequent but potentially detrimental complication. OBJECTIVE To correlate the final evoked potential amplitudes on intraoperative electromyography (EMG) after stimulation of the RLN with immediate postoperative vocal fold function after thyroid and parathyroid surgery. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Retrospective observational study at a… CONTINUE READING
