Electrophysiological change in the tensor veli palatini muscle after radiotherapy.


CONCLUSION Electromyography of the tensor veli palatine (TVP) was abnormal and showed mainly myogenic impairment in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) with secretory otitis media (SOM) after radiotherapy. The diseased ears showed impairment in opening functions of the eustachian tubes (ETs). OBJECTIVES To characterize electrophysiology of the… (More)
