OBJECTIVE Variations of the external branch of the superior laryngeal nerve (EBSLN) are well represented in literature but with conflicting reports about the types and variations. Using EMG, the cricothyroid compound muscle action potential (CMAP) was recorded, to identify the EBSLN and classified them according to clinical variation during routine thyroid operations. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA There is increasing awareness among patients and physicians of the consequences of injury to the… CONTINUE READING
