A quantitative and qualitative study of the superior laryngeal nerve (SLN) and its branches was performed on the intact nerve and after experimental denervation procedures. The distribution patterns of the myelinated fibers of the intact internal (SLNI) and external (SLNE) branches in the rat were unimodal with a fiber diameter range of 0.5-12 microns and with peaks at 2-4 microns. Numerous unmyelinated fibers, ranging in diameter from 0.1-2.3 microns, were evenly distributed all over the nerve… CONTINUE READING
