OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To define normative amplitude and latency of vagus, recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN), and external branch of superior laryngeal nerve (EBSLN) and to apply them to postoperative neural function documentation. To our knowledge, this is the first study to report electrophysiologic characteristics of all three nerves in a consecutive patient series. STUDY DESIGN Prospective. METHODS Quantitative analysis of evoked waveform data was performed on both sides in consecutive… CONTINUE READING
