Abstract

Advances in diagnosis through the use of video and still photographs have made the recognition of pediatric laryngeal disorders much more accurate and precise. Open laryngeal surgery in children was felt to possibly impair growth and development. New procedures to correct structural congenital and acquired lesions in children have freed us from many of these reservations. One of the frontiers now being explored is neurogenic abnormalities within the pediatric larynx. At present, no uniform method of evaluation is being used other than observation of laryngeal motion. The use of electromyography in combination with still and motion photography should allow proper evaluation of the results of surgery or observation.
