Laryngeal electromyography provides essential clinical information about the neuromuscular status of the larynx that no other test can provide for patients with presumed neuromuscular disorders of the larynx.
LEMG can be performed as an office procedure setting without any anaesthesia and it is well-tolerated by the vast majority of patients.
The most important clinical applications of Laryngeal EMG are:
- Diagnosis and prognosis for vocal fold paresis
- Prognosis and site-of-lesion testing for vocal fold paralysis
- Differentiation of vocal fold fixation from paralysis
- Diagnosis of neurological diseases and laryngeal movement disorders
