An ENT specialist asks detailed questions about the signs and symptoms being faced by the patient and then examines him or her thoroughly. To examine vocal cords, an instrument like a laryngoscope may be used. Sound analysis and laryngeal electromyography are some of the additional tests that can be conducted in order to check the irregularities in the sound generated by the vocal cords.
Microlaryngeal surgery is done via the laryngoscope, it’s done with a thin lighted tube with a camera on the end which allows the doctor to visualize the area with good precision. Once the laryngoscope is inserted via the nose into the throat, the lesion is located, the doctor will remove the abnormal growth by using the tiny surgical tools which have been threaded via the laryngoscope to the affected site. This technique will permit the surgeon to perform the operation with great accuracy, only when the damaged tissue is excised. The surrounding area remains unharmed. The doctor will advise you to take complete rest during the initial weeks following surgery. Microlaryngeal surgery is safe but there are some risks involved. The risks are an allergic reaction to anesthesia, the risk of developing breathing difficulties, mainly in individuals with lung problems.
