Structural Changes in Vocal Fold : Laryngeal Myasthenia

Laryngeal Myasthenia

The term laryngeal myasthenia refers to generalized muscle weakness in the laryngeal area. Laryngeal myasthenia is often associated incomplete closure of the vocal folds, which allows too much air to escape past the vocal folds when they are vibrating. Normal vocal folds move in a mirror image of each other, but with laryngeal myasthenia, asymmetrical movement is often present thus creating variability in voice quality. Laryngeal Myasthenia treated through direct restrengthening of the laryngeal musculature through voice therapy. No surgical intervention is required with this disorder.
