Video_1_Role of Unilateral Vocal Cord Palsy in Causing Recurrent Tracheobronchial Foreign Bodies.WMV
Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
Background: Foreign body (FB) aspiration in children is a frequent condition managed by ENT pediatric surgeons and pediatric pulmonologists.
Methods: We present the case of a 20-months-old child who presented with three recurrent episodes of FB aspiration.
Results: At the time of FB removal, an initial dynamic examination of the larynx revealed a unilateral vocal cord palsy (UVCP).
Conclusion: For recurrent tracheobronchial FB inhalation, we recommend a systematic dynamic airway endoscopy.
