Laryngeal Paralysis Part Two

 

Meet Marcie.

Marcie-Laryngeal Paralysis Patient

Marcie came to us with a history of breathing problems. Over the past five to six months, her respiration had gradually worsened and become more and more of a struggle.

At her exam, she displayed stridor and cyanosis consistent with laryngeal paralysis.

Dr. Dew discussed arytenoid tie-back procedure, the recovery process and prognosis for patients undergoing this procedure.

Marcie’s mom decided to go ahead and bring Marcie to Russellville for surgery.
