Unilateral paralysis produces a slight hoarseness which usually disappears as a result of compensatory over-adduction of the opposite normal cord. However, bilateral paralysis results in complete loss of vocal power. Moreover, the two paralysed cords ﬂap together, producing a valve-like obstruction, especially during inspiration, with incapacitating dyspnoea and marked inspiratory stridor. Respiratory obstruction after thyroidectomy can also result from direct trauma to the tracheal cartilages (especially in carcinoma of the thyroid) causing tracheomalacia.
23 24 The Respiratory Pathway The larynx is elevated and pulled forward by the action of the thyrohyoid, stylohyoid, stylopharyngeus, digastric and mylohyoid muscles so that it comes into apposition with the base of the tongue, which is projecting backwards at this phase. While the larynx is raised and its entrance closed, there is reﬂex inhibition of respiration. As the head of a bolus of food reaches the epiglottis, it is ﬁrst tipped backward against the pharyngeal wall and momentarily holds up the onward passage of the food.
