Paradoxical vocal cord motion: Classification and treatment
The Laryngoscope, 04/10/2012
Forrest LA et al. – It is proposed that Paradoxical vocal cord motion (PVCM) is a descriptive term that is multifactorial and the etiology should direct treatment. A classification scheme divides PVCM into primary, or psychological, and secondary. The secondary form consists of medical disorders divided into irritable larynx syndrome and neurologic disorders.
