Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Laryngeal symptoms may be caused by cranial nerve 9 and 10 compression at the brain stem

(Medical University of South Carolina) The Laryngoscope, December 24, 2018 issue, reports Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) investigator findings that compression of cranial nerves nine and ten is often responsible for unexplained laryngeal symptoms like chronic cough, vocal fold paralysis and hoarseness. Surgical decompression provided highly effective treatment with surgical patients experiencing significant, long-term improvements over medication-treated patients. These findings provide an important option to address the root cause of debilitating laryngeal symptoms that were previously unexplained.
