(b) Inadvertent damage to the vagus nerve can cause indicators mimicking these of recurrent laryngeal nerve harm. (c) so much recurrent laryngeal nerve accidents happen on the element the place it passes under the inferior constrictor muscle to develop into intralaryngeal. (d) An damage to the recurrent laryngeal nerve leaves the ipsilateral wire in a mean place. (e) harm to some of the best laryngeal nerve or its inner laryngeal department leaves the larynx and piriform recess insensate, leading to a lack of the cough reflex and elevated chance of aspiration. reviews The vagus nerve and all of its branches are uncovered to harm in the course of neck surgical procedure.
