Hoarseness after endotracheal intubation can result from compression of the anterior branch of the recurrent laryngeal nerve as it passes behind the thyroid cartilage to innervate the lateral cricoarytenoid muscle. This usually occurs when the cuff of the endotracheal tube lies in the larynx instead of the trachea. When a nasogastric tube is positioned in the midline, resultant postcricoid inflammation can result in vocal cord immobility. This may result from neuropraxia of the posterior branch of the recurrent laryngeal nerve that innervates the posterior cricoarytenoid and interarytenoid muscles, or inflammatory spasm of the interarytenoid muscles themselves. We present a case of vocal cord paralysis after general anesthesia that may have been caused by an esophageal stethoscope. The mechanism for vocal cord immobility could be similar to that of a midline nasogastric tube with resultant postcricoid inflammation. We describe measures that can be taken to prevent vocal cord paralysis after intubation of the larynx or esophagus.

Tinnitus is a common disorder and quite disabling for some patients. The neurophysiological model of tinnitus was proposed by Dr Pawel Jastreboff in mid 80's and first clinical trials were conducted in London by Drs Jonathan Hazell and Jacqui Sheldrake in late 80's. Subsequent refinements led to an established protocol called "Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT)). The success outcomes of TRT for the Management of Tinnitus & Hyperacusis in various centres has validated the model and the technique.
The present course is based on the contents of a similar course run in USA and conducted by the same faculty (www.tinnitus-pjj.com). The course will be limited to a small group for intense one-to-one interaction. Preference will be given to those working as a team of otologist & audiologist with an established infrastructure. Those interested may send their biodata to Dr Arun Goyal drarungoyal@...
