Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two patients who had undergone emergency tracheal intubation developed signs of aspiration of ingested food. Nasendoscopy demonstrated supraglottic anaesthesia which recovered from the laryngeal margins in towards the vocal cords. It is assumed that this was caused by a neuropraxia of the internal branch of the superior laryngeal nerve, presumably as a result of trauma related to intubation.
