Abstract

Congenital upper airway obstruction is a relatively rare but important cause of major respiratory problems in the neonatal period. Vocal cord paralysis is the second most common cause of congenital airway obstruction presenting with neonatal stridor. It is often the reason for the failure of neonates to wean from the respiratory support. A retrospective analysis of medical record review was conducted. There were seven paediatric patients diagnosed with bilateral vocal fold paralysis in the past three years, of which five were recently diagnosed. All patients underwent flexible with/without rigid bronchoscopes to confirm the diagnosis. This case series highlight our experience in managing the problem of bilateral vocal cord paralysis in the paediatric population, with particular emphasis on their clinical presentations, associated complications and both upper and lower airway abnormalities. The management options and outcome of these patients will also be discussed.
