AB  - Vocal fold immobility (VFI) is a common cause of dysphonia and dysphagia in
      children. Laryngeal electromyography (LEMG) is an important adjunctive test in
      its diagnosis and treatment. In this study, we present an alternative technique
      in which bipolar double hookwire electrodes allow simultaneous placement and
      recordings from the bilateral thyroarytenoid and posterior cricoarytenoid
      muscles. Details of the technique are shown for a 5 y/o F with history of
      Neurofibromatosis Type 2 with left VFI and aspiration and dysphonia. This
      modified technique for pediatric LEMG has the potential to be a useful tool in
      predicting return of laryngeal function.
