Unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) is one of the common problems in laryngology. Practitioners treating these patients are faced with a choice of surgical techniques for rehabilitation. This course offers an in-depth learning experience into the management of vocal fold immobility.

This full three-day international course includes:

  • overview of work-up and non-surgical treatment for UVFP
  • full coverage of office and operating theatre based treatments by leaders in this field
  • extensive cadaveric dissection (one larynx and full neck per person)
  • case discussions

Faculty: Gauthier Desuter (B), Fred Dikkers (NL), Ramon Franco (USA), Kate Heathcote (UK), Markus Hess (D), Ton Langeveld (NL), Hans Mahieu (NL), Jean-Paul Marie (F), Youri Marijn (B), Elisabeth Sjogren (NL)

The program will take place at the Leiden University Medical Centre in Leiden, The Netherlands.
