Levy Place, New York, NY 10549, USA and application of basic pharmacodynamic principles allows for optimal anesthetic management of otolaryngology procedures. For instance, knowing that the cough reflex is inhibited by activation of opioid mu receptors facilitates its suppression and thus minimizes “bucking” and improves patient tolerance of the presence of an endotracheal tube. Alternatively, it can be suppressed at the axonal level with blockade of the internal laryngeal branch of the superior laryngeal nerve by local anesthetic injection.

Radiologic evaluation of the larynx is usually performed to assess for hoarseness, laryngeal mass (such as squamous cell carcinoma; Fig. 25), vocal cord paralysis (recurrent laryngeal nerve injury; Fig. 26), and trauma. Spiral CT is usually the radiologic test of choice for evaluating the larynx, although MRI is also useful (particularly in assessing extent of cancer 2 Gross and Radiographic Anatomy 19 Inferior ganglion of vagus nerve Greater cornu hyoid bone Superior laryngeal nerve Internal branch Opening for internal branch of superior laryngeal nerve in thyrohyoid membrane External branch Thyroid cartilage Cricoid cartilage Fig.
