Clinical case – Laryngeal reinnervation in child in Russian Federation. Bilateral selective laryngeal reinnervation in a 9-year-old girl with bilateral laryngeal paralysis after thyroidectomy for medullary thyroid cancer. Head and neck. Russian Journal. 2021;9(1):54–60 (In Russian).


Thyroidectomy is one of the most common causes of paralytic laryngeal stenosis. At the moment, there are many options for surgical treatment of this pathology — from tracheostomy in emergency cases to endoscopic arytenoidchordectomy. One of the most modern operations in the 21st century is the method of laryngeal reinnervation. This clinical case is of particular interest due to the fact that earlier than 2017 this method was not used in pediatric surgery in Russia.

Key words: laryngeal stenosis, laryngeal paralysis, bilateral selective laryngeal reinnervation, child No conflicts of interest.
