What is a laryngoscope?
Laryngoscopy is an endoscopy of the larynx, a part of the throat. It is a medical procedure that is used to obtain a view, for example, of the vocal folds and the glottis. Laryngoscopy may be performed to facilitate tracheal intubation during general anesthesia or cardiopulmonary resuscitation or for surgical procedures on the larynx or other parts of the upper tracheobronchial tree.
Doctors sometimes use a small device to look into your throat and larynx or voice box. This procedure is called a laryngoscopy. They may do this to figure out why you have a cough or a sore throat, to find and remove what is stuck in it, or collect tissue samples for later review.
Why do you need a laryngoscopy?
A laryngoscope is mainly to help you speak, breathe, and swallow. It is at the back of your throat, on top of the trachea or trachea. It accommodates your vocal cords and vibrates and makes a sound when you speak.
A laryngoscope can detect abnormalities in the vocal cords or the larynx above or below the vocal cords, including papilloma, nodules, cysts, polyps, fibrous webs, or other lumps. In some cases, it can also help with tissue biopsy to confirm suspicious laryngeal cancer or assess the severity of diagnosed cancer. It can also help diagnose the cause of persistent cough, hoarseness, sore throat, or altered voice. A flexible laryngoscope can be performed while the patient is reading, speaking, or singing to visualize the voice box during specific voice-related tasks.
