2017 Fall Voice Webinar Series

Session #3
Date: Tuesday, September 26, 2017
Speaker: Albert Merati, MD - Professor and Chief, Laryngology - University of Washington School of Medicine
Topic: Paradoxical Vocal Fold Motion Disorder: Fundamentals and Philosophy of Management
Paradoxical Vocal Fold Motion disorder, which many refer to as "VCD", continues to be a vexing, complex and frustrating problem for our patients and partner MDs and SLPs. In this webinar, the assembled panel of SLPs and MDs will review the fundamentals of diagnosis and management of PVFMD as well as delving in to options for challenging cases that may not respond to initial treatment. What do we do when therapy isn’t effective? What is the true underlying cause of this problem? Why does this disorder have such a dramatic female preponderance in the adolescent/young adult patient population? Botox? Surgery? These questions and more will be discussed during this lively, interactive seminar.

Milan Amin, MD - Director, NYU Langone Voice Center
Laura Matrka, MD - Assistant Professor, Ohio State University
Mary Sandage, PhD, CCC-SLP - Assistant Professor, Auburn University
