Peripherally, mechanoreceptors and chemoreceptors have been identified throughout the laryngeal mucosa, muscles, the trachea, and the lungs.
The inferior laryngeal nerve (ILN), a motor and sensory branch of the tenth cranial nerve or vagus nerve, provides the motor innervation for all the laryngeal intrinsic muscles with the exception of the cricothyroid muscle and the sensory innervation of the subglottic laryngeal mucosa. With respect to its origin, different in the right and left sides, the former at the base of the neck and the latter in the left superior mediastinum, the course it presents from these origins to its target organ is an upward one, hence its name recurrent.

Data recorded made a description of the aspect of the laryngeal mucosa, the affected VF, its position, description of the GG, and a description of the postoperative compensation.
During tracheal intubation, trauma, irritation and inflammation of the laryngeal mucosa are considered to be the responsible factors for the development of POST.17 In this study, we compared the effectiveness of local application of betamethasone gel and lidocaine gel on endotracheal tube during intubation in preventing post-operative sore throat (POST).
The primary presenting feature of a subglottic mass may be airway obstruction, and differentials for these masses should include primary neoplasms of the laryngeal mucosa such as adenoid cystic carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma, laryngeal chondrosarcoma, and metastasis from a distant primary tumor.
