Additionally, research should be encouraged in muscle physiology, in areas such as the metabolic requirements of laryngeal muscles (16) and their fatigue resistance, (17)the relationships and functional implications of fast and slow-twitch fibers in laryngeal muscles, (18)and the applicability of sports medicine studies in exercise physiology to laryngeal habilitation and rehabilitation.
Furthermore, our study found that the closure of the glottal gap via injection laryngoplasty had a significant effect on decreasing laryngeal muscle tension.
The mainstay of treatment continues to be Botulinum injections into the laryngeal muscles. Botulinum treatment is not perfect, because there is an onset time characterized by a breathy voice and an offset time characterised by recurrence of symptoms.
Such finding corresponds with those reported by other authors, who also noted that SO and FOG fibers are predominant in human laryngeal muscles (Claasen and Werner, 1992; Guida & Zorzetto).
For example, Allen and colleagues used a small n research design to demonstrate experimental control of laryngeal muscle tension using sEMG to treat ventricular fold dysphonia (Watson, Allen, and Allen (1993).
(23) Atrophy of laryngeal muscles could lead to bowing of the vocal folds and weakness.
[98] The muscular patch has e advantage of selectively reinnervating the TA muscle, as compared with end-to-end anastomosis, in which synkinesis involving other laryngeal muscles may occur.
The demand placed on the intrinsic laryngeal muscles to manage subglottal pressure while dancing and singing is a particular type of overload.
Laryngeal muscle fibers differ microscopically from other skeletal muscle.

Phonation into a thin straw accomplishes automatically what laryngeal muscle action is supposed to accomplish in messa di voce: to separate (abduct) the vocal folds slightly during a crescendo.
In viewing the larynx in its natural position, the physician can assess changes in laryngeal muscle tension while the patient is talking or singing.
