New Audio & Video Exam of a Posterior Glottic Web Causing Noisy Breathing Posted!

A new video and audio examination of a patient with posterior glottic web after a traumatic and prolonged (2 week) intubation after a motor vehicle accident is posted. A posterior glottic web is a scar band that spans across the back aspect of one to the other vocal cord preventing it from opening fully. Such a restriction would restrict airflow resulting in "noisy" breathing as demonstrated in this sample.
