Rehabilitation Protocol for Unilateral Laryngeal and Lingual Paralysis (Tapia Syndrome): Comment About "A Challenging Case of Tapia Syndrome After Total Thyroidectomy" By Ildem Deveci, Mehmet Surmeli, and Reyhan Surmeli.

Abstract

Tapia syndrome is a rare complication after surgery, with ipsilateral paralysis of vocal cord and tongue due to extracranial involvement of recurrent laryngeal and hypoglossal nerves. Tapia's case report is extremely interesting for both the rarity of the reported cases and for the importance of an early rehabilitation. In a previous work, we reported a case of Tapia syndrome after cardiac surgery for aortic aneurysm, and the protocol of logopedic rehabilitation adopted. In the postoperative period, he developed severe dyspnea and dysphagia that required a tracheostomy and a logopedic rehabilitation therapy that led to a fast and efficient swallowing without aspiration after 47 sessions (less than 4 months). The progressive recovery of the function suggests aprassic nerve damage. However, the logopedic therapy is recommended to limit the possibility of permanent functional deficits and quickly recover swallowing and phonation.
