Featured article: Adductor focal laryngeal Dystonia

"The results suggest that there is a strong correlation between subjects’ perception and clinicians’ assessment of the individual symptoms and the severity of the dysphonia and that voice arrests are infrequent in subjects with ongoing BoNT injections. The strong inter-clinician reliability further suggests that it is an appropriate measure for identifying symptoms and severity of adductor focal laryngeal dystonia."
