See ENT: The real question is: what is the etiology of the bilateral vocal cord paralysis? This is very severe and can lead to problems with speaking or getting enough air. An ENT evaluation to visualize the region may be necessary to look for structural anomalies or cancers. Ent specialists may also help with the symptoms by "pushing' the vocal cords closer together with pledgets of gelfoam.
