DELIN TRONCOSO, MS, CCC

Ms. Troncoso is a state-licensed and certified professional specially trained in Laryngeal Videostroboscopy, an endoscopic procedure for the evaluation of laryngeal function. We offer Laryngeal Videostroboscopy testing at the following offices:

What is a Laryngeal Videostroboscopy (LV)?

Laryngeal Videostroboscopy is a painless, office-based, state-of-the-art procedure that provides real-time visualization and digital documentation of upper airway and laryngeal anatomy and function. The procedure allows for a magnified examination of vocal fold movement and structures in what appears to be slow motion. Digital documentation is reviewed with the patient.

Who is a candidate for an LV?

Anyone who is experiencing intermittent or chronic voice problems such as:

  • Hoarseness, breathy or weak voice, vocal fatigue or strain, decreased or loss of vocal range.
  • Discomfort, tightness, pain while talking, or burning in the throat.
  • Sensation of “something in the throat.”
  • Feeling the need to clear the throat or cough frequently.
  • Symptoms caused by acid reflux such as throat clearing or constant feeling of thick phlegm in the throat.

How is an LV performed?

Videostroboscopy is performed with a small rigid or flexible fiber-optic instrument (about the diameter of an ink pen) that is held in the mouth allowing visualization and recording of the vocal cords and larynx (voice box).

  • It does NOT go down the throat.
  • The patient is asked to repeat a sound or word.
  • The examination is NOT painful and takes approximately 2-3 minutes.

What are the benefits of an LV?

  • Outpatient procedure.
  • Safe.
  • No pre-procedure preparation.
  • No post-procedure discomfort.
  • No companion needed.
  • Immediate results. The video is reviewed with the patient during the appointment.
  • Cost-effective.
