Vocal folds are commonly known as vocal cords or vocal reeds. Vocal folds consists of two folding’s of mucous membrane horizontally across the larynx. They vibrate the air that expelled from the lungs during phonation. These folds are controlled by vagus nerve.
The vocal folds are two elastic bands of muscle tissue located in the larynx (voice box) directly above the trachea (windpipe). Vocal fold paralysis may be caused by injury to the head, neck, or chest; lung or thyroid cancer; tumors of the skull base, neck, or chest; or infection (for example, Lyme disease).
