Laryngoscopy is a medical procedure done to visualize your vocal cords. These tissues are vital for ordinary breathing and speech, and can be affected by conditions such as laryngitis. A laryngoscopy is used to determine the causes of some speech and breathing difficulties.
There are two types of laryngoscopies that can be performed: direct and indirect laryngoscopy. Direct laryngoscopy is usually performed in the operating room under general anesthesia. Indirect laryngoscopy is the more commonly-performed procedure, done in the office setting. An indirect laryngoscopy serves the same purpose as a direct laryngoscopy and can be done with a mirror inserted in the back of the mouth, but is done more often by an endoscope connected to a camera to view and record the exam.
