Laryngeal Paralysis Tie Back Procedure

In dogs and cats with laryngeal paralysis, the muscles that normally pull the airway open do not function properly.  When an affected pet breathes in, the walls of the airway do not pull open instead, they are sucked into the opening, or in severe cases the airway can become completely closed off. 

In the tieback procedure, a suture is used to permanently pull the wall of the airway open on one side of the larynx.
