produced by the three adductors physiologically is sequentially as following: Rotation effect by lateral cricoarytenoid (LCA), mass or volume effect by thyroarytenoid (TA) and then shift effect by interarytenoid (IA) muscle.
Otolaryngologists, voice specialists, surgeons, speech-language pathologists, and others from the US, Europe, and Asia use cases and color photos and b&w drawings to illustrate normal vocal folds

When the nerve is partially injured, paresis or weakness of the vocal fold
In 50 patients for whom 12-month vocal function data were available, significant improvement was seen in the voice handicap index; the abbreviated voice handicap index-10; maximum phonation time, which measures respiratory and sound control by having the patient hold an "ah" for as long as possible; and the S/Z ratio, an assessment of open and closed vocal fold
sounds based on how long a patient can sustain a soft "sss" sound and soft "zzz" sound.
