The recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) intraoperative monitoring (IONM) provides a new functional dynamic that adds to visual identification of the RLN to optimize its intraoperative management. Intraoperative monitoring has been applied to the initial identification of the RLN. We now apply IONM to the identification of the nonrecurrent laryngeal nerve (NRLN) and provide electrophysiologic and anatomic parameters to facilitate this technique of neural identification for the NRLN, which is at increased risk of injury during thyroid surgery.
