It originates inferior to the cricopharyngeal muscle and lateral to the longitudinal muscle of the gorge, and is closely related to the repeated vocal organ nerve (RLN). we have a tendency to report a case of KJD associate exceedingly|in a very} 78-year-old man treated with an open diverticulectomy with a nerve integrity monitor (NIM), and gift a comprehensive literature review. Our case supports the intimate relationship of the RLN to a KJD, and thus we have a tendency to advocate open diverticulectomy with the employment of a table game because the treatment of alternative for KJD to attenuate risk of injury to the RLN.
