Answer

The outcome and prognosis of cricoarytenoid (CA) fixation depends entirely on the etiology. However, given the relative infrequency of this diagnosis, it is not surprising that the literature contains no reports of clinical outcomes from large series of patients grouped by specific etiology and treatment strategies.
