My husband’s horse has been diagnosed with laryngeal hemiplegia aka roaring. We’re currentky looking into surgery options and wondering if anyone else has any experience with this. If so did your horse return to full performance? We are looking at the tieback surgery and also at the full removal. Neither one seems to be a great option. I would take any advice from anybody who has dealt with this.

  it depends on what grade he is. My mare had the ventriculectomy. She was mild but needed surgery. She is 1d. I know a few others who had tie back and had great success. It could be something that may need to be repeated years down the road though. Like I said depending on severity. I think with tie back too your horse has to adjust to eating different since they have to swallow differently. They could get aspiration pneumonia or have swallowing difficulties. So if your horse hounds his feed I'd make sure he eats from a dish that slows his eating rate... Also some may cough more.

Thank you! His severity is right in the middle. When we sent the scope to Purdue University, the surgeon suggested tieback. He’s supposed to be one of the best surgeons for it so we’ll see.

My gelding has tie back surgery probably three years ago on just one side. He is still running his heart out and competing at top level. However is not a horse you can just pull out of the field and run, he has to be keep in shape and warmed up for a good 20 mins before running. I run him on Wind Aid and the nose strips.
