Composition of the extracellular matrix in human cricoarytenoid joint articular cartilage. (1/34)

The extracellular matrix of the human cricoarytenoid joint articular cartilage is involved in different pathological changes. Interestingly, in contrast to the limb joints, the extracellular matrix composition of the healthy cricoarytenoid joint articular cartilage has not yet been elucidated except by some light microscopical investigations. The present study investigates the extracellular matrix components of the cricoarytenoid joint articular cartilage by means of light microscopy, immunohistochemistry, transmission electron microscopy and scanning electron microscopy and compares them with the limb joints for a better understanding of their involvement in joint disease. Chondrocytes near the joint surface of the cricoid and arytenoid cartilage differ from chondrocytes of deeper cartilage layers. The extracellular matrix of the articular cartilage contains chondroitin-4-sulfate, chondroitin-6-sulfate and keratansulfate as well as collagen types II, III, VI, IX and XI. Type-III-collagen shows a special distribution throughout the joint cartilage. In deeper cartilage layers, type-III-collagen occurs only pericellularly; in higher cartilage layers type-III-collagen is also located territorially and interterritorialy in small amounts. Scanning and transmission electron microscopy have revealed the articular surface of the cricoid and arytenoid cartilage to consist of a network of irregularly organized collagen fibrils, which are lined by a layer of electron dense material. The network coats subjacent collagen bundles which descend obliquely downward and intermingle at right angles in the middle part of the articular cartilage with collagen bundles of the deeper cartilage zones. The articular cartilage surface shows structural characteristics which differ from the underlying cartilage. The superficial electron dense layer possibly plays a role in the lubrication of the articular cartilage surface. The alignment of the fibrillar structures in the articular cartilage of the cricoarytenoid joint varies from those of the limb joints based on the different strain occurring during arytenoid movement. Nevertheless, the human cricoarytenoid joint articular cartilage can be compared with the joints of the limbs despite its extracellular matrix composition and its involvement in joint pathology. Evidence of type III collagen in the outermost layer of the articular cartilage of the cricoarytenoid joint presents a peculiarity, which has yet not be demonstrated in the articular cartilage of limb joints.  (+info)

New insights into the pathomechanism of postintubation arytenoid subluxation. (2/34)

BACKGROUND: Impaired movement of the cricoarytenoid joint with hoarseness and immobility of the vocal ligament can occur as a consequence of endotracheal intubation. The biomechanics and pathomechanism of cricoarytenoid subluxation have not been demonstrated to date. METHODS: The present study attempts to simulate the trauma that has been associated with arytenoid cartilage subluxation in intubation trials on 37 unfixed larynges in cadavers from persons aged 25 to 89 years. Larynges were intubated or extubated according to former conceptions of arytenoid subluxation, which assume that the arytenoid tip enters the lumen of the tracheal tube, or that a deflection of the arytenoid occurs during withdrawal of the endotracheal tube with the cuff of the tube only partially deflated. Also, manual attempts were carried out to subluxate the arytenoid cartilage. Subsequently after dissecting the left and right cricoarytenoid joint from each larynx, the morphologic changes induced experimentally were analyzed using gross microscopic and histologic methods. RESULTS: Within the scope of the experiment, it proved impossible to produce any subluxation of a cricoarytenoid joint. Histologic analysis revealed injuries of synovial folds, joint-surface impressions of the articular cartilage, and fractures in the area of the subchondral bone in some joints. CONCLUSIONS: Based on the morphologic results, it was concluded that intubation trauma of the cricoarytenoid joint does not cause subluxation per se, but rather that formation of a hemarthros or fractures of the joint bodies lead to fixation of the joint surfaces in an abnormal position. Subsequent ankylosis may occur.  (+info)

Slow tonic muscle fibers in the thyroarytenoid muscles of human vocal folds; a possible specialization for speech. (3/34)

Most of the sounds of human speech are produced by vibration of the vocal folds, yet the biomechanics and control of these vibrations are poorly understood. In this study the muscle within the vocal fold, the thyroarytenoid muscle (TA), was examined for the presence and distribution of slow tonic muscle fibers (STF), a rare muscle fiber type with unique contraction properties. Nine human TAs were frozen and serially sectioned in the frontal plane. The presence and distribution pattern of STF in each TA were examined by immunofluorescence microscopy using the monoclonal antibodies (mAb) ALD-19 and ALD-58 which react with the slow tonic myosin heavy chain (MyHC) isoform. In addition, TA muscle samples from adjacent frozen sections were also examined for slow tonic MyHC isoform by electrophoretic immunoblotting. STF were detected in all nine TAs and the presence of slow tonic MyHC isoform was confirmed in the immunoblots. The STF were distributed predominantly in the medial aspect of the TA, a distinct muscle compartment called the vocalis which is the vibrating part of the vocal fold. STF do not contract with a twitch like most muscle fibers, instead, their contractions are prolonged, stable, precisely controlled, and fatigue resistant. The human voice is characterized by a stable sound with a wide frequency spectrum that can be precisely modulated and the STF may contribute to this ability. At present, the evidence suggests that STF are not presented in the vocal folds of other mammals (including other primates), therefore STF may be a unique human specialization for speech.  (+info)

Osteoarthritis in cricoarytenoid joint. (4/34)

OBJECTIVE: Occurrence of osteoarthritis is a frequent event of limb joints in people over 40 years of age. The human cricoarytenoid joint is comparable with the joints of the limbs despite its structure and extracellular matrix composition. To date, little is known about the occurrence of osteoarthritis in the human cricoarytenoid joint. METHODS: Sixty-eight cricoarytenoid joints (42 male and 26 female, age 25-98 years) were analysed by means of histology, lectin histochemistry, immunohistochemistry as well as scanning and transmission electron microscopy. RESULTS: About 50% of the investigated cricoarytenoid joints aged over 40 years show degenerative changes in their joint surface structure at varying levels of intensity. The articular cartilage surface is fibrillated in some places and sometimes shows fissures. A demascing of collagen fibrils next to the joint surface and a loss of proteoglycans in the upper cartilage layers can be observed. Chondrocytes near the joint surface appear as voluminous chondrocyte clusters. The clusters and the superficial cartilage layer show a positive reaction to type VI collagen antibodies. The distribution patterns of lectins are completely changed in fibrillated cartilage areas. CONCLUSION: Degenerative alterations in diarthrodial joints resembling osteoarthritis can occur in the joints of the larynx. These structural changes of the articular cartilage are comparable to osteoarthritis of the limb joints. Osteoarthritis in the cricoarytenoid joint may lead to impaired movements of the arytenoid cartilages. Functionally the structural changes may lead to negative consequences during vocal production, such as impaired vocal quality and reduced vocal intensity.  (+info)

Active upper airway closure during induced central apneas in lambs is complete at the laryngeal level only. (5/34)

We tested the hypotheses that active upper airway closure during induced central apneas in nonsedated lambs 1). is complete and occurs at the laryngeal level and 2). is not due to stimulation of the superior laryngeal nerves (SLN). Five newborn lambs were surgically instrumented to record thyroarytenoid (TA) muscle (glottal constrictor) electromyographic (EMG) activity with supra- and subglottal pressures. Hypocapnic and nonhypocapnic central apneas were induced before and after SLN sectioning in the five lambs. A total of 174 apneas were induced, 116 before and 58 after sectioning of the internal branch of the SLN (iSLN). Continuous TA EMG activity was observed in 88% of apneas before iSLN section and in 87% of apneas after iSLN section. A transglottal pressure different from zero was observed in all apneas with TA EMG activity, with a mean subglottal pressure of 4.3 +/- 0.8 cmH2O before and 4.7 +/- 0.7 cmH2O after iSLN section. Supraglottal pressure was consistently atmospheric. Sectioning of both iSLNs had no effects on the results. We conclude that upper airway closure during induced central apneas in lambs is active, complete, and occurs at the glottal level only. Consequently, a positive subglottal pressure is maintained throughout the apnea. Finally, this complete active glottal closure is independent from laryngeal afferent innervation.  (+info)

Muscle fiber type composition and effects of vocal fold immobilization on the two compartments of the human posterior cricoarytenoid: a case study of four patients. (6/34)

The human posterior cricoarytenoid (PCA) muscle is divided into two compartments, the vertical and horizontal bellies, which contain differences in their myosin heavy chain (MyHC) composition. Using immunohistochemical techniques on whole PCA samples, this study provides a more thorough description of the fiber type composition of entire bellies of the PCA. Four patients provided complete PCA samples containing both compartments of their right and left sides; two with unilaterally immobilized vocal folds. The horizontal belly had 80% slow (type I) fibers and 20% fast (type II) fibers. The vertical belly contained equal amounts of slow and fast fibers (approximately 55%:45%); clearly distinguishing between two compartments. Atrophy of muscle fibers and fiber type grouping were also present in both normal and affected subjects; providing no clear confirmation of the clinical findings of vocal fold immobilization. Further study of the PCA muscle from patients with unilaterally immobilized vocal folds is needed.  (+info)

Staining of human thyroarytenoid muscle with myosin antibodies reveals some unique extrafusal fibers, but no muscle spindles. (7/34)

This study describes the myosin composition of extrafusal and intrafusal muscle fibers found in the human thyroarytenoid (TA) and sternohyoid (control) muscles. We sought to determine the presence of muscle spindles in the TA muscle, and to identify unusual extrafusal fiber types, using the commonly accepted approach of tissue staining with myosin isoform specific antibodies. Extrafusal fibers are organized into motor units, which subsequently produce muscle movement, whereas intrafusal fibers compose muscle spindles, the primary stretch receptor that provides afferent (feed back) information to the nervous system for regulation of motor unit length and tonicity. Immunohistochemical identification of muscle spindles was confirmed in sternohyoid, but not in TA samples; however, some extrafusal fibers contained tonic myosin. These results indicate that human TA muscle functions similar to some mammalian extraocular muscle, performing unloaded (non-weight bearing) contractions without afferent information from native muscle spindles.  (+info)

Abnormal movement of the arytenoid region as a cause of upper airway obstruction. (8/34)

A 75 year old woman presented with a three week history of severe dyspnoea and cough. Auscultation and spirometry suggested extrathoracic inspiratory airway obstruction, and bronchoscopy showed abnormal motion of the arytenoid region (supraglottic area), causing upper airway obstruction only during forced inspiratory efforts. Sedatives improved the symptoms within a week. It is suggested that reversible malfunction of the arytenoid region can be responsible for upper airway obstruction.  (+info)

The laryngeal cartilages are hyaline cartilages, with the exception of the epiglottis and vocal process of the arytenoid, which are fibroelastic cartilages.5,6 Hyaline cartilages undergo changes with time, with progressive enchondral ossification.7,8 Histopathologic studies demonstrated that the stage of the calcification and ossification is widely affected by age.9 The order of ossification is affected by the distribution of the mechanical forces applied to the laryngeal cartilages.8 Ossification begins first in the superior border of the lamina in the cricoid cartilage followed by the apex, body, and muscular process of the arytenoid cartilage, with the exception of the vocal process.10,11 Our aim was not to elucidate the pattern in which arytenoid ossification progresses, but we agree with the previously published observation that ossification initially occurs in the lateral one-third of the arytenoids peripherally and progresses to involve the center afterward.10,11 This is in concordance ...
Arytenoid adduction is a surgical procedure used to treat vocal cord paralysis. A suture is used to emulate the action of the lateral cricoarytenoid muscle and position the paralyzed vocal cord closer to the midline. This allows the two vocal cords to meet and can improve speaking and swallowing ability for affected patients. Arytenoid adduction is often performed in conjunction with medialization thyroplasty. One of the key functions of the larynx is phonation, the production of sound. Phonation requires the vocal cords to be adducted (positioned towards the midline) so that they can meet and vibrate together as air is expelled between them. Physiologically, the glottis is closed by intrinsic laryngeal muscles such as the lateral cricoarytenoid, thyroarytenoid, and interarytenoid muscles. These muscles act on the arytenoid cartilages at the posterior ends of the vocal cords and are innervated by the left and right recurrent laryngeal nerves. Damage to these nerves results in vocal cord ...
In Figure 2, the endoscopic images correspond to the 20 year-old horse with a cough and exercise intolerance. Notice the airway (green arrow) is significantly reduced compared to the "normal horse" in Figure 1. The clinically relevant anatomy includes the arytenoid cartilage (blue stars), vocal cords (red cross), and the laryngeal cicatrix (yellow arrows). In this horse, the arytenoid cartilage is thicker than normal and the vocal cords are adhered to each other. In addition, a thick scar or cicatrix has developed between the arytenoid cartilage and the epiglottis. Hence, the cause for the recurrent cough and exercise intolerance is due to a significant reduction in the airway at the level of the larynx. The airway reduction is caused by the narrowing of the laryngeal opening due to cicatrix formation between the arytenoid cartilage and between the vocal cords ...

Objectives: The aim is; laryngeal conservative surgery indications and to help conservation surgery rates to increase, by comparing preoperative vocal fold and arytenoid movements with postoperative histopathologic examinations in carcinoma of the larynx and hypopharynx. Material and method: 30 patients with laryngeal carcinomas evaluated for preoperative vocal fold and arytenoid movements were included into our study. The movements of vocal folds and arytenoids were defined clinically as mobile, fixed or limited. Postoperatively, the laryngeal specimens were divided into subglottic, glottic and supraglottic areas and fixed with formaldehit and evaluated with a pathologist. The involvement of thyroarytenoid muscle, posterior cricoarytenoid muscle, cricoarytenoid joint, paraglottic area, conus elasticus, arytenoid cartilage were investigated. Results: In cases with limited movement of vocal fold and arytenoid movements preoperatively, the rate of thyroarytenoid muscle involvement was 33.3% (2/6), ...
The larynx consists of a cartilaginous framework comprising the single thyroid, cricoid, and epiglottic cartilages and the paired arytenoid, corniculate, and cuneiform cartilages. The larynx is suspended from the hyoid bone by the thyrohyoid membrane. The vocal folds run from the angle formed by the thyroid lamina anteriorly to the vocal process of the arytenoid cartilages posteriorly. Alteration in the position and length of the vocal folds is primarily the result of movement of the synovial cricoarytenoid joints, with a contribution from movement of the cricothyroid joints. Above the vocal folds run the false cords, formed by the medial border of the aryepiglottic folds. These are separated from the vocal folds by horizontal sinus known as the laryngeal ventricle, which contains numerous mucin-secreting glands. ...
This common problem is worst with small bougies, such as in this paediatric example of a child with severe burns and a difficult airway. The bevel of the ETT allows the tip of the tube to stick out right (laterally) of the bougie and snag on the right arytenoid cartilage. This can be remedied by withdrawing the ETT slightly (to disengage it from the arytenoid), effecting a one-quarter counter-clockwise rotation of the ETT on the bougie (bringing the bevel and tip of the ETT into a superior midline position snug with the bougie), and then advancing again.. ...

Resection of the arytenoid cartilage had been performed through an open-neck approach since early 1900s [8,14-18]. In 1948, Thornell [19] described the first endolaryngeal arytenoidectomy through the endoscopic approach. His technique later became the most widely accepted strategy for endoscopic arytenoidectomy. A temporary tracheostomy was used in the early perioperative period with his approach. The glottis is widened by partial mucosal resection over the arytenoid area extending into the aryepiglottic fold. This technique, along with its various modifications [14,20], demonstrated good results in terms of ventilatory improvement in patients with BVFP [21]. Arytenoidectomy was further advanced by application of lasers in surgery. The major advantage of using the CO2 laser include the precision of laser incision, the capacity to maintain hemostasis, and decreased postoperative edema [22,23]. In 1983, Ossoff et al. [24] first described the total arytenoidectomy procedure using the CO2 laser ...
The laryngeal functions are to regulate airflow, voice production and prevent inhalation of food. If the intrinsic muscles and/or the nerve supply of the larynx are not normal, laryngeal function is not normal. The cricoarytenoideus dorsalis muscle abducts the arytenoid cartilages at each inspiration. The laryngeal recurrent nerve innervates this muscle. Lesions to the laryngeal recurrent nerve, or to the cricoarytenoideus dorsalis muscle, result in laryngeal paralysis in dogs and cats. Laryngeal paralysis can be unilateral or bilateral. Medical treatment is necessary in an emergency situation; however, surgery is the definitive treatment. Laryngeal surgery is directed at removing or repositioning laryngeal cartilages that obstruct the rima glottidis. The four currently recognized surgical procedures used to correct laryngeal paralysis are: 1) unilateral or bilateral arytenoid cartilage lateralization; 2) ventricular cordectomy and partial arytenoidectomy via the oral or ventral laryngotomy ...

Osteoarthritis, sometimes called OA, degeneration or wear and tear is the progressive loss of a joints articular cartilage, this causes the joint to become stiff and painful. Articular cartilage creates a smooth protective covering over the ends of our bones so that we can move our joints freely without friction. Articular cartilage is only a few millimeters thick, over the years it can become worn away and the joint can become painful, this is osteoarthritis ...

Looking for online definition of cricoarytenoid in the Medical Dictionary? cricoarytenoid explanation free. What is cricoarytenoid? Meaning of cricoarytenoid medical term. What does cricoarytenoid mean?
The wall of the larynx is supported by four cartilages namely a thyroid cartilage, a cricoid cartilage a pair of arytenoid cartilages. Thyroid cartilage is in the form of a broad ring, lying in the ventral and lateral walls of the pharynx. This cartilage is incomplete dorsally. The lower ring - like cartilage is cricoid which is broad dorsally and narrow ventrally. The arytenoids are present at the anterior end of dorsal side of cricoid. There is also a pair of small nodules called the cartilages of santorini present at the apex of arytenoid. Trachea The larynx opens into trachea or wind pipe that runs along the length of neck, ventral to the oesophagus. The trachea enters into the thoracic cavity and divided into two branches called Bronchi. The trachea and bronchi are supported by incomplete cartilaginous rings called tracheal rings. Each bronchus enters into the lung of its side. The bronchus is further divided into small branches called bronchioles within the lung. Each bronchiole divides ...
Laryngoplasty describes a surgery which changes the shape or configuration of the larynx and vocal folds. In most cases, the operation is used to reposition a paralyzed vocal fold to a position that is better for voice production, known as medialization laryngoplasty. This may involve placement of an implant and/or sutures to readjust the position of laryngeal cartilages. Laryngoplasty usually requires a skin incision in the neck. The size and location of this incision depends on the type and extent of laryngoplasty being performed.. A variety of implantable materials are available for laryngoplasty, including silicone, Gore-Tex™, and a substance called calcium hydroxylapatite. None has a clear advantage over another, but there are various considerations in implant selection. The advisability of repositioning certain cartilages (known as arytenoid adduction) and variations in technique are also debated among laryngologists. Both of these issues may be discussed with your surgeon.. Because the ...

True vocal cord paralysis signifies loss of active movement of the "true" vocal cord, or vocal fold, secondary to disruption of the motor innervation of the larynx. Disruption of innervation may occur along the length of the recurrent laryngeal nerves and the vagi and may include damage to the motor nuclei of the vagus. It should be differentiated from fixation of the vocal cord secondary to direct infiltration of the vocal fold, larynx, or laryngeal muscles. It should also be distinguished from fixation at the cricoarytenoid joint, encountered with rheumatoid arthritis or following traumatic intubation. ...
Laryngeal Paralysis is a condition in which the nerves and muscles that control the arytenoid cartilages (and so ultimately the vocal folds) become impaired in their function. During inspiration they open and during swallowing they close so impaired function leads to an increased risk of aspiration of food when eating and an inability to fully oxygenate when exercising.. It is usually an acquired disease but can be congenital, and is usually seen in large breed dogs such as Labs, Golden Retrievers, Newfies, and St Bernards. The cause is often unknown and more recently it is being associated with a more generalized degenerative neuromuscular disorder meaning that more than just the patients breathing is affected. Patients with Laryngeal Paralysis are often older, have voice changes (hoarse bark), decreased exercise tolerance, noisy breathing, particularly on inspiration, and a cough or gag after swallowing or drinking water. A definitive diagnosis requires direct visualization of the larynx ...
The laryngeal functions are to regulate airflow, voice production and prevent inhalation of food. If the intrinsic muscles and/or the nerve supply of the larynx are not normal laryngeal function is not normal.. The cricoarytenoideus dorsalis muscle abducts the arytenoid cartilages at each inspiration. The laryngeal recurrent nerve innervates this muscle. Lesions to the laryngeal recurrent nerve or to the cricoarytenoideus dorsalis muscle result in laryngeal paralysis in dogs and cats. Laryngeal paralysis can be unilateral or bilateral. ETIOLOGY. Congenital and acquired forms of laryngeal paralysis have been recognized in dogs and cats.. Congenital Laryngeal Paralysis. Congenital laryngeal paralysis has been reported in Bouvier des Flandres, bull terrier, Dalmatian, Rottweiler and Huskies.

Fourth-year students on morning rounds in the large animal hospital last Friday had an opportunity to see acupuncture in action. Dr. Jacob Mecham was treating a horse with a paralyzed arytenoid cartilage in her larynx by placing acupuncture needles in her neck. Student Melissa Flora helped by reading a list of designated locations from a treatment protocol to Dr. Mecham as he moved around the horse carefully twirling the needles into place.. Students Sarah Tremper and Whitney Madigan managed the scope that Dr. Mecham had inserted through the horses nose to view the larynx on a screen. "What was really neat about it is that they were running the endoscope so we could visualize the larynx while the acupuncture was happening to look for any immediate changes," says Flora.. The treatment protocol was the result of a study done by Dr. Shen Huisheng Xie of the Chi Institute where Dr. Mecham received his acupuncture training. Dr. Mecham recently completed 130 hours of lectures and labs, and passed a ...

Introduction. It is the authors opinion that the incidence of laryngeal paralysis (LP) is higher than commonly perceived. This is mainly a result of incorrect diagnosis because of a failure to recognise the typical clinical signs. The authors experience has shown that many cases that are correctly diagnosed are given an improper grave prognosis. New findings regarding idiopathic LP make the disease progression and response to therapy easier to comprehend (Stanley et al. 2010). Adaptations of the surgical techniques and the use of the unilateral arytenoid lateralisation drastically decreased the associated complications (MacPhail & Monnet 2001; White 1989).. The aim of this article is to sensitise the reader to the clinical signs and treatment options for LP. An update will also be given on the laryngeal anatomy, aetiology and the diagnosis of LP in dogs. The most commonly encountered complications are also discussed.. Anatomy. The larynx is a semi-rigid organ composed mainly of hyaline ...

The median cricothyroid ligament is a flat band of white connective tissue that connects the front parts of the contiguous margins of the cricoid and thyroid cartilages. It is a thick and strong ligament, narrow above and broad below. Each lateral ligament is known as the conus elasticus. The lateral cricothyroid ligament is overlapped on either side by laryngeal muscles. The conus elasticus (which means elastic cone in Latin) is the lateral portion of the cricothyroid ligament. The lateral portions are thinner and lie close under the mucous membrane of the larynx; they extend from the upper border of the cricoid cartilage to the lower margin of the vocal ligaments, with which they are continuous. The vocal ligaments may therefore be regarded as the free borders of each conus elasticus, and extend from the vocal processes of the arytenoid cartilages to the angle of the thyroid cartilage about midway between its upper and lower borders. These anatomical structure have been called in many ...
Laryngeal Electromyography (LEMG) is a diagnostic test commonly used in patients with vocal fold movement disorder The aim of this study is to describe LEMG in patients with vocalfold immobility. A total of 55 dysphonic patients with vocal fold immobility diagnosed by laryngeal endoscopy were grouped according to probable clinical cause: 1) unknown; 2) traumatic; or 3) tumoral compression. They were submitted to LEMG by percutaneous insertion of concentric needle electrode. LEMG was conclusive in all patients and showed a majority with peripheral nerve injury. LEMG diagnosed peripheral nerve damage in 25 group 1, 12 group 2, and 11 group 3 patients. LEMG was normal in 4 patients, suggesting cricoarytenoid joint fixation. Central nervous system disorders was suggested in 2 and myopathic pattern in 1. As the major cause of vocal fold immobility is peripheral nerve damage, LEMG is an important test to confirm diagnosis ...
Rapid technological innovation, a growing interest in voice care, and evolving scientific discovery have helped catalyze rapid advances in the surgical care of voice patients. In this article, I will review new and emerging technologies in voice management from the perspective of the otolaryngologist. Advances include improved methods for visualizing the larynx, newer light applications that hold promise for early stage detection and monitoring of epithelial disease, and office-based methods for performing biopsies and physiological testing. In addition, I will review newer treatment options such as lasers, vocal fold injectables, and minimally invasive techniques for manipulating the arytenoid. Finally, I will present new frontiers in research for patients with lamina propria disease. Speech-language pathologists must be aware of new technologies as they emerge to assure the best possible care of voice patients.. ...

Many of the signs of vocal cord paralysis we appreciate today on CT and MR studies were first described with laryngography (1-3). These include atrophy of the thyroarytenoid muscle, deviation of the arytenoid muscle, enlargement of the ventricle and piriform sinus on the side of the paralysis, and a paramedian position of the involved vocal cord. As we determined, an additional CT and MR feature of vocal cord paralysis is atrophy of the PCA muscle.. Atrophy of the PCA and thyroarytenoid muscles usually occurs as a result of recurrent laryngeal or vagal nerve palsy. Muscular atrophy consequent to a nerve palsy is referred to as denervation atrophy. Denervation atrophy has been documented on CT and MR studies in skeletal muscles as well as in muscles of the head and neck innervated by various cranial nerves, including the trigeminal (V), facial (VII), vagus (X), spinal accessory (XI), and hypoglossal (XII) nerves (6-8). Imaging criteria for the diagnosis of denervation atrophy include asymmetric ...
The functional organization of laryngeal motoneurons in the nucleus ambiguous (NA) was evaluated in adult male rats before and after recurrent laryngeal nerve section and reinnervation. Using retrograde double labeling techniques with fluorescent probes, we obtained the number and position of labeled neurons by using the Bioquant 3-D imaging system. Reinnervation was documented by electromyography. In nine control animals vector analysis revealed significant (p less than .05) separation of the posterior cricoarytenoid (PCA) muscle motoneurons and the thyroarytenoid and lateral cricoarytenoid (TA/LCA) muscle motoneurons. The PCA motoneurons were positioned ventromedially in the NA, and TA/LCA motoneurons were found dorsolaterally in the NA. Rostral-caudal separation was not significant. Electromyography revealed phasic electrical activity synchronous with respiration in the PCA, and activity synchronous with deglutition in the TA/LCA. In four animals surviving 15 weeks following recurrent laryngeal nerve
The anesthetic itself is thought to possibly decrease intrinsic laryngeal function. A recent study (JVIM 2002;16:524-528) confirmed that the use of doxapram hydrochloride (Dopram-V) to stimulate respiration accentuates intrinsic laryngeal motion. Changes in laryngeal function are therefore more obvious and dramatic in gross appearance after doxapram administration and the authors propose that it be used routinely as an aid in diagnosing laryngeal paralysis. Doxapram has few detrimental effects but is contraindicated in patients with hypertension, seizures, severe hypoxia, or increased intracranial pressure. During laryngoscopy, it is useful to have an assistant watch the animal and inform the person performing the procedure each time the animal inspires. The arytenoids and vocal folds should abduct with each inspiration. Sudden expiratory opening of the glottis as with coughing or sighing should not be confused with inspiratory abduction ...
Akihiro Suzuki, Asahikawa Medical College, Japan According to the manufacturers manual, the AWS tip position should be inserted posterior to the epiglottis, directly elevating it out of the way (Miller-type approach), whereas it is recommended that the Airtraq tip be placed in the vallecula for indirect lifting of the epiglottis (Macintosh-type approach). For the Airtraq, the Miller-type approach is also possible as an alternative. But for the AWS, there is no description of an alternative (Macintosh-type) approach. However, AWS intubation using a Macintosh-type approach failed in 12 of 15 attempts due to ETT impingement onto the epiglottis, whereas Airtraq intubation using the Miller type approach was successful in 15 of 15 attempts including 3 in which ETT impingement onto the arytenoid occurred, and this was easily solved by blade adjustment It seems the Airtraq may have an advantage over the AWS because it provides versatility during intubation; with the Airtraq, one can use both anterior ...

The patient is a 60 year old man who presented in 2009 with sore spots on the right palate for two years irritated by spicy food. His clinical history was significant for tobacco chewing for 28 years, predominately on the right side. He is also status post tonsillectomy for chronic tonisillitis in 2005. Physical exam showed an extensive, well-demarcated area of erythroplakia involving predominately the right side of the oral cavity and oropharynx. Specifically, the posterior third of the right hard palate and right soft palate (extending to the left soft palate but sparing the uvula), the entire right retromolar trigone, right anterior tonsillar pilar and the resected tonsillar bed were affected. The erythroplakia also extended on to the posterior floor of mouth, lateral tongue and up onto the lingual surface of the mandible posteriorly, all on the right side. Laryngoscopy identified another area of erythroplakia in the supraglottic larynx centered on the right posterior arytenoid. Abnormal ...
