Thyroglossal duct cysts: sonographic appearances in adults. (1/120)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Previous reports have suggested that thyroglossal duct cysts (TDCs) appear on sonograms as well-defined cystic masses with thin walls and posterior enhancement. In our experience, however, TDCs have a variable sonographic appearance. We report our findings in 40 patients with TDCs and document the variability of sonographic patterns. METHODS: All patients in whom the diagnosis of TDC was made clinically (by at least two head and neck surgeons) and sonography detected a cystic mass related to the hyoid bone were included in this study. Sonograms of 40 patients with TDCs were reviewed. The features evaluated were the location, internal echogenicity, posterior enhancement, presence of septa, solid component, and fistulous tract. The echo pattern was not compared with the biopsy results. RESULTS: Four patterns of TDCs were identified: anechoic (28%), homogeneously hypoechoic with internal debris (18%), pseudosolid (28%), and heterogeneous (28%). The majority showed posterior enhancement (88%), were midline (63%), and infrahyoid in location (83%). Only half of all TDCs showed a typical thin wall. CONCLUSION: On sonograms, TDCs in adults are not simple cysts, as previously suggested, but have a complex pattern ranging from a typical anechoic to a pseudosolid appearance.  (+info)

Adult craniocervical and pharyngeal changes--a longitudinal cephalometric study between 22 and 42 years of age. Part I: Morphological craniocervical and hyoid bone changes. (2/120)

The purpose of this study was to investigate longitudinally, by cephalometric means, alterations in craniocervical morphology and hyoid bone position in adult males and females, in three different age groups at 10-year intervals, and to compare the changes between the two genders. The material consisted of three series of cephalograms of 26 males and 24 females with approximately a 10-year interval between each series. Alterations with increasing age in males and females included: 1 An increase in anterior and posterior facial height in both genders, a reduction in mandibular prognathism, and an increase in the mandibular plane angle in females only. 2 The hyoid bone assumed a more inferior position in relation to different skeletal structures for both sexes. 3 Head posture alterations were similar for the male and female group over time. The overall significant inter-sex changes over a 20-year period were a reduction in mandibular prognathism, an increase in the mandibular plane angle in females, and a more inferior position of the hyoid bone in males.  (+info)

Changes in airway and hyoid position in response to mandibular protrusion in subjects with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). (3/120)

This prospective clinical study examined the alterations in airway and hyoid position in response to mandibular advancement in subjects with mild and moderate obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Pairs of supine lateral skull radiographs were obtained for 13 female and 45 male, dentate Caucasians. In the first film, the teeth were in maximal intercuspation, while in the second the mandible was postured forwards into a position of maximum comfortable protrusion. Radiographs were traced and digitized, and the alterations in the pharyngeal airway and position of the hyoid were examined. Males and females were analysed separately. In males only, correlations were sought between the changes in hyoid and airway parameters, and the initial and differential radiographic measurements. In males, mean mandibular protrusion at the tip of the lower incisor was 5.3 mm, increasing its distance from the posterior pharyngeal wall by 6.9 mm (or 9 per cent). Movement of the hyoid showed extreme inter-subject variability, both in the amount and direction. In relation to the protruded lower jaw, the hyoid became closer to the gonion by 6.9 mm and to the mandibular plane by 4.3 mm. With respect to the upper face, a 1.3-mm upward and 1.1-mm forward repositioning was seen. The percentage alterations in airway dimensions matched or bettered the mandibular advancement. The minimum distances behind the soft palate and tongue improved by 1.0 and 0.8 mm, respectively. Despite their smaller faces, females frequently showed greater responses to mandibular protrusion than males. No cephalometric features could be identified which might indicate a favourable response of the airway to mandibular protrusion. Larger increments of hyoid movement were associated with an improved airway response, but the strength of the correlations was generally low.  (+info)

A cephalometric comparison of subjects with snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea. (4/120)

This prospective study analysed the upright lateral cephalometric radiographs of 115 dentate, Caucasian males. Forty-five subjects exhibited proven obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), 46 were simple snorers, and the remaining 24 subjects, who had no history of respiratory disease and did not snore, acted as controls. Radiographs were traced and digitized, and comparisons were made of the dento-skeletal, soft tissue, and oropharyngeal features of the three groups. Differences were also sought between the snoring and OSA subjects. Of the hard tissue measurements, only the cranial base angle and mandibular body length showed significant inter-group differences (P < 0.001 and P < 0.05, respectively). When the airway and associated structures were examined, both snorers and OSA subjects exhibited narrower airways, reduced oropharyngeal areas, shorter and thicker soft palates, and larger tongues than their control counterparts. Comparison of the two sleep disordered breathing groups showed no differences in any of the skeletal or dental variables examined. However in OSA subjects, the soft palate was larger and thicker (P < 0.05), both lingual and oropharyngeal areas were increased (P < 0.01 and P < 0.05, respectively) and the hyoid was further from the mandibular plane (P < 0.05). Thus, whilst the dento-skeletal patterns of snorers resembled those of subjects with OSA, some differences in soft tissue and hyoid orientation were apparent. There was not, however, a recognizable gradation in size of the airway and its associated structures from control through snoring to OSA subjects. This suggests that there may be a cephalometrically recognizable predisposition towards the development of sleep disordered breathing, but that this is only one facet of the condition.  (+info)

Surgical mandibular advancement and changes in uvuloglossopharyngeal morphology and head posture: a short- and long-term cephalometric study in males. (5/120)

The aim of the present study was to investigate, by means of an extensive cephalometric examination, the alterations which took place in hyoid bone position, head posture, position and morphology of the soft palate, and tongue and sagittal dimensions of the pharyngeal airway after mandibular advancement osteotomy for the correction of mandibular retrognathism. The sample consisted only of adult males who underwent mandibular advancement by bilateral sagittal ramus split osteotomy (BSRO) with rigid fixation. Profile cephalograms were obtained 1-3 days before surgery (20 subjects), and 6 months (20 subjects) and 3 years (19 subjects) after the surgery. Statistical evaluation was performed by paired Student's t-test and Pearson product moment correlation analysis. At the short-term follow-up, hyoid bone and vallecula assumed a more superior (AH perpendicular FH, AH perpendicular ML, AH perpendicular S, V perpendicular FH) and anterior position (AH-C3 Hor, V-C3), which was maintained at the long-term follow-up. The soft palate (NL/PM-U) became more upright at the short-term follow-up. The tongue demonstrated a transient increase in height (H perpendicular VT) and a less upright position (VT/FH) at the long-term observation. In addition, a more upright cervical spine (OPT/HOR, CVT/HOR) was recorded at the long-term follow-up. The pharyngeal airway space at the level of the oropharynx (U-MPW) and the retroglossal space at the base of the tongue (PASmin) showed an increase in the sagittal dimension at the short-term follow-up. Significant widening at the PASmin level was sustained at the long-term follow-up, indicating that mandibular advancement osteotomy could increase airway patency and be a treatment approach for sleep apnoea in selected patients.  (+info)

Surgical mandibular setback and changes in uvuloglossopharyngeal morphology and head posture: a short- and long-term cephalometric study in males. (6/120)

A detailed cephalometric analysis was conducted on a sample of 31 adult males who underwent correction of mandibular prognathism by mandibular setback osteotomy (BSRO) with rigid fixation to evaluate the changes in uvuloglossopharyngeal morphology, hyoid bone position and head posture. Lateral cephalograms were obtained 1-3 days prior to the operation and at standardized 6 months and 3 years post-operative follow-up. Statistical evaluation was performed by paired Student's t-test and Pearson product moment correlation analysis. Inferior position of the hyoid bone (AH perpendicular FH, AH perpendicular ML, AH perpendicular S) and valeculla (V perpendicular FH) was recorded at the 6-month follow-up, a transient finding as at 3 years almost complete recovery to their pre-surgical position was noted. No posterior displacement of the above structures (AH-C3 Hor, V-C3) was recorded. Soft palate length (pm-U) was increased and maintained at the long-term follow-up while its posture (NL/pm-U) became less upright. The tongue showed increased length (V-T) and sagittal area (TA) and a more upright posture (VT/FH) at the late follow-up. Increased contact length between tongue and the soft palate (CL) and less residual oropharyngeal area [area not occupied by soft tissues, (TA + SPA)/OPA] was found at the long-term follow-up. Craniocervical agulation (NSL/OPT, NSL/CVT) was increased indicating cervical hyperflexion at the 3-year follow-up. Reduction of the sagittal dimension of the oropharyngeal airway space (U-MPW) appeared at the first follow-up and was sustained at the longest follow-up which, in conjunction with the decrease in residual oropharyngeal area, could raise questions regarding airway patency after mandibular setback osteotomy.  (+info)

CT findings associated with Eagle syndrome. (7/120)

Eagle syndrome is an aggregate of symptoms caused by an elongated ossified styloid process, the cause of which remains unclear. This is a rare finding that often goes undetected in the absence of radiographic studies. In this case, we present the diagnostic CT and lateral view plain film radiography findings of a 39-year-old woman with clinical evidence of Eagle syndrome. Eagle syndrome can occur unilaterally or bilaterally and most frequently results in symptoms of dysphagia, headache, pain on rotation of the neck, pain on extension of the tongue, change in voice, and a sensation of hypersalivation (1, 2). We present rare and diagnostic radiographic evidence of this on both plain film radiographs and CT scans. Although well documented in otolaryngology literature and dentistry literature, this syndrome has not been reported in the radiology literature.  (+info)

Space-time pressure structure of pharyngo-esophageal segment during swallowing. (8/120)

We applied high-resolution manometry with spatiotemporal data interpolation and simultaneous videofluoroscopy to normal pharyngeal swallows to correlate specific features in the space-time intraluminal pressure structure with physiological events and normal deglutitive transsphincteric bolus flow to define normal biomechanical properties of the pharyngo-esophageal (PE) segment. Pressures were recorded by microperfused catheter, and the two-dimensional space-time data sets were plotted as isocontours. On these were superimposed bolus trajectories, anatomic segment movements, and hyo-laryngeal trajectories from concurrent videofluoroscopy. Correlation of the highly reproducible space-time-pressure structure with radiographic images confirmed that primary deglutitive PE segment functions (pressure profile, laryngeal elevation, axial sphincter motion, timing of relaxation, contraction) are accurately discernible from single isocontour pressure visualization. Pressure during bolus flow was highly dependent on axial location within PE segment and time instant. The intrabolus pressure domain, corresponding to the space-time region between bolus head and tail trajectories, demonstrated significant bolus volume dependence. High-resolution manometry accurately, comprehensively, and highly reproducibly depicts the PE segment space-time-pressure structure and specific physiological events related to upper esophageal sphincter opening and transsphincteric flow during normal swallowing. Intrabolus pressure variations are highly dependent on position within the PE segment and time.  (+info)

The hyoid bone is a small but important structure in the neck. If it is fractured, vertebral injuries can be seen as well. Injury Lawyer Ed Smith explains.
The sternohyoid muscle is a thin, narrow muscle attaching the hyoid bone to the sternum, one of the paired strap muscles of the infrahyoid muscles serving to depress the hyoid bone. It is innervated by the ansa cervicalis. The muscle arises from the posterior border of the medial end of the clavicle, the posterior sternoclavicular ligament, and the upper and posterior part of the manubrium sterni. Passing upward and medially, it is inserted by short tendinous fibers into the lower border of the body of the hyoid bone. ...
Splanchnocranium comes from neural crest cells and is either cartilage or replacement bone. Arch 1 forms the jaws and is called the mandibular arch. We will particularily study the articular which becomes the malleus of the ear in mammals and the quadrate which forms the incus. Arch 2 is the hyoid arch and we will see the hyomandibular become the collumella and then the stapes of the ear. The hyoid bone also remains as part of the hyoid bone of the larynx. Arches 3-5 are gill arches in fishes and also involved in jaw suspension.

Among the bones broken in Epsteins neck was the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adams apple. Such breaks can occur in those who hang themselves, particularly if they are older, according to forensics experts and studies on the subject. But they are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation, the experts said.... The office of New York Citys chief medical examiner, Barbara Sampson, completed an autopsy of Epsteins body Sunday.... The hyoid bone played a central role in a heated dispute last year over another high-profile death in New York, that of Eric Garner. A New York police officer was accused of using an improper chokehold while trying to arrest Garner and of causing his death. A police officers association claimed that an autopsy from Sampsons office found there was no break of Garners hyoid bone, and that this proved that the officer could not have strangled Garner and caused his death. This demonstrates conclusively that Mr. Garner did not die of strangulation of the ...
The mylohyoid muscle is flat and triangular, and is situated immediately above the anterior belly of the digastric muscle. It forms, with its fellow of the opposite side, a muscular floor for the cavity of the mouth. It arises from the whole length of the mylohyoid line of the mandible, extending from the symphysis in front to the last molar tooth behind. The posterior fibers pass medialward and slightly downward, to be inserted into the body of the hyoid bone. It thus belongs to the suprahyoid muscles. The middle and anterior fibers are inserted into a median fibrous raphé extending from the symphysis menti to the hyoid bone, where they joint at an angle with the fibers of the opposite muscle. This median raphé is sometimes absent; the fibers of the two muscles are then continuous. ...
Variations are numerous. The posterior belly may arise partly or entirely from the styloid process, or be connected by a slip to the middle or inferior constrictor; the anterior belly may be double or extra slips from this belly may pass to the jaw or Mylohyoideus or decussate with a similar slip on opposite side; anterior belly may be absent and posterior belly inserted into the middle of the jaw or hyoid bone. The tendon may pass in front, more rarely behind the Stylohoideus. The Mentohyoideus muscle passes from the body of hyoid bone to chin. ...
Stylohyoid muscle is a slender muscle that arises from the posterior surface of the styloid process of the temporal bone, inserts into the body of the hyoid bone. It shares the muscle innervation by the facial nerve, and functions to draw the hyoid bone backwards and elevate the tongue.
The pretracheal fascia is a portion of the structure of the human neck. It extends medially in front of the carotid vessels and assists in forming the carotid sheath. It is continued behind the depressor muscles of the hyoid bone, and, after enveloping the thyroid gland, is prolonged in front of the trachea to meet the corresponding layer of the opposite side. The pretracheal layer of the deep cervical fascia passes in front of the carotid sheath (i.e., common carotid artery, internal jugular vein and vagus) and in front of the cervical viscera (larynx, oesophagus and pharynx). Above, it is fixed to the hyoid bone, while below it is carried downward in front of the trachea and large vessels at the root of the neck, and ultimately blends with the fibrous pericardium. This layer is fused on either side with the prevertebral fascia, and with it completes the compartment containing the larynx and trachea, the thyroid gland, and the pharynx and esophagus. It encloses the thyroid and is responsible ...

TDC is the most common congenital cystic mass of the neck, occurring in up to 90% of cases.1 Approximately 80% of these cysts are located at or below the level of the hyoid bone.2 Clinically, TDC presents as a painless paramedian swelling or anterior neck mass that moves on protruding the tongue or swallowing, owing to attachment to the hyoid bone.. Ultrasound of a TDC usually shows a midline anechoic mass in the typical locations described above, with a thin outer wall. There may be a variable internal echo within the cyst, depending on content, predominantly owing to proteinaceous material rather than infection or inflammation.3. On CT scans, TDC appears as a well circumscribed, smooth-walled hypoattenuated mass along the course of embryologic thyroid migration (shown in Figure 5). Mean internal density measurements are typically less than 20 Hounsfield units. Increased density within a cyst may be the result of thicker, more viscous content, suggestive of prior infection.4 TDCs are usually ...

Continued From Above... Attachment points for the muscles of the head and neck are located on the exterior surfaces of the skull and allow for important movement like chewing, speech, and facial expressions. Teeth are rooted into deep sockets in the mandible and maxillary bones. The upper portions of the digestive and respiratory tracts are also housed within the hollow oral and nasal cavities of the skull.. Another important bone of the head and neck is the hyoid bone. The hyoid is closely associated with the skull but is a floating bone that does not form a joint with any other bone. It anchors muscles of the tongue and throat and holds open the larynx of the respiratory tract. The auditory ossicles (malleus, incus, and stapes) of each ear are also bones in the head separate from the skull. They form a bridge connecting the eardrum to the inner ear and function to transmit vibrations between these parts.. The 7 cervical vertebrae form the bones of the neck that support the skull and organs ...

The English name for this muscle is the muscle of the chest and the hyoid bone.

Random Act of Anatomy | Woodpeckers remarkable tongue - (1:27) From YT: Woodpeckers are famous for their highly protrusible tongues that can probe deeply into holes in trees for grubs. Heres the hyolingual apparatus of a red-bellied woodpecker (Melanerpes carolinus; OUVC 11522), a natural casualty that was provided to us for research from one of our wildlife rehab facility partners. As in most woodpeckers, the apparatus has such long hyoid bones that they wrap around the back of the skull and onto the top, reaching the right nostril in many species (but not quite in this one). Amazing! I was fiddling with this one for so long (its just so cool!) before deciding to make the video that I kind of wore out the mechanism...oops!WitmerLab YT channel Apr 3, 2019

From Much Ado About Everything:. CLEMENT MOTHERS, Sweet Fathers: the Neanderthals laid their dead in graves and covered them with flowers. This is certain, in all the ways that we can approve certainty. It is also possible to think that they sang, wordlessly, and danced, strangely, while they wept. They were, it continues to be possible to think, big sentimental artistic oafs, without the vocal apparatus, without the right shape of jaw, the right kind of teeth, lips, a tongue that did not loll and flex with the articulate power and grace of our later, superior tongues, without the refined larynx, without the properly extended throat, the almighty hyoid bone, perhaps even without the wish, for more articulate speech or abstract language, and the heaven and hell that ensues. (Because it does, and that is why we speak today of dignity.). Who will give sorrow words? Imagine the urge to express the profoundest thoughts-but not the right teeth, a leaden tongue from a bad dream. Who will give sorrow ...

Apparently its noticeable that I bite my teeth together when I sleep, and I should consider an occlusal splint (a mouthguard that prevents you from biting your teeth together when you sleep).

Khoomei. The Tuvan word khoomei refers not only to the overall practice of throat singing, but to one of the two core techniques. In the style khoomei, the singer produces a sustained pitch while modulating the sound by applying a slight and minutely controlled amount of tension to the larynx by engaging a pair of muscles lining the vocal tract. The sound produced is constricted and raspy relative to the open throated technique of choral or operatic singing. The singer often uses this style to create structural contrast between one verse and another, or to mark the chorus of a song; however, this is not always the case. Some songs are performed in their entirety in the khoomei voice and in others khoomei is entirely absent.. The singer can utilize the harmonic refraction of the vocal fundamental achieved in khoomei to produce polyphonic, melodic vocalizations. The singer sustains the tone while manipulating the pharynx, hyoid bone and the larynx in concert with one another in order to cause ...
Now DNA research suggests the Neanderthal had language too. A genetic marker for speech & language-- FOXP2-- has been found in Neanderthal bones. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21362048/ Other evidence for speech, such as a hyoid bone, a hypoglossal (tongue) muscle, & similar auditory sensitivity, exists. It is likely the Neanderthals did have language. In my opinion, they could not have survived for all those years without advanced communication of some sort. ...

Discovered by Zeresenay Alemseged in 2000 at Dikika in Ethiopa (Alemseged et al. 2006). This is a well-preserved 3.3 million year old partial skeleton of an approximately 3 year old Australopithecus afarensis child. The fossil consists of an almost complete skull, hyoid bone, limb fragments, rib fragments, collar bones (clavicles) and shoulder blades (scapulae), and some vertebrae. It is the most complete juvenile hominid skeleton known until Neandertal times. The bipedal features of other A. afarensis fossils are mostly found in this fossil, confirming that afarensis was bipedal. However, there is vigorous debate as to whether bipedalism was its primary method of locomotion, or whether it was combined with a significant amount of tree-climbing (arborealism). The features of Selams upper body tend to be apelike: the shoulder blade closely resembles that of a gorilla, the finger bones are curved as in chimpanzees, and the semicircular canals are more like those of chimps than humans. All these ...
