Comparison of conventional surgical versus Seldinger technique emergency cricothyrotomy performed by inexperienced clinicians. (1/37)

BACKGROUND: Cricothyrotomy is the ultimate option for a patient with a life-threatening airway problem. METHODS: The authors compared the first-time performance of surgical (group 1) versus Seldinger technique (group 2) cricothyrotomy in cadavers. Intensive care unit physicians (n = 20) performed each procedure on two adult human cadavers. Methods were compared with regard to ease of use and anatomy of the neck of the cadaver. Times to location of the cricothyroid membrane, to tracheal puncture, and to the first ventilation were recorded. Each participant was allowed only one attempt per procedure. A pathologist dissected the neck of each patient and assessed correctness of position of the tube and any injury inflicted. Subjective assessment of technique and cadaver on a visual analog scale from 1 (easiest) to 5 (worst) was conducted by the performer. RESULTS: Age, height, and weight of the cadavers were not different. Subjective assessment of both methods (2.2 in group 1 vs. 2.4 in group 2) and anatomy of the cadavers (2.2 in group 1 vs. 2.4 in group 2) showed no statistically significant difference between both groups. Tracheal placement of the tube was achieved in 70% (n = 14) in group 1 versus 60% (n = 12) in group 2 (P value not significant). Five attempts in group 2 had to be aborted because of kinking of the guide wire. Time intervals (mean +/- SD) were from start to location of the cricothyroid membrane 7 +/- 9 s (group 1) versus 8 +/- 7s (group 2), to tracheal puncture 46 +/- 37s (group 1) versus 30 +/- 28s (group 2), and to first ventilation 102 +/- 42s (group 1) versus 100 +/- 46s (group 2) (P value not significant). CONCLUSIONS: The two methods showed equally poor performance.  (+info)

A series of thyroplasty cases under general anaesthesia. (2/37)

Thyroplasty is an operation on the upper airway to improve voice quality in patients with unilateral vocal cord paralysis. It requires access to an uninstrumented larynx and a functional assessment of vocal cord medialization. It is a difficult anaesthetic procedure that requires sharing the airway with the surgeon. We describe an anaesthetic technique to give good operating conditions and a safe airway, using total intravenous anaesthesia, a laryngeal mask airway and intraoperative fibreoptic endoscopic assessment of the larynx, and present a series of 13 patients. Other anaesthetic techniques for thyroplasty are described and discussed.  (+info)

Giant cell tumor of the larynx: a clinicopathologic series of eight cases and a review of the literature. (3/37)

True giant cell tumors of the larynx (GCTL) are quite rare, and only individual case reports are documented in the literature. Eight cases of GCTL were identified in the Otorhinolaryngic Pathology Tumor Registry between 1966 and 2000. There were 2 women and 6 men, ages 26 to 62 years (mean, 44.5 yrs). Patients presented with a palpable neck mass (n = 5), airway obstruction (n = 3), hoarseness (n = 3), and dysphagia (n = 2). All tumors involved the thyroid cartilage, a few with local extension. The mean tumor size was 4.1 cm. Histologically, the tumors showed no connection to the surface epithelium and arose in sites of ossification. The tumors had an expansile, infiltrative growth and consisted of numerous multinucleated osteoclast-like giant cells within a cellular stroma composed of plump, oval mononuclear cells. Of interest was that the nuclei of the giant cells were similar to the nuclei of the stromal cells. Treatment included biopsy only with adjuvant therapy (n = 2), local resection (n = 3), and total laryngectomy (n = 3). Follow-up showed 5 patients were alive without evidence of disease (mean follow-up, 6.9 yrs); 2 died of unrelated causes (mean survival, 22.2 yrs). No patients developed recurrences. GCTL are rare tumors that can cause significant airway obstruction. Complete surgical resection yields an excellent outcome without adjuvant therapy.  (+info)

Cricothyroidotomy for elective airway management in critically ill trauma patients with technically challenging neck anatomy. (4/37)

INTRODUCTION: To assess the value of elective cricothyroidotomy for airway management in critically ill trauma patients with technically challenging neck anatomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review of patients admitted to the Trauma Service at a Level I Trauma Center who underwent cricothyroidotomy for elective airway management over a 40-month period from January 1997 to April 2000. Comparison was made with a cohort of Trauma Service patients who received a tracheostomy. RESULTS: Eighteen patients met study criteria, and an unpaired t test revealed significance (P < 0.05) for age only. There was no difference with Injury Severity Score, number of days in the intensive care unit, number of days requiring ventilation post procedure or number of days intubated prior to procedure. The major difference was the more technically challenging neck anatomy in the patients undergoing cricothyroidotomy. Five out of 18 patients undergoing cricothyroidotomy died prior to discharge and two out of 18 died after discharge from complications unrelated to their airway. Two out of 18 patients undergoing tracheostomy died prior to discharge from complications unrelated to their airway. For a period of 1 week-15 months (average, 5.5 months), notes in subsequent clinic appointments were reviewed for subjective assessment of wound healing, breathing and swallowing difficulties, and voice changes. One patient with a cricothyroidotomy required silver nitrate to treat some granulation tissue. Otherwise, no complications were identified. Telephone interviews were conducted with eight of the 11 surviving cricothyroidotomy patients and nine of the 16 surviving tracheostomy patients. One tracheostomy patient required surgical closure 3 months after discharge; otherwise, the only noted change was minor voice changes in three patients in each group. All six of these patients denied that this compromised them in any way. CONCLUSION: Elective cricothyroidotomy has a low complication rate and is a reasonable, technically less demanding option in critically ill patients with challenging neck anatomy requiring a surgical airway.  (+info)

Relative contribution of various airway protective mechanisms to prevention of aspiration during swallowing. (5/37)

Deglutitive airway protective mechanisms include glottal closure, epiglottal descent, and anterosuperior displacement of the larynx. Aspiration of swallowed material may occur during the pre-, intra-, or postpharyngeal phase of swallowing. Our objectives were to determine the relative contribution of the airway protective mechanisms during each phase of swallow in 14 decerebrated cats before and after suprahyoid myotomy, epiglottectomy, and unilateral cordectomy. After myotomy, superior excursions of the hyoid, thyroid, and cricoid cartilages and anteroposterior diameter of maximum upper esophageal spincter (UES) opening were significantly diminished, but the incidence of pharyngeal residue significantly increased (P < 0.05). No aspiration was observed in the predeglutitive period. After myotomy, the incidence of aspiration significantly increased in both intra- and postdeglutitive periods. Epiglottectomy did not alter aspiration incidence, but unilateral cordectomy resulted in a 100% incidence of intra- and postdeglutitive aspiration. In conclusion, glottal closure constitutes the primary mechanism for prevention of intra- and postdeglutitive aspiration, but laryngeal elevation may assist this function. Bolus pulsion without laryngeal distraction can open the UES, but at risk of aspiration due to decreased pharyngeal clearance. The epiglottis provides no apparent airway protection during any phase of swallowing.  (+info)

Fluoroscope-aided retrograde placement of guide wire for tracheal intubation in patients with limited mouth opening. (6/37)

Passing a retrograde catheter/wire into the pharynx through a cricothyroid puncture can facilitate tracheal intubation in difficult situations where either a flexible fibre-optic bronchoscope or an expert user of such a device is not available. Some mouth opening is essential for the oral and/or nasal retrieval of the catheter/wire from the pharynx. Two patients with temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis and extremely limited mouth opening required gap arthroplasty of the TMJ under general anaesthesia. Because we did not have a flexible fibre-optic bronchoscope, we performed fluoroscopy-assisted nasal retrieval of the guide wire passed up through a cricothyroid puncture and subsequently accomplished wire-guided naso-tracheal intubation. In the absence of a flexible fibre-optic bronchoscope, this technique is a very useful aid to intubation in patients with limited mouth opening.  (+info)

Gender-specific distribution of glycosaminoglycans during cartilage mineralization of human thyroid cartilage. (7/37)

The role of glycosaminoglycans (GAG) in the process of cartilage mineralization, especially in the hypertrophic zone of growth plates, is not yet fully understood. Human thyroid cartilage can serve as a model to observe matrix changes associated with cartilage mineralization because the processes follow a distinct route, progress very slowly and show sexual differences. Histochemical staining for low sulphated GAG (chondroitin-4- and -6-sulphates) was decreased in the interterritorial matrix of thyroid cartilage starting at the beginning of the fifth decade, but not in the pericellular or territorial matrix of chondrocytes. Because cartilage mineralization progressed in the interterritorial matrix it seems likely that a decreasing content of chondroitin-4- and -6-sulphates is involved in the mineralization process. This hypothesis is supported by the observation that immunostaining for chondroitin-4- and -6-sulphates was weaker in mineralized cartilage areas than in unmineralized areas, whereas there was no difference in staining for keratan sulphate. In all life decades, female thyroid cartilages contained more chondrocytes with a territorial rim of chondroitin-4- and -6-sulphates probably preventing cartilage mineralization compared with age-matched male specimens. Taken together, the characteristic distribution pattern of chondroitin-4- and -6-sulphates being more concentrated in female than in male thyroid cartilages provided evidence that these macromolecules decrease in cartilage mineralization.  (+info)

Anatomical study of meandering and functions of human intralaryngeal artery. (8/37)

In recent years, partial laryngectomy and partial reconstruction are increasingly intended for conservation of functions of phonation and swallowing. In partial reconstruction, it is important to comprehend morphological characteristics of the blood vessels distributed in the larynx, but there have been only few reports discussing detailed information about them. Previous reports on laryngeal blood vessels have shown that branches of some arteries show remarkable "meandering". In the present study, we devised a method for objectively determining the morphological nature, "meandering" and assessed functions of the arteries. Intralaryngeal arteries were excised from the larynx of cadavers prepared for practice in anatomy, and images of the "meandering" artery were analyzed with NIH Image. The extent of "meandering" was expressed mainly as the ratio of the total length of the blood vessel to the distance between the starting point and the end point of meandering. The results showed that there was a significant difference in the extent of meandering between superior posterior and medial posterior branches of superior laryngeal artery. These arteries, which were distributed in the arytenoid region, were found to be of primary importance in partial laryngectomy and partial reconstruction of the larynx.  (+info)

Adams apple is a feature of the human neck that is characterized by a protrusion formed by the angle of the thyroid cartilage surrounding the larynx. During puberty stage, thyroid cartilage elongates eventually much larger in males than in females. Because this protrusion on the neck is so a distinctive characteristic of an adult male, it may cause you great concern. Yet, Adams apple can be reducing in size by a Thyroid Cartilage Reduction procedure transforming from masculine to feminine remarkably. ...
The thyroid cartilage is a shield-shaped hyaline cartilage that is incomplete posteriorly. It has two large, flat plates, or laminae, that converge at the anterior midline where they form the so-called Adams apple. Projecting from the posterior border of each lamina are superior and inferior projections, the superior and inferior horns of the thyroid cartilage. Attached to its inner surface at the midline is the elastic cartilage structure, the epiglottis. They provide attachment for numerous muscles of the larynx and ventral strap muscles of the neck. Like the other laryngeal cartilages, it grows much more rapidly in the male after puberty ...

Anesthesiology published on 6 2016. Authors: Frédéric Heymans, M.D. et al. Background: When conventional approaches to obtain effective ventilation and return of effective spontaneous breathing fail, surgical airway is the last rescue option. Most physicians have a limited lifetime experience with cricothyrotomy, and it is unclear what method should be taught for this lifesaving procedure. The aim of this study is to compare the performance of medical personnel, naive to surgical airway techniques, in establishing an emergency surgical airway in cadavers using three commonly used cricothyrotomy techniques.. Methods: Twenty medical students, without previous knowledge of surgical airway techniques, were randomly selected from their class. After training, they performed cricothyrotomy by three techniques (surgical, Merkel, and QuickTrach II) in a random order on 60 cadavers with comparable biometrics. The time to complete the procedure, rate of success, and number of complications were recorded. ...

As the passing thing falls down the oropharynx at a stretch, it is serious when entering the trachea, so the larynx must protect the larynx so that it does not get through. Normally, in such a case, we think that the entrance should close the lid all the time, or if you move the entrance, you may think about a mechanism that keeps the lid apart as if to escape from the approaching one. However, the place where the larynx is daring to pass through things is daring. The thyroid cartilage surrounding the entrance of the larynx and the hyoid bone are connected by a thyrohyoid muscle, and while the hyoid bone moves forward, the thyroid cartilage is pulled up at once to the trachea following it.. How does this relate to swallowing? Actually, the root of the epiglottic cartilage which protruded to the pharynx extends far to the front wall of the thyroid cartilage and the root is fixed like a hinge. In the latter half of pharyngeal phase, the epiglottis is pressed down from the top of the tongue base ...

There are few data on the impact of simulation on the acquisition of airway management skills in general and cricothyrotomy in particular. A recent study by Boet et al.18 reported that a single simulation cricothyrotomy training session improved the procedural skills of 28 attending anesthetists and that this improvement was retained for at least a year. In the latter study, the attending anesthetists were assessed in a simulated cricothyrotomy scenario in a pretest, immediately after a debriefing and structured teaching session on cricothyrotomy insertion and at either 6 or 12 months posttest. The same scenario was used in the pretest and in the posttests; the resident played the role of an anesthesiologist called on to help with an ongoing intubation attempt. On the simulated patients arrival, the oxygen saturation was 89% and falling by 10% per minute. All intubation methods were destined to be unsuccessful, because the manikin was set up in the CICV configuration. Hence, the scenario was ...

The impact of AC involvement on the RT treatment outcome of early GC is still controversial. The so called AC or Broyles tendon is the insertion of vocalis tendon into thyroid cartilage in the area of AC. This is considered as a weak point for tumor spread because in this area, there is no thyroid cartilage perichondrium to resist tumor spread. Although some data suggested that AC involvement portended a worse prognosis, it has not been included in the staging system.. In the recent two decades, many authors identified AC involvement as one of the independent poor prognostic factors in LC for T1N0 GC treated by primary RT [4, 21, 29]. In a recent report by Smee et al. [30], it was found that AC involvement was one of the independent poor prognostic factors for LC as well as cause specific survival. One explanation is related to the possibility of understaging without CT scan staging, as patients might have a larger tumor burden anteriorly, and in some cases unrecognized subglottic extension ...
An illustrated anterior view of the thyroid gland and nearby structures in the neck including the hyoid bone, thyroid cartilage, cricothyroid muscles and trachea. - Stock Image C027/6320
The time intervals from start to location of the cricothyroid membrane were not significantly different between volunteers using the Seldinger versus the standard surgical technique. Times to tracheal puncture, as well as times to first ventilation, were significantly longer when participants were using the standard surgical cricothyroidotomy technique. Seven attempts at trachea placement had to be aborted in those using the Seldinger technique due to kinking of the guidewire, whereas six attempts had to be aborted in the group using standard surgical placement technique. Subsequent anatomic dissection revealed that the airway was accurately placed into the trachea through the cricothyroid membrane in 88.2% of the Seldinger technique attempts and in 84.0% of the standard surgical attempts. Six punctures of the thyroid vessels were observed in the cadavers receiving the standard surgical technique. Although the study in cadavers does not reflect real clinical situations, the shorter time to first ...

A tracheal shave or Adams Apple reduction is the removal of the protruding portions of the paired thyroid cartilages that cover the larynx. This is done through a small horizontal neck incision directly over them in a natural neck skin crease. The cartilages are reduced by shaving or burring them down but without making them unduly weak or disrupting the attachments of the underlying vocal cords. How much reduction of the neck bulge that can be achieved highly depends on the thickness of the cartilages.. The following are typical after surgery tracheal shave instructions:. 1) Most tracheal shave procedures have virtually no pain after surgery. Patients usually only feel the need to use Tylenol or Ibuprofen for just a few days after the procedure, if any medication at all.. 2) There will be a flesh-colored tapes glued on over the incision.

Fra denne bloggen finner vi følgende info: http://blog.paleohacks.com/guide-thyroid-health/. Your thyroid, or thyroid gland, is one of the largest endocrine glands in your body, hence the importance of your thyroid health. Its located in your neck below the thyroid cartilage. Its responsible for how your body reacts to other hormones, makes proteins, and how your body uses energy, all via the production of thyroid hormones. These hormones, called triiodothyronine (also called T3), thyroxine (also called T4), and calcitonin.. Some of the symptoms of thyroid problems are listed above, but generally, if you suffer from a combination of any of the symptoms listed below, you should probably ask to have your thyroid hormone levels checked. Specifically, ask to have your T3 levels checked in addition to TSH and T4.. Here are those symptoms:. ...
Thyroid gland: It is located while watching trachea (windpipe) inside your neck of the guitar. The thyroid cartilage, that is the biggest cartilage from the larynx (voice box) is simply over the thyroid gland. It is split into two lobes (right as well as left) and it is linked to the centre with a slim link associated with thyroid cells, referred to as the actual isthmus. Due to the two linked lobes, the gland may be referred to as becoming formed just like a butterfly, or perhaps a bend connect. ...
The thyroid gland is a highly vascular organ, situated at the front and sides of the neck; it consists of right and left lobes connected across the mid line by a narrow portion, the isthmus. Its weight is somewhat variable, but is usually about 30 grams. It is slightly heavier in the female, in whom it becomes enlarged during menstruation and pregnancy. The lobes are conical in shape, the apex of each being directed superior and lateral as far as the junction of the middle with the lower third of the thyroid cartilage; the base looks inferior, and is on a level with the fifth or sixth tracheal ring. Each lobe is about 5 cm. long; its greatest width is about 3 cm and its thickness about 2 cm. The lateral or superficial surface is convex, and covered by the skin, the superficial and deep fasciae, the Sternocleidomastoid, the superior belly of the Omohyoid, the Sternohyoid and Sternothyreoid, and beneath the last muscle by the pretracheal layer of the deep fascia, which forms a capsule for the ...

Taken together, it is anticipated that SDSU can expect to see an estimated $29 million budget reduction at the campus level, absorbing approximately 10% of the cut in state funding to the system. In addition, SDSU is expected to cover unfunded mandatory cost increases of approximately $3 million, which addresses standard increases in health insurance, retirement, and other mandatory costs. In summary, there will be an expected base reduction of $32 million for SDSU in FY 2020-21. As positive news, however, we are cautiously optimistic that SDSUs resident enrollment will be close to or on target. Non-resident enrollment is expected to be short of target, as is the case at most universities across the U.S., and within the CSU. The SDSU budget is further stressed with an estimated one-time loss of approximately $47 million resulting from refunding of housing, meal plan, and parking, and also health and safety costs associated with the pandemic, and additional investments made to support virtual ...

A method for performing emergency cricothyrotomy ventilation comprising palpating the cricothyroid membrane between the thyroid and cricoid cartilages and thereafter inserting an over-the-needle cathe
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 ...

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 ...

The thyroid gland is located between the C5 and T1 vertebrae. However, since the position of the thyroid gland can vary slightly among people, changes position during swallowing and can be enlarged (goiter), it is difficult to use the vertebral column as the sole landmark.. Thyroid pain is any superficial discomfort, tenderness or pain in the neck, below the thyroid cartilage (Adams apple) around the level of the cricoid cartilage that is usually exacerbated during swallowing or palpation. This tenderness or pain can extend all the way to the superior mediastinum. However the pain may not be so localized and could radiate to laterally (sternocleidomastoid muscles), superiorly (mouth, chin, jaw) or inferiorly (beyond the superior mediastinum to the chest).. ...

Laryngeal cysts are cysts involving the larynx or more frequently supraglottic locations, such as epiglottis and vallecula. Usually they do not extend to the thyroid cartilage. They may be present congenitally or may develop eventually due to degenerative cause. They often interfere with phonation. Hoarseness is the most common presenting symptom, while pain, stridor or laryngeal obstruction are unusual complaints. They may cause significant respiratory obstruction leading to dyspnoea or respiratory distress and even cyanosis, and jugular and epigastric retractions. Congenital lesions may present with severe airway obstruction at birth calling for emergency intervention and intubation. There are three types of laryngeal cysts, namely, mucous, hemorrhagic and congenital. However, a new classification system for congenital laryngeal cysts on the basis of the extent of the cyst and the embryologic tissue of origin, is proposed for the ease of initial surgical management. Treatment can be medical or ...

Participants were recruited who had chronic moderate to severe dysphagia following stroke or radiation treatment for head and neck cancer. Their frequency of swallowing was transduced with an accelerometer placed on the skin over the thyroid cartilage and inductive plethysmography bands placed over the rib cage and abdomen. When laryngeal elevation coincided with respiratory apnea a swallow was marked. Five different motor frequencies were evaluated to determine their effect on participants frequency of swallowing (swallows per minute). Frequencies were 30, 70, 110, and 150 Hz and a combination of 70 and 110 Hz. For each vibratory frequency the number of swallows per minute occurring during stimulation was compared with sham when the participant was wearing the device but the motor was not turned on. The frequency fo swallowing during stimulation was compared with the frequency of swallowing between stimulations. Visual analogue ratings of the urge to swallow and discomfort were also measured ...
Lawyers are seeking a new trial for a Houston man scheduled to be executed Jan. 20, arguing that their clients conviction for strangling a female impersonator was based on a botched autopsy and a questionable confession. In a review of Shrodes work submitted with the appeal, Florida pathologist Dr. Christina Roberts found the victims thyroid cartilage and a neck bone were intact; there was no discoloration of soft tissue in the neck. Additionally, she noted, Shrode failed to appreciate the significance of a 90 percent blockage of a coronary artery, which, she wrote, could have resulted in a fatal heart attack.

That was exactly my first sentiment. Why is there even a difference, but were both wrong. Heres another example;. Anthropological Variations in the Anatomy of the Human Thyroid Arteries. Knowledge of anatomic variability of the superior (STA), inferior (ITA), and lowest accessory (IMA) thyroid arteries may be helpful in certain clinical conditions. However, details of this variability have not been thoroughly described. Specifically, whether the presence and site of origin of STA, ITA, and IMA are influenced by the anthropological group, to what extent their origin is symmetric or asymmetric, and the role played by this variability in visualizing each thyroid artery by nonselective thyroid angiography is not known. To clarify this we conducted a meta-analytical study on Caucasian and Asian subjects, the latter including only Japanese and Koreans. In Caucasians and Asians the presence of superior vessels compared to inferior vessels was more frequent and the probability of symmetric or ...

In the human female, the urethra is about 1.9 inches (4.8 cm) to 2 inches (5.1 cm) long and exits the body between the clitoris and the vagina, extending from the internal to the external urethral orifice. The meatus is located below the clitoris. It is placed behind the symphysis pubis, embedded in the anterior wall of the vagina, and its direction is obliquely downward and forward; it is slightly curved with the concavity directed forward. The proximal 2/3rds is lined by transitional epithelium cells while distal 1/3rd is lined by stratified squamous epithelium cells.[10] The urethra consists of three coats: muscular, erectile, and mucous, the muscular layer being a continuation of that of the bladder. Between the superior and inferior fascia of the urogenital diaphragm, the female urethra is surrounded by the urethral sphincter. Somatic (conscious) innervation of the external urethral sphincter is supplied by the pudendal nerve. ...

The gustatory cortex is the primary receptive area for taste. The word taste is used in a technical sense to refer specifically to sensations coming from taste buds on the tongue. The five qualities of taste detected by the tongue include sourness, bitterness, sweetness, saltiness, and the protein taste quality, called umami. In contrast, the term flavor refers to the experience generated through integration of taste with smell and tactile information. The gustatory cortex consists of two primary structures: the anterior insula, located on the insular lobe, and the frontal operculum, located on the frontal lobe. Similarly to the olfactory cortex, the gustatory pathway operates through both peripheral and central mechanisms.[clarification needed] Peripheral taste receptors, located on the tongue, soft palate, pharynx, and esophagus, transmit the received signal to primary sensory axons, where the signal is projected to the nucleus of the solitary tract in the medulla, or the gustatory nucleus of ...
Because the beta cells in the pancreatic islets are selectively destroyed by an autoimmune process in type 1 diabetes, clinicians and researchers are actively pursuing islet transplantation as a means of restoring physiological beta cell function, which would offer an alternative to a complete pancreas transplant or artificial pancreas.[14][15] Islet transplantation emerged as a viable option for the treatment of insulin requiring diabetes in the early 1970s with steady progress over the last three decades.[16] Recent clinical trials have shown that insulin independence and improved metabolic control can be reproducibly obtained after transplantation of cadaveric donor islets into patients with unstable type 1 diabetes.[15] Islet transplantation for type 1 diabetes currently requires potent immunosuppression to prevent host rejection of donor islets.[17] An alternative source of beta cells, such insulin-producing cells derived from adult stem cells or progenitor cells would contribute to ...

  • The laryngeal muscles act on the skeletal tissues, which includes the thyroid cartilage, and facilitate the vibration of the vocal cords, which in turn triggers the occurrence of vocalization. (healthylifemed.com)
  • The thyroid cartilage also offers support to and protects the vocal folds. (healthylifemed.com)
  • When the thyroid cartilage moves at the joint, it brings about a change in the levels of tension affecting the vocal cords, which then creates the variations in human voice. (healthylifemed.com)
  • Vocal range is determined by the size of the thyroid cartilage. (aidanews.com)
  • However there is another way to determine a person's vocal range, and that is by the size and shape of the thyroid cartilage. (aidanews.com)
  • Note: Technically the soft tissue around the thyroid cartilage also relates to deciding vocal ranges. (aidanews.com)
  • The Arytœnoideus approximates the arytenoid cartilages, and thus closes the aperture of the glottis , especially at its back part to eliminate the posterior commissure of the vocal folds. (wikipedia.org)
  • There is a fine balance for the greatest reduction of cartilage and potential loosening of the vocal cords - which in some patients could undesirably lower the voice. (csaok.com)
  • Thyroid is Greek for 'shield-shaped', but it's not quite the shape that most of us picture shields as being. (everything2.com)
  • In a hospital, before inserting the needle, a small cut may be made in the skin and the membrane between the thyroid and cricoid cartilages. (medlineplus.gov)
  • Relationship of the Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve to the Inferior Thyroid Artery: A Comparison of Findings from Two Systematic Reviews. (tripdatabase.com)
  • The right recurrent laryngeal nerve, identified and photographed in situ for the first time in the rhinoceros, was deep to the inferior thyroid artery and was traced throughout its cervical course. (tripdatabase.com)
  • On physical examination the patient had pain over the thyroid cartilage without subcutaneous emphysema. (hindawi.com)
  • While no study can determine the cause of an individual case of thyroid disease, an epidemiological study, such as the HTDS, provides the best way to determine whether disease has increased in a population exposed to a potentially harmful agent such as radiation. (cdc.gov)
  • The thyroid sits on top of the cricoid cartilage , the inferior cornu sitting on top of facets on either side of the cricoid lamina . (everything2.com)
  • Some people have a small cartilage sitting atop the superior cornu, called the tritical cartilages . (everything2.com)
  • We describe the diagnostic workup and surgical treatment of a patient presenting with the unique case of vertebral artery (VA) occlusion subsequent to head flexion leading to compression of an aberrant VA by the ipsilateral superior cornu of the thyroid cartilage. (elsevier.com)
  • The patient was managed with laryngoplasty involving removal of the right superior cornu of the thyroid cartilage. (elsevier.com)
  • Trauma, congenital malformation and aging process can be a cause of the deviation of laryngeal prominence in the thyroid cartilage. (bvsalud.org)
  • Projecting from the posterior border of each lamina are superior and inferior projections, the superior and inferior horns of the thyroid cartilage. (anatomyexpert.com)
  • The projections of Corniculate cartilage look like "horns" hence the name. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acute fractures of the superior horns of the thyroid cartilage are not infrequently seen in ligature hanging. (elsevier.com)
