• airway
  • AS or arytenoid subluxation usually occurs as a complication of endotracheal intubation and instrumentation of the upper airway. (healthylifemed.com)
  • When this happens, the weakened or paralyzed cartilage cannot move out of the airway. (thehorse.com)
  • The negative pressure sucks the paralyzed arytenoid cartilage into the airway (dynamic collapse), leading to further (often almost complete) airway obstruction. (thehorse.com)
  • patients
  • Sclerosis of the arytenoid cartilage may be seen as an incidental finding in patients who do not have laryngeal cancer but may also be an early sign of neoplastic infiltration. (ajnr.org)
  • Three hundred twenty-two patients were excluded who were younger than 18 years of age or whose arytenoids could not be reliably seen due to artifacts. (ajnr.org)
  • Six hundred fifty patients (424 men, 226 women) were assessed, and their arytenoid cartilages were graded as nonmineralized, calcified, sclerotic, or ossified on each side separately. (ajnr.org)
  • 2 Sclerosis of the arytenoids may be seen as an incidental finding, however, in patients who do not have laryngeal cancer. (ajnr.org)
  • folds
  • Paired cartilages: Arytenoid cartilages: Of the paired cartilages, the arytenoid cartilages are the most important because they influence the position and tension of the vocal folds. (wikipedia.org)
  • Others, such as Laver, Catford, Trask and the authors of the Voice Quality Symbols (VoQS), equate murmur with whispery voice in which the vocal folds or, at least, the anterior part of the vocal folds vibrates, as in modal voice, but the arytenoid cartilages are held apart to allow a large turbulent airflow between them. (wikipedia.org)
  • The distinction between the latter two of these realizations, vocal folds somewhat separated along their length (breathy voice) and vocal folds together with the arytenoids making an opening (whispery voice), is phonetically relevant in White Hmong (Hmong Daw). (wikipedia.org)
