Unlike the other reported cases, the growth pattern was polypoid and showed no evidence of connection to the cricoid cartilage
She described a sensation of food getting stuck in her throat; she localized the site to the approximate level of the cricoid cartilage
High-resolution computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the larynx demonstrated a large, well-defined, inhomogeneous, enhancing mass in the soft tissue of the cricoid cartilage
1) Paraganglia are associated with the superior laryngeal artery and nerve along the false vocal fold (superior paraganglia) and along the course of the recurrent laryngeal nerve at the lateral margin of the cricoid cartilage
Direct laryngoscopy and bronchoscopy were performed with careful attention to the interarytenoid area, and they confirmed the presence of a laryngeal cleft that extended into the cricoid cartilage
She complained of food sticking at the level of the cricoid cartilage
as often as three times per week.
Computed tomography (CT) of the neck demonstrated a well-demarcated lyric lesion on the posterior lamina of the cricoid cartilage
that measured approximately 1.
A 67-year-old woman presented with dysphagia for solids, which she localized to the area just below the cricoid cartilage
The stenosis extended from the anterior superior border of the cricoid cartilage
through the first tracheal ring.
At this most recent presentation, physical examination revealed the presence of a firm, nontender, 1-cm mass fixed to the left border of the cricoid cartilage
Surgical exploration revealed that the tumor extended into the cricoid cartilage
Calcification of the cricoid cartilage
can occur in the ridge of the posterior lamina; on lateral neck x-rays, it can appear as a linear opacity separated from the rest of the cricoid calcification and mimic a foreign-body impaction in the postcricoid area.
A transverse cervical incision was made below the level of the cricoid cartilage
