15) For this reason, the resection of a part of the cricoid cartilage may be required; however, because this extension increases the probability of aspiration, reconstruction is necessary.
The use of patient's own auricular cartilage to repair deficiency of the tracheal wall.
Sheen described the use of spreader grafts secured between the upper lateral cartilages and the septum to increase the internal nasal valve angle by lateralizing the upper lateral cartilages.
This procedure begins as a typical open septorhinoplasty, with careful separation of the upper lateral cartilages from the septum and without disruption of the nasal mucosa.
Once a tumor involves the cartilages of the larynx and thyroid, surgery and postoperative irradiation is the treatment of choice.
A detailed examination revealed that a transglottic tumor had infiltrated the thyroid and cricoid cartilage, the upper two tracheal rings, and the thyroid gland.
The tumor, which contained both soft tissue and calcifications, had eroded the arytenoid and cricoid cartilages and had spread as far as the vertebrae bilaterally (figure 1).
Laryngeal chondrosarcomas usually arise from the hyaline cartilage of the posterior cricoid.
This indicated that very thick cartilages formed these structures, and therefore the joints themselves, and would have added significant height to certain dinosaurs," she added.
Studying the cartilages could also have implications for their speed and posture.
The tumor most commonly arises within the cricoid cartilage
(specifically, the posterior lamina), although the thyroid and arytenoid cartilages
are occasionally affected.
