ar·y·te·noid car·ti·lage

[TA]
one of a pair of small triangular pyramidal laryngeal cartilages that articulate with the lamina of the cricoid cartilage. It gives attachment at its anteriorly directed vocal process to the posterior part of the corresponding vocal ligament and to several muscles at its laterally directed muscular process. The base of the cartilage is hyaline but the apex is elastic.

Various studies have reported that sparing both arytenoid cartilages speeds recovery of swallowing after SCPL (3, 4, 6, 9).
It is known that sparing both of the arytenoid cartilages is important for swallowing recovery.
In 2 cases, the cricoid and arytenoid cartilages lacked calcification and were not visible.
Joint ankylosis manifests as a loss of soft-tissue density between the cricoid and arytenoid cartilages (arrows) secondary to severe joint space narrowing, which creates areas of focal fusion.
(11) The main effect of activity in the LCA and IA muscles is the adduction of the cartilaginous glottis via the positioning of the arytenoid cartilages. Whereas the LCA adducts the vocal processes (and hence also the superior membranous portion of the vocal folds), the IA muscles seal the posterior part of the cartilaginous glottis.
Also evident were swelling of the left true vocal fold, the stigmata of radiation laryngitis, and diffuse white patches on the false vocal folds and arytenoid cartilages bilaterally.
Complete arytenoid cartilages arise from two different embryologic origins.
The arytenoid cartilages were mildly edematous and moderately erythematous.
(1,2) Their presence there may lead to an expansion of the circumference of the laryngeal inlet, lateral displacement of the arytenoid cartilages, and consequent glottic insufficiency.
