J (1997) (7)noticed the epiglottic maturation during 17-28 weeks of intrauterine life with simultaneous development of corniculate and cuneiform cartilages.
Corniculate and cuneiform cartilages are seen at 26 weeks of gestation.
Roger et al began by sectioning only the aryepiglottic folds, but they later also resected the redundant arytenoid mucosa, occasionally with the corniculate cartilage; of 115 cases, 4 required an epiglottopexy for significant epiglottic swaying.
The procedures that have been advocated include (1) division of the aryepiglottic fold, (2) partial amputation of the epiglottis, (3) suture of the epiglottis to the base of the tongue (epiglottoplasty), (4) removal of redundant supra-arytenoid mucosa and the lateral borders of the epiglottis, and (5) removal of the cuneiform and corniculate cartilages and the surrounding mucosa.
