We hypothesise that increased intralaryngeal pressure was caused by the vocal cord polyps obstructing the neck of the laryngeal ventricle leading to laryngocoele formation, in a very similar fashion to laryngeal carcinoma.
Radiological diagnosis is primarily by means of CT scan, which can show the characteristic intralaryngeal and extralaryngeal expansion, the relationship with the laryngeal ventricle and thyroid membrane, and the presence of carcinoma.
Kirse et al recently described an endoscopic extended ventriculotomy procedure in which most of the lateral wall of the supraglottis, including the false vocal fold and laryngeal ventricle, is resected.
To review, the laryngeal ventricle is the space that exists between the true and false vocal folds.
Those that arise in the laryngeal ventricle should be called laryngoceles.
Outpouchings of the laryngeal ventricle extend through the openings in the thyrohyoid membrane for the superior laryngeal vessels and nerve, and balloon outward and upward toward the submandibular triangle.
The vegetative lesion did not involve the anterior commissure or laryngeal ventricle. After excision of the polyp, a biopsy was performed on the anterior aspect of the suspected malignancy.
Narrow nostrils, elongated soft palate and everted laryngeal ventricles (Harvey, 1982a; Harvey, 1982b; Harvey, 1982c; Lorinson et al., 1997 and Koch et al., 2003) were the reasons for respiratory problems in brachycephalic airway syndrome.
MUC6 and 7 were not expressed in any of the tested (vocal folds, laryngeal ventricles and posterior commissure) samples.
(3) As otolaryngologists have been more diligent about looking for signs of LPR such as posterior laryngeal edema (swelling) and erythema (redness), obliteration of the laryngeal ventricles and interarytenoid hypertrophy, treatment for LPR based upon these findings has become increasingly common.
The appearance of the laryngeal ventricles, subglottic area, true vocal folds, and false vocal folds was normal.
