They are bounded anteriorly by palatoglossal arches and posteriorly by palatopharyngeal
This increase is likely a consequence of stretching the soft tissue connecting the soft palate, lateral pharynx, tongue, and palatopharyngeal
arches [29, 32].
The nasal area is most often affected , and the occurrence of glial choristoma of the oral region, most frequently occurring in the palatopharyngeal
complex area, is relatively rare .
valve dysfunction and reflux of contrast (white arrows) between the soft palate and the posterior pharyngeal wall.
In somatic gagging, any stimulation of "trigger zones": palatoglossal and palatopharyngeal
folds, base of the tongue, palate, uvula and posterior pharyngeal wall induce the gag reflex.
There's evidence that regular vocal exercises may help because it helps tone the soft palate, the tongue, the nasal passages and the palatopharyngeal
There's some evidence that regular vocal exercises may help people who snore because it helps tone the soft palate, the tongue, the nasal passages and the palatopharyngeal
Singing lessons are worth a try as there's evidence that vocal exercises may benefit people who snore because it helps tone the soft palate, the tongue, the nasal passages and the palatopharyngeal
These scholars have identified a complex of muscles that considered key to the mechanism of swallowing, they are: higher pharyngeal constrictor, palatopharyngeal
, palatoglossus, posterior intrinsic muscles of the tongue, styloglossus, stylohyoid, genius-hyoid and mylohyoid.
and hypopharyngeal surgery for severe obstructive sleep apnea.
Sensory inputs can be initiated and sustained either by mucosal receptors of the oropharynx and/or by lingual and/or palatopharyngeal
mechanoreceptors during swallowing (1-3).
Distance between palatoglossal and palatopharyngeal
arches height of palatoglossal and palatopharyngeal
arches uvula width uvula length and distance between tonsils were measured.
