True vocal cords
were found to be the most common site to be involved (86%) with right cord (26%) involvement being more common than the left (20%) [Table 7].
True vocal cords
are most frequently affected in laryngeal TB followed by the epiglottis, false cords and ventricles, arytenoids, posterior commissure and subglottic area.
A specialized ETT was accurately placed such that the surface electrode was in contact with the true vocal cords
, and the integrity of the NM system was confirmed by tapping test.
The evaluation was based only on microlaryngoscopic outer appearance of the true vocal cords
in this question.
Flexible laryngoscopy was performed in the office, revealing irregular thickening at the petiole of the epiglottis with bilateral false vocal cord fullness and granulation changes noted at the anterior aspects of both true vocal cords
Fiberoptic laryngoscopy revealed oedema and decreased mobility of the right true vocal cord
, along with characteristic granulomatous roughness of true vocal cords
bilaterally, raising suspicions of carcinoma of the larynx.
Vocal cords polyps are the commonest benign laryngeal lesions that arise from the true vocal cords
The condition consists of paradoxical adduction of the true vocal cords
on inspiration and occasionally on early expiration as well (1,2).
Supraglottis: The space above the upper surface of the true vocal cords
to the laryngeal inlet is the Supraglottis, laryngeal inlet is a part of the supra glottis and is formed by:
Basement membrane is visible separating the surface epithelium from the underlying connective tissue of lamina propria (Fig-1) The epithelium lining the true vocal cords
appear to be similar to the one lining the entire ventricular cavity.
The ventricles and the false and true vocal cords
are the most common sites for localized amyloidosis in the respiratory tree.
