A postmortem found Epstein, 66, who died on Saturday while held on underage sex trafficking charges, had a broken hyoid
Among the bones broken in Epstein's neck was the hyoid
bone, which in men is near the Adam's apple.
Jonathan Arden, president of America's National Association of Medical Examiners, said a broken hyoid
bone was more common in strangulation murders than suicide hangings.
Accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein's autopsy reports show that he had multiple broken neck bones, including the horseshoe shaped hyoid
bone, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday.
The right epibranchial bone of the hyoid
apparatus was luxated and caudoventrally displaced (Fig 4a and b).
The objective of the study was to compare cephalometric values of the craniocervical and hyoid
region in subjects with nasal and oral respiration.
Pau et al13 have also reported another surgical procedure for correction of mutational falsetto (puberphonia) via mobilizing hyoid
and superior halves of thyroid cartilage to reduce cricothyroid distance by apposing hyoid
to cricoid cartilage.
The suprahyoid muscles are considered to be strategic for deglutition, since they participate in motor reflex mechanisms, lowering and stabilization of the mandible, elevation and forward movement of the hyoid
bone, and have insertion with tongue musculature (9,10).
bone is the only bone in the head and neck region which does not have any bony articulations.
This challenge is exacerbated by the fact that the most important jaw depressor muscles do their work by pulling the mandible downward toward the hyoid
The autopsy had revealed that Sana had been strangled to death, her voice box was swollen and the right cornua of her hyoid
bone (in the neck) had been dislocated.
The electrodes were attached to the surface of the muscle belly of the submental muscles (SMs) (on both sides of the midline of the neck, between the submental border and the hyoid
bone) and the infrahyoid muscles (IMs) (approximately 2 cm below the hyoid
bone on both sides of the midline of the neck).
