OBJECTIVE To investigate the 3D structure of the macula flava in the human vocal fold. MATERIAL AND METHODS The 3D structure of the macula flava in the human vocal fold was investigated by means of scanning electron microscopy using a chemical digestion method (modified sodium hydroxide maceration method) and the results compared with those obtained using light microscopy. RESULTS The macula flava of the human vocal fold comprised a dense mass of cells and extracellular matrices. Many cells… CONTINUE READING
