Evaluating the Structural Properties of Suprahyoid Muscles and their Potential for Moving the Hyoid

Superior and anterior hyoid movements are important events in pharyngeal deglutition. This cross-sectional study uses a cadaver model to document the structural properties of the muscles underlying these movements in an effort to understand how their morphology influences function. Measurements to determine physiological cross-sectional areas (PCSAs) of… CONTINUE READING
