An investigation was carried out to determine the histologic structure of the maculae flavae of human adult vocal folds. Excised human adult larynges served as the materials for this study. Light microscopic, scanning, and transmission electron microscopic observations were made. The results are summarized as follows. 1) The maculae flavae are located at the anterior and posterior ends of the bilateral vocal folds. Vocal fold ligaments run between the anterior and posterior maculae flavae. 2…

TLDR
The macula flava of the newborn appears to be an important structure in the growth and development of the vocal ligament.
Comparative Histology of the Maculae Flavae of the Vocal Folds
TLDR
The HMF contributes to the formation of the vocal ligaments and the layered structure of human vocal folds and the density of both in HMF was much greater than that in CMF.
Macula Flava and Vocal Fold Stellate Cells of the Human Adult Vocal Fold
1. Human adult maculae flavae are dense masses of cells and extracellular matrices located at the anterior and posterior ends of the membranous portion of the bilateral vocal folds. 2.

TLDR
The quality and quantity of the fibrous components were changed in the mucosa of sulcus vocalis, owing in part to dysfunction of the Fibroblasts and abnormal fibrogenesis in the maculae flavae.
Histologic Structure and Development of the Laryngeal Macula Flava
The laryngeal maculae flavae (MF) have been previously described as cellular condensations at the extremities of the vocal cords, but the exact nature and role of the MF are unknown. The purpose of
3D Structure of the Macula Flava in the Human Vocal Fold
TLDR
Anterior and posterior maculae flavae in the human vocal fold mucosa are postulated to be involved in the metabolism of extracellular matrices, which are essential to the viscoelasticity of the lamina propria (the vibrating tissue) of the human adult vocal Fold mucosa.
Fine Structure of the Human Newborn and Infant Vocal Fold Mucosae
TLDR
During infancy, the extracellular matrices synthesized in the maculae flavae appear in the membranous portion of the vocal fold, each at a different time, so as to initiate the 3-dimensional formation ofThe vocal fold mucosa.
[Ultrastructure of the mucous membrane of the human newborn vocal folds].
TLDR
The newborn vocal fold mucosa lacked not only a vocal ligament but also adequate viscoelasticity for vibration and ground substance was abundant in the lamina propria.
Functional Histology of the Macula Flava in the Human Vocal Fold – Part 1: Its Role in the Adult Vocal Fold
TLDR
Human MFe including VFSCs seem to be involved in the metabolism of EM which are essential for the viscoelasticity of the lamina propria of the VFM, and to be responsible for maintaining the characteristic layered structure of the human VFM.
Functional Histology of the Macula Flava in the Human Vocal Fold – Part 2: Its Role in the Growth and Development of the Vocal Fold
TLDR
Human MFe including VFSCs were inferred to be involved in the metabolism of EM, essential for the viscoelasticity of the human VFM, and are considered to be an important structure in the growth and development of thehuman VFM.

Distribution of Elastic Cartilage in the Arytenoids and its Physiologic Significance
TLDR
An investigation of the distribution of the elastic cartilage in the arytenoids was performed on excised human adult and newborn larynges and Elastic cartilage appears to play an important role in the physiologic functioning of the aRYtenoid.
