The attachments of the inferior and dorsal extensions of the lateral parts of the conus elasticus (CE) are not fully understood. A re-investigation was done in plastinated serial sections of 20 adult human larynges. The CE consists of a coherent sheet of connective tissue fibers dividing into two layers toward the inferior anchorage to the cricoid arch, and the posterior anchorage to the cricoid lamina. Caudally, the medial fiber layer is continuous with the submucous fibroelastic membrane of… CONTINUE READING
