Computed tomography (CT) identified an isolated comminuted fracture of the cricoid cartilage
Anatomically, the pharynx is divided into three subsections, the most inferior of which (the hypopharynx) extends from the level of the hyoid bone to the inferior margin of the cricoid cartilage
Numerous successful cases have been reported since 2007 measuring the transverse subglottic diameter at the level of the cricoid cartilage
for selecting the right external diameter of the endotracheal tube.
The cricoid cartilage
is used because it is the only complete ring of cartilage in the respiratory tract.
As mentioned, the tracheostomy is typically placed around the second or third tracheal ring below the cricoid cartilage
measurements were compared using analysis of variance and reported as mean and standard deviation.
This cosmetically unacceptable ovoid mass of thyroid tissue was present in the midline overlying the thyrohyoid membrane, thyroid cartilage and cricoid cartilage
Using the tips of the thumb and the index finger, press firmly down on the cricoid cartilage
, compressing the oesophagus.
In our case, lack of any microscopic relationship with the cricoid cartilage
would suggest that ABC changes might alternatively arise within the submucosal tissue, perhaps secondary to a focus of reparative bone metaplasia.
The function of the cricothyroid muscle is defined in its name: it pulls the thyroid cartilage toward the cricoid cartilage

Arytenoid cartilage dislocation is defined as the disarticulation of the arytenoid cartilage from the cricoid cartilage
