Normal Anatomy, Histology and Heterotopia of the Larynx
Part of the
book series (CUHI, volume 16)
Mainly for purposes of classification of neoplasms, the larynx has been divided into three regions: supraglottis, glottis and subglottis. The supraglottis is that region above the true vocal cords, including the epiglottis, the false cords, the ventricles and the saccules. The glottis comprises the vocal cords, the vocal processes of the arytenoids, and the anterior and posterior commissures. The subglottis is that region of the larynx below the true vocal cords down to the level of the lower border of the cricoid cartilage, below which the trachea commences.
