The importance of the CA articulation was examined by Cheetham et al. (2008a). In this study, the effect of stabilizing the CAJ by injecting it with polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) was evaluated. It was found that stabilizing the joint with PMMA resisted collapse of the airway and reduced the force experienced by the suture during maxi- Various prosthetic materials have been used for PL. Materials reported include catgut, wire, nylon, polyester, polytetrafluoroethylene, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, and braided cable (Ahern and Parente 2008, 2010; Ahern et al.

7 N. However, this was an in vitro study on cadaveric larynges and the load may have been lower than in vivo due to the absence of muscular function or different suture placement positioning. The arytenoid cartilage The arytenoid cartilage has historically been suspected as a major cause of abduction loss post PL. Due to this belief, a majority of the laryngeal biomechanical research has been focused on the muscular process and its role in maintaining abduction (Dean et al. 1990; Kelly et al. 2008; Mathews et al.

The loss of arytenoid abduction leads to a reduction in the cross-sectional area (CSA) of the rima glottidis resulting in decreased inspiratory flow, increased respiratory impedance, hypoxemia, exercise intolerance, and abnormal respiratory noise (Davenport et al. 2001; Derksen et al. The influence of reduction in the CSA of the rima glottidis and its effects on airflow are best understood by Poiseuille’s Law regarding fluid dynamics. This law states that R = 8 ul/r4 . , the larynx) will result in an increase in the resistance to airflow by the fourth power.
