from The Century Dictionary.
- noun The arytenoid muscle, a muscle of the larynx passing transversely behind the arytenoid cartilages from one to the other.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
If the arytenoideus muscle alone is paralysed, a triangular interval is left between the cords posteriorly.
The arytenoideus proprius tends to bring the cartilages from which it is named, and therefore the vocal bands, toward each other; while the posterior crico-thyroid, from its attachments and line of pull, tends to separate these and lengthen the vocal bands.] [Illustration: FIG.
