Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ... 140.--Indirect LaryngoBCopic View of the Larynx from Above with the Epiglottis Raised and the Glottis Open. (After P. Krause, "Lehrb. d. kiln. Dlagnostlk," published by G. Fischer. Jena.) middle line on vocalizing, the color and blood supply of the vocal cords and of other visible parts, and the presence or absence of scars, ulcers, tumors, etc. ii. View of Ihe Posterior Wall of the Larynx In order to examine the posterior wall of the larynx, and the trachea as far as its bifurcation, the patient sits higher, or stands up, and bends his head well forward, until the chin touches the manubrium sterni. The examiner sits, or kneels, in front of the patient, and looks almost vertically upward at the mirror held horizontally in the patient's throat. The illumination must be good. One sees the tracheal rings (perspectively shortened), and sometimes, in the depth, a whitish sagittal ridge, the bifurcation spur, and, on each sirle, the opening into a bronchus. On examining the posterior wall of the larynx, in the interaryten-oid region, the mirror is held a little further forward in the throat than ordinarily (method of Killian). iii. Lateral View of the Interior of the Larynx This is best obtained by the method of Avellis. Thus if one wish to examine the left side of the larynx, the patient bends his bead to the right, ind the back of the mirror is placed against the right side of the soft palate; one can get a good view of the edges of the left false cord and the left vocal lip, and, on plionation, can sometimes see the floor of the ventricle of Morgagni. For the pathological findings on laryngoscopio examination, see Special Diagnosis of Diseases of the Larynx. References Avellis (G.). Cursus der laryngoscopischen und more
