Do not include the cartilages of the windpipe in the stitches.
But upon the joints it does not lessen, as there is nothing but cartilages and tendons.
They are fixed by means of cartilages, on the back of the hinge.
This is most happily provided for, by the cartilages and mucus of the joints.
Attached at the back, the two cartilages do not, however, meet in front.
Further, muscles and cartilages are not all of the same texture.
Both of these factors force the cartilages slightly outwards.
The result of this action is the new position of the cartilages and vocal bands, which is shown by red outlines.
At the same time I satisfied myself of the existence of a pair of cartilages—the cuneiform cartilages described in the Appendix.
The action of these cartilages renders possible the production of the head tones, but they are not found in every larynx.
