The throat model weighs 800 grams and the height is 20 cm. It shows the tissues at 2 times normal size and can be separated into 5 parts (see the pictures on the left and read more about this below). It is supplied without a stand.

Anatomical features

Anatomically speaking, the larynx model primarily shows the larynx/throat (larynx) with the laryngeal cartilages (blue), the laryngeal muscles (brown) and the larynx's vascular and nerve supply (in red and yellow respectively). The model also shows the 2 closing mechanisms, which are the larynx (epiglottis) and vocal folds (plicae vocales) as well as the 2 joints (articulatio cricothyroidea and cricoarytenoidea).



On the right side of the model, the thyroid gland can be seen in orange (glandula thyroidea), which in front covers the lower part of the larynx and the upper part of the windpipe (trachea). The trachea in blue forms the lower part of the model and is seen with the characteristic "horseshoe-shaped" rings of cartilage. On the back of the thyroid gland are 2 of the parathyroid glands (normally there are 4 in humans).



Above the larynx, the bone of the tongue can be seen in sand color (os hyoideum), muscles etc. Although the pharynx is not defined on the back of the model, you can still sense/imagine a part of this vertical tube.



The model can be separated into 5 parts as follows:



From top to bottom (from the tongue bone to the lower end of the model's trachea), the model can be split "in the middle"
If the model is divided as mentioned above, the right part can also be divided at the lower edge of the thyroid cartilage
Furthermore, 2 muscles can be removed from the left side of the model (m. thyrohyoideus and m. cricothyroideus)

Product flexibility

In terms of movement, the throat model is not flexible. You cannot demonstrate movements in the 2 joints.

Clinical features

Clinically speaking, the model can be used to understand many disorders such as epiglottitis, vocal cord polyps, goiter, laryngeal oedema, and cancers.



Furthermore, the throat model can be used to understand examination methods such as laryngoscopy and treatments such as throat surgery.
