6 Possible Causes for Calcified Cricoid Cartilage

  • Chondrosarcoma

    Computed tomography revealed a calcified mass in the right cricoid cartilage with intraluminal and extraluminal extension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tracheal Calcification

    Cricoid and arytenoid cartilages calcify in the third decade, but somewhat later than thyroid cartilage.[dynamicchiropractic.com] Fig. 2: Laryngeal cartilage calcifications: a) Triticeous, b) Superior cornua, c) Thyroid and d) Cricoid. Triticeous cartilages are variable.[dynamicchiropractic.com] Ossification of the cricoid can be identified even in the presence of thyroid cartilage ossification.[dynamicchiropractic.com]

  • Laryngeal Stenosis

    cartilages, but separate from the cricoid ( arrowhead ).[ajnr.org] […] arytenoids, which was separate from the cricoid cartilage ( Fig 1 A ).[ajnr.org] Identifying a calcified interarytenoid scar band separate from the cricoid cartilage is important for presurgical planning, and this band can be definitively treated.[ajnr.org]

  • Cricoarytenoid Ankylosis

    .  This can lead to pre-epiglottic space bleeding & posterior displacement of epiglottis  Calcified thyroid cartilage gets shattered resulting in communited fracture 12.[slideshare.net] Cricoid cartilage  Invariably associated with thyroid fractures  Anterior part of the cricoid mostly fractured Cricotracheal seperation  Final soft tissue injury,usually[slideshare.net]

  • Laryngeal Fracture

    .  This can lead to pre-epiglottic space bleeding & posterior displacement of epiglottis  Calcified thyroid cartilage gets shattered resulting in communited fracture 12.[slideshare.net] Cricoid cartilage  Invariably associated with thyroid fractures  Anterior part of the cricoid mostly fractured Cricotracheal seperation  Final soft tissue injury,usually[slideshare.net]

  • Teratoma
