Pharyngeal tonsils (adenoides) present in the submucosa Floor: upper surface of soft palate & the pharyngeal isthmus (opening between the free margin of soft palate and posterior pharyngeal wall) Slide 12: Anterior wall: shows posterior nasal apertures Posterior wall: supported by anterior arch of atlas (C1) Lateral wall shows: Opening of auditory tube Tubal elevation (produced by posterior margin of tube) Pharyngeal recess Tubal tonsil Salpingopharyngeal fold (raised by salpingo-pharyngeus muscle) Oropharynx : Oropharynx Behind the oral cavity (in front of 2nd&3rd Cervical vertebra) From the soft palate superiorly to tip of epiglottis inferiorly Communicates: Anteriorly with the oral cavity Superiorly with the nasopharynx Inferiorly with the hypopharynx The paatine tonsils lie laterally between the anterior and posterior pilars Slide 14: The anterior pillar formed by palatoglossus muscle The posterior pillar formed By palatopharyngeus m The tonsils lie between the Two pillars Oropharynx : Oropharynx Lies behind the mouth Extends from soft palate to upper border of epiglottis Boundaries: Roof: soft palate and pharyngeal isthmus Floor: posterior one third of tongue, median & lateral glossoepiglottic folds, and the valleculae Slide 16: Anterior wall: opening of the oral cavity Posterior wall: supported by body of C2 and upper part of body of C3 vertebra Lateral wall shows: Palatopharyngeal folds posterior to the palatoglossal folds. Palatine tonsil located between them in the Tonsillar fossa Hypopharynx : Hypopharynx Behind the Larynx (in front of 3rd to 6th Cervical vertebra) From the tip of epiglottis superiorly to the lower border of cricoid cartilage Inferiorly Communicates: Anteriorly with the Larynx Superiorly with the oropharynx Inferiorly with the esophagus Slide 19: The hypopharynx does not only lie behind the larynx BUT also Projects laterally on each side of the larynx So it is formed of : Postcricoid region ( behind the larynx) Two pyriform fossa (on each side of the larynx Seen from behind Cross section Piriform Fossa : Piriform Fossa A small depression situated on either side of the laryngeal inlet Leads obliquely backward and downwrd from the region of the back of the tongue to the esophagus It is a common site for the lodging of foreign bodies Bounded: Medially by the aryepiglottic fold Laterally by the lamina of thyroid cartilage & the thyrohyoid membrane. Branches of internal laryngeal (& recurrent laryngeal) nerve lie deep to the mucous membrane of the fossa and are vulnerable to injury during removal of a foreign body Anatomy of The pharynx Structure : Anatomy of The pharynx Structure The wall is formed of 4 layers 1-Mucous membrane 2- pharyngeal aponeurosis 3-muscle layer 4-Bucco-pharyngeal fascia Stratified squamous epithelium except the nasopharynx, it is pseudo-stratified with goblet cells Loose connective tissue which contains lymphoid tissue that aggregates in some areas forming tonsils (Waldayer’s ring) Formed of 3 muscles, superior middle and inferior constrictor muscles A thin coat of connective tissue Pharyngeal Wall : Pharyngeal Wall It is a musculo-membranous wall, composed of: Mucosa & submucosa Pharyngobasilar fascia Muscles: circular & longitudinal Buccopharyngeal fascia The buccopharyngeal fascia is separated from the prevertebral fascia by the retropharyngeal space. Circular (Constrictor) Muscles : Circular (Constrictor) Muscles Three in number: Superior, Middle & Inferior Extend around the pharynx and are inserted posteriorly into a fibrous raphe that extends from the pharyngeal tubercle on the occipital bone to the esophagus The three muscles overlap each other The gap between the superior border of the superior constrictor and the occipital bone is filled by thickened pharyngobasilar fascia M S I Slide 24: Superior constrictor Origin: medial pterygoid plate, pterygoid hamulus, pterygomandibular ligament, mylohyoid line Insertion: pharyngeal tubercle, pharyngeal raphe Middle constrictor Origin: lower part of stylohyoid ligament, greater & lesser cornu of hyoid bone Insertion: pharyngeal raphe Slide 26: Inferior constrictor Origin: lamina of thyroid cartilage, cricoid cartilage Insertion: pharyngeal raphe Functions: The constrictor muscles propel the bolus of food down into the esophagus Cricopharygeus (lower fibers of the inferior constrictor) act as a sphincter, preventing the entry of air into the esophagus between the acts of swallowing Zenker’s diverticulum : Zenker’s diverticulum Longitudinal Muscles : Longitudinal Muscles Three in number: Stylopharyngeus Salpingopharyngeus Palatpharyngeous Function: Elevate the larynx & pharynx during swallowing Slide 31: Stylopharyngeus Origin: styloid process Insertion: posterior border of thyroid cartilage Salpingopharyngeus Origin: auditory tube Insertion: blends with palatoglossus Palatopharyngeus Origin: palatine aponeurosis Insertion: posterior border of thyroid cartilage Blood supply : Blood supply From the External Carotid Artery & its branches 1- Tonsillar artery (from Facial Artery) 2-Ascending palatine artery (from Facial Artery) 3-Ascending pharyngeal Artery (from external carotid) 4-Descending palatine artery ( from Maxillary artery. 5-Dorsalis lingulae artery (from Lingual artery) Nerve Supply : Nerve Supply Motor ---► X Except : Stylopharyngeus --►IX Sensory --► Nasopharynx: V Oropharynx: IX Laryngopharynx: X Autonomic: sympathetic: SCG Parasympathetic: through VII Clinical Notes : Clinical Notes Adenoides (enlarged pharyngeal tonsils) & adenoidectomy. Adenoids results in obstruction to nasal breathing and make mouth breathing necessary. The patient develops a typical facial expression called the ‘adenoid facies’. May also cause impaired hearing Otitis media (middle ear infection), secondary to infection of nasopharynx Tonsillitis & Tonsillectomy Adenoid facies Slide 40: Peritonsillar abcess (quinsy), is a complication of tonsillitis and consists of a collection of pus beside the tonsil (peritonsillar space). Piriform fossa: a common site for the lodging of foreign bodies Pharyngeal pouch, posteromedial herniation of mucosal diverticulum between thyropharyngeal and cricopharyngeal parts of the inferior constrictor muscle leading to dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing) . It occurs mainly in older people Retropharyngeal abcess , may spread to the superior mediastinum Swallowing (Deglution) : Swallowing (Deglution) Stages of Swallowing (Deglutition) : Stages of Swallowing (Deglutition) Oral stage (voluntary) Pharyngeal stage Esophageal stage Slide 46: Thank You You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
