Laryngeal ventricle

Last revised by C Koolstra on 03 Apr 2022

The laryngeal ventricle is a slitlike, mucosa-lined, space located between the true and false vocal cords. It is often seen on lateral radiographs of the neck as an air-filled space between the true and false vocal cords. It should not be confused with the laryngeal vestibule.

Synonym sinus of Morgagni, not to beconfused with the sinus of Morgagni in the pharyngobasilar fascia of the nasopharynx.

Giovanni Battista Morgagni (1682-1771) was the Italian anatomist who originally described3 the laryngeal ventricle in his 1719 Adversaria Anatomica I.
