Ventricle of the larynx
|Ventricle of the larynx|
Coronal section of larynx and upper part of trachea, with Ventricle labeled at center left.
The ventricle of the larynx (also called the laryngeal sinus, laryngeal ventricle or Morgagni's sinus) is a fusiform fossa, situated between the ventricular and vocal folds on either side, and extending nearly their entire length. There is also a sinus of Morgagni in the pharynx.
The fossa is bounded, above, by the free crescentic edge of the ventricular fold; below, by the straight margin of the vocal fold and laterally, by the mucous membrane covering the corresponding thyroarytenoid muscle.
