Abstract [en]

The contribution of the nasal and paranasal cavities to vocal tract resonator properties is unclear. Here we investigate resonance phenomena of paranasal sinuses with and without selective occlusion of the middle meatus, and the sphenoidal as well as the maxillary ostium in a cadaveric situs. Nasal and paranasal cavities of the thiel-embalmed cadaver were excited by sine-tone sweeps from a earphone in the epipharynx. A microphone at the nostrils picked up the response. Different conditions with blocked and unblocked middle meatus and sphenoidal ostium were tested. Additionally, infundibulotomy was performed allowing direct access to and selective occlusion of the maxillary ostium. Response curves showed high reproducibility. A marked dip was observed after removing single sided occlusion of the middle meatus and the sphenoidal ostium. A marked low frequency dip was also detected after removal of occlusion of maxillary ostium following infundibulotomy. Reproducible frequency responses of nasal tract can be derived from cadaver measurements. Marked acoustic effects of the maxillary sinus appeared only after direct exposure of the maxillary ostium following infundibulotomy.
