Anatomy and Physiology: Facial, Oral, and Velopharyngeal Structures during nasal breathing or when velopharyngeal activity ceases (Skolnick & Cohn, 1989). Because Passavant’s ridge is a localized projection, it should not be confused with the generalized anterior movement of the posterior pharyngeal wall during speech. , 1993; Perry, 2011). This forms the muscular ridge, which projects from the posterior pharyngeal wall.

It is contained within the anterior faucial pillar and may be subject to possible damage during tonsillectomy. Palatopharyngeus Muscles The salpingopharyngeus muscles cannot have a significant role in achieving velopharyngeal closure given its size and location. These muscles arise from the inferior border of the torus tubarius, which is at the upper level of the pharynx. They then course vertically along the lateral pharyngeal wall and under the salpingopharyngeal fold. The function of the palatopharyngeus muscles is not well understood.

In this case, all the velopharyngeal structures contribute to closure, and the closure pattern resembles a true sphincter. Witzel and Posnick (1989) found this pattern in 23% of the individuals in their study. Another 5% had a circular pattern with Passavant’s ridge. Although Passavant’s ridge seems to be most common in individuals with a circular pattern of closure, it is also found with the other patterns of velopharyngeal closure (Skolnick & Cohn, 1989). The least common pattern of closure is the sagittal pattern.
