Full Abstract: A puffed out neck in brass performance is a troublesome condition called, laryngocele. A pouch resulting from a protrusion of the laryngeal mucosa through a weak spot in the thyroid membrane above the laryngeal cartilage (voice box), this condition is usually harmless. It results from high pressure in the larynx and is correctable with a surgical procedure.
