Abstract

The technic herein described for the reproduction of anatomic and pathologic models in latex rubber includes several principles which were not included in previously described methods, and has been simplified for ready application by the postgraduate student in otorhinolaryngology.1 The process is most applicable to those specimens which have numerous undercuts or deep crevices and cells. The model of the larynx shown in figure 1 is representative of the more complicated types and lends itself admirably to demonstration, as its reproduction embodies most of the major problems one will encounter in this technic. The reproduction of this specimen is more involved than that of simple types, but the principles applying thereto may be readily employed in the construction of practically all forms and shapes of models.

The following step by step description of the reproduction in latex rubber of the plaster of paris larynx model (fig. 1 A) will furnish
