Medical - Medical (general) / epiglottis/throat
Norwegian term or phrase: suggestions please
This is an awful paragraph, full of typos and it's causing a nightmare, particularly the following sentence, marked **xxx**:
Går nå så ned med et flexibelt og regid laryngoscop og ser at det i området fra der epiglottis er borte **motfalt bilat.der stramme arrdrag mot cricoidbruksen**. Får fint scopet gjennom denne spalten og ser på relativt normale stemmebånd med symmetrisk bevegelighet.

I believe that cricoidbruksen is a typo and that's cricoid box, but does anyone know what 'motfalt' is? Could this be 'mitfalt', which appears to be German in fact (there is another German-looking word in the text, maybe because one of the doctors is German-based).
Any advice or ideas would be appreciated asap.

cricoid cartilage
Explanation:
Cricoidbrusken = cricoid cartilage.
The rest of the sentence is rather meaningless, and to make any sort of reasonable translation, you need a revision of the source text. I think I would have refused to translate this.

Thanks! Would you believe it, the end client said that 'that part wasn't needed anyway because it was something the patient didn't need to know and the doctor to use as a basis for a decision. Crystal balls or what!
