(under the class definition) Subject matter manufactured or adapted to replace or assist either: (a) the portion of a human body respiratory tract containing the vocal cords, i.e., a larynx; or (b) the portion of a human body respiratory tract descending from the larynx to the bronchi, i.e., a trachea; or (c) the portion of a human body respiratory tract leading from the lower end of the trachea to the lung, i.e., a bronchi; or (d) any combination of a larynx, trachea or bronchi.
