The benefits of this new material, as demonstrated in animal studies and preliminary studies in man, could provide the answer to problems encountered by surgeons in the field of phonatory implants. This novel application is a step towards resolving the very real problems which still exist in the field today. The functional concept, which will allow better control over integrating implants in tissue, should also, it is hoped, favour cellular colonization, thereby fulfilling a currently unmet medical need. The aim is to avoid well-identified potential complications linked to the use of silicone-only implants (with or without a surface coating), like leakage around the prosthesis (by cellular colonization), and so reduce the risk of protrusion/extrusion of the prosthesis as far as possible, and to avoid trauma to the peri-prosthetic tissues by repeated interventions

Cost-effectiveness Analysis of Vocal Rehabilitation With Strengthened Tracheoesophageal Voice Implant Prosthesis Versus Standard Voice Prosthesis in Case of Repeated Intra-prosthetic Leakage After Total Laryngectomy
The purpose of this study is to determine the cost-effectiveness of vocal rehabilitation with reinforced inter-tracheoesophageal voice prosthesis versus standard voice prosthesis in case o...
Surgery with post operative radiotherapy (PORT) had been the mainstay of treatment for advanced laryngeal-pharyngeal cancers (ALHC) until the eighth decade of the past century. Total laryn...
During a total laryngectomy a puncture is created in the tracheoesophageal wall and a voice prosthesis is inserted. With this voice prosthesis the patient learns to speak again. During thi...
Patients undergoing total laryngectomy are at high risk for 30-day unplanned readmission. Many of these readmissions are related to stomal care, and it is thought that the readmissions cou...
Studies over a 40 year period have reported inadequate education and counseling for persons with laryngectomy; however, several long-term trends, including centralization of laryngectomy surgeries i...
Protection of suture line of neopharynx after a laryngectomy or near total laryngectomy with vascularized tissues is of utmost importance in preventing a wound related complication.
Successful speech rehabilitation has a great impact on the quality of life in totally laryngectomized patients.
Thyroid lobectomy is recommended with total laryngectomy in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines. However, it is associated with a 32% to 89% risk of hypothyroidism, which is a problem...
Laryngectomy stomas are formed following excision of the larynx, usually for the treatment of an underlying malignancy. This is a permanent stoma in which the trachea is separated from the oesophagus...
Total or partial excision of the larynx.
Pathological processes that affect voice production, usually involving VOCAL CORDS and the LARYNGEAL MUCOSA. Voice disorders can be caused by organic (anatomical), or functional (emotional or psychological) factors leading to DYSPHONIA; APHONIA; and defects in VOICE QUALITY, loudness, and pitch.
That component of SPEECH which gives the primary distinction to a given speaker's VOICE when pitch and loudness are excluded. It involves both phonatory and resonatory characteristics. Some of the descriptions of voice quality are harshness, breathiness and nasality.
Tumors or cancer of the PHARYNX.
A variety of techniques used to help individuals utilize their voice for various purposes and with minimal use of muscle energy.
