Summary

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

Concurrent Chemoradiation Versus Surgery With Adjuvant Therapy in Advanced Laryngopharyngeal Cancers

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...

Clinical Feasibility of New Tracheoesophageal Puncture Set

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...

Laryngectomy Education

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...

Functional Voice and Speech Outcomes Following Surgical Voice Restorations: A Comparison of Pharyngeal Construction Approaches

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the nature and quality of speech after removal of the voice box and all or part of the swallowing tube. The study is evaluating which type of surg...

A pneumatic Bionic Voice prosthesis-Pre-clinical trials of controlling the voice onset and offset.

Despite emergent progress in many fields of bionics, a functional Bionic Voice prosthesis for laryngectomy patients (larynx amputees) has not yet been achieved, leading to a lifetime of vocal disabili...

Bocca's hemipharyngo-total laryngectomy for hypopharyngeal carcinoma to avoid reconstruction with a pedicled flap.

Major pharyngeal defects after total pharyngolaryngectomy for hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) frequently demand reconstruction strategies that include myocutaneous pedicled flaps, such as...

Management of leaking tracheoesophageal puncture with hyaluronic acid injection.

Tracheoesophageal puncture (TEP) with voice prosthesis is a widely used technique for voice restoration in laryngectomy and pharyngolaryngectomy patients. Complications include leakage around the pros...

Association of Positive Initial Margins With Survival Among Patients With Squamous Cell Carcinoma Treated With Total Laryngectomy.

Frozen-section analysis of margin status is routinely performed during total laryngectomy for squamous cell carcinoma; in the case of positive initial frozen margins, re-resection to negative margins ...

Quality of life in patients with larynx cancer in Latin America: Comparison between laryngectomy and organ preservation protocols.

The effect on quality of life (QOL) of laryngectomy and organ preservation protocols is important in decision making. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to evaluate QOL outcomes of patients wit...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
