Voice rehabilitation after total laryngectomy More than years after the first laryngectomy, voice preservation remains a remarkable challenge. A number of surgical techniques have been proposed, yet complications related to aspiration, recurrent disease, or voice failure have been frequent. Abstract Comprehensive rehabilitation after total laryngectomy is more than just restoration of the voice alone. Due to central position in the upper aerodigestive tract, its removal requires. The rehabilitation of total laryngectomized patients with tracheoesophageal voice with VP, after primary or secondary TEP, proved to be a more reproducible method and with fewer complications to patients 1,3, Vocal rehabilitation with esophageal voice has success rate of 24 to 26% 6, 12, but with VP this rate is increased to 58% to. Having a total laryngectomy removes your larynx and vocal cords, so the way you speak after a laryngectomy is going to change. Your voice will sound different than it did before because it is no longer coming from your vocal cords.

Voice rehabilitation is commonly achieved by oesophageal speech, an artificial larynx, or the creation of a trachea- oesophageal fistula with insertion of vocal prosthesis. As is known, the advantages of prosthetic speech are immediate phonation, simple training, longer phonation time, greater volume and better intelligibility. Introduction Voice rehabilitation after total laryngectomy is a major socio-economic challenge. Voice rehabilitation can be achieved by voice prostheses, which provide rapid patient satisfaction. Enlarged tracheo-oesophageal puncture is a frequent complication and can be difficult to manage. Speech Therapy after Laryngectomy: Vocal and Swallow Rehabilitation.

If this fails, a vibrating sound source for speech can be acquired, either by the Cited by: 4. Vocal rehabilitation in laryngectomized patients can be attained by surgical (tracheoesophageal speech) or conservative methods (oesophageal speech or artificial larynx). We prospectively studied voice restoration in 37 patients who underwent total laryngectomy in the period from February to February Surgical vocal rehabilitation after total laryngectomy. This module will help health professionals understand the impact on speech for patients undergoing a total laryngectomy for laryngeal cancer and the issues around surgical voice rehabilitation techniques.
