Abstract

Voice rehabilitation in the laryngectomy patient has been a major goal of reconstructive laryngeal surgery. 36 patients underwent laryngectomy with the creation of a phonatory neoglottis as outlined by Staffieri. In 13 patients good voice rehabilitation was achieved. In 23 patients who failed to develop voice production, altered swallowing function was the major problem.
