A modification of the Blom-Singer valve for restoration of voice after laryngectomy


Journal of Laryngology and Otology 96(11): 1005-1011
A modification of the Blom-Singer valve for restoration of voice after laryngectomy
The authors have been involved in developing a modification of the Blom-Singer valved prosthesis for restoration of voice after laryngectomy. This is a case report on the first patient who underwent this procedure in Britain. It was found essential that a different design of valved prosthesis be invented and this is described. Aspects for consideration when selecting a potential candidate for this procedure are outlined, and guidelines given for choosing suitable patients.
