Experience with the ESKA-Herrmann Tracheostoma Valve
Not only voice loss but also the existence of a permanent tracheostoma are severe handicaps after laryngectomy. We should therefore try to achieve: a) Intelligible fluent speech with goodExpand
[Cinematographic study of the pathologic mechanisms of aspiration pneumonia].
Five case-examples are presented illustrating the possibility of differentiation between three types of aspiration by means of cineradiography, the so-called pre, intra- and postdeglutitive aspiration, that is aspiration before or after triggering of the swallowing reflex. Expand
Experiments in surgical voice restoration using valve prostheses.
The extent to which surgery can create a low-resistance vibratile upper digestive tract is described, and the individual factors that influence flow resistance and which are due to the prosthesis were most important. Expand
