This pilot study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the Nasal Airflow-Inducing Manoeuvre (NAIM) when employing a structured protocol as well as investigate if early rehabilitation has the potential to return olfaction to pre-operative levels in patients undergoing laryngectomy following laryngeal cancer. Prospective study of cases conducted during 1 year, 2009–2010, at the Department of Ear-, Nose and Throat at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Gothenburg, Sweden. Ten patients with laryngeal… CONTINUE READING
