Safety and Efficacy of Primary vs. Secondary Tracheo-Esophageal Puncture (TEP) for the Insertion of Voice Prosthesis

Abstract

The success of restoring vocal communication in total laryngectomees has improved significantly after the introduction of the trachea-oesophageal puncture (TEP) and insertion of voice prosthesis (VP) as first described by Singer and Blom in 1980; the procedure has progressively gained popularity to be universally recognised as a routine procedure for speech restoration after total laryngectomy [1].
