A Case of Using a Tracheostoma Valve after Near Total Laryngectomy
Previously, laryngectomized patients can achieve speech with tracheoesophageal device. Tracheoesophageal speech is currently one of the best methods of postlaryngectomy voice rehabilitation. But, tracheoesophageal speakers have some troublesome with digital occlusion of tracheostoma in every speaking time. Therefore, the tracheostoma valve has been introduced since 1982, and this valve could eliminate the need of tracheostoma digital occlusion. Currently, couple of tracheostoma valves has been introduced and developed. In this article, we introduced the 3 representative tracheostoma valves. Also, we discussed their use and characteristics. Traditionally the tracheostoma valve is used in total laryngectomized patients. We introduced one case using a tracheostoma valve after near total laryngectomy. Advantage and disadvantage of Blom-Singer valve and BIVONA II valve during using in this patients are discussed.
