What is a laryngectomy?

A laryngectomy is the complete surgical removal of the larynx. The trachea below the larynx is opened, which creates a tracheostoma. After a complete laryngectomy, the patient looses vocal function and a prosthetic voice must be used.

Reasons for a laryngectomy

The main reason for removal of the larynx is a tumor in the larynx. There were 177,422 new larynx cancer cases worldwide in 2018. After a laryngectomy, patients may recover their vocal abilities through the following methods:

  • Esophageal speech (sometimes known as “burping speech”)
  • Shunt valve implants between the esophagus and trachea
  • Electronic speech aids
