Electrolaryngography in near-total laryngectomy with myo-mucosal valved neoglottis

  • Waryam Singh (a1)


Near-total laryngectomy with myo-mucosal valved neoglottis is the most recent of the various surgical procedures for speech rehabilitation. The site and mechanism of phonatory function of the neoglottis has been investigated in eight patients by means of electrolaryngography. Results demonstrate substantial similarity in the nature of function of the neoglottis when compared with the normal human glottis.
