Tracheoesophageal (TE) speech using a voice prosthesis and hands-free speaking valve with an intraluminal attachment is the gold standard for voice restoration after total laryngectomy. Modification of a standard self-retaining silicone cannula or laryngectomy button often aids in the attachment of a speaking valve within the tracheal lumen for hands-free TE speech production. An increased number of laryngectomized individuals are able to achieve hands-free TE speech when the standard length, flange, and diameter of a silicone button is customized to accommodate individual tracheostomal contours. A technique is presented for modification of a standard silicone laryngectomy button to facilitate hands-free TE speech after total laryngectomy.
