Intractable aspiration is a life-threatening problem and often requires a procedure for blocking or separating the larynx from the bronchial tree. The disadvantage of these techniques is a compromise of phonation. We report the use of a speech fistula after laryngotracheal diversion to restore voice. It allows for the definitive treatment of aspiration, while maintaining the use of the vocal folds for phonation.
