Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Experience with laryngotracheal reconstruction (LTR) has resulted in and continues to yield modifications and refinements in approach and technique with the goal to restore and maintain total laryngeal function. In addition to airway obstruction, the laryngeal functions of phonation and swallowing also may be affected by the underlying injury as well as by procedures designed to enlarge the airway. This paper discusses various problems encountered with phonation and swallowing in pediatric patients who underwent LTR and postoperative patients who were seen during the year July 1, 1990, through June 30, 1991. Phonation problems became apparent as long-term difficulties that persisted after tracheotomy decannulation. Swallowing was frequently a short-term perioperative problem while a stent was in place following LTR. The approaches and techniques that have been employed to treat, minimize, and prevent these problems are discussed.
