Laryngoplasty as outlined by STAFFIERI (1973) is a new surgical technique for vocal rehabilitation after total laryngectomy. After the creation of the neoglottis however many complications such as aspiration and narrowing occur. Out of 36 patients who underwent total laryngectomy and vocal rehabilitation with the technique of Staffieri 13 achieved a good result. Twenty-three patients failed to develop voice production as a result of altered swallowing function.
