Description

Laryngectomy is a surgical procedure that involves complete or partial removal of the voice box (larynx). 

Total Laryngectomy involves removal of the complete larynx. A part of the pharynx may or may not be taken out. Pharynx is the mucous membrane-lined passage between your nasal passages and esophagus. A patient who has had this surgery will need to help with swallowing, breathing and talking.

There are a few less invasive techniques that can help patients depending on the severity of their case. These are: endoscopic (or transoral resection), vertical partial laryngectomy, horizontal or supraglottic partial laryngectomy, and supracricoid partial laryngectomy.

Indication

This procedure is suggested by a doctor to

  • Treat throat cancer
  • Repair injured or damaged larynx
Pre-Procedure

The doctor may recommend the following:

  • A thorough physical exam and routine tests
  • Fasting for 8 to 10 hours prior to the surgery
  • Stopping blood thinners, at least 10 days before the surgery
  • Strictly stop smoking and alcohol, at least a week before the surgery
  • Consulting a speech therapist to prepare for post-op
During-Procedure

Laryngectomy is a major procedure performed by an experienced head and neck surgeon. It is performed under general anesthesia and may take upto 5 to 7 hours.

After anesthesia is administred, during the procedure,

  • The surgeon makes a cut in the neck. Special care is taken to preserve major blood vessels.
  • The larynx and surrounding tissues are removed. Nearby lymph nodes may be removed.
  • Next, an opening is made in the trachea in front of the neck. This will help with breathing after surgery.
  • The esophagus, surrounding muscles and skin will be sutured.
  • The surgeon may also opt for a tracheoesophaheal puncture (TEP) where a small hole in the trachea is made and a small prosthesis is placed. This helps the patient speak after the larynx has been removed.
Post-Procedure

After the procedure is complete, the patient will not be able to speak. IV Line will be administered to fulfill the nutrition requirement.

The patient can swallow semi-solid food after 2 to 4 days. Generally, the patient is discharged within 7 days.

Regular followups with speech therapist will be required. 

Risk and Complication

Laryngectomy involves the following risks and complications:

  • Problems in swallowing or eating
  • Reaction to anesthesia
  • Bleeding or Blood clotting
  • Infection
  • Breathing problems
  • Heart problems
