What is Laryngectomy?

Laryngectomy is the surgical removal procedure of the larynx and separation of the airway from the mouth, nose and oesophagus. The larynx is made of cartilage and divided into three sections like supraglottis, glottis and subglottis. 

Different types of laryngectomy including:

  1. Total Laryngectomy.
  2. Partial Laryngectomy.

Laryngectomy surgery signs include:

  1. A sore throat or a cough.
  2. Ear pain.
  3. A lump in the neck
  4. Blood tinged sputum
  5. Voice changes.

Laryngectomy surgery risk factors include:-

  1. Risks of anaesthesia
  2. Bleeding
  3. Infection
  4. Temporary dizziness
  5. Problems swallowing and eating
  6. Problems speaking
  7. Fistulas
  8. Throat or larynx narrowing, 

 

  • The patient is required to go for PSC ( Pre-surgery check-up )  to do some blood test, ECG and ECH for Cardiac check-up and urine tests to know he /she is fit for surgery or not.
  • Before the operation, you’ll be asked to sign a consent form, which gives the surgeon permission to carry out the treatment.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The patient is admitted to the hospital on same days before the procedures and advised to remain empty stomach/Fasting.
  • Thinners medicines have to stop before ten days of surgery.

 

Before surgery, the surgeon and anaesthesia doctors will guide you about the benefits and risk factor of Laryngectomy surgery.

Step 1 – Anesthesia: Laryngectomy surgery takes 2 to 3 hours depending upon the procedures by giving local or general anaesthesia to relieve pain.

Step 2 – The incision: For the larynx Endoscopic laser surgery is more effective. The ENT makes an incision on the neck. The surgeon inserts an endoscope (a tube with a camera) into the throat to locate cancer.

There are different types of laryngectomy procedures including:

  1. Total Laryngectomy: In this procedure, the whole larynx (voice box) is removed and there is no connection for air to enter the lungs.  The surgeon makes a transesophageal puncture (TEP) and or put a hole in both the trachea and oesophagus, for future prosthetic voice box placement. The procedure is called a tracheotomy or a stoma.  After the surgery, A speech therapist can help patients learn to speak again.
  2. Partial Laryngectomy: In this procedure, only part of the larynx (voice box) is removed.   If a tumour is small, a partial laryngectomy is performed, by which only a part of the larynx, usually one vocal cord, is removed. Partial laryngectomies are also often performed in conjunction with other cancer treatments, such as radiation therapy or chemotherapy. After a partial laryngectomy patient can still speak, but the voice might be hoarse or weak.

Step 3 – Closing the incisions: The ENT surgeon flaps the skin after the surgery with the help of Sutures, skin adhesives, tapes or clips that close the skin incisions.

Step 4 –The results: The success rate depends on the patient, surgeon experience and quality.  Ideally, removal of the larynx will remove all cancerous material. The person will recover from the operation, make lifestyle adjustments, and return to an active life.

The doctor will give complete information about post care of surgery, regarding recovery; proper caring of incisions, taking medications, managing and follow instructions for swallowing food and drink. Stitches or staples will be removed after 7 to 10 days of surgery.  The patient must undergo speech therapy to achieve the best results.  Chemotherapy or radiation therapy might be needed.

The success rate of this surgery is very well more than 99%, but depending on patient condition and surgeon experience.  The patient will recover from the operation, make lifestyle adjustments, and return to an active life.

  • Are you board-certified ENT surgeon?
  • How many years’ experience of you has in this field?
  • How many Laryngectomy surgeries are you doing every day?
  • Am I a good patient for you to this procedure?
  • Let me know success rates and how long time will take for recovery?
  • What treatment plan do you recommend and Why?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of Laryngectomy surgery?
  • How should I prepare for this Laryngectomy surgery?
  • How long I have to stay in the hospital and outside the hospital?
  • What are risk factors for this type of Laryngectomy surgery?
  • When can I go for normal activities, including exercise?
  • Do I have stitches, staples, and/or bandages?
  • Do I have a scar or other permanent effects from the Laryngectomy surgery?
  • What type of results can I expect?
  • Do I need to go another surgery in the future?
  • Do I need any follow-up appointments or tests after my Laryngectomy surgery?
