Abstract

Functional rehabilitation of post-laryngectomy patients is a challenging task; this includes achieving optimal speech and swallowing outcomes. Botox injections are utilised to improve pharyngoesophageal segment tonicity to improve speech and swallowing outcomes. We propose a novel and efficacious technique using a portable video-laryngoscope, GlideScope®, to directly visualise the injection of botulinum toxin in total laryngectomy patients with severe radiation-induced changes.
