Case description

The tracheoesophageal fistula and the upper oesophageal lumen upon voice prosthesis removal is presented in this video. If the leakage is present (for example upon drinking of coloured fluid), the prosthesis should be changed. In this case it was caused by candida infection. Signs of inflammation or crusting around this fistula has not be found due to earlier antifungal treatment. Nowadays the most common voice prosthesis (a form o voice rehabilitation after total laryngectomy) are: Blom-Singer, Provox, and Voicemaster.
