Our study was carried out to investigate the presence of known differences in voice and articulation quality after total laryngectomy. Patients provided phonation with tracheoesophageal speech prosthesis. We recorded patients ’ voice onset time (VOT) values – an important parameter of acoustic analysis.

Abstract Microbial community structure and its shift after laryngectomy in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) patients were investigated. Thirty swab samples of LSCC prior to laryngectomy (SLC), 18 samples after 1-weeks laryngectomy (SLCA1w), and 30 samples after 24-week laryngectomy (SLCA24w) from 30 LSCC patients were sourced. Microbial diversity was profiled through sequencing the V3-4 variable region of the 16S ribosomal ribonucleic acid (rRNA) gene. Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) was used to validate the V3-4 region of 16S rRNA sequence data. The community structure and function...

ConclusionOur study demonstrated the surgical and topographical features of the ibSLN with respect to the THM, and provided a more precise knowledge of its anatomy in laryngectomy patients. It thus may help head and neck surgeons identify this nerve.
