II. Teil: Sitzungsbericht Freie Vorträge

The reconstructive laryngectomy after Staffieris technique; New method of voice rehabilitation


In 1970 Staffieri performed a total laryngectomy with reconstruction of a ‘glottis phonatoria’. Since 1 year this operation is also used in the ENT-clinic of Mainz University.

Firstly the technique is described in detail.

Reconstructive laryngectomy is indicated:
  1. 1.

    For all carcinomas of the larynx which are incurable with Cobalt-60-irradiation or partial resection.

  2. 2.

    The reconstructive laryngectomy is also used if the carcinoma has involved the superior hypopharynx in a not too high extent. Contraindication is the retrocricoidal carcinoma.
