1/4. Primary placement of a voice prosthesis on transposed colon after total pharyngolaryngoesophagectomy.

    BACKGROUND: Primary placement of a voice prosthesis may aid rehabilitation after total laryngectomy. methods: We present a rare clinical situation of a T4 NO MO squamous cell carcinoma of the hypopharynx and esophagus in a patient who had previously undergone a transmesocolic Billroth II gastrectomy. RESULTS: The patient benefited from a total pharyngolaryngoesophagectomy, with reconstruction using a transverse-descending colon transposition, and primary placement of a low-pressure voice prosthesis. CONCLUSION: Primary placement of a voice prosthesis may be successful even in a patient who requires extensive pharyngoesophageal reconstruction using transposed colon. To our knowledge, there has been no previous report of primary placement of a voice prosthesis on a colon autograft.

2/4. Tracheo-tracheal puncture for voice rehabilitation after laryngotracheal separation.

    For patients with intractable aspiration, laryngotracheal separation (LTS) may be the only means of protecting the airway. The LTS prevents pulmonary compromise caused by aspiration; however, airway separation from the larynx also prevents laryngeal phonation. This case report suggests a supplemental procedure to the LTS, which maintains airway protection yet allows for laryngeal communication.

3/4. Secondary placement of a voice prosthesis after total pharyngolaryngectomy with colon interposition: voice restoration in colon interposition.

    We present a patient treated by a total pharyngolaryngoesophagectomy and postoperative radiotherapy for a hypopharyngeal T4N2bM0 squamous cell carcinoma. The upper digestive tract was reconstructed with a pedicled left colon interposition through the posterior mediastinum. A voice prosthesis was placed 9 months after the initial treatment, following measurement of the tracheo-neopharyngeal wall thickness by sonography. Fifteen months after the total pharyngolaryngectomy, the patient remains free of recurrent disease and has successfully resumed speaking with the voice prosthesis.

4/4. Malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the hypopharynx.

    Malignant fibrous histiocytoma has been the most common soft-tissue sarcoma of late adult life. However, it is relatively uncommon in the head and neck. Furthermore, there has been no report of malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the hypopharynx in the literature. The first case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the hypopharynx is presented. The patient, a 70-year-old male, underwent extended laryngectomy and elective neck dissection with primary tracheoesophageal shunt operation and pharyngeal myotomy for voice restoration following total laryngectomy. For more than 2 years, there has been no evidence of the disease or metastasis. He has the satisfactory phonatory and swallowing function.
