Laryngectomy patients often complain of dysphagia. It is an under-rated problem. 
Surgical techniques employed during a total laryngectomy can have a significant 
impact on the patient’s voice as well as swallowing function. This webinar provides 
an overview of surgical techniques for total laryngectomy and neopharyngeal 
reconstruction as well as dysphagia assessment and treatment techniques.  
Incidence, causes, prevention and (surgical) treatment options of post-laryngectomy 
dysphagia will also be presented. Finally, compensatory techniques, dietary changes 
and therapeutic techniques to improve outcomes will be discussed.
