Panel Discussion: Laryngectomy Surgery, Management and Rehabilitation During COVID-19

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been significant shifts in the management of patients with a total laryngectomy. This is due to recommendations to limit or eliminate any aerosol generating procedures (AGP) with the goal to protect both patients and health care providers during this crisis. The changes include decisions in regards to the surgery and timing of tracheoesophageal puncture, choice of type of voice prosthesis, airway management in the hospital and community, and voice prosthesis management. This has major implications for the patients as well as the HCPs who care for them and the recommendations impact directly on the care of patients with a total laryngectomy.
