The Provox Vega Puncture Set allows voice prosthesis insertion immediately after creating the tracheoesophageal (TE) puncture. Insertion is made in three steps – Protect, Puncture and Place.
Protect – The transparent pharynx protector (intended for primary puncture only) protects the pharyngeal walls. Puncture – The puncture needle creates the puncture and is used to introduce the GuideWire through the puncture site. Place – The TE puncture is gradually dilated when the dilator, attached to the GuideWire is pulled through the same. The voice prosthesis thereafter slides gently into position.
In a multicenter clinical study 100% of the voice prostheses could be placed using the Provox Vega Puncture Set; 89% of the procedures required no additional instruments.
