Primary tracheoesophageal puncture with supraclavicular artery island flap after total laryngectomy or laryngopharyngectomy.

The supraclavicular artery island flap (SCAIF) is increasingly employed for laryngectomy reconstruction with excellent success. Although tracheoesophageal puncture (TEP) with intraoperative prosthesis placement is also positively reported, this is not described in patients following SCAIF. We review our experience with primary TEP with prosthesis placement and voice outcomes in patients after SCAIF reconstruction. Seven patients underwent SCAIF with primary TEP after laryngectomy from 2011 to 2013. Five underwent total laryngectomy (TL) and 2 underwent TL with partial pharyngectomy. All patients had 16 French Indwelling Blom-Singer prostheses placed intraoperatively without complications. Six patients achieved tracheoesophageal voice (median time = 1.5 months). Two patients required cricopharyngeal segment Botox injections. One patient remained aphonic. One patient developed prosthesis leakage addressed with prosthesis replacement. Our preliminary data demonstrate that similar to free tissue transfer reconstruction, primary TEP with intraoperative placement of the voice prosthesis at the time of SCAIF reconstruction is safe and effective.
