Event description

Description

MEE/Stanford Update in Tracheoesophageal Voice Restoration and Laryngectomy Care: 2019 will provide practitioners who care for laryngectomy patients with a comprehensive overview of the current standard of care practices for management of disorders in this region as well as an introduction and review of evolving and innovative treatment approaches.

Distinguished faculty from Harvard Medical School as well as from prominent programs nationally will present a series of didactic lectures and participate in open panels, which cover the evaluation and management of surgical considerations, including: primary vs. secondary tracheoesophageal voice restoration procedures, dysphagia after total laryngectomy, pulmonary and olfactory issues, as well as dental complications and oral hygiene issues following tracheoesophageal puncture procedures. Pertinent rehabilitative issues will similarly be addressed during specific sessions. The course will also focus on providing the attendees with live clinical demonstrations that include the evaluation of patient and prosthesis selection techniques, the initial insertion of a voice prosthesis, current issues related to medical, surgical, and behavioral complications, and their impact on tracheoesophageal voice restoration.

Open interaction between faculty and participants will be encouraged throughout the course with particular emphasis during the scheduled panel discussions on day one and during the clinical demonstrations on day two.
