Supplement pharyngolaryngeal deficient functions by insertion of a prosthesis with valves in order to allow tracheotomy closing (when applicable) and / or to allow restoration of god swallowing capacity. The secondary objective is to study the concept of a special valves system for the development of an artificial larynx

Condition Intervention Phase
Swallowing Disorders
Laryngeal Neoplasms
Device: Implantation of intralaryngeal prosthesis with a new double valve system, allowing tracheotomy closing

Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Artificial Larynx : Intralaryngeal Prosthesis With Valve in Major Swallowing Troubles

Further study details as provided by University Hospital, Strasbourg, France:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Respiratory evaluation [ Time Frame: Day : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 15 - month :1, 3, 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Nasofibroscopy [ Time Frame: Day : 15 - month : 1, 3, 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36 ]

Enrollment: 10
Study Start Date: February 2008
Study Completion Date: August 2013
Primary Completion Date: August 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: Implantation of intralaryngeal prosthesis with a new double valve system, allowing tracheotomy closing
    An artificial Larynx composed of a tracheobronxane ® Dumon ST prosthesis and a valves system will be implant under general anesthesia by endoscopy. The 3 first patients will be patients with tracheotomy, in order to allow breathing through this tracheotomy in case of valves dysfunction.
