Abstract: Implantation of a voice prosthesis (VP) is a common surgical procedure for voice restoration in patients after total laryngectomy. Current procedures comprise surgical creation of a fistula by Tracheoesophageal Puncture (TEP) and insertion of a VP after fistula maturity. Leveraging on the advantages of Transnasal Esophagoscopy (TNE), a handheld mechatronic device is designed for subsequent insertion of the VP after TEP to allow for immediate voice restoration to the patient. Experimental results demonstrated the clinical viability of the proposed medical device and method for TEP and immediate prosthesis placement. © 2011 IEEE.
