Professional Series Webinar: Central Leakage

Tracheoesophageal puncture with a prosthesis (TEP) is considered the gold standard in communication restoration after total laryngectomy. Regular maintenance of the TEP, including valve changes, is accepted as the standard of care. However, data from a recently published study (Lewin et al., 2017*) suggests that VP duration demonstrates a lower durability than historically reported, increasing this burden of maintenance on both the clinician and the patient. One indication of device failure is leakage through the center of the prosthesis, or central leakage. Understanding the underlying reasons for central leakage may provide insights to appropriate intervention. This one hour live, interactive webinar will address central leakage of the prosthesis and potential solutions to address sub-optimal wear of the prosthesis.

The participant will be able to:

  • Discuss current literature detailing TEP device life
  • Identify 2 reasons for central leakage
  • Discuss potential solutions for increasing TEP device life
