The Laryngeal Separator is developed with a very flexible silicone.
Its dimensions and general morphology are intended to achieve and maintain a greater laryngeal separation at the level of the anterior commissure, by the intercordal introduction of a wedge of variable length, which is kept in position thanks to the lateral wings, of 15mm x 20mm. These dimensions remain constant in all models.
The Laryngeal Separator can be used as a complement to hemilaryngectomy to prevent the appearance of stenosis, although it can also expand the subglottal clearance in cases of stenosis of different aetiologies. The chordal paralysis does not prevent its use. Occasionally, a separator has been installed after removing a laryngeal stent.
- Laryngeal stenosis.
- Subglottal stenosis.
- It can be a complement of the Laryngeal Stent treatment.
- After the hemilaryngectomy.
The Laryngeal Separator is used only by surgeons and is applied after open laryngectomy with an anterior laryngeal fissure.
It does not require extra cares, just the ones carried out in the postoperative of laryngeal surgery.
The product should not be reused because this can cause cross contamination.
