Laryngectomy Cost in Bangladesh
The surgical removal of the larynx is known as laryngectomy. Your vocal cords, which enable you to create sound, are housed in the larynx, which is a part of your throat. The larynx is the tube that connects your mouth and nose to your lungs. It also protects your respiratory system by storing food and drink in your oesophagus rather than your lungs.
A total laryngectomy is where the whole larynx is removed. It necessitates the use of a permanent tracheostomy stoma.
A partial laryngectomy is when part of the larynx is removed. In certain cases, the tracheostomy stoma is just temporary.
Hemilaryngectomy is a partial laryngectomy in which only one of the two vocal cords is removed.
Supraglottic laryngectomy is a partial laryngectomy in which the section of the larynx above the vocal cords is removed (supraglottis). After the surgery, the speech will return to normal.
