Blom Singer - Classic Indwelling Voice Prostheses

Since its introduction in 1994, the Blom-Singer Classic Indwelling voice prosthesis has been a premier voice restoration product for laryngectomees worldwide. Like the ADVANTAGE Indwelling voice prosthesis, the Classic indwelling is intended for laryngectomees who are unable or reluctant to perform the routine removal and insertion necessary for the cleaning and maintenance of traditional, patient-maintained voice prostheses. The Classic Indwelling voice prosthesis is clinician placed; it is inserted and replaced on an as needed basis by a speech pathologist or physician only. It is available in a variety of sizes and styles.
Classic Indwelling Voice Prostheses

  • Now available STERILE in two diameters: 16 Fr. and 20 Fr.
  • Secondary Placement Kit and Patient Care Kit included with each package.
  • New packaging consolidation of the 20 Fr. Indwelling voice prosthesis.
    (The former Starter Kit, Replacement Kit, and Sterile Kit have been consolidated into one Sterile Kit.)

Introducing the FIRST ever 16 Fr. Indwelling Voice Prosthesis!

According to Eric D. Blom, Ph.D.,* he considers the use of a 16 Fr. Indwelling voice prosthesis in the following circumstances:
  • As the initial voice prosthesis following tracheoesophageal puncture.
  • Patients who have questionably healthy tracheoesophageal wall tissue, i.e., post-radiation or chemo-radiation therapy, poorly controlled diabetes, or others in who dilating the puncture to 20 Fr. or larger seems unwarranted.
  • Patients with a smaller diameter tracheostoma that will not comfortably accommodate a 20 Fr. or larger diameter prosthesis.
  • Patients with a thin tracheoesophageal wall, i.e., 6mm or less.
Eric D. Blom, Ph.D. of Head & Neck Surgery Associates, Indianapolis, has many years of clinical experience in Surgical Voice Restoration. According to Dr. Blom, a 16 Fr. Indwelling Voice Prosthesis should only be used in a 16 FR. diameter Tracheoesphageal Puncture.
