Abstract

A new procedure for aspiration which closes the larynx at the level of the false cords is reported. This method is not harmful to the vocal folds and maintains arytenoid movement, thus preserving phonatory function. With the advance of the operative technique for aspiration and swallowing rehabilitation, patients who have recovered from aspiration can be helped. Our procedure can be recommended for such cases.
