Abstract

We describe the use of a silicone septal button in the management of a patient who developed a large tracheo-oesophageal fistula following primary puncture as part of a total laryngectomy. The button was easily inserted, well tolerated and prevented leakage of solids into the trachea, allowing the patient to eat.
