Abstract
This paper presents an overview of neoglottic visualization using HSDI in a clinical environment. Three patients who underwent a tracheoesophageal puncture (TEP) for voice restoration following Total Laryngectomy were examined. Images of the entire neoglottis as well as point specific vibratory information (kymograms) were generated. Experiences and interpretations gleaned from this undertaking were compared to what was found in the literature. HSDI appears to be a very effective instrument in any comprehensive examination of neoglottic function. Appreciation of the vibratory characteristics of this sphincter may eventually allow neoglottic voice enhancement procedures to be developed.
