Nutrition in total laryngectomy

What is it about?

Total laryngectomy is a very invasive surgical intervention. Patients need to receive an artificial nutritional support for days after surgery. This paper suggests a good strategy.

Why is it important?

The incidence of postoperative complications after total laryngectomy also depends on a normal nutrition. This paper would help in increasing the rate of a good outcome.
