Product Description

Introduced in 2003, the Advantage indwelling voice prosthesis is the first prosthesis ever to incorporate a valve imbedded with silver oxide as a material preservative. This feature may eliminate or reduce the need for anti-fungal agents such as Nystatin for some users, but not for others.

Nonsterile—Includes nonsterile voice prosthesis for secondary or replacement TEP procedures; with insertion/cleaning accessories. Clinician-placed.

The ADVANTAGE indwelling voice prosthesis is the newest advancement in Blom-Singer voice restoration. Silver oxide has been incorporated into the prosthesis as a material preservative. The ADVANTAGE is placed by the clinician in the tracheoesophageal puncture so that routine changing of a voice prosthesis is unnecessary. It is ideal for laryngectomees who are unable or resistant to changing a removable voice prosthesis, such as the Duckbill or Low Pressure styles. The ADVANTAGE is inserted and replaced on an as needed basis by a speech pathologist or physician only.
