Abstract

This article describes a technique for fabrication of a custom tracheostomy obturator for a patient with hereditary angioneurotic edema and a permanent tracheostoma. The impression technique and fabrication of a custom tracheostoma valve retainer for a laryngectomy patient closely mirrors the technique used for fabricating a tracheostomy obturator.
