• Salivary by-pass Tube directs saliva which discharges from neck wound after surgery into the distal esophagus and to facilitate the management of fistula resulting from a variety of causes including advanced malignancy, surgery, radiation, trauma and caustic ingestion. Because of these host factors, placement of the tubes may be associated with pressure necrosis of local tissues.

  Design Benefits:

• Controls salivary leakage from the pharyngocutaneous fistula after total laryngectomy
• Used in poor wound healing due to systemic problem or regional factors
• The constant bathing by saliva to the tissues altered surgery, infection, or radialtion therapy is a prime factor in retarding the progress of healing and fistula closure
• Provides anti-aherent smooth surface
• Provides secure fit in the superior esophagus and hypopharynx
• Available in Clear or White material
