Abstract

Aging cleft palate and total laryngectomy patients suffer degradation of their deglutition function. We experienced an elderly patient with laryngeal cancer and untreated cleft palate. The operation, which consisted of a total laryngectomy and cleft palate plasty via the push back method, was simultaneously performed. The patient did not have dysphagia because of complete velopharyngeal closure after the operation. Also, he was able to rapidly resume eating a general diet. In the course of their treatment, we also need to consider the dietary QOL of cancer patients with head and neck lesions.
