Consequently, the purpose of this study was to survey laryngectomees in order to determine whether those who were preoperatively counseled derived any benifit. another purpose was to poll those preoperatively counseled regarding the benefits they considered they had received; also to obtain information on the opinion of laryngectomees regarding preoperative visits by esophageal speakers.
