Montgomery Oesophageal Tubes

The Montgomery® Oesphageal Tube is used for two-stage reconstruction of the cervical esophagus.

The tube features a funnel-shaped proximal end to conform to the hypopharynx and two firm oval bands designed to ensure proper positioning and to prevent leakage of saliva after laryngoesophagectomy.

The Montgomery® Oesphageal Tube has three functions:

  • it tends to eliminate the problem of profuse salivary leakage by way of the pharyngostome,
  • it maintains a widely patent pharyngostome and esophagostome, and
  • it creates a trough between the pharyngostome and esophagostome, facilitating the second-stage procedure.
