The Montgomery® Oesophageal Tube is used to bridge the gap between the pharyngostome and oesophagostome following laryngooesophagectomy and first stage reconstruction of the cervical oesophagus. The tube features a funnel-shaped superior end to conform to the hypopharynx, and two firm oval bands designed to ensure proper positioning and to prevent leakage of saliva after laryngooesophagectomy.
The Montgomery® Oesophageal Tube has three functions: 1. it tends to eliminate the problem of profuse salivary leakage by way of the pharyngostome, 2. it maintains a widely patent pharyngostome and oesophagostome, and 3. it creates a trough between the pharyngostome and oesophagostome facilitating the second stage procedure.
Treatment of oesophageal fistulae.
