Montgomery® Laryngeal Keel
For the repair of anterior subglottic stenosis (web), with or without vocal cord paralysis
Use of the Keel can be made following repair of stenosis or following removal of the Montgomery® Laryngeal Stent to aid in formation of a sharp anterior commissure.
The Keel can also be beneficial to prevent stenosis following a hemilaryngectomy.
The extralaryngeal portion, when secured to thyroid laminae with a figure-of-eight suture, covers the thyrotomy repair with its umbrella.
Tightly secured, the keel prevents stenosis and the migration of granulation tissue into the larynx.
- Soft implant-grade silicone
