Montgomery Esophageal Tube
Company : Boston Medical Products Inc
UMDC Code : 108739
The Montgomery Esophageal Tube is used to bridge the gap between the pharyngostome and esophagostome following laryngoesophagectomy and first stage reconstruction of the cervical esophagus. 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 laryngoesophagectomy.
The Montgomery Esophageal 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 esophagostome, and, 3) it creates a trough between the pharyngostome and esophagostome facilitating the second stage procedure.
