INTRODUCTION: Foreign body aspiration after laryngectomy in the adult population is reported up to 6.7%. In most instances, these foreign bodies can be successfully treated with bronchoscopic intervention only. We present a patient with a previous total laryngectomy whom aspirated his voice prosthesis 12 months prior with multiple unsuccessful bronchoscopic attempts at extraction necessitating surgical intervention.
