• Over 140 tracheoesophageal punctures were performed at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Department of Otolaryngology and Communicative Disorders over the last seven years. In all cases the Blom-Singer duckbill prosthesis was utilized for alaryngeal voice restoration. Of these patients, two examples were noted where squamous cell papilloma was found at the tracheoesophageal stoma site. The preoperative evaluation and surgical laser technique for surgical excision of the papilloma with postoperative care are described. The case reports of each of the patients that have been diagnosed as having squamous cell papilloma of the tracheoesophageal puncture site are reviewed.
