Figure A.8: A schematic drawing of the VoiceMaster voice prosthesis with its insertion tool. When the red color is visible the prosthesis is not locked onto the inserter. When the yellow color is visible the prosthesis is locked onto the inserter but not elongated. The green color indicates a locked prosthesis onto the inserter while the esophageal flange is being stretched.

The VoiceMaster voice prosthesis is placed onto the inserter while the color indication is red. The safety strap is attached to the notch of the inserter (figure A.8). The plunger of the inserting tool is pushed inward until the yellow color is visible. At this point the prosthesis is locked onto the inserter. The prosthesis is then lubricated with the lubricant gel. Further advancement of the plunger will stretch the star shaped esophageal flange into a spindle shape.
