Figure 2: Blom-Singer Low Pressure voice prosthesis with the gelatin capsule over the forwardly folded esophageal flange. The Blom-Singer voice prosthesis attached to the inserter is slightly lubricated with the lubricant gel. The prosthesis is inserted into the TEF.

Place the prosthesis onto the inserter and attach its trap to the safety peg (figure 2).Directly after applying a little bit of the lubricant gel, the prosthesis is inserted into the TEF (figure .2). Push the prosthesis so that the tracheal flange pushed against the tracheal posterior to assure complete insertion (figure 3).
