Biodegradable (BD) stents have been used for the management of various esophageal strictures (ES) but the experience of its use in caustic strictures is limited. The present study, aimed at evaluating efficacy of BD stents for the treatment of refractory caustic-induced ES, was a retrospective multi-center study conducted at three tertiary care centers in India wherein adult patients with refractory caustic induced strictures underwent placement of a BD stent. Patients were followed up for immediate complications and long term outcome...

Evidence supporting prophylactic swallow exercises for patients with head and neck cancer (HNC) has not been universally demonstrated. This RCT examined diet level, feeding tube use, swallow function, and quality of life (QOL) of patients undergoing chemoradiotherapy who performed prophylactic swallowing exercises. Sixty HNC patients were randomized into exercise versus control groups. Swallowing, oromotor, toxicity, and QOL data were recorded (baseline, 3, 6, 12, 24 months). Physiological swallow function was examined at baseline and 3 months...

We aimed to investigate anxiety level of caregivers of neurological patients with dysphagia, and the relationship of patient-related factors to anxiety level of dysphagia caregivers. A total of 103 adult neurological patients with dysphagia (study group), 30 without dysphagia (control group), and their primary caregivers were included. Types of feeding, condition of dependency in eating and drinking, dysphagia duration, and history of previous dysphagia treatment were recorded for study group. In study group, the Turkish version of the Eating Assessment Tool-10 (T-EAT-10) was used to determine dysphagia symptom severity...

Esophagectomy for esophageal cancer is invasive thoracic surgery with a high incidence rate of postoperative complications and prolongation of hospitalization, even if the standardized clinical pathway improves the outcome (mortality and morbidity). Postoperative recurrent nerve paralysis (RNP) is related to respiratory complications concomitant with prolonged hospitalization. However, it has not been elucidated which factors affect the incidence and recovery of RNP. To detect the predictive factor for postoperative RNP, we focused on preoperative serum albumin...

Poor patient adherence to swallowing exercises is commonly reported in the dysphagia literature on patients treated for head and neck cancer. Establishing the effectiveness of exercise interventions for this population may be undermined by patient non-adherence. The purpose of this study was to explore the barriers and facilitators to exercise adherence from a patient perspective, and to determine the best strategies to reduce the barriers and enhance the facilitators. In-depth interviews were conducted on thirteen patients...

The need for developing effective telehealth tools for dysphagia management is high not only for people who live in rural areas, but also for individuals with mobility/access limitations. We aimed to develop an electronic case History Tool/form (thereafter, e-HiT) for dysphagia, and compare its effectiveness with its paper-based version (PBV) on completion time, completeness, independence, and patient perceptions/satisfaction. Secondarily, we examined associations between the aforementioned variables and predictor variables, such as age, cognition, and computer/internet use...

Maximum tongue pressure (MTP) measurement is a convenient, less invasive assessment that has been developed to quantify tongue strength; however, it is unclear whether MTP is useful for the detection of swallowing disorders in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients. The purpose of this study was to clarify the relationship between MTP and the characteristics of swallowing disorders on videofluorography and to determine the usefulness of tongue pressure measurement for the assessment of swallowing function in ALS patients...

To quantify and compare maximal extent (height) of acid reflux events (AREs) on symptom generation in dysphagic neonates. Dysphagic neonates (N = 53), born at 30 ± 5.3 weeks gestation, underwent 24-hour pH-impedance study for the evaluation of troublesome symptoms purported to be due to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). AREs (pH < 4 for >4 s) detected by impedance (Z) were categorized by maximal extent as refluxate reaching distal (Z6, Z5), middle (Z4, Z3), or proximal (Z2, Z1) impedance channels...

The present study sought to elucidate the functional contributions of sub-regions of the swallowing neural network in swallowing preparation and swallowing motor execution. Seven healthy volunteers participated in a delayed-response, go, no-go functional magnetic resonance imaging study involving four semi-randomly ordered activation tasks: (i) "prepare to swallow," (ii) "voluntary saliva swallow," (iii) "do not prepare to swallow," and (iv) "do not swallow." Results indicated that brain activation was significantly greater during swallowing preparation, than during swallowing execution, within the rostral and intermediate anterior cingulate cortex bilaterally, premotor cortex (left > right hemisphere), pericentral cortex (left > right hemisphere), and within several subcortical nuclei including the bilateral thalamus, caudate, and putamen...

Although neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is increasingly used in dysphagia therapy, patient responses to NMES are inconsistent and conflicting results have been reported. This, together with a lack of information about the effects of NEMS on the swallowing process, has led to an ongoing debate about its impact on swallowing function. In order to address this, we set out to (i) collect baseline information on the physiological effects of NMES on the complex pharyngeal phase of swallowing and (ii) to compare two different stimulation protocols...

Vallecular cysts are formed when the duct of a mucous gland or lingual tonsillar crypt is dilated owing to obstruction from inflammation, irritation, or trauma. Small cysts are usually asymptomatic; however, cyst growth results in dysphagia, odynophagia, and acute airway complications. As complete transoral laser excision of a vallecular cyst often results in cyst resolution and improved symptoms, proper diagnosis and management of vallecular lesions are important. We describe the evaluation and treatment of a 53-year-old man with a history of intracerebral hemorrhage in the left basal ganglia who presented with dysphagia caused by a vallecular cyst...

Older patients with stroke have poor functional prognosis compared to younger patients. Patients with stroke who have severe white matter (WM) lesions have been reported to have poor functional prognosis such as cognitive dysfunction, increased propensity for falling, and gait and balance problems. The aim of this study was to determine whether WM lesions exert negative effects on swallowing function in older patients with mild stroke. We conducted a retrospective analysis of 63 patients aged >65 years who had a National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale score ≤5 and who underwent videofluoroscopic swallowing examination after their first stroke...

Narrow band imaging (NBI) is widely used in gastrointestinal, laryngeal, and urological endoscopy. Its original purpose was to visualize vessels and epithelial irregularities. Based on our observation that adding NBI to common white light (WL) improves the contrast of the test bolus in fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES), we now investigated the potential value of NBI in swallowing disorders. 148 FEES images were analyzed from 74 consecutive patients with swallowing disorders, including 74 with and 74 without NBI...

Dysphagia affects the most cardinal of human functions: the ability to eat and drink. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate swallowing dysfunction in patients diagnosed with Zenker's diverticulum using the Swallowing Quality of Life (SWAL-QOL) questionnaire preoperatively. In addition, SWAL-QOL was used to assess changes in the outcome of swallowing function after endoscopic treatment of Zenker's diverticulum compared to baseline. Pre- and postoperative SWAL-QOL data were analyzed in 25 patients who underwent endoscopic treatment of Zenker's diverticulum between January 2011 and December 2013...

The objectives were to translate and culturally adapt the M.D. Anderson Dysphagia Inventory (MDADI) into Danish and subsequently test the reliability of the Danish version. The MDADI was translated into Danish and cross culturally adapted through cognitive interviews. The final version was test-retest evaluated in a group of head and neck cancer (HNC) patients who responded to the questionnaire twice with a mean of eight days apart. Interclass correlation coefficient, Cronbach's alpha, floor and ceiling effects, standard error of measurement and minimal detectable change were investigated...

Thickened infant formula (TIF) prepared with commercial xanthan gum (XG)-based food thickeners are commonly used to care for infants with swallowing difficulties or regurgitation. In this study, the rheological properties of TIF prepared with four commercial food thickeners (coded A-D) were determined as a function of thickener concentration, thickener type, and setting time because the selection of an appropriate food thickener for TIF preparation is necessary for managing dysphagia in infants. The flow and dynamic rheological properties of TIF were investigated at three different concentrations (1...

The aim of this study was to examine the effect of food thickener on the pharmacodynamics of mitiglinide (MGN), a drug belonging to a class of rapid-acting insulin secretagogues. First, MGN tablets were coated by immersion in a xanthan gum-based food-thickening agent. This treatment was shown to delay disintegration rates of MGN tablets in vitro. The pharmacodynamics of MGN after ingestion of a single oral dose of an MGN tablet, with or without food thickener immersion, were then examined in an open-label crossover study comprising 5 healthy participants...

Dysphagia is common sequela of brain injury with as many as 50% of patients suffering from dysphagia following stroke. Currently, the majority of guidelines for clinical practice in the management of dysphagia focus on the prevention of complications while any natural recovery takes place. Recently, however, non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) techniques like transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) have started to attract attention and are applied to investigate both the physiology of swallowing and influences on dysphagia...
