Dysphagia and malnutrition seem to be associated, but little research in detail has been reported. We aimed to clarify the association between dysphagia and malnutrition by adopting accurate diagnosis and mathematical evaluation of dysphagia using videofluorography and nutritional assessment calculated by a well-established nutritional risk index. We conducted a retrospective analysis of 165 enrolled patients who were admitted to our hospital for acute diseases and underwent videofluorography on suspicion of dysphagia in the year 2016...

INTRODUCTION: Some stroke patients show oral phase dysphagia, characterized by a markedly prolonged oral transit time that hinders oral feeding. The aim of this study was to clarify the clinical characteristics and lesions responsible for delayed swallowing. METHODS: We reviewed 90 patients with stroke. The oral processing time plus the postfaucial aggregation time required to swallow semisolid food was assessed. The patients were divided into two groups according to oral transit time, and we analyzed the differences in characteristics such as demographic factors, lesion factors, and cognitive function...

The purpose of the article is to evaluate the effects of mechanical complications, such as clogging or coiling, of gastrojejunostomy tubes on radiation exposure during exchange in the pediatric population. In this HIPAA-compliant and IRB-approved study, we retrospectively reviewed procedural records for patients undergoing gastrojejunostomy (GJ) tube exchange during a 4-month period in 2014. Success of the procedure, specifications of the tube, age, and sex of the patient as well as radiation exposure during the procedure were included...

Patient adherence to treatment recommendations is an important issue for healthcare providers, in a multitude of specialties, and is critical when assessing the efficacy and effectiveness of a particular treatment approach. Patients who have swallowing impairment often require complex and specific interventions requiring altered daily patterns of behavior. Patients with dysphagia who do not follow recommendations or prescribed exercises may not receive maximum benefit of an intervention. Poor adherence also makes it more difficult to evaluate efficacy of a treatment both clinically and in experimental settings...

Dysphagia following treatment for head and neck cancer is one of the most significant morbidities impacting quality of life. Despite the value of prophylactic exercises to mitigate the impact of radiation on long-term swallowing function, adherence to treatment is limited. The purpose of this investigation was to explore the feasibility of a mobile health application to support patient adherence to swallowing therapy during radiation-based treatment. 36 patients undergoing radiation therapy were provided with the Vibrent™ mobile application as an adjunct to standard swallowing therapy...

Interventional radiology procedures often involve lengthy exposure to fluoroscopy-derived radiation. We therefore devised a videofluoroscopic swallowing study (VFSS) procedure using a human phantom that proved to protect the patient and physician by reducing the radiation dose. We evaluated a new lead-shielding device and separately attached additional filters (1.0-, 2.0-, and 3.0-mm Al filters and a 0.5-mm Cu filter) during VFSS to reduce the patient's entrance skin dose (ESD). A monitor attached to the human phantom's neck measured the ESD...

The incidence of feeding/swallowing impairments (deglutition disorders) in young children is rising and poses serious acute and long-term health consequences. Accurate detection and prompt intervention can lessen the impact of dysphagia-induced sequelae. Videofluoroscopic Swallow Studies (VFSSs) are used to make critical decisions for medically fragile children despite procedural variability and the lack of agreed upon measures for interpreting and reporting results. This investigation represents the first steps in the development of a novel tool for the quantification of oropharyngeal swallow physiology from full-length VFSS examinations in bottle-fed children...

Dysphagia is a common and severe toxicity after oncological treatment of head and neck cancer (HNC). The study aim was to investigate relationships between patient-reported dysphagia and clinically measured swallowing function in HNC after modern curative radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy to identify possible alarm symptoms for clinically manifest dysphagia. Patients with tumors of the tonsil, base of tongue, hypopharynx, and larynx treated in 2007-2015 were assessed for dysphagia post-treatment by telephone interview and videofluoroscopy (VFS)...

Xerostomia, or perceived mouth dryness, increases with advancing age, but its influence on swallowing effort is unknown. This study: (1) quantified relationships among age, perceived sense of swallowing effort, and ratings of perceived mouth dryness, and (2) examined changes in swallowing effort following application of a gel-based saliva substitute in healthy participants. This was a cross-sectional observational study and data were collected from attendees of a community healthy aging fair. Forty-two healthy participants (mean age = 65 years; 20 female) were enrolled...

The negative impact of increased bolus modification on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in persons with oropharyngeal dysphagia (OD) has been described in previous literature; however, findings may have been influenced by the severity of OD and underlying etiology. The current systematic review therefore aims to investigate the relationships between HRQoL and OD and to report on changes in HRQoL and OD following intervention. This review was conducted in accordance with the PRISMA statement. A systematic search of the literature was performed using PubMed and Embase...

The laryngeal adductor reflex (LAR) is an airway protective reflex that manifests as a brief vocal fold closure in response to laryngeal stimulation. This study examined if the absence of the LAR in response to touch delivered by a laryngoscope is associated with penetration/aspiration or pneumonia in patients with dysphagia. Inpatients at a teaching hospital with clinical symptoms of dysphagia were recruited upon referral to the otolaryngology clinic for a swallowing evaluation. Otolaryngologists observed the status of secretions and touched each arytenoid with the tip of the laryngoscope...

In Japan, the viscosity of thickened liquids is different among hospitals and nursing homes. In order to standardize viscosity of thickened liquids, the dysphagia diet committee of the Japanese Society of Dysphagia Rehabilitation developed the Japanese Dysphagia Diet 2013 (JDD2013). To decide on a definition of thickened liquids, the committee reviewed categories from other countries. Especially, the criteria of the USA and Australia were used as references. The definition had three levels: mildly thick, moderately thick, and extremely thick...

The goal of this work was to better understand perceptual judgments of pharyngeal residue on flexible endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) and the influence of a visual analog scale (VAS) versus an ordinal scale on clinician ratings. The intent was to determine if perceptual judgments of residue were more accurately described by equal or unequal intervals. Thirty-three speech language pathologists rated pharyngeal residue from 75 FEES videos representing a wide range of residue severities for thin liquid, applesauce, and cracker boluses...

This study aimed to validate the Japanese version of a dysphagia-specific quality of life questionnaire, the MD Anderson Dysphagia Inventory (MDADI-J), and to verify trends between MDADI-J and Functional Oral Intake Scale (FOIS) scores. The original 20 MDADI items were translated using a forward-backward method following accepted cultural adaptation guidelines. Seventy-two patients with a history of head and neck cancer treatment completed the MDADI-J between October 2015 and August 2016. Concurrent validity was determined by correlations with the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire-Core 30 (EORTC QLQ-C30) and the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire-Head and Neck 35 (EORTC QLQ-H&N35) instruments...

Clinician-reported toxicity grading through common terminology criteria for adverse events (CTCAE) stages dysphagia based on symptoms, diet, and tube dependence. The new dynamic imaging grade of swallowing toxicity (DIGEST) tool offers a similarly scaled five-point ordinal summary grade of pharyngeal swallowing as determined through results of a modified barium swallow (MBS) study. This study aims to inform clinicians on the similarities and differences between dysphagia severity according to clinical CTCAE and MBS-derived DIGEST grading...

The purpose of this study was to translate and adapt the 44-item SWAL-QoL into Greek and examine its internal consistency, test-retest reliability, external construct validity, and discriminant validity in order to provide a validated dysphagia-specific QoL instrument in the Greek language. The instrument was translated into Greek using the back translation to ensure linguistic validity and was culturally adapted resulting in the SWAL-QoL-GR. Two groups of participants were included: a patient group of 86 adults (48 males; age range: 18-87 years) diagnosed with oropharyngeal dysphagia, and an age-matched healthy control group (39 adults; 19 males; age range: 18-84 years)...

Accumulated pharyngo-laryngeal secretions have been associated with aspiration and pneumonia. While traditional secretion scales evaluate location and amount, the eight-point New Zealand Secretion Scale (NZSS) uniquely encompasses a responsiveness subcomponent. This prospective observational study investigated the predictive value of NZSS for aspiration and pneumonia. Consecutive inpatients (N:180) referred for flexible endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) were recruited (neurological 49%, critical care 31%, structural 15%, other 5% etiologies)...
