Oro-pharyngeal dysphagia commonly occurs in patients with infantile onset Pompe disease (IOPD), which is a rare recessive neuromuscular disorder caused by deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme acid alpha-glucosidase. Without treatment, death occurs by 1 year of age from cardiorespiratory failure. Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) has been used to increase life expectancy, however emerging developmental and medical morbidities have become apparent. A case file review of the feeding outcomes of 12 patients with IOPD, managed at a single tertiary centre, was undertaken...

Expiratory muscle strength training (EMST) involves forcible blowing as a means of generating high expiratory pressure, against adjustable resistance. EMST has recently been introduced as a potential treatment for dysphagia. This study was performed to investigate the effects of EMST on the activity of suprahyoid muscles, aspiration and dietary stages in stroke patients with dysphagia. Twenty-seven stroke patients with dysphagia were randomly divided into two groups. The experimental group performed EMST with a 70% threshold value of maximal expiratory pressure, using an EMST device, 5 days a week for 4 weeks...

Dysphagia is one of the most critical problems in patients with progressive neuromuscular diseases. However, clinically useful and practical scales to evaluate dysphagia are limited. Therefore, the aim of this study was to develop such a scale. An 8-stage Neuromuscular Disease Swallowing Status Scale (NdSSS) was developed and tested for its inter- and intrarater reliabilities, concurrent validity, and responsiveness. The NdSSS was used to evaluate 134 patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and 84 patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)...
