PURPOSE: Newly diagnosed swallowing dysfunction is rare, with an incidence <1% in hospitalized patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence and clinical characteristics of dysphagia in elderly trauma patients specifically. METHODS: Patients ≥75years who had newly diagnosed swallowing dysfunction were identified by retrospective review of our institutional trauma database from 2009-2012. A comparison group without dysphagia was also identified that was matched by age, gender, injury mechanism, and injury severity score (ISS)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Sham procedures in endoscopy are used with the intention of controlling for placebo response, potentially allowing more precise evaluation of treatment effect. Nevertheless, this type of study may impose significant risk without potential benefit for those in the sham group. The aim of the current study was to systematically review and analyze the endoscopic literature to assess the safety of sham controls. METHODS: MEDLINE and Embase databases were searched for endoscopic sham procedures for all dates to July 2017...

We present areas of uncertainty concerning intensive care unit-acquired weakness (ICUAW) and identify areas for future research. Age, pre-ICU functional and cognitive state, concurrent illness, frailty, and health trajectories impact outcomes and should be assessed to stratify patients. In the ICU, early assessment of limb and diaphragm muscle strength and function using nonvolitional tests may be useful, but comparison with established methods of global and specific muscle strength and physical function and determination of their reliability and normal values would be important to advance these techniques...

Rationale Ongoing dysphagia in stroke patients weaned from mechanical ventilation often requires long-term tracheotomy to protect the airway from aspiration. In a recently reported single-centre pilot study, a significantly larger proportion (75%) of tracheotomized dysphagic stroke patients regained sufficient control of airway management allowing tracheotomy tube removal (decannulation) 24-72 h after pharyngeal electrical stimulation (PES) compared to controls who received standard therapy over the same time period (20%)...

BACKGROUND: Swallowing difficulties are common, and dysphagia occurs frequently in intensive care unit (ICU) patients after extubation. Yet, no guidelines on postextubation swallowing assessment exist. We aimed to investigate the safety and effectiveness of nurse-performed screening (NPS) for postextubation dysphagia in the medical ICU. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of mechanically ventilated patients who were extubated in a 20-bed medical ICU...

BACKGROUND: Both cervical esophagogastric anastomosis (CEA) and intrathoracic esophagogastric anastomosis (IEA) are used to restore gastrointestinal integrity following minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE). No prospective randomized data on functional outcome, postoperative morbidity, and mortality between these techniques are currently available. METHODS: A comparison was conducted including all consecutive patients with esophageal carcinoma of the distal esophagus or gastroesophageal junction undergoing MIE with CEA or MIE with IEA from October 2009 to July 2014 in 3 high-volume esophageal cancer centers...

56 patients affected by T2 glottic carcinoma were treated in two institutes using transoral laser microsurgery (TLM) in 40 cases and vertical hemilaryngectomy in 16 cases between September 2012 and September 2015. In the TLM group, different subtypes of type V cordectomy were used according to the extent of tumor. In the vertical hemilaryngectomy group, classical operation was used in most of the cases and the resection was extended in few cases. Analysis of post-operative swallowing function was done using videofluoroscopy (VFS), functional endoscopic evaluation of swallowing, and subjectively using MD Anderson dysphagia inventory...

BACKGROUND: Esophagectomy remains the most reliable technique for managing esophageal cancer, but anastomotic complications including postoperative leak, ischemia and stricture negatively affect outcomes of this specific surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of a novel method of esophagogastric anastomosis for reducing postoperative dysphagia and stricture formation. METHODS: Eighty patients who were scheduled for esophagectomy due to esophageal cancer were randomly assigned into two groups: intervention and control (40 each)...

INTRODUCTION: In geriatric patients the management of odontoid type II fractures is complicated by osteoporosis and atlantoaxial arthritis (spondylarthritis C1/C2) with an increased lever arm. Furthermore, a few of the odontoid fractures are accompanied by an atlas fracture resulting in the "atlantoaxial unhappy triad". Posterior C1/C2 spondylodesis with bilateral Magerl screws and C1 hooks is a strong biomechanical construct, however, the posterior approach is associated with several drawbacks such as increased risk of infection and increased blood loss...
