Optimising Radiation Therapy Dose to the Swallowing Organs at Risk: An In Silico Study of feasibility for Patients with Oropharyngeal Tumours.

Dysphagia 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Radiation Oncology, Nelune Comprehensive Cancer Centre, POWH, Sydney, NSW, 2031, Australia.

Recent evidence suggests that reducing radiotherapy dose delivered to specific anatomical swallowing structures [Swallowing Organs at Risk (SWOARs)] may improve swallowing outcomes post-treatment for patients with head and neck cancer. However, for those patients with tumours of the oropharynx, which typically directly overlap the SWOARs, reducing dose to these structures may be unachievable without compromising on the treatment of the disease. To assess the feasibility of dose reduction in this cohort, standard IMRT plans (ST-IMRT) and plans with reduced dose to the SWOARs (SW-IMRT) were generated for 25 oropharyngeal cancer patients (Brouwer et al.

A Comparative Analysis of Eating Behavior of School-Aged Children with Eosinophilic Esophagitis and Their Caregivers' Quality of Life: Perspectives of Caregivers.

Dysphagia 2019 Feb 2. Epub 2019 Feb 2.

Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Doctors Office Tower, Suite 10226, 2200, Children's Way, Nashville, TN, 37232, USA.

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) can affect eating behavior in infants and children and this may lead to stressful interactions with their caregivers and potentially impact their caregivers' quality of life. Clinical evaluation of eating behaviors can be time consuming and burdensome. Caregivers can provide a comprehensive assessment of their child's eating behavior; however, this has not been well studied in children with EoE. Read More

Validation and Reliability of the French Version of the Sydney Swallow Questionnaire.

Dysphagia 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Institut de Recherche Expérimentale et Clinique (IREC), Pôle de Pneumologie, ORL & Dermatologie, Université Catholique de Louvain, Brussels, Belgium.

Oropharyngeal dysphagia is frequently under-reported and early detection may lead to adapt strategies of rehabilitation and management decisions. The Sydney Swallow Questionnaire (SSQ), a self-reported questionnaire for the detection and quantification of oropharyngeal dysphagia, was previously adapted and validated in other languages but not in French. The purposes of this study were to develop and validate a French version of SSQ (SSQ-f) and to assess its psychometric properties. Read More

A Device that Models Human Swallowing.

Dysphagia 2019 Jan 23. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

Diagnostic Centre of Imaging and Functional Medicine, Skåne University Hospital, Lund University, Malmö, Sweden.

The pharynx is critical for correct swallowing, facilitating the transport of both air and food transport in a highly coordinated manner, and aberrant co-ordination causes swallowing disorders (dysphagia). In this work, an in vitro model of swallowing was designed to investigate the role of rheology in swallowing and for use as a pre-clinical tool for simulation of different routes to dysphagia. The model is based on the geometry of the human pharynx. Read More

The Association of 3-D Volume and 2-D Area of Post-swallow Pharyngeal Residue on CT Imaging.

Dysphagia 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, 21287, USA.

Pharyngeal residue, the material that remains in the pharynx after swallowing, is an important marker of impairments in swallowing and prandial aspiration risk. The goals of this study were to determine whether the 2D area of post-swallow residue accurately represents its 3D volume, and if the laterality of residue would affect this association. Thirteen patients with dysphagia due to brainstem stroke completed dynamic 320-detector row computed tomography while swallowing a trial of 10 ml honey-thick barium. Read More

Improving the Diagnostic Capability of the Modified Barium Swallow Study Through Standardization of an Esophageal Sweep Protocol.

Dysphagia 2019 Feb 11;34(1):34-42. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Center for Swallowing Disorders, University of South Florida, 13330 USF Laurel Drive, Tampa, FL, 33612, USA.

The modified  barium swallow (MBS) study is a videofluoroscopic evaluation of oropharyngeal swallow function. Esophageal imaging is not routinely performed during an MBS, and few guidelines for implementation or interpretation exist. Aims of the current investigation were to (1) delineate the percentage of normal, oropharyngeal, esophageal, and mixed swallowing dysfunction, (2) develop operational definitions for rating our standardization cursory view of esophageal bolus flow, and (3) determine inter-rater reliability between speech pathology (SLP) and physician raters for categorizing esophageal abnormalities.

Disruption of the Obligatory Swallowing Sequence in Patients with Wallenberg Syndrome.

Dysphagia 2019 Jan 7. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, 2-1 Seiryo-machi, Aoba-ku, Sendai, 980-8575, Japan.

Although the sequence of events involved in swallowing varies among healthy adults, healthy adults demonstrate some consistent patterns, including opening of the upper esophageal sphincter (UES) prior to maximum laryngeal elevation (LE). Previous animal studies suggested that swallowing is regulated by a neuronal network in the medulla, and lateral medullary infarction, or Wallenberg syndrome, frequently causes dysphagia. This retrospective, observational, multicenter study aimed to determine if the sequence of swallowing events was disturbed in patients with Wallenberg syndrome compared with previously published reference data for healthy adults.

Economic Analysis of a Three-Arm RCT Exploring the Delivery of Intensive, Prophylactic Swallowing Therapy to Patients with Head and Neck Cancer During (Chemo)Radiotherapy.

Dysphagia 2018 Dec 4. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Radiation Oncology Department, Princess Alexandra Hospital, Metro South Hospital & Health Service, Brisbane, QLD, 4102, Australia.

Research advocates for the use of intensive, prophylactic swallowing therapy to help reduce the severity of dysphagia in patients receiving (chemo)radiotherapy ([C]RT) for head/neck cancer (HNC). Unfortunately, the intensity of this therapy, coupled with growing patient numbers and limited clinical resources, provides challenges to many international cancer facilities. Telepractice has been proposed as a potential method to provide patients with greater support in home-practice, whilst minimising burden to the health service. Read More

Laryngeal Vibration Increases Spontaneous Swallowing Rates in Chronic Oropharyngeal Dysphagia: A Proof-of-Principle Pilot Study.

Dysphagia 2018 Nov 28. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, James Madison University, 235 MLK Jr. Way, MSC 4304, Harrisonburg, VA, 22087, USA.

Previously, vibratory stimulation increased spontaneous swallowing rates in healthy volunteers indicating that sensory stimulation excited the neural control of swallowing. Here, we studied patients with severe chronic dysphagia following brain injury or radiation for head and neck cancer to determine if sensory stimulation could excite an impaired swallowing system. We examined (1) if laryngeal vibratory stimulation increased spontaneous swallowing rates over sham (no stimulation); (2) the optimal rate of vibration, device contact pressure, and vibratory mode for increasing swallowing rates; and (3) if vibration altered participants' urge to swallow, neck comfort, and swallow initiation latency.

Evaluating the Feasibility and Validity of Using Trained Allied Health Assistants to Assist in Mealtime Monitoring of Dysphagic Patients.

Dysphagia 2018 Sep 26. Epub 2018 Sep 26.

Speech Pathology and Audiology Department, Logan Hospital, Corner of Armstrong and Loganlea Roads, Meadowbrook, QLD, 4131, Australia.

Growing patient numbers, within a context of finite resources, has placed increased demands on dysphagia services in acute settings. Delegating some aspects of dysphagia management to other trained professional groups, such as allied health assistants (AHA), may help speech-language pathology (SLP) service efficiencies. The primary aim of this study was to explore the feasibility and initial validity of using trained AHAs to complete structured mealtime observations of patients. Read More

A Pilot Study on the Efficacy of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure on the Manifestations of Dysphagia in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

Dysphagia 2018 Sep 24. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

Departamento de Otorrinolaringologia e Cirurgia de Cabeça e Pescoço, Universidade Federal de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.

There is evidence in the literature demonstrating that patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may present with dysphagia, but few studies have evaluated whether this complaint can be reversed with treatment of OSA. To assess whether findings of dysphagia in patients with OSA can be reversed with the use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices. Seventy adult patients (age 18-70 years) with moderate or severe OSA were included in the study. Read More

Radiation Exposure to Staff and Patient During Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Studies and Recommended Protection Strategies.

Dysphagia 2018 Sep 22. Epub 2018 Sep 22.

Monash Imaging, Monash Health, Clayton, VIC, 3168, Australia.

Videofluoroscopic swallowing studies expose both the patients and the staff to ionising radiation. Although the radiation exposure is considered low compared to other diagnostic procedures, it is still prudent to keep the radiation dose as low as reasonably achievable. This review aims to summarise the latest literature pertaining to staff and patient radiation dose, as well as to make evidence-based recommendations on dose optimisation strategies. Read More

Correlates of Early Pharyngeal High-Resolution Manometry Adoption in Expert Speech-Language Pathologists.

Dysphagia 2018 Sep 19. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

Division of Otolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Wisconsin-Madison, 600 Highland Ave, K4/7 CSC, Madison, WI, 53792-7375, USA.

Pharyngeal high-resolution manometry (HRM) is at a point of entry into speech-language pathologist (SLP) clinical practice. However, the demographic characteristics of SLPs who are early adopters of HRM are unclear; perspectives of early adopters may shape how the technology is received by the field at large. We hypothesized that younger SLPs, those working in outpatient settings, those with a strong knowledge base in HRM, and those with experience in other types of instrumentation are more likely to have interest in adopting HRM.

Repetitive Saliva Swallowing Test: Norms, Clinical Relevance and the Impact of Saliva Secretion.

Dysphagia 2018 Aug 21. Epub 2018 Aug 21.

Department of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology, Division of Speech and Language Pathology, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.

Screening tests can be performed to identify stroke patients who require further assessment of swallowing function. The Repetitive Saliva Swallowing Test (RSST) is a screening test during which the patient is asked to swallow saliva as many times as possible for 30 s, while deglutition is counted through palpation of the larynx. This study aimed to establish normative values for three age groups of non-patients (total N = 120) on RSST. Read More
