The Effect of Parkinson Disease Tremor Phenotype on Cepstral Peak Prominence and Transglottal Airflow in Vowels and Speech.

J Voice 2019 Jul 19;33(4):580.e11-580.e19. Epub 2018 Feb 19.

Davies School of Communication Sciences & Disorders, Texas Christian University, Fort Worth, Texas. Electronic address:

Objectives: The physiological manifestations of Parkinson disease are heterogeneous, as evidenced by disease subtypes. Dysphonia has been well documented as an early and progressively significant impairment associated with the disease. The purpose of this study was to investigate how acoustic and aerodynamic measures of vocal function were affected by Parkinson tremor subtype (phenotype) in an effort to better understand the heterogeneity of voice impairment severity in Parkinson disease.

Surgical management of airway dysfunction in Parkinson's disease compared with Parkinson-plus syndromes.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2013 May;122(5):294-8

New York Center for Voice and Swallowing Disorders, St Luke's Roosevelt Medical Center, New York, NY 10019, USA.

Objectives: We sought to compare the laryngeal symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD) with those of multiple system atrophy (MSA), a Parkinson-plus syndrome; to review the differences in surgical management of upper airway dysfunction between patients with PD and those with MSA; and to present a treatment algorithm for management of upper airway disorders in patients with PD and MSA.

Methods: We analyzed the airway manifestations of each disease, including clinical and physiological test results and management outcomes, in a case series of 30 patients (24 with PD and 6 with MSA).

Results: Vocal fold atrophy causing bowing with a midfold glottic gap was common in patients with PD. Read More

Analysis of oropharyngeal dysphagia through fibroendoscopy evaluation of swallowing in patients with Parkinson's disease.

Cir Cir 2012 Jan-Feb;80(1):31-7

Servicio Foniatría, Instituto Nacional de Rehabilitación, Mexico, DF, Mexico.

Background: Parkinson's disease (PD) has a high incidence in Mexico and is estimated at approximately 500,000 patients. One of the main clinical manifestations of PD is dysphagia, which is the difficult passage of food from the mouth to the stomach. The aim of this study was to assess oropharyngeal dysphagia through fibroendoscopy evaluation of swallowing in patients with PD. Read More

Silent saliva aspiration in Parkinson's disease.

Mov Disord 2011 Jan 16;26(1):138-41. Epub 2010 Nov 16.

Division of Neurology and Epidemiology, Federal University of Bahia, Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.

Background: Silent laryngeal penetration and silent aspiration (SLP/SA) are common manifestations in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients and are frequently associated with dysphagia. However, little is known about saliva aspiration in this population.

Objective: We investigated the frequency and characteristics of saliva SLP/SA in PD patients with daily drooling (Group A) and in individuals without PD or daily drooling (Group B). Read More

Aerodynamic measurements of patients with Parkinson's disease.

J Voice 1999 Dec;13(4):583-91

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Northwestern University Medical School, Chicago, IL, USA.

Patients with Parkinson's disease commonly complain of voice dysfunction. Most of these complaints can be attributed to the known muscular control disorders that occur with Parkinson's disease. However, the manifestations of Parkinson's disease muscular dysfunction on parameters of phonation such as airflow, laryngeal resistance, and subglottal pressure necessary to sustain phonation have not been reported.

[Laryngeal manifestations in patients with Parkinson disease].

Laryngorhinootologie 1999 Oct;78(10):544-51

Klinik für Phoniatrie und Pädaudiologie, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main.

Background: Impairments of articulation, respiration, and phonation are a common symptom of Parkinson's disease and may result in reduced communication. Previous observations have shown a high incidence of laryngeal abnormalities. However, no relevant data were available for gender differences of laryngeal abnormalities in Parkinson's disease.
