Assessing laryngeal function and hypersensitivity.

Pulm Pharmacol Ther 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Department of Respiratory Medicine, Royal Brompton Hospital, London, SW3 6HP, UK. Electronic address:

The larynx is one of the most highly innervated organs in humans, adapted to simultaneously deliver several key respiratory functions including airway protection, swallowing and phonation. In some individuals the larynx can adopt a state that could be considered 'dysfunctional' or maladaptive; resulting in or contributing to a range of clinical disorders such as chronic refractory cough, inducible laryngeal obstruction (previously termed paradoxical vocal fold movement or vocal cord dysfunction), muscle tension dysphonia and globus pharyngeus. These disorders appear to display significant overlap in clinical symptomology and in many cases have features of concomitant or allied sensory dysfunction; often described as laryngeal hypersensitivity.

Management of Dysphagia in Patients with Parkinson's Disease and Related Disorders.

Intern Med 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Department of Neurology, Kochi Medical School, Kochi University, Japan.

Various methods of rehabilitation for dysphagia have been suggested through the experience of treating stroke patients. Although most of these patients recover their swallowing function in a short period, dysphagia in Parkinson's disease (PD) and Parkinson-related disorder (PRD) degenerates with disease progression. Muscle rigidity and bradykinesia are recognized as causes of swallowing dysfunction, and it is difficult to easily apply the strategies for stroke to the rehabilitation of dysphagia in PD patients.

The Shaking Palsy of the Larynx-Potential Biomarker for Multiple System Atrophy: A Pilot Study and Literature Review.

Front Neurol 2019 26;10:241. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Hospital for Movement Disorders/Parkinson's Disease, Beelitz-Heilstätten, Germany.

In its early stages multiple system atrophy (MSA), a neurodegenerative movement disorder, can be difficult to differentiate from idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD), and emphasis has been put on identifying premotor symptoms to allow for its early identification. The occurrence of vegetative symptoms in addition to motor impairment, such as orthostatic hypotension and neurogenic bladder dysfunction, enable the clinical diagnosis in the advanced stages of the disease. Usually with further disease progression, laryngeal abnormalities become clinically evident and can manifest in laryngeal stridor due to impaired vocal fold motion, such as vocal fold abduction restriction, mostly referred to as vocal fold paresis, or paradoxical vocal fold adduction during inspiration.

The Impact of Communication Impairments on the Social Relationships of Older Adults: Pathways to Psychological Well-Being.

J Speech Lang Hear Res 2019 Jan;62(1):1-21

Department of Psychology, Portland State University, OR.

Purpose Social contact is known to be vital for older adults' mental and physical health but, because communication impairments often co-occur with other types of disability, it is difficult to generalize about the relative impact of a communication impairment on the social relationships of older adults. Specific aims of the study were to examine whether the severity of a communication impairment was associated with a range of social measures and to examine the association between these characteristics and psychological well-being. Method Community-dwelling older adults ranging in age from 65 to 94 were recruited for the study of Communication, Health, Aging, Relationship Types and Support. Read More

The Prediction of Risk of Penetration-Aspiration Via Hyoid Bone Displacement Features.

Dysphagia 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Swanson School of Engineering, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, 15261, USA.

Videofluoroscopic swallow studies are widely used in clinical and research settings to assess swallow function and to determine physiological impairments, diet recommendations, and treatment goals for people with dysphagia. Videofluoroscopy can be used to analyze biomechanical events of swallowing, including hyoid bone displacement, to differentiate between normal and disordered swallow functions. Previous research has found significant associations between hyoid bone displacement and penetration/aspiration during swallowing, but the predictive value of hyoid bone displacement during swallowing has not been explored.

Cerebellar repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation restores pharyngeal brain activity and swallowing behaviour after disruption by a cortical virtual lesion.

J Physiol 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Gastrointestinal (GI) Sciences, Division of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Gastroenterology, School of Medical Sciences, University of Manchester, Salford Royal Hospital (part of the Manchester Academic Health Sciences Center (MAHSC)), Salford, UK.

Key Points: Despite evidence that the human cerebellum has an important role in swallowing neurophysiology, the effects of cerebellar stimulation on swallowing in the disrupted brain have not been explored. In this study, for the first time, the application of cerebellar neurostimulation is characterized in a human model of disrupted swallowing (using a cortical virtual lesion). It is demonstrated that cerebellar stimulation can reverse the suppressed activity in the cortical swallowing system and restore swallowing function in a challenging behavioural task, suggesting the findings may have important therapeutic implications.

Low-income homebound older adults receiving home-delivered meals: Physical and mental health conditions, incidence of falls and hospitalisations.

Health Soc Care Community 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

University of Texas at Austin Steve Hicks School of Social Work, Austin, Texas.

Significant differences in health across racial/ethnic and socioeconomic groups in the US signal increasing numbers of low-income homebound older adults in a rapidly ageing society. The purpose of this study was to examine physical and psychiatric conditions and their association with incidence of self-reported falls and hospitalisations among largely low-income and racial/ethnic minority adults age 50+ (N = 2,224), clients from a home-delivered meals programme in Central Texas. Data came from comprehensive, in-home assessments done in 2017 by these older adults' case managers. Read More

Design and Validation of the Oropharyngeal Dysphagia Screening Test for Patients and Professionals: A Preliminary Study.

Dysphagia 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

The Mind, Brain and Behavior Research Center (CIMCYC-UGR), Faculty of Psychology, University of Granada, Campus Cartuja S/N, 18071, Granada, Spain.

Dysphagia is a very common symptom in people of advanced age and with neurological diseases, although it often remains undiagnosed. At present, there are few assessment tools adapted for the Spanish-speaking population; of the few existing, most of them follow a self-reporting format, which requires a well-preserved cognitive state in the patient in order to be tested. Therefore, the main aim of this study was to design and validate an instrument for screening dysphagia without food, which could have a quick application and did not compromise the patient's safety.

Front Behav Neurosci 2019 1;13:35. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Department of Radiology, Guangzhou First People's Hospital, Guangzhou Medical University, Guangzhou, China.

Theta burst stimulation (TBS) is a powerful variant of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), making it potentially useful for the treatment of swallowing disorders. However, how dose TBS modulate human swallowing cortical excitability remains unclear. Here, we aim to measure the after-effects of spontaneous brain activity at resting-state using the regional homogeneity (ReHo) approach in healthy subjects who underwent different TBS protocols over the suprahyoid muscle cortex.
