Assessing penetration and aspiration: how do videofluoroscopy
and fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing compare?
Laterality of Swallowing in Healthy Subjects by AP Projection Using Videofluoroscopy
A simple bedside stroke dysphagia screen, validated against videofluoroscopy
, detects dysphagia and aspiration with high sensitivity.
Investigations (4) include questionnaires (swallow disorder history, Eating Disorder Inventory-2, and Symptom Checklist--90-R); weight assessment; testing with standardized food samples to elicit eating behaviors; self-reports; electromyography; and videofluoroscopy
An actual subluxation event in the lumbar spine was serendipitously captured with videofluoroscopy
by Cholewicki and McGill.
or fibreoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing to detect dysphagia in patients with neurological disorders: Systematic review.
In the UK, the speech and language therapist will recommend videofluoroscopy
and/ or Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES), the approach is often dictated by local availability.
Sometimes, a laboratory study known as videofluoroscopy
, or modified barium swallow, is performed.
was used to examine swallowing function.
26) Videonasendoscopy and videofluoroscopy
have also been described as effective diagnostic modalities.
Utility of ambulatory pH monitoring and videofluoroscopy
for the evaluation of patients with globus pharyngeus.
While all participants agreed that multidisciplinary teamwork is essential in the management of paediatric dysphagia because of the diversity of possible underlying causes, consequences and management implications, the challenges in providing MDT included: (i) time constraints making it difficult for all professionals to consult the patient at the same time as a team; (ii) a high staff turnover; (iii) poor understanding of roles of all team members; and (iv) lack of objective swallowing measures such as videofluoroscopy
making assessment and intervention challenging.
