The main objective of this study is to evaluate, in a prospective cohort, the link between preoperative contractile reserve of oesophagus evaluated by high resolution manometry (HRM) and the occurrence of post operative dysphagia after anti-reflux surgery.
Investigator initiated prospective study to determine whether the use of a negative pressure suction in the hypopharynx will reduce the amount of aspiration during Video Fluoroscopic Swallowing Exam (VFSE) among patients with oropharyngeal dysphagia
This is a randomized, sham-controlled, patient masked, outcome assessor-blinded study to assess a Pharyngeal Electrical Stimulation (PES) Catheter for treatment of oropharyngeal dysphagia following a stroke.
The purpose of this study is to determine if the Yale Swallow Protocol is an effective screen for aspiration in recently extubated patients.
The purpose of this study is to characterize oral-pharyngeal swallow function with the guidance of videofluoroscopy under two conditions, with and without cervical bracing, in patients determined to have dysphagia.
Purpose: Rationale: Acupuncture is a therapy for physical activity disorders secondary to nervous diseases, and it may have therapeutic effects on dysphagia caused by radiation therapy. Purpose: This randomized trial aims to investigate whether acupuncture may alleviate radiation-induced dysphagia in patients with head and neck cancer. The effect was compared with outcomes in patients without receiving acupuncture.
Investigator initiated prospective study to determine whether use of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) can improve the swallow function in patients who underwent total laryngectomy and are experiencing difficulty swallowing
This study aims to assess the therapeutic role of rTMS on parkinson's patients with dysphagia. Thirty PD patients with dysphagia using UK bank criteria for PD will recruited from outpatient clinic in Assuit University. All patients were admitted at Neuropsychiatric Department, Assiut University Hospital/ Assiut, Egypt. Each patient fulfilled the inclusion criteria as spontaneous swallows should be identified clearly when patients cannot perform voluntary swallows using clinical examination test. The patients will be allocated randomly into two groups one of which will receive real sessions of high frequency rTMS (25 HZ), with intensity of 80% of resting motor threshold detected from the hand motor area, with total 2000 pulses for each hemisphere for 10 consecutive sessions totally over period of 10 days with repeated booster session every month during the period of follow up among three months. The other will receive sham sessions. All subjects will be followed up by selected clinical rating scales at different intervals pre session, post 10 sessions, and after one, two and three months.
The purpose of this study is to determine if the incidence and duration of postoperative dysphagia are improved in the participants receiving a local injection of methylprednisolone with systemic dexamethasone when compared to those receiving the usual systemic dexamethasone.
A non-randomised, prospective study to assess the effects of beta-blockers on substance P levels and the swallowing function. The study is going to be carry out in the Gastrointestinal Physiology Laboratory of the Hospital de Mataró (Spain). All participants will be actively recruited from a Linked hospital and primary care database. We include two groups: the first group (group 1) are participants taking beta-blockers and the second group (group 2) are participants not-taking beta-blockers.
