OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the results of fiberoptic endoscopic examination of swallowing safety in children with cerebral encephalopathy in order to identify patients with oropharyngeal dysphagia. METHODS: 68 children from the Association for the Care of Disabled Children (Associação de Assistência à Criança Deficiente -AACD), São Paulo, were submitted to fiberoptic endoscopic examination of swallowing safety from March 1999 to March 2000. RESULTS: We observed premature spillage (53%), penetration…

Aspiration Pneumonia in Children with Cerebral Palsy after Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Study

None of the children presented aspiration pneumonia or infectious complications during the course of videofluoroscopy or after the procedure, even with tracheal aspiration present in 32 cases.

Deglutição em crianças com alterações neurológicas: avaliação clínica e videofluoroscópica

A retrospective analysis of protocols of speech-language evaluation and of medical records of children referred to clinical and videofluoroscopic evaluations of swallowing found both procedures are important and complementary in the diagnosis of dysphagia.

Instrumental Swallowing Assessments in the Neonatal and Pediatric Populations: A Systematic Review

This study systematically review the literature to identify and to report protocols used in instrumental assessments through videofluoroscopic swallow study (VFSS) and fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) in the neonatal and pediatric populations to support clinical decision making.

Preventive and surgical intervention in patient with cerebral palsy - case report

The multidisciplinary assistance targeted to the oral health of the patient with cerebral palsy can be considered as an important strategy for promoting the health and quality of life in this population group.

Dental Caries and Oral Hygiene in Children with Spastic Tetraparetic Cerebral Palsy Receiving Either Oral Feeding or Nutrition via Gastrostomy Tube

Children with STCP who have severely compromised oral-motor function and receive oral feeding present a higher risk of having dental caries than do children with nutrition via gastrostomy tube of having periodontal disease.

|Abordagem odontológica em uma paciente com doença Tay-Sachs: relato de caso

Dental follow-up is essential to prevent and control infectious foci of oral origin, which favor the risk of respiratory complications, being one of the causes that can lead these patients to death.

Impact of an educational program on the feeding of neurologically impaired children.

The educational program had a positive impact on the knowledge and conduct of caregivers concerning the feeding of their children with chronic non-progressive encephalopathy.

The educational program had a positive impact on the knowledge and conduct of caregivers concerning the feeding of their children with chronic non-progressive encephalopathy.



Disorders of pharyngeal and upper esophageal sphincter motor function.

The pathogenesis, consequences, evaluation, and treatment of the motor disorders of buccopharyngeal swallowing are summarized and some selected clinical conditions that are associated with buccophileal dysphagia are described.

Endoscopic and Videofluoroscopic Evaluations of Swallowing and Aspiration

It was concluded that the FEES is a valid and valuable tool for evaluating oropharyngeal dysphagia and some specific patients and conditions that lend themselves to this procedure are discussed.

Dysphagia: its treatment in the profoundly retarded patient with cerebral palsy.

The profoundly retarded cerebral palsied patient is capable of making gains in swallowing function based upon a passive treatment paradigm and the swallowing mechanism was felt to operate more quickly, more efficiently, and with fewer swallows at the end of the 18-month study.

Durational aspects of oral swallow in neurologically normal children and children with cerebral palsy: An ultrasound investigation

Children with CP required more time than neurologically normal children for collection, preparation, oral transit, and total oral swallow time for 5-ml liquid boluses and solid bolus tasks in children with CP.

Oral-motor skills following sensorimotor therapy in two groups of moderately dysphagic children with cerebral palsy: Aspiration vs nonaspiration

Improvement in oral-motor skills may help moderately eating impaired children with cerebral palsy to ingest food more competently (i.e., less spillage), however, their weight remains at the lowest level of age norms.

Classification of eating impairments based on eating efficiency in children with cerebral palsy

A classification system based on measures of growth: weight, height, and skinfold thickness and eating skills: eating efficiency and oral-motor skills is proposed for CP and eating impairments in children with cerebral palsy.

In this age of modern era, the use of internet must be maximized to get the on-line children with cerebral palsy book, as the world window, as many people suggest.

Evaluation of the cause of unexplained neurogenic dysphagia should include consultation by a neurologist, magnetic resonance imaging of the brain, blood tests, electromyography/nerve conduction studies, and, in certain cases, muscle biopsy or cerebrospinal fluid examination.

Swallowing/ventilation interactions during oral swallow in normal children and children with cerebral palsy

This investigation statistically confirms empirically based recommendations that children with CP be allowed more time to complete feeding tasks and consume small volume drinks rather than large volume drinks.
