An experimental model to investigate the biomechanical determinants of pharyngeal mucosa coating during swallowing.

Abstract

The development of innovative experimental approaches is necessary to gain insights in the complex biomechanics of swallowing. In particular, unraveling the mechanisms of formation of the thin film of bolus coating the pharyngeal mucosa after the ingestion of liquid or semi-liquid food products is an important challenge, with implication in dysphagia… (More)
