OBJECTIVE To define factors that acutely influenced swallowing function prior to and during concurrent chemotherapy and radiotherapy. DESIGN A summary score from 1 to 7 (the swallowing performance status scale [SPS]) of oral and pharyngeal impairment, aspiration, and diet, was assigned to each patient study by a single senior speech and swallow pathologist, with higher scores indicating worse swallowing. Generalized linear regression models were formulated to asses the effects of patient… CONTINUE READING
