Dysphagia after pharyngolaryngeal cancer surgery. Part I: Pathophysiology of postsurgical deglutition

  title={Dysphagia after pharyngolaryngeal cancer surgery. Part I: Pathophysiology of postsurgical deglutition},
  author={Eberhard K. Walther},
Eighty-one patients were examined after laryngopharyngeal cancer surgery with a sequential computer manometry system using 4-channel-pressure probes. The general swallowing coordination is neither a matter of the oropharyngeal pressure thrust nor of the pharyngeal transit time, but mainly depends on swallowing initiation. The points of interest are both the pharyngeal inlet and outlet. The topographic correlates are the base of the tongue and the upper esophageal sphincter (UES). Resections of… CONTINUE READING
