Functional pharyngoesophagoscopy is a new technique that allows examination of the functions of larynx, pharynx, and esophagus at the office or at the bedside without medication and anesthesia. Patients suffering from hoarseness, cough, globus sensation, chronic sinusitis, and dysphagia may undergo this technique. Functional pharyngoesophagoscopy not only evaluates the swallowing act and gives information about the function, it also shows mucosal changes and allows localization of them. During… Expand
The Instrumental Gold Standard: Fees
TLDR
The endoscopic examination of swallowing brings light inside dark cavities, allowing a detailed view of the surface anatomy of the effectors and their functioning during the passage of material other than air, which usually contains (bolus, ascending and descending secretions, gastric content, drugs, foreign bodies). Expand
The endoscopic evaluation of the oesophageal phase of swallowing (E-FEES): perspective in a audiological-phoniatric setting
TLDR
E-FEES is a safe, reliable and cost-effective technique, worthy of being implemented in a phoniatric setting, and the main steps and characteristic of the procedure are proposed. Expand
Cost analysis of office-based transnasal esophagoscopy
TLDR
Cost analysis showed that office-based transnasal esophagoscopy can provide significant cost savings for the current standard of care and resulted in good patient acceptability and few complications. Expand
Functional endoscopy in neurogenic dysphagia: a feasibility study focusing on the esophageal phase of swallowing
TLDR
By interdisciplinary cooperation with additional assessment of the esophageal phase of deglutition using the innovative method of functional endoscopy, the diagnosis of neurogenic disorders including dysphagia may be significantly improved, leading to a better clinical understanding of complex dysfunctional patterns. Expand
Position paper of the German Society of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, Head and Neck Surgery and the German Society of Phoniatrics and Pediatric Audiology – Current state of clinical and endoscopic diagnostics, evaluation, and therapy of swallowing disorders in children
TLDR
The diagnostic procedures of specific endoscopy as described in this position paper are part of the primary and fundamental tasks of ENT specialists and phoniatrists. Expand
Laryngeal suspension and upper esophageal sphincter myotomy as a surgical option for treatment of severe aspiration
TLDR
Ten patients with severe aspiration and insufficient laryngeal elevation and constrictor pharyngeAL muscle activity during deglutition were surgically treated with a larynGEal suspension procedure and upper esophageal sphincter myotomy, enabling them to have an oral intake sufficient to fulfill their nutritional needs. Expand
Long-Term Results of Laryngeal Suspension and Upper Esophageal Sphincter Myotomy as Treatment for Life-Threatening Aspiration
TLDR
In most of the patients, life-threatening aspiration was successfully treated by UES myotomy and laryngeal suspension with restoration of oral intake. Expand
In-Office Evaluation and Management of Dysphagia.
TLDR
Approaching the patient with dysphagia starts with a comprehensive symptomatic analysis and thorough physical examination and the recent rapid revolution in office-based procedures has a great impact in the evaluation and management. Expand
Special techniques for resolving aspiration problems
TLDR
The diagnostics of aspiration and its treatment is presently based on interdisciplinary collaboration, and some well-known techniques and some new approaches will be described. Expand
Neue Wege der Funktionsendoskopie mit Retroflexion
TLDR
Adding retroflexed functional endoscopy from the oral cavity up to the duodenum to anterograde diagnostics allows the precise demonstration of how different factors interact in a complex way, e.g., in case of dysphagia or pathological reflux. Expand

Cineradiography of the pharyngeal stage of deglutition in 150 individuals without dysphagia.
TLDR
With the aid of cineradiography the pharyngeal stage of deglutition was examined among 150 individuals without dysphagia and the act of swallowing had a symmetrical and synchronous pattern. Expand
Effects of surface anesthesia on deglutition in man
TLDR
The importance of sensitivity in the mouth, pharynx and esophagus upon swallowing was studied on 17 healthy volunteers and changes caused by the mucous membrane's anesthesia inhibiting the discharge of impulses from oropharyngeal receptors were shown. Expand

Abnormal opening of the upper oesophageal sphincter, i.e. abnormal relaxation of the cricopharyngeal muscle, is common in dysphagic patients. It is often present together with other motorExpand
Radiologic assessment of abnormal oral and pharyngeal phases of swallowing.
TLDR
The most frequent symptoms of abnormal oral or pharyngeal swallowing include difficulty initiating swallowing, cervical dysphagia, nasal regurgitation, coughing, and choking. Expand
Topical Anesthesia and Swallowing
TLDR
Modern cancer chemotherapy, as well as local surgical procedures, antimicrobial therapy, and local irradiation, is increasing the incidence of stomatitis, "sore throat," and dysphagia. Expand
Radiological evaluation of dysphagia.
TLDR
The radiological method, compared with endoscopy, is most useful as the initial screening examination in patients with dysphagia, but its major limitations are poor detection of mild cases of esophagitis and occasional lack of specificity in diagnosing esophageal motor dysfunction. Expand
Upper esophageal sphincter function during deglutition.
TLDR
The dynamics of UES function during deglutition are dependent upon the volume of the swallowed bolus, and larger bolus volumes are accommodated by both an increased diameter of sphincter opening and by prolongation of the interval of spHincter relaxation. Expand
Radiological assessment of dysphagia with endoscopic correlation.
TLDR
For these reasons, as well as lower cost, increased convenience, and patient comfort, radiologic assessment is recommended as the primary method of evaluating patients with dysphagia. Expand

The Upper Esophageal Sphincter Area
TLDR
Autopsy specimens revealed the level of the upper esophageal sphincter to be localized within the cricopharyngeal muscle and there was no indication of any spHincter inferior to the crico-pharyngeus in the cervical esophagus. Expand
