Swallowing disorders are frequent. The main concern is mortality due to aspiration-induced pneumonia and malnutrition. In addition, quality of life is severely affected. The demographic trend indicates an increase of dysphagia in the future. Neurodegenerative diseases, tumors of the digestive tract, and sequelae of tumor treatment in the head and neck region are the main pathologic entities. Predominantly ENT physicians and phoniatricians are asked for diagnostics and therapy, and will… Expand

TLDR
In this study, high agreement is found between the results of videoendoscopic and videofluoroscopic examination regarding the registration of the most critical symptom, i.e. aspiration of neurogenic dysphagia, and the two methods should be considered complementary. Expand
