As the U.S. population ages, there is increasing need for data on the effects of aging in healthy elderly individuals over age 80. This investigation compared the swallowing ability of 8 healthy younger men between the ages of 21 and 29 and 8 healthy older men between the ages of 80 and 94 during two swallows each of 1 ml and 10 ml liquid. Videofluoroscopic studies of these swallows were analyzed to confirm the absence of swallowing disorders. Biomechanical analysis of each swallow was… Expand
Oropharyngeal swallow in younger and older women: videofluoroscopic analysis.
TLDR
Interestingly, the range of motion of the older women was often greater than that of the young women, and this increase may indicate a compensation for aging effects not seen in older men. Expand
Aspects of swallowing in healthy dentate elderly persons older than 80 years.
TLDR
Physiological swallowing functions deteriorate even in healthy dentate elderly persons, and this deterioration may be explained primarily by the influence of aging on swallowing. Expand
Influence of age on swallows of a highly viscous liquid bolus.
TLDR
On average, a highly viscous liquid bolus crosses the pharynx faster in older subjects (56-77 years old) than in younger subjects (19-55 years old), which suggested an adaptation to the aging process to maintain a safe swallow. Expand
Evaluation of swallowing movement using ultrasonography
TLDR
The hyoid bone–laryngeal motion ratio is an index that evaluates swallowing movement and is independent of physique and physiological changes associated with aging. Expand
The Effect of Bolus Consistency and Age on Measurements of Hyolaryngeal Muscular Activity During Swallowing
TLDR
Results indicated that older males exhibited greater durations during swallows as bolus consistency increased as compared to younger males, and Amplitude and Duration measurements obtained from sEMG signals increased. Expand
Mechanism of sequential swallowing during straw drinking in healthy young and older adults.
TLDR
Results indicate that subtle age-related differences are evident in healthy young and older adults with sequential straw drinking and suggest that specific inherent swallowing patterns may increase the risk of laryngeal penetration with normal aging. Expand
Maximum Hyoid Displacement I n Normal Swallowing By :
Vertical and anterior displacement of the hyoid bone is a critical biomechanical component of normal swallowing function. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the maximal vertical and anteriorExpand
Relationship between jaw opening force and hyoid bone dynamics in healthy elderly subjects
TLDR
It is suggested that low jaw opening force leads to low resting hyoid position only in elderly men, and a lower hyoids position in healthy elderly men results in a larger total amount of hyoid displacement during swallowing. Expand
Age-related declines in the swallowing muscle strength of men and women aged 20-89 years: A cross-sectional study on tongue pressure and jaw-opening force in 980 subjects.
TLDR
Differences between age-related declines in TP and JOF are investigated in a cross-sectional study of 980 healthy and independent participants, and suggest that maintenance of JOF might contribute to safe swallowing in healthy elderly individuals. Expand
Maximum Hyoid Displacement in Normal Swallowing
TLDR
There was a significant difference between younger and older subjects for anterior displacement of the hyoid bone during the swallow but not for vertical displacement, suggesting that older people may adapt to preserve airway protection. Expand

Oropharyngeal swallowing in normal adults of different ages.
TLDR
Several parameters, including total duration of oropharyngeal swallowing, were significantly longer in the oldest age group than in any other age group, and females had a longer duration of upper esophageal sphincter (UES) opening. Expand
Age and volume effects on liquid swallowing function in normal women.
TLDR
The results of this study may be used to specify the relationship of swallowing function to age and liquid bolus volume in women, relationships that heretofore have been observed in part and in smaller and more heterogeneous populations. Expand
Age effects on lingual pressure generation as a risk factor for dysphagia.
TLDR
Overall pressure reserve declines with age, and older people may be working harder to produce adequate swallowing pressures, and age-related illness may put geriatric patients at higher risk for dysphagia, thus further complicating recovery. Expand
Biomechanical analysis of the pharyngeal swallow in postsurgical patients with anterior tongue and floor of mouth resection and distal flap reconstruction.
TLDR
Biomechanical measures indicated that there was recovery in some aspects of the pharyngeal swallow in this patient group of oral cancer patients, and the duration of tongue base to pharynGEal wall contact increased significantly to within normal levels by the 3-month postoperative evaluation. Expand
Tongue motion in elderly adults: initial in situ observations.
TLDR
Ultrasound imaging appears to be a useful method for evaluating certain oral-motor functions during aging, especially when comparing tongue motion at rest and during speech production and resting tongue thickness in normal older and younger adults. Expand
Altered swallowing function in elderly patients without dysphagia: radiologic findings in 56 cases.
TLDR
What has been described as swallowing dysfunction in young persons may not be abnormal in very elderly persons. Expand
Exercise to improve physiologic and functional performance in old age.
TLDR
It is suggested that exercise training in elders is a potential means of reducing the burden of impairments and ultimately improving function. Expand
Speech-Motor Equivalence in Aging Subjects
TLDR
The elderly groups' variability across the three muscles paralleled that of the 4-yr.-olds, suggesting that speech-motor equivalence returns to an earlier level of operation in aging speakers. Expand

TLDR
Investigators have identified some small temporal changes in the swallow of older adults as compared with young adults, but further research is needed to define completely the primary effects of aging on deglutition. Expand
Influence of aging on oral-pharyngeal bolus transit and clearance during swallowing: scintigraphic study.
TLDR
It is concluded that normal impairs the efficiency of pharyngeal clearance during swallowing, prolongs scintigraphic measures of oral-pharygeal transit, and increases the exposure time of the glottis to the swallowed bolus. Expand
