  • Cricopharyngeal function or dysfunction: what's the deal? [Journal Article]
  • Curr Opin Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2016 Aug 31CO
  • Allen J
  • CONCLUSIONS: UES and cricopharyngeus function is complex and dynamic. It is affected by internal signals such as posture and constitution of refluxate, aging, and interventions particularly radiation and surgery. Clear understanding of the triggers and responses of the UES will enable clinicians to choose the correct therapy for their dysphagic patients.
  • Laryngeal Elevation Velocity and Aspiration in Acute Ischemic Stroke Patients. [Journal Article]
  • PLoS One 2016; 11(9):e0162257Plos
  • Zhang J, Zhou Y, … Groher M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Reduced laryngeal elevation velocity for laryngeal elevated to position where laryngeal vestibule is fully closed was an independent predictor of aspiration in patients with acute ischemic stroke. This may be related to a decreased contraction velocity of the muscles involved in hyolaryngeal elevation. Therapeutic methods aimed at improving laryngeal elevation velocity may decrease aspiration events and pneumonias after stroke.
