  • Pharyngeal Swallowing in Older Adults: Kinematic Analysis Using Three-Dimensional Dynamic Computed Tomography. [Journal Article]
  • JOJ Oral Rehabil 2018 Aug 20
  • Pongpipatpaiboon K, Inamoto Y, … Fernández MG
  • CONCLUSIONS: During swallowing, older adults had a longer pharyngeal phase characterized by prolonged velopharyngeal and laryngeal closure. This difference may be a protective mechanism to compensate for age-related weakness. A better understanding of the mechanism by which this adaptation occurs is needed to tailor rehabilitation strategies and to maintain swallowing function during the lifespan.
