Motor Imagery Exercise and Tongue Strength

Although motor imagery (MI) has not yet been researched in the field of swallowing rehabilitation, the potential benefit is far reaching. Difficulty swallowing, or dysphagia, can occur in people who have a history of stroke, head injury, neurological disease (such as Parkinson's disease, ALS, etc.), and head/neck cancer. A person ...

Phase N/A

The WATS3D (Wide Area Transepithelial Sample Biopsy With 3-Dimensional Computer-Assisted Analysis) U.S. Registry

The purpose of this study is to create a registry (collect data and keep it in a research database) to learn more about two methods of taking small tissue samples from your esophagus (the esophagus is the tube that carries food and liquid from your mouth to your stomach.). The ...

Phase N/A

Frailty in Thoracic Surgery

The purpose of this study is to develop an all-encompassing frailty model using laboratory and functional studies. A frailty model will help us determine prior to surgery who will require rehabilitation and skilled nursing needs beyond discharge. This model will also help us determine who will likely be readmitted and ...

Phase N/A

Functional Outcome After Treatment for Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Patients are enrolled prospectively at the department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery & Audiology at Copenhagen University Hospital, Rigshospitalet. All eligible patients with histologically verified squamous cell carcinoma of the oropharynx, regardless of treatment option (as long as the intent is curative) can be included. Outcome measures are assessed ...

Phase N/A

Development of Novel Biophysically Designed Fluids for Swallowing Disorders

Background Dysphagia, a devastating swallowing disorder affecting more than 18M adults and millions more children in the U.S. [1,2], is associated with increased mortality and morbidity, including malnutrition, dehydration, pulmonary complications, and reduced quality of life [3,4]. Dysphagia often causes thin liquids (e.g., water, coffee) to be aspirated or misdirected ...

Phase N/A

Description and Modeling of Swallowing Disorders After a Stroke

The oropharyngeal junction participates in 3 interpenetrating functions: Swallowing, Breathing and Speech. In the context of ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, these are altered, isolated or associated manner, causing major disorders and representing a source of handicap for patients. Understanding the swallowing mechanisms is therefore a major challenge to guide the ...

Phase N/A

CPAP to Improve Swallow Function Post Total Laryngectomy

Total laryngectomy is a procedure that involves surgical removal of the larynx and separation of the digestive and airway tracts. The procedure is typically conducted for cases of laryngeal cancer and intractable aspiration. Following this procedure, patients are no longer at risk for aspiration; however some patients continue to experience ...

Phase N/A

Indications and Outcomes of Endoscopic Ultrasound in Tanta

Detection of main causes for referral to EUS in Tanta, Egypt.

Phase N/A

Endoscopic Resection Multicenter Registry

Endoscopic resection can be an appropriate approach in early neoplasms, challenging adenomas or sub-epithelial lesions. Endoscopic resection can be considered as a less invasive approach than surgery. Moreover, endoscopic resection can be available to patients who are ineligible for surgery or who have refused more aggressive surgical intervention. The study ...

Phase N/A

Intermittent Oro-Esophageal Tube Feeding Using Individually-Customized 3-Dimensional Printing

According to standard Guideine of videofluoroscopic swallow study(VFSS), Patients referred to dysphagia(swallowing dysfunction)who were required to tube feeding and medically stable of vital sign, and agreed to participate. Participants with swallowing dysfunction who were classified into three groups (nasogastric tube, traditional intermittent (IOE) tube, individual 3D printed guiding tube) according ...
