RESULTS

Found (71) clinical trials

Study efficacy, safety and tolerability of twice daily administration of OBS (qAM, pc, and hs) in patients (adolescents and adults) with EoE and dysphagia over 16 weeks (6 visits to the clinic)

Phase N/A

Safety and Efficacy of the Swallow Expansion Device (SED) for Improvement of Swallowing in Patients

The purpose of this study is to evaluate if the SED can safely and effectively improve swallowing. Many people with severe swallowing disability (dysphagia) cannot open their upper esophageal sphincter, which is a circular band of muscle that acts like a valve, allowing food to enter the esophagus (food pipe) ...

Phase N/A

Feasibility Study of Biofeedback in Dysphagia Therapy Post Stroke

This study will investigate the feasibility of delivering swallowing therapy using surface electromyography as a means of biofeedback to patients with dysphagia in the acute stroke setting. It will investigate trends in efficacy by comparing biofeedback therapy to usual care. The results will inform future dosing and efficacy studies.

Phase N/A

Motor Learning in Dysphagia Rehabilitation

The overall goal is to exploit motor learning principles in a novel way to enhance dysphagia rehabilitation in patients with dysphagia due to stroke. Dysphagia is swallowing impairment that can lead to serious illness or death due to ingested material entering the trachea (aspiration). Specifically, this study will determine whether ...

Phase N/A

Oral Screens in Post Stroke Training

Project plan Population: Patients are recruited from the hospital Stockholms Sjukhem. When discharged, or 6-7 months after stroke, the patients are informed about the study. All positive answers are registered in a coded list. Patients are contacted by the investigators around eight months after the stroke. Patients are included in ...

Phase N/A

MRI to Assess the Effect of Non-selective Beta-blocker in Patients With Cirrhosis

Background Standardization and new therapeutic treatments of variceal bleeding has significantly reduced the mortality the last 25 years, but there is still a high 6-week mortality around 15-20% and 1-year mortality of about 40%. Cirrhotic patients without prophylactic treatment suffer a risk of 60% of re-bleeding within the first year ...

Phase N/A

Mechanisms and Management of Infant Dysphagia

Infants with chronic feeding difficulties exhibit inadequacy of suck-swallow and breathe coordination, regurgitation or vomiting, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and airway aspiration. Often these infants must rely on feeding tubes, either inserted through the nose or surgically placed, to meet their nutrition and hydration needs until they are able to orally ...

Phase N/A

Fostering Eating After Stroke With Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

Swallowing impairments are a common and a serious complication of stroke but lack effective therapies. We herein propose to conduct a prospective clinical study using a non-invasive brain stimulation technique, anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), in combination with swallowing exercises for improving dysphagia due to an acute-subacute hemispheric infarction, ...

Phase N/A

Anesthetic to Reduce Dysphagia After Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion Surgery

The patients will be randomly assigned into one of the two groups to receive either bupivacaine hydrochloride 0.5% solution if they are randomized to the treatment group or 0.9% NaCl solution if they are randomized to the control group. These solutions will be poured into the retropharyngeal space intraoperatively before ...

Phase N/A

Design and Implementation of a Nutritional Intervention in Patients With Oropharyngeal Dysphagia

Oropharyngeal Dysphagia causes complications that compromise the efficacy and security of deglutition. An inefficacy deglutition increases the risk of malnutrition and/or dehydration. On the other hand, unsafe deglutition requires more time to complete the oral preparation of the bolus, which can leave residues in the mouth that can then lead ...
