  4. 4. Radiological evaluation of esophageal function in dysphagia with special emphasis on achalasia

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Mats Andersson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Achalasia; Dysphagia; Radiography; Barium esophagogram; Reproducibility of findings; Observer variation; Laparoscopic myotomy; Balloon dilatation; Esophageal neoplasms;

    Sammanfattning : In idiopathic achalasia, degeneration of the inhibitory innervation of the esophageal smooth muscle results in absence of primary peristalsis and in incomplete relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). All treatments for achalasia aim at reducing the pressure gradient across the LES, thus facilitating esophageal emptying by gravity. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Radiation-induced dysphagia in head and neck cancer - risk structures and methodological aspects

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborgs universitet

    Författare :Johanna Hedström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; head and neck cancer; radiation therapy; dysphagia; patient-reported outcomes; quality of care;

    Sammanfattning : Background/Aims: Swallowing difficulties are common after radiation therapy (RT) in head and neck cancer (HNC). The overall aim of this thesis was to address radiation-induced late dysphagia with regard to investigating anatomical risk structures related to the development of radiation-induced dysphagia, as well as methodological aspects in the evaluation of swallowing.
