    Sammanfattning : BackgroundParkinson’s disease (PD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases in Europe. Besides motor dysfunction, PD is characterized by several non-motor and secondary motor features, such as weight change, sialorrhea, constipation and swallowing problems. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Swallowing and deep brain stimulation swallowing function in Parkinson's disease after subthalamic nucleus and caudal zona incerta deep brain stimulation

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Stina Sundstedt; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Background Swallowing problems are common in Parkinson’s disease, and these affect morbidity and mortality largely due to aspiration-induced pneumonia. Even mild dysphagia affects patient Quality of Life. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Impairment of intra-oral sensation, discrimination ability, and swallowing function following radiotherapy and surgery for oral and pharyngeal cancer

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Ingrid Bodin; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Oral cancer; pharyngeal cancer; radiotherapy; surgery; intra-oral sensation; sensibility; swallowing; intra-oral discrimination; deglutition disorders; dysphagia; function; dysfunction; radiography; cineradiography; follow-up; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; diagnostisk radiologi; Diagnostic Radiology;

    Sammanfattning : Oral and pharyngeal cancer is commonly treated with a combination of radiotherapy and surgery. It is a clinical knowledge that patients often experience severe swallowing disorders following treatment. Since surgical sequelae are instantaneous and obvious, little attention has been paid to other concurrent effects of the treatment. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Therapeutic aspects of oral and pharyngeal swallowing dysfunction. Videoradiographic and videomanometric analyses of adult healthy volunteers and dysphagic patients

    Detta är en avhandling från M Bülow, Dept of Diagn Radiology, Malmö University Hospital, SE-205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Författare :Margareta Bülow; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; medical instrumentation; tomography; radiology; Clinical physics; Therapy; Videoradiography; Videomanometry; Dysphagia; Dysfunction; Swallowing; Klinisk fysiologi; radiologi; tomografi; medicinsk instrumentering;

    Sammanfattning : In this study simultaneous videoradiography and intraluminal manometry (videomanometry) have been used in combination in three studies to analyze how different therapeutic strategies affect the physiology of swallowing in healthy volunteers and in patients with pharyngeal dysfunction. Analyses of healthy volunteers showed few significant measurable effects on the pharyngeal swallow. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Swallowing dysfunction among older people in short-term care prevalence, effect of intervention, and risk of mortality

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Patricia Hägglund; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2019]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; swallowing disorder; dysphagia; elderly care; intermediate care; undernutrition; oral health; treatment; rehabilitation; quality of life; mortality risk; survival;

    Sammanfattning : Objectives: Swallowing dysfunction (dysphagia) is a common, but often neglected condition among geriatric patients that can cause severe complications such as malnutrition, aspiration pneumonia and death. The aims of this thesis were to (i) describe the study design and method of the multidisciplinary and multicenter project SOFIA (Swallowing function, Oral health, and Food Intake in old Age), (ii) study the prevalence of and the relationship between swallowing dysfunction and risk of undernutrition among older individuals in short-term care, (iii) study the effect of oral neuromuscular training on swallowing dysfunction among older individuals, and (iv) to investigate the association between poor oral health, swallowing dysfunction and mortality.
