Removal of a tracheostomy tube in critically ill neurologic patients is a difficult issue, particularly due to the high incidence of oropharyngeal dysphagia. For an objective evaluation of decannulation readiness the “Standardized Endoscopic Swallowing Evaluation for Tracheostomy Decannulation in Critically Ill Neurologic Patients” (SESETD) – a stepwise evaluation of ‘secretion management’, ‘spontaneous swallows’ and ‘laryngeal sensibility/cough’ – has been introduced. With the recent study deta...

OBJECTIVE Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the ventral intermediate nucleus (VIM) is a mainstay treatment for severe and drug-refractory essential tremor (ET). Although stimulation-induced dysarthria has been extensively described, possible impairment of swallowing has not been systematically investigated yet. METHODS Twelve patients with ET and bilateral VIM-DBS with self-reported dysphagia after VIM-DBS were included. Swallowing function was assessed clinically and using by flexible endoscopic ...

Abstract Introduction The pathophysiology of dysphagia in Parkinson's disease (PD) is heterogeneous and poorly understood at present. This study investigated the phenotypes, prevalence and pathophysiology of oropharyngeal freezing (OPF) in PD and its relation to dysphagia. Methods In a prospective study, 50 PD patients were systematically screened for OPF using flexible endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES). In addition, FEES-videos of 50 patients with post-stroke dysphagia and 50 healthy s...

Background. Pharyngeal dysphagia is a common symptom of Parkinson’s disease (PD) leading to severe complications. PD-related pharyngeal dysphagia (PDrPD) may significantly improve in up to half of patients following acute oral levodopa challenge. Objective. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) on PDrPD. Methods. Forty-five PD patients under LCIG treatment were available for retrospective analysis. In all patients with PDrPD who underwen...

Introduction: Although patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) often suffer from oropharyngeal dysphagia, knowledge about the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms is limited. Substance P (SP) is a localization-independent neurotransmitter of the entire nervous system. Reduced levels of SP were found in saliva of patients with impaired cough reflex and in advanced stages of PD. The aim of the study was to investigate SP in PD patients in order to gain further insights into the underlying patho...

Objective Dysphagia is a frequent and outcome-relevant complication of various neurological disorders, whose treatment options are still limited. Lately, neuromodulatory treatment devices have come into focus to enhance adaptive plasticity in the cortical swallowing network. However, performing neurophysiological and functional imaging studies to investigate these novel neurostimulation techniques for the treatment of neurogenic dysphagia in severely affected patients is difficult. Therefore, ba...

Introduction Dysphagia is one of the most important and prognostically relevant complications of acute stroke. Pharyngeal Electrical Stimulation (PES) is a treatment device that enhances cortical reorganization for the restoration of swallowing function after cerebral injury. Furthermore, it was shown that PES leads to a temporary increase of Substance P (SP) level in saliva but not serum in healthy adults. The neuropeptide SP likely acts as a neurotransmitter in the pharyngeal mucosa and enhanc...
