Summary of "Early Assessment and Management of Dysphagia after Lung Resection: A Randomized Controlled Trial."

Aspiration resulting from oropharyngeal dysphagia has been recognized as a serious complication after lung resection. Firstly, the primary aim of this study was to determine whether early detection of postoperative dysphagia would reduce pneumonia among these patients. Secondly, the median length of hospital stay was assessed.
