Multiple sclerosis (MS) refers to chronic inflammation of the central nervous system including the brain and spinal cord. Dysphagia is a symptom that represents challenges in clinical practice. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence of dysphagia in an Italian cohort of subjects with MS using the Dysphagia Outcome Severity Score (DOSS), based on fibre-optic endoscopy, and determine factors that correlate with the presence of swallowing problems.

Dysphagia is usually associated with malignancies of the head, neck, and upper gastrointestinal tract, but also occurs in those with tumours outside anatomic swallow regions. It can lead to aspiration...
Optical coherence tomography is commonly used to measure the retinal nerve fibre layer thickness in both normal and diseased eyes; however, variation among normal eyes is common and may limit the usef...
We investigated the predictive value of the corticobulbar tract (CBT) for dysphagia using diffusion tensor tractography in the early stage of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) for dysphagia. Forty-two pa...
Videoflurographic swallowing study in asymptomatic volunteers OBJECTIVE.: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the severity of dysphagia and various parameters of the ...
There is a general lack of published studies on the risk of mortality due to alterations in the safety of swallowing detected during the fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES). We aimed...
The purpose of this study is to identify the prevalence of pathologic eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) in the cohort of adult patients who present for specialty care in the gastroenterology ...
The aim of this research was to develop a dysphagia screening measure and evaluate the prevalence of dysphagia ant its clinical manifestation in different in age population groups.
Oropharyngeal dysphagia (OD) is a common morbidity after stroke that disrupts swallowing physiology. The investigators aimed at evaluating the prevalence of oropharyngeal dysphagia (OD) af...
The objective of the conducted study was to determine the efficacy of the native legume kernel fibres of Lupinus angustifolius Boregine (Boregine), Lupinus albus Typ Top (TypTop) and Glyci...
This study validates 3 well known dysphagia scores for dysphagia due to malignancies of the oesophagus and gastro-oesophageal junction and to the Swedish language.
Study subjects in COHORT STUDIES whose outcomes are unknown e.g., because they could not or did not wish to attend follow-up visits.(from Dictionary of Epidemiology, 5th ed.)
Variation in health status arising from different causal factors to which each birth cohort in a population is exposed as environment and society change.
Difficulty in SWALLOWING which may result from neuromuscular disorder or mechanical obstruction. Dysphagia is classified into two distinct types: oropharyngeal dysphagia due to malfunction of the PHARYNX and UPPER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; and esophageal dysphagia due to malfunction of the ESOPHAGUS.
The ratio of two odds. The exposure-odds ratio for case control data is the ratio of the odds in favor of exposure among cases to the odds in favor of exposure among noncases. The disease-odds ratio for a cohort or cross section is the ratio of the odds in favor of disease among the exposed to the odds in favor of disease among the unexposed. The prevalence-odds ratio refers to an odds ratio derived cross-sectionally from studies of prevalent cases.

Multiple Sclerosis MS
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common disabling neurological condition affecting 100,000 young adults in the UK. The condition results from autoimmune damage to myelin, causing interference in nerve signaling. Symptoms experienced depend on the pa...
Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
