Title: In-office evaluation and management of dysphagia
Dysphagia is a common complaint encountered in otolaryngology clinics. Approaching the patient with dysphagia starts with a comprehensive symptomatic analysis and thorough physical examination. The recent rapid revolution in office-based procedures has a great impact in the evaluation and management of dysphagia. Currently diagnostic and therapeutic procedures can be performed safely and effectively in the office setting with the advantage of avoidance of sedation or general anesthesia.
Diagnostic and/or therapeutic procedures like Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES), Trans-nasal Esophagoscopy (TNE), Botox injections, balloon dilation, and High Resolution Manometry (HRM) will be covered in the presentation.
