Clinical implications of upper esophageal sphincter restriction in motor neurone disease

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting Abstract

Abstract

Dysphagia in MND is presumed to be due
to impaired motor function in the oropharynx. Limited published (1) and historical anecdotal data show temporary
improvement in swallow function following botox injection
or cricopharyngeal myotomy, related to removing upper
esophageal sphincter (UES) restriction.
