Example text

Although the LES relaxes with the initiation of the pharyngeal swallow on manometry, the LES does not open on fluoroscopy until it is distended by an advancing bolus. The normal swallow-induced esophageal contraction is referred to as primary peristalsis. 7). A normal esophageal stripping wave transmits a bolus at approximately 2 cm/s. Thus, a bolus should clear the normal 25 cm esophagus in less than 15 s. Liquid barium should proceed throughout its entire length in one smooth motion. Barium tablets may proceed more rapidly in an upright individual as transit may bypass peristalsis and the tablet may drop into the stomach by gravity alone.

2b). 3b). Total pharyngeal transit time is the simple addition of both times. 1. Prolonged pharyngeal transit times increase the duration that a bolus may threaten the airway and are associated with a significantly increased risk of aspiration pneumonia. 54 7 Objective Measures on Videofluoroscopic Swallow Studies Fig. 2 Lateral fluoroscopic views for determining oropharynageal transit time.
