Diagnostic aspects of dysphagia

Ekberg, Olle LU (2000) In Acta Oto-Laryngologica. Supplement p.225-228
Abstract
Swallowing problems are common, with a prevalence of 5-30% in different populations. Clinical work-up must start with a careful evaluation of the symptomatology, which should then lead to appropriate investigations. A crucial point in the evaluation of these patients is the comparison between the patient's symptoms and the findings during the examination. Symptoms and findings often do not match, or incidental endoscopic or manometric findings are taken as an indication for treatment. This review tries to elucidate this relationship.
