Abstract

Herein, we report the results of evaluation of the swallowing functions by video fluorography in three patients who had undergone an extraction procedure to remove a foreign body lodged in the laryngopharynx. Prolongation of the "laryngeal elevation delay time (LEDT)" and dysfunction of pharyngeal clearance were commonly observed in all the cases. Dysphagia, which is a common cause of accidental lodging of a foreign bodies in the laryngopharynx, in addition to other underlying disease and a history of intake of medications for conditions such as schizophrenia.
