Rev Med Suisse Romande. 1995 Oct;115(10):811-6.
[Article in French]


Swallowing difficulties are most often evaluated by videofluoroscopy and treated by a pluridisciplinary team. Each patient requires individual rehabilitation depending on the anatomical or physiological etiology of the dysphagia. After discussing the indirect therapy (1) which is geared to improve the muscular function, the choice of diet and the compensation postures are systematically reviewed.
