The second edition of this well-received book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date description of the diagnosis and management of dysphagia, including oral, pharyngeal, and esophageal dysfunction. All aspects of dysphagia are covered, with detailed consideration of anatomy, physiology, and pathology. In addition to a variety of benign and malignant disease entities, signs and symptoms, and treatment approaches, many other relevant topics are addressed, including endoscopy, manometry, malnutrition, dehydration, oral care, dementia, ethics, and the social and psychologic impacts of dysphagia. Specific aspects of importance in pediatric and geriatric patients are highlighted. This edition features a number of completely new chapters focusing on, among other subjects, dysphagia in further disease contexts and following laryngectomy and radiation therapy. The authors are without exception world-leading experts in their fields. The book will be of value for practitioners in all specialties involved in the evaluation and treatment of dysphagia. It is therefore a truly multidisciplinary project.

• Presents unrivalled comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the diagnosis and management of dysphagia
• Describes a wide variety of disease entities, signs and symptoms, and treatment approaches
• Includes features specific to pediatric and geriatric patients
• Covers everything from basic anatomy and physiology to patient care

Olle Ekberg is Professor of Diagnostic Radiology in the Department of Translational Medicine, Lund University, Malmö, Sweden. He is also a Senior Consultant in the Department of Medical Imaging and Physiology, Skåne University Hospital, Malmö, Sweden. He has been involved in diagnosis of swallowing disorders since 1975. He has published more than 300 peer-reviewed scientific articles, mostly on swallowing but also in other areas of gastrointestinal radiology. In his work as a Senior Consultant, Dr. Ekberg collaborates with a multidisciplinary team including speech-and-language pathologists. He is a board member of the European Society of Swallowing Disorders and a counsellor in the US to the Dysphagia Research Society. He is Associated Editor of the journal Dysphagia and Editor-in-Chief of Eurorad. His research concerning dysphagia ranges from experimental animal studies on neurotransmittors in the pharynx, rheology, feeding, and respiration to social and psychologic impacts on patients’ quality of life.
