Resumen (Abstract):
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Oregon Health and Science University, "Chronic
dysphagia was defined as dysphagia that persists more than 1 year. Summary of Background Data. Dysphagia
is commonly reported in the early postoperative period after anterior cervical spine surgery. Although
prevertebral soft tissue swelling (STS) has been hypothesized as a potential risk factor for development of
dysphagia, no studies have assessed STS' relation to dysphagia that persists more than 1 year. Sixty-seven
patients who underwent elective anterior cervical spine surgery from 2008 to 2011 and completed a dysphagia
questionnaire were included in the study. Prevertebral STS was measured at the caudal endplates of C2 and
C6 on plain lateral cervical radiographs preoperatively, immediately after, and 6 and 12 weeks postoperatively.
The presence and severity of chronic dysphagia was assessed using the Bazaz-Yoo Dysphagia Score. The
prevalence of dysphagia in relation to STS was evaluated using the Wilcoxon rank-sum test.
