Dysphagia

You're on standby watching the 'World veggie burger eating contest'. Fortunately, you don't need your Magill forceps for any of the competitors. However, your challenge is to determine why your next patient cannot swallow even clear fluids, despite his wife's persistence.

This issue explores the topic of dysphagia, with coverage of relevant anatomy and physiology, how the body processes food and transports it to the stomach, the assessment of dysphagia including the multitude of underlying causes and the management of patients with dysphagia.
