Abstract

The Mendelsohn maneuver, voluntary prolongation of laryngeal elevation during the swallow, has been widely used as a compensatory strategy to improve upper esophageal sphincter (UES) opening and bolus flow. Recent research suggests that when used as a rehabilitative exercise, it significantly improves duration of hyoid movement and positively impacts duration of UES opening (DOUESO). The data presented here were derived from that same prospective crossover study of 18 participants with dysphagia post-stroke evaluated with videofluoroscopy after treatment using the Mendelsohn maneuver versus no treatment. Results demonstrate gains in the extent of hyoid movement and UES opening and improvements in coordination of structural movements with each other as well as with bolus flow.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 25 March 2013.
All research outputs
#6,179,494
of 12,230,159 outputs
Outputs from Dysphagia (0179051X)
#499
of 746 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#59,579
of 153,176 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Dysphagia (0179051X)
#5
of 10 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,230,159 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 746 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.0. This one is in the 32nd percentile – i.e., 32% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 153,176 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 60% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 10 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 5 of them.
