Abstract

Dysphagia is a common complaint encountered in otolaryngology clinics. Approaching the patient with dysphagia starts with a comprehensive symptomatic analysis and thorough physical examination. The recent rapid revolution in office-based procedures has a great impact in the evaluation and management of dysphagia. Currently, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures can be performed safely and effectively in the office setting with the advantage of avoidance of sedation or general anesthesia.
