Comprehensive Management of Swallowing Disorders by Ricardo L. Carrau (Editor); Thomas Murry (Editor); Rebecca J. Howell (Editor)
First published in hardback in 1999, this classic work on swallowing is reissued by Plural in paperback. It remains as current now as when first published, focusing particularly on giving a solid grounding in the anatomy and physiology of the normal swallow and covering the subject from a multitude of perspectives. Little wonder then, that in his new foreword, John C Rosenbek, Ph.D, Professor and Chair, Department of Communicative Disorders, University of Florida, describes it thus: Scientific and clinical activities in dysphagia are among the fastest growing in healthcare. Speech-language pathologists, physicians, surgeons, nurses, dietitians, dentists, occupation and physical therapists, physiologists, and social workers are among the professionals doing the work. The highest levels of research and clinical productivity in dysphagia require responsible scholarship, the ability to cope with ambiguity, respect for interdisciplinary cooperation, and a recognition that dysphagia's effects on people extend well beyond mealtime. Comprehensive Management of Swallowing Disorders, edited by Ricardo L. Carrau, M.D., and Thomas Murry, Ph.D., is as perfect a contribution to the field as can be imagined. It contains 55 chapters; authors are drawn from all the major professions presently involved in dysphagia, and each profession's perspective is clearly outlined. The field's entire content is represented: normal and abnormal swallowing; child and adult; oropharynx and esophagus; structural and functional etiologies; prognosis; evaluation and treatment; surgical, medical, and behavioral management; rehabilitation and compensation. General books risk being a mile wide and a foot deep. Not so this book. The reader is not limited to wading; immersion is possible even for the experienced practitioner. Myotomy, vocal fold augmentation and medialization, Nissen fundoplication, Zenker's diverticulectomy, and gastrostomy are among the surgical procedure

Dysphagia Following Stroke by Stephanie K. Daniels; Maggie-Lee Huckabee
After a stroke, one of the basic needs for a patient is to be able to swallow in order to eat and then to have the motor skills to resume speaking. Daniels (speech pathology, Baylor School of Medicine) and Huckabee (communication disorders, University of Canterbury, NZ) give therapists and clinicians a thorough training manual covering assessment, examinations and treatment options. While intended for professionals, the writing is clear enough for concerned family members and friends of the patient to find it helpful.

Rare Disorders that Cause Dysphagia by Violet O. Cox
Rare Disorders That Cause Dysphagia: A Guide for Speech-Language Pathologists is a resource manual to help medical speech-language pathologists identify the rare disorders that cause dysphagia and offer practical, therapeutic approaches to treatment. Most medical speech-language pathologists are acquainted with common etiologies of dysphagia, such as strokes, head injury, brain tumors, etc. However, there are less common disorders and syndromes that contribute to dysphagia that are not included in most textbooks and reference guides. Consequently, many clinicians who specialize in swallowing disorders are unaware of the impact that most uncommon diseases can have on swallowing. Clearly organized, each chapter is divided into six sections: Definition, History, Etiology, Epidemiology, Clinical Presentation, and Management of Dysphagia. Each chapter begins with a list of key terms that are bolded throughout the text and included in a glossary.
