Developments in dysphagia research of importance to head and neck specialists are reviewed. Emphasis is on swallowing function after head and neck surgery, in patients with compromised airways, and in association with normal aging. Analysis techniques that permit insights into the effects of specific residual impairments on swallowing physiology, have predictive capabilities, or are of value in directing treatment, are also underscored.
